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 â€“ 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, itâ€™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 plateâ€¦
No dachshunds were harmed in the making of this post.
Anyway â€“ 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 <â€” Pulling on my big girl swim panties. Going by myself was quite the feat because Iâ€™ve been really relying on my workout buddy (DadHTP) to motivate me to swim. He called off today, but I didnâ€™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 â€“ anyone else get inundated by themed presents? Love them or secretly hate them? Love the weenie dogs but not the penguins.
