- Can we stop calling every dog that’s a poodle-cross a “Whatever-a-doodle?” I stumbled across someone calling their dog a “Sheepadoodle” and all I can wonder is if it’s a sheep crossed with a poodle. Or is it a Old English sheepdog crossed with a poodle? How hard is it to say that your dog is a sheepdog-poodle cross? What’s next, a Boxadoodle? Dachadoodle? Stop giving ridiculous names to these dogs so you can charge someone $2000 for a mixed-breed, mmmkay? (I will, however, admit that the sheepdog-poodle cross is pretty stinkin’ cute though.)
- Good ol’ SBux is building an 11th location here in Kamloops. With a population of less than 90,000 people, I think that’s a little ridiculous, no? Hell, there will be 5 in a 2-block radius! Don’t get me wrong, I love myself a vanilla latte or iced caramel macchiato, but that’s just a little crazy, IMO.
- I am a firm believer that Christmas decorations shouldn’t go up before Remembrance Day. It’s already a pain that I have to see Christmas junk for sale in Costco in August. That being said, I’m not opposed to putting your Christmas lights up before then. Lets face it: Canada frequently decides that it’s WINTER NOW and before you know it, it’s -10°C and you’re outside on a frozen ladder trying to hang lights while you can’t feel your toes. JUST DON’T TURN THEM ON, YOU CRAZIES! I put our lights up the other day but their switch will remain in the “off” position until December 1.
- And speaking of crazies and crazy situations … I have one word to wrap Thursday’s dump up: Trump. I just can’t wrap my head around it. Someone on Facebook said she’s waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop out and say that we’ve been punked, and I would have to agree. Hang in there, folks. It’s going to be an interesting 4 years for all of us.
