When I was in high school, I had an obsession with penguins. I loved penguins. One year, at Christmas, everyone bought me penguin stuff. Penguin blankets, penguin light switch plates, penguin mugs, penguin earrings (oh, God – no!). I was swimmingly in penguin. Finally, I had to tell everyone that I no longer liked penguins just to stop the barrage of penguin gifts.
Now, it’s kind of like that with dachshunds. For my birthday alone, I got a dachshund pen, a dachshund clock, and a dachshund burp cloth. Except I really, really love everything dachshund. There is no going overboard. When it comes to dachshund paraphernalia, there is no version of tacky.
Hah hah. A dachshund corn on the cob. Get it?!
Someone tried to steal a beet off my plate…
No dachshunds were harmed in the making of this post.
Anyway – back to dinner. It was scrumptious, dachshund corn on the cob and all. Also included: cast-iron tofu with brown rice and cilantro (a little dry but still tasty) and beets.
Three cheers for meeeeeeeeeeeee. I made it to the pool today, all my myself <— Pulling on my big girl swim panties. Going by myself was quite the feat because I’ve been really relying on my workout buddy (DadHTP) to motivate me to swim. He called off today, but I didn’t want to miss my workout, so I went by myself. I usually swim 18 laps, but felt so pooped by 16, that I listened to my body and called it a day. Good times!
So – anyone else get inundated by themed presents? Love them or secretly hate them? Love the weenie dogs but not the penguins.
I remember when I was a lifeguard, I would get nervous when very pregnant ladies would come to the pool – I bet you are making lifeguards nervous now ;).
Also, those are the funnest corn on the cob skewers!
