Odds and ends

Strange sighting the other day. A teenage boy, dressed like a trenchcoat mafia member, riding a Segway on the sidewalk along a busy suburban road. Do you think it was his grandmother's?

Don't ever wake a dog up in the middle of a vigorous dream! I made the mistake of doing so to Sasha the other day and she tried to bite me. She just sat there looking befuddled for another hour or so after that. I'd wondered a few weeks ago whether dogs understand the concept of dreams. I'd now guess they don't.

What a strange reaction by Sasha. I wonder what she was dreaming?

I saw a Segway yesterday, those things are weird.

Cat - she's been getting into it with Ripley over a toy. The toy was lying next to her while she slept so I think she was dreaming that Ripley was trying to take it.

I saw my first Segway earlier this year being ridden by an airport security guy. I don't see the point. If you can walk....walk!

There's a wikipedia entry for "trenchboat mafia"? They have arrived!

I found you thru Splotchy, btw. Hi!

Hey cat, welcome! Now I'm going to have to start distinguishing between you and justacoolcat. :)

I'm continually impressed by the volume of wikipedia entries.
