Here's Wink in her purse. She went to work with me yesterday: just getting out of the house was a whirlwind. But she did great. She was pretty scared, though, of the trucks and cars in downtown Portland, and on a potty break walk, she froze in the middle of the sidewalk and I had to go back and pick her up and carry her across the street. As cute as that purse is, I kind of feel silly carrying her in it. A year ago I would have scoffed at someone doing that. Oh well. I guess we become what we fear. Or something like that.
On another note, I can't believe that I cried like a baby last night. LIKE A BABY! It's a whole new world with DVR, and we're just discovering how to record shows and watch them...it's pretty easy, but the concept, like a dog in the house, is a new one. The first recording on the DVR was yesterday's Oprah, and lo and behold, it was the My Favorite Things show for the year. AdRi couldn't stop grinning ear to ear, and at one point said, "It's better than winning the lottery because you don't have to decide what to do with the money!"
This year she kept the show a surprise, and filled the audience with Katrina volunteers. They thought the show was about sharing their experience. Surprise!!!!! I started crying right then and there. On My Favorite Things, everyone in the audience gets every featured My Favorite Thing from Oprah. Last night, they got laptops, iPods, Ugg boots, Burberry coats and purses, and the list goes on. And throughout, vignettes featured the volunteers, what they did and saw, and how selflessly they gave to help the victims of Katrina. Oh. My. God. Loved it! So sad. So much bling! It was dueling emotions=really weird. And with DVR, we just flew the commercials. It's a whole new world peeps.
So there's my odd post for you. A little bit of dog blogging, and how I cried watching my first DVR show.
