Writer's Block: Workin' for a livin'

What would you consider the worst job in the world, and why?

This one's easy. hellbob and I say it every time we watch the show: a cameraman on the show Dirty Jobs! All of the disgustingness that Mike Rowe goes through x2! The cameramen have to go in first and they have to get down into the gross stuff, and I'm sure they don't get paid nearly what he does.

Lazy Sunday

Lazy day today. Actually took down the Xmas tree though.
I also washed my dog. I figured that we'd need to bathe him some day and so I should probably find out how he reacts to it so we'd know what to expect. I just took him in the shower with me and he didn't bark or whine at all. He didn't love it, but he didn't fight it. I was really prepared for the possibility of finally hearing the "Shiba scream" because I've read that many Shibas just hate being bathed. More proof that we have the most awesome pup ever!

Have I mentioned yet how much I absolutely LOVE the nook?! Thanks to the Hennepin County Library and the nook blog's Free Fridays I haven't run out of anything to read since getting it! There were about 800 titles at HCL available for ebook checkout when we got our nook on Black Friday, and in just the month and a half since then the number of titles available from them has jumped to over 4700! They've got a really nice mix of titles available too. I've gone through the entire catalog of ebooks and added titles that sounded interesting to my library wish list. I've got over 300 titles there, so I shouldn't run out of reading material any time soon!
