this morning i woke up and gazed into the big, chocolate-brown eyes of mr bix and thought “man, i love my dog. he is so awesome.” i gave him a good morning hug, stretched, and dangled my feet over the edge of the bed. mr bix sat next to me, and he was just so darn cute that i had to give him another hug.
that’s when i stepped in dog vomit. placed conveniently just so.
i looked down into those conniving, googly eyes and i swear that evil canine was smiling at me. the jerk. i thought about how i could turn him into a cool hat as i wiped the puke from the bottom of my foot. and while the thought was pretty tempting, i could never do that. i love that googly-eyed jerk of a dog.
but ‘010 will not win today. i’m calling a “zack morris time-out” on the beginning of a crappy day. instead, i will share the new kick-ass mix tape i made last night. ok ok, it’s not an actual mix tape. more like a mix playlist. but mix playlist doesn’t have the right sound, so i will call it a mix “tape”. the quotation marks make all the difference. the one i made last night is particularly b’dass.
i call it the “suck it ‘010” mix. it has a little bit of everything, as a well made mix does. without further delay, here it is:
1) black betty- ram jam
2) black dog- led zeppelin
3) heroes- david bowie

i will not give in to the temptation to call this day a defeat. instead, i’m going to freakin rock ‘010s socks off with good music, a delish microwave meal (the delish is a lie. microwave meal is a truth), and a date with the Scientist tonight.
hug of the day…me & derek. derek looks gangsta.
