random friday facts, sponsored by the alphabet

I've been REALLY enjoying these ABC posts, so here's mine.  You might need a helmet for this one.

Favorite color: Lately I'm digging dark purple.
Gold or silver: I'm not a pimp.

Quote from a movie: "Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex Supplicants, they chose a new form for him - that of a giant sloar!  Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the sloar that day I can tell you!"  Yeah, I didn't have to look any of that up.

Happy Friday!  Pick a letter and leave me one of your ABCs!

Side note: under the news of "sad but official," one of my roommates is moving out.  Drop me an email if you're interested in living in Cupcake Puppy Triathlon castle.


  1. I totally want to come live in your cupcake puppy triathlon castle. I mean, somebody has to give those poor dogs some love and attention :)

  2. This is the best ABC post I've read yet!

    As for dogs, we had a trainer over yesterday to whip them into shape. All it did was make they uber-hyper. We have a lot of work to do.

  3. I love this ABC post, especially the dog pic! And is it bad that I could tell what movie that quote was from 5 words into it?

  4. This post made me laugh (you), gargle fasdkjfbnakljbf at my desk (molly) and drool (food. duh).

    Who doesn't want to live in the cupcake castle?

  5. I played the violin and I sing, but I was always jealous of the band. They were just so much cooler than the orchestra. Sorry to hear about your roomie. I think you live by my sister, but she just found one or I'd try to put you in touch.

  6. Food pics making me hungry...and make me wish I could do more than microwave cooking...

  7. 1. Cupcake puppy triathlon castle combines three (four?) of life's best things.
    2. Reading your blog makes me hungry. Every. Single. Time.
    3. Chore I dislike: Swiffering. I make my roommate do the entire apt including my room. I'll do anything else, just not that.

  8. So... how does it work? Do I start from A and fill in my own kinda questions or what???

  9. LOVE these ABC posts and love your pups <3

    ANd seriously people - walk in the crosswalk!

  10. All those food pics look awesome! You can make me something and send it. :)

  11. mark me down as interested in the triathlon cupcake puppy palace. Too bad it's not in Hawaii

  12. This was the best ABC post yet! Very funny!

  13. I hate to tempt you any further but since I've seen your house referred to as the cupcake castle in multiple comments I thought you might appreciate this :) Sorry in advance! http://crazyaboutcupcakes.wordpress.com/

  14. Love your ABC's so funny!!! This was the best blog trend yet!!

  15. Good post. Got my first giveaway going on with doggie stuff - hint, hint!

  16. Hahaha, I'm glad I know someone else who is obsessed with their dog as I am.

    Best line: "I'm not a pimp."

  17. You have the BEST photos ever, seriously so fun!

  18. I played the French horn! And, technically, I guess I still could (though it has been sitting in my parents' house, untouched, for a LONG time).

  19. I drove past your house on Friday and waved. I'd move in, but pretty sure my husband would be less than thrilled if I left the boys behind. ;o)

    Great ABCs!
