ah, Jameson's

Tags: ,

I took the dog for a nice long walk by the creek this afternoon, and afterward we stopped by Wok'n'Roll and picked up some Chinese food. There was a liquor store nearby, and I checked inside for Jameson's. I've been indulging heavily in THE WIRE lately, of course, and McNulty is on a tear again, which for him includes drinking Jameson's hard. I'd never had Jameson's before, but hey, McNulty drinks it! So I bought some. (If you're wondering: I like my whiskey the way Batman likes his Robins: twelve years old.)

This late afternoon and evening has been given to watching season one of THE WIRE on DVD while eating Chinese food and drinking Jameson's on the rocks, with occasional forays into Jameson's and Coke. The verdict: McNulty has good taste in Irish whiskey. And Jameson's is highly effective at making me tipsy and lowering my reaction time.

DOG. "What's that you're drinking, Boss?" *snurfles cup*
HINES. "It's Jameson's and Coke, honey. It's not for dogs --"
DOG. *slurp slurp*
HINES. "HEY!"
DOG. "Wow, Boss, that's not bad."
HINES. "I am not contributing to the delinquency of a puppy."
DOG. "I'm almost a year old!"
HINES. "YOU ONLY WEIGH THIRTY POUNDS."
DOG. "I want to play tug of war! YAY!"
DOG. *jumps off couch*
DOG. *faceplants*
HINES. *facepalm*
DOG. "Jameson's is fun!"
DOG. *leaps back onto couch*
DOG. *plays several rounds of tug-of-war with an old sock, then curls up and falls asleep*
HINES. "I'm going to miss this. You know that?"
DOG. *snores*

(Due to unavoidable circumstances, as discussed in an f-locked post, dog is going to live with Ma for a while. This is a sadness. OTOH, we will be back together before too long.)

PUPPIES!

Dude, I just gotta say, your dog stories make me so happy. (Okay, except for the one where she doesn't get to stay with you for a while - I hope it goes quickly.)

They make me happy, too. I don't think I've ever had a dog who inspired the kind of insanity this one does. Maybe it's just that I'm older and more in a position to appreciate it.

I hope the time passes quickly, too.

Hee! That's adorable.

She is adorable EVEN WHEN STEALING BOOZE. Fortunately, I kept the rest of my evening's Jameson's from her by drinking it before she could try anything. Also, she was distracted by fierce socks.

(She decided to turn in for the night about three hours ago. I will probably have to wake her for last pee.)

The way Batman likes his Robins in *very specific* time periods.

This made me giggle a lot.

I swear, my best LJ content these days is dog-related. I didn't think I'd become a pet-blogger, but there you go.

I have no idea what I'll be posting about when she's up at Ma's. Probably guns again.

OMG SO CUTE. ALSO SMOOSH.

AWWWWWWWW. *smoofits everyone concerned* How are you liking The Wire, thus far? It's honestly one of my favorite shows.

Oh, it's totally one of mine, too. I'm rewatching Season One while keeping up with the current season; I've seen every episode of the series.

(Did I ever tell you about my Lord King Badfic HBO series crossover, in which Omar gets zapped back to ancient Rome and starts palling around with Titus Pullo? I think Omar would do well in Rome, especially if he had his Deagle with him for the first couple of weeks...)

Timmy approves!

*ahahahaa* I still want the one basingstoke was telling me about long and long ago -- Omar in Deadwood. C'mon, he's *totally* a gunslinger.

OMG, Omar in Deadwood would rock! :) He wouldn't have any shortage of bad people to steal from.

I wonder if he'd have a good chance to get established in Deadwood, or if there'd be too many folks gunning for him off the bat, given the racial and sexual mores of the time. Yeah, there were periods where things weren't as bad as they later became, but Omar could've had lots of folks trying to kill him on sight.

Of course, for Omar that's pretty much a typical day.

Dog for the win! Plus, "snurfle" is a wonderful word.

"Snurfle" was one of my father's custom words. I've been using it since I was a kid, so I don't actually think of it as such -- it's one of those weird family things.

(We also have a family thank you-you're welcome based on the name of a pharmaceutical company. "Thank you" is "Merck;" "You're welcome" is "Sharpe and Dohme." I'm not entirely sure where that one came from.)
