oh, AND I'll be sending Yeti over to see the people who cut down the trees.

MOO-HOO-HOOOO-HAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAA-HAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry::lol:

:lol:

Um, Tom, BTW, West Coast DOES include central valley. Doesn't just mean beach towns.....when I say East Coast I could be referring to Boston, w. Virginia, New York, anywhere.......

Um, Susie, OK. :lol:

If Fresnoites/Fresnoteers/Fresnoans wanna be called West Coast, then I suppose there's nothing more to be said.

<ya right>

Boston's ON the water, NYC is IN the water, and W.Va makes me think of coal and appalachia, even if one corner IS ~50mi from D.C.!

Hehehehe :lol:

Good luck w/ the Yeti.

Gah! I sure hope there isn't a yeti-see/yeti-doo aspect of his personality w/ Stinker setting such a bad example as of late!! :ph34r:

The yeti does like to shop, so maybe you can take him out for some holiday fun. He didn't seem to mind the crowds either.

Hi Susie!!! :D

So good to have you back--and get ready 'cuz he's on the way.

Hi all..........

(waving the tiniest wave)

I don't think I"m quite back yet. URGENT - please re-route Yeti's plans. Send him..........well send him somewhere where he can be handled properly. We're not ready to receive him here. We are actually on a small sabbatical..............

good gawd. I am entirely without mojo and anything smacking of it. :huh:

Perhaps will mix one of Peter's very serious martinis (ewwwwwww, could never drink that poison, has to taste like candy!!!).........

Dingy, out.

Oh My God- yesterday and Thursday I had these super long posts and they BOTH got deleted. :(<_< I had no energy to go back and redo them. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

The yeti is here. He's VERY happy...seems to like Angus a LOT (oh no- yetis don't eat dogs do they?) and Angus knows his language!

My sister saw him and she thinks he should BE the pinata so we're working on a costume that will be candy-filled and break when two year olds hit him (he says he doesn't mind that as they don't hit very hard.

I can keep him for awhile if you need me to- he's actually quite sweet and he and Angus are getting on terrifically!

We're now getting into some serious winter weather here (UGH), so I would happily take the yeti in next. He should be out in this good (hah) Canadian Cold with that fur of his. In fact, he would be an amazing addition to my BIL's competitive dog team way up north. Mygod....they'd be FLYING over those mountain passages....and the Ididerod is happening in the next couple of months. Hey, they let poodles run it...and if they disqualify a yeti, we could disguise him as a standard poodle by clipping him, perhaps in the 'circus clip', with large topknots and things...

Yes, we could have something here...

Yes- I shall send the yeti out to do this as well!!!! OMG- maybe he IS our mojo (Mr Mojo Rising!). BTW- he gives excellent neck and shoulder massages with those big hands...wouldn't let him touch anything else though :ph34r:

Ice storm? OH NO!

Uhm Emily- the WHAAAT? IdidherRod? It's the Iditarod (which kind of looks like Idiot-a-rod :lol: :lol:

:P :P :P :P The IdideRod must be the one they let poodles in....and Rod Stewart?

:lol::lol: Of course...A silly slip-up on my part. The I Did Her Rod is the Adult International Dogsled Race.

A lot of whips involved, I hear...I assume to spur the team on... :o:lol:

Don't know if my BIL enters a team in this one, but the yeti could work quite well there.

Awww Boehv! I swear my method of jumping Back TWO pages in the browser works to retrieve 'lost' posts!!

You use IE, I presume? (It's same w/ Firefox anyway)

The [bACK] button, on its far right, has a tiny arrow/triangle pointing down. Clicking that lets you go Back multiple pages, skipping the pesky 'in-between page'. Simply clicking the [bACK] button itself just makes you ping-pong off that 'in-between page'. (Ack it's so hard to SAY and so easy to SHOW! :angry: )

The yeti is here. He's VERY happy...seems to like Angus a LOT (oh no- yetis don't eat dogs do they?) and Angus knows his language!

:lol:

My sister saw him and she thinks he should BE the pinata so we're working on a costume that will be candy-filled and break when two year olds hit him (he says he doesn't mind that as they don't hit very hard.

ROFL!! :lol::lol:

Or so Angus says he said!!

What if it's a diabolical plot hatched by a previously unchallenged alpha-dog and Angus was actually told by the Yeti that he's up for anything EXCEPT any situation which could remind him of a mob of bat-wielding dwarves!!!

(Bad bad memories - and no, he doesn't want to talk about it)

P.S. After my wonderful experience w/ El Pollo Loco (1st restaurant of ANY sort in ~2.5yrs!! Ugh sometimes SO very weary of cooking everysingledamnthingiputinmymouth myself), I got a little too ballsy w/ expanding the diet. I think it caused a little Nitwit Spice to come out yesterday, as well as a reprise of the old cold-to-the-core bs. 70 degrees indoors and I'm wearing a winter hat :( .

Better today I think. :)

The ACTUAL start of the Iditerod is in Wasilla, AK, where my brother Pat last lived. :) (or at least it's where he went to pick up the mail)

They do a ceremonial, photo-op start in downtown Anchorage the day before.

Um.......Tom.............tell me what you ate at El Pollo? Is it really gluten-free now? I tried to find info on the site and couldn't..........but dear gawd, there is one right by the Target, less than three miles from my house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, 'twas young Jenn's mother who died. Jenn is only 28 - so sad.

Now lest you think this post indicates I have my mojo back, it does not. :angry:

But I am so glad Yeti is at Bev's - really takes the pressure off me. And then yes, I say he's onto Emily's where it's nice and cold, and then a poodle coif for him. Perfect.

:) mmmmmmm MMMMM!!

I think it always was gluten-free, but the info isn't on the site.

Your mojo-less eucalyptically-deprived tragedy-affected ( :( ) self may have missed my 1st post on The Crazy Chicken.

I'd seen EPL mentioned several times over the months as a fave of celiacs, and I see this one ALL the time, as it's just 1 door away from the Trader Joe's just 0.6m from me. (HEY! Almost an even kilometer!)

And in some sort of shopping-synchronicity coincidence, MY Tar-jzhay(sp?) is there too! :D )

So I searched c.com and the only negative post was a dingo-created thread from long ago. EVERYone else says the chicken and pintos are fine. Not the refrieds, but no idea why. Corn torts of course also, but not for me. I don't recall the salsa sitch offhand.

Do the search. Read the posts. Enjoy the Pollo! :)

Oh Emily!! I forgot to ask - how far north IS this BIL? Yukon?

He's in Tagish, which is a community about an hour and a half north of Whitehorse. He's out in the bush, with about seventy sled dogs. Talk about rustic.....

And he's all for putting the yeti on his Iditerod team, but he must first make sure our beast qualifies as a racing animal. So, he's to let me know, but it all looks good. :lol:

Man, my mojo's slipping, as well...just got back from our Ottawa Senators vs. The Rangers. Uggghhhh, our boys stunk. Looks like a totally different team, all of a sudden. We even left a bit early, which is unheard of. We all need to give some mojo to my funked-out team!!

Enough of this...my mojo is in great form compared to yours, Susie. I'm very sorry about your friend's mom. You have good reason to be in a funk. (funky?) ;)
