We May Be Stupid, But At Least We Married the Right People

In anticipation of last night's viewing of "Alien: The Director's Cut" (because you just can't watch "Alien" too many times, can you?), Alex and I were poking around in the bulletin boards for the film on IMDb, and came across the following post, titled, "IMPORTANT QUESTION:"

My foots [sic] itchy. Do you think I have an alien hiding in it secretly?
What do I do?

And then we laughed, for at least five minutes solid, until both of us were wheezing and crying actual tears. Do we have a problem, or is the thought of someone watching "Alien," and then getting scared every time they have an itch as hysterical as we thought it was? If it's the former, don't answer.

I post this while waiting for my camera to charge so I can post puppy pictures tonight, due to popular (and impatient) demand. Tonight. I swear.

UPDATE: And here they are, with an hour to spare. A few more are on flickr.

When attempting to coax a small pile of puppies to hold still long enough to photograph, it helps if the preschooler corralling them has a smidge of coconut-shrimp sauce on her face.

Puppy faces. Good therapy. That little toot in the middle, looking right at me? My favorite.

  13. OMG!! Beautiful puppies.I need all of them! As long as you send the toddler with the shrimp sauce to keep them corralled, we should be fine!

  14. Those puppies are soooo cute. I miss my poodle. I want another one. Would love all of yours. I don't think I could pick just one.

    Psycho with an itch on his foot is creepy and funny at the same time. I'm bipolar and I still feel like I'm the sanest person on the planet sometimes. And they say I'M crazy!

  15. Oh! They are absolutely too cute for words! (As is the lovely Bella, of course.) I'm sold on the concept of non-shedding dogs, and would love a poodle when we adopt our next dog (in the distant future, when my good Bo has gone on to Doggy Heaven).

  16. The one in the middle is my favorite, too! I want him! Too cute! Yes, too cute!

    I like the SP where the moms are trying to give the kids chicken pox.

    You could say all kinds of things about "Alien" and how it created a genre in science fiction and broke new ground, etc and etc. But it's still just a darned scary movie! Creepy. I can still get creeped out watching it!

    Thanks for posting the puppy pics. Piles of puppies in puppy pictures, posing proudly with the pretty princess, poking puppy noses past preschooler arms, predictably perfect pets! :)

  17. I'm pretending I'm not pondering puppynapping, unless I can get a poodle present! :)

    Okay, sorry, I couldn't resist. Sorry, really really sorry!

    P.S. You probably know that your daughter has absolutely MESMERIZING eyes!

  18. Ooh, how did you like the director's cut? Was it superior to the original film?

  19. We watched that version, too! It only took 17 hours to complete it. Geez.
