A New Breed for Guard Dog

19 Jul

I twitted about this article last night but the video is a must see, so I’ve posted it  here just in case you missed it on my timeline.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials Monday released a video of a robbery attempt foiled by an enraged and barking Chihuahua, hoping the public can identify the two assailants.

The attempted robbery took place July 7 about 7:30 p.m. at Ace Smoke Shop on North Lake Avenue in Altadena. The video shows two hooded men, one armed with a rifle, running into the store and demanding money.

The store owner quickly begins placing money in a robber’s backpack. As he does, his Chihuahua erupts into ferocious barking at the two men, who beat a hasty retreat, running out of the store with the backpack but taking less money than they could’ve gotten.

At one point, one of the robbers even points his rifle at the diminutive but undaunted pooch, who chases the pair out of the store and down the street.

Neither the owner nor the dog was injured in the incident.

The suspects are described at male Latinos between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches. One wore a black hooded sweatshirt, white shorts, black shoes and a red bandanna, and carried a black and gray backpack. The other wore a black jacket with yellow trim, dark shirt and pants, and a black ski mask, and was armed with a rifle.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives at (626) 296-2114 or (626) 798-1131. The public may also provide information anonymously by calling (800) 222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus the tip to CRIMES (274637), or at the website

Making The Tree Look Taller

21 Jun


How come I had never seen or heard about these videos before? Is it because I’m not a man, there for have no reason to make my tree look taller? But what about my back and chest hair? You know I could have used some pointers!  Anyways I heard about one of these videos on The Pretty Good Podcast and of course curiosity got the best of me, I had to rush on over to my computer  to check out the video for myself. It turns out Gillette put a bunch of videos on YouTube to show guys how to, well, shave different parts of their body.

Not wanting to be a selfish hostess on my own blog, I decided to share a couple of the videos with all of you. I believe this may also count as a Public Service Announcement.

Girls you can thank me later.Winking smile

Warning: You might not want to watch the first video with your kid sitting in your lap or standing by you.

Side note: Just because the actors on these videos are blue does not mean they are in anyway related to me.Freezing






A Chococat Adventure

3 Jun

Its not the adrenaline pumping thrill of the chase that scars me..

Getting potentially caught doesn’t scare me…

Embarrassment… Awkwardness… Humiliation… Harassment….  HA!!! I laugh at thee!!!

What scares  me might you ask?  Well, when it comes to my weekly coffee escapade, what scares me the most is how my sensitive tummy is going to react to the sludgy mud water a vast majority of institutions somehow consider to be coffee.

So for this weeks big adventure, Chococat, with his cool and suave Sinatra Fedora on, will show you how I get into a business that I know for a fact has somewhat decent coffee.

Since Chococat felt suave and smooth with his classic fedora, we decided to record our intrusion with a black and white 1920’s homage.

Not For The Weak of Heart

Coffee Mission


This week’s video should have been longer but for some reason my phone kept stopping mid video. I was able to get 3 short clip that I  put together for you.  After watching the video, I noticed that you couldn’t really see the kitchenette. So, to provide the cinematic experience that I’m sure all of you are expecting and have come accustomed to, I went back later that day to take some additional pictures.  Don’t they say a thief always goes back to the scene of the crime?

This weeks coffee target was unimpressive to say the least. The kitchen was super tiny and very sloppy. It almost felt like the kitchen was an afterthought. That some mid level manager had an epiphany that perhaps employees might need to get water or coffee while toiling away in the maze of cubicles.  They even had a copier in the already claustrophobically small space. The only upside to the unorganized mess of the kitchenette was that they, to my surprise, actually had various types of sugars and creamers. Unfortunately I would soon find out why such variety was necessary.

NOW about the coffee. Who in the world are these people and what is it they do there? Was it the administrative office of  the living dead? Was this place a front for aliens pretending to be ordinary office workers so that they can blend in and learn our ways? The freaking coffee was SOOOO strong! Ungodly Strong! Not strong like TCIMaster’s potent espressos! Nope… This was more like concentrated sludge. Romulan Ale. Coffee colored moonshine. Surplus solvent mixed with the hint of used coffee grinds from another office! I should have stopped drinking and thrown the coffee (if you can call it that) away after taking the first sip! Why don’t I ever learn!? Perhaps because I was always taught “waste not what not”. Silly me ended up finishing the entire cup of coffee(industrial solvent).

So you say, Big Deal! its just bad tasting coffee!? No my dear friends… NO! I kid you not, I think they either accentuate their office coffee experience with the addition of speed or heroin just for an extra kick.   After drinking that one and only cup of coffee I ended up having the shakes all day, my heart was racing continually, and I’m pretty sure I could feel my fingernails and hair growing. Are you supposed to be able to see through walls?  How these people sleep after drinking their coffee is beyond me. They should post a warning sign and require “outsiders” to sign a waiver.   This is the price I pay for my frugality! One a side note, I did notice a rather prolific patch of dense hair on my chest the next morning.  Huh.. Maybe this could be used as a supplement to Rogaine!

Rating is 5 shocked faces Surprised smileSurprised smileSurprised smileSurprised smileSurprised smile 

For the rest of the day  I walked around like Corky Romano.  If anyone out there needs their fix, let me know! I can get this stuff much cheaper than your local crack, meth or crank dealer! Same effect, yet considerably cheaper!

This was me all day

Candid Coffee

29 Apr

Happy Friday!

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words… I wonder how many words a video is worth?

Without further ado… Here is my first attempt!

Attempt 1

After all that hard work… Carefully tiptoeing in, trying to act nonchalant as if I belong there, even going as far as making direct contact with employees, that oddly enough are not alarmed at my casual pace and determined course, FAIL! The Coffee Pot was empty!!!


‘Tis a lesson you should heed, try, try again. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”

Back to the original Crime Scene… Hoping someone had made a fresh pot of coffee..

In order not to be so obvious, I placed my iPhone in my shirt pocket and walked into their office with the video function recording; hence the odd camera angles.

Attempt Number Duex

Attempt 2


Great Success!

Hope everyone enjoyed my adventure!

Have a great weekend people.

Sex and Drinking

21 Feb

I recently started watching The Secret Life of the American Teenager with my daughter. I can’t honestly say that I’m enjoying it. I feel like I’m watching an after school special with funding provided jointly by Planned Parenthood and the Catholic Church. The writers worked tirelessly to provide every single angle on the subject of teen sexuality that it came off as obvious, bland and almost preachy. Not to mention that they make teen pregnancy look easy peasy. I asked my daughter who is 15 what she thought about it her reply “Well they make it look like it might be tough in the beginning but in the end it all works out fine like any teenage girl can have a baby without worrying about anything,  I get the feeling that everyone my age is out having sex already with whoever they can”
Needless to say we had a little chat about teen sex and pregnancy. She is not allowed to have any sort of sex till she is 30! And there is no room for negotiation. Thirty! Your hear me, I said Thirty young lady! (that’s for my daughter just in case she reading this) If you’ aren’t my daughter go ahead and have sex whenever you want.

What I do believe the show offers is a good drinking game.  The word “Sex” gets tossed around so much that it’s ridiculous! A typical conversation will go like this:

Girl:  Sex? Want to try sex?

Boy: Sex with me? You are offering me sex?

Girl: Yes sex, sex with you who else would I have sex with?

Boy: You think we are ready to have Sex? If you’re not ready for sex we can do other kind of sex.

You get the point. Its sex, sex, sex, sex, sex and more sex.  So from now on when watching this show keep your ears open to the word SEX. If you are an adult then you should toss back a shot of (insert your choice of liqueur here)  for every time  someone on the shows  says “SEX”. Believe me you’ll end up with alcohol poisoning after watching just one episode or maybe becoming an alcoholic after one season.

A Tiki Tiki Tribute

8 Feb

For the past two months I have been working on making a video to honor Little Tiki Tiki. It took me a long time to complete because I was only able to work on it for a couple of days at a time. I found myself crying to much as I went thru hundreds upon hundreds of the pictures we had taken of  him ……  On a good day I would go thru the photos trying to choose the best ones of him then  I would start to feel the warmth of my tears running down my face and the tightening of my chest to the point that I would have to stop working on my project and take some time off, days later I would find myself able to come back and continue working on the video having to stop once again because I just couldn’t handle the pain.

I did finally finish his video and this is the end result.
