A Bloody Stump of a Foot

We had a bit of a drama-filled afternoon today. I stepped out of the shower, only to discover the floor drenched in blood!

Somehow, Pica had caught one of her toenails on her baby gate and ripped it right out. If she were a human baby, there'd surely be a lawsuit, right? Still, our poor little furbaby!


One gigantic claw
I held her steady as best I could. Jack Russell terriers don't really do "steady". There was always something twitching or shaking! Sexy Nerd applied styptic powder, which THANK GOODNESS we had on hand. If you have a pet, be sure to buy some of this. Ours came free with Pica's toenail clippers. In the 10+ years we've had her, we've used it only once before, when a nail was clipped a tad too short, and it stopped the bleeding almost instantly. This time, however..

...it kept bleeding...

...and bleeding...

...AND BLEEDING...

(Ack!)

After more than an hour of using my best wresting moves on Pica, and with almost all of our styptic powder gone, the b…

Goat Cheese Dip for Parties, Sandwiches, and Salads

Sexy Nerd's parents recently gifted us a fancy assortment of cheese from a goat farm near their home. Soon after, a certain someone said he hates goat cheese and wanted nothing to do with it. More for me! I turned the goat cheese into dip, which I served with tortilla chips and buttery crackers.

That same someone who hates goat cheese? Yeah, he pigged out on the dip.

Later, when I combined the leftover dip with milk to create a DELICIOUS dressing, the goat cheese hater enjoyed a gigantic salad covered in it.

Oh, and this same person who would never, ever eat goat cheese may have also made himself a sandwich on two different occasions, substituting my goat cheese dip in place of mayonnaise both times.

So, you know...
You're Not Fooling Anyone, Sexy Nerd!

We visited Boston, Salem, Iceland, Denmark, Baltimore, and HEAVEN, all in one trip.






I asked Sexy Nerd to take my photo in front of these reindeer. This is the only photo he took.




Sexy Nerd enjoyed hearing the stories at the Hans Christian Andersen museum. They're a bit more strange than I remembered. And I remembered them being pretty strange!

The World's Largest Collection of Beer Bottles (All unopened and no repeats.)

Going through my vacation photos, I came to this one and thought Is that...a swastika?? We never noticed it while we were at the Carlsberg Brewery. According to the Carlsberg website, these elephants were built in 1901 and swastikas used to be a common symbol of the company, as they represented good luck, prosperity, and goodness in India.




Sexy Nerd hates raisins, yet he happily ordered his Glogg with added raisins.
