Out of the Blue

I appreciate the thoughts on the Gunnar-man's peeing incidents (and we had a poop yesterday as a capper). I'm going to approach this from the point of view that our moving uncertainty has transferred to him a bit, and he's acting out accordingly. I will attempt to mitigate this by doubling up on the doggie's walks and see if that helps restore some of his sense of place. In the meantime I need to get some hip-waders.

I went to a movie today and it looks like they were having a Prometheus screening, as they had a check-in table set up. They allowed me to grab a couple Prometheus posters free! (Sweet!)

You know, I like dogs in general. However, I have to say your stories mostly serve to reinforce my feelings that dogs (and many other pets) simply aren't worth the effort. This despite having been raised with a family cat and dog.

Hope you are able to resolve the issue sooner rather than later.

Just came back from seeing Prometheus in 3D. Really liked it, but not quite the masterpiece I was hoping for. Really loved the 3D in this one, and visually its just absolutely gorgeous.

I liked it enough that I will be catching it again with a friend of mine during the weekend though.

OMG, Prometheus comes out June 8th? I'm pre-ordering tickets now...
I know two people at Amazon going to a screening tonight. Neither cares about it, neither knows the Alien connection, neither has seen Alien.

Are they 12?

Sounds like MrsBlue is the one who needs to spend more time with him (I believe you said he was a mamma's boy?), assuming he's acting out because of her absence. Did the issue not start until her trip, or did it happen before then?


I'd agree with that. My sisters dog is the same way when she takes off and I'm taking care of him. He gets better after a few days, but he's also a habitual licker when nervous so it's easy to spot when he's getting worried. He heads to the leather couch, starts licking it, or desk and licks it, or the floor.

Although it might be worth the extra price if you have a real IMAX screen nearby, just to get the bigger image.

I got a full size one on the other side of town...after seeing Avengers in 2D (hoping to dodge some of the crowds opening weekend) I was contemplating going back and seeing it on the imax...only to find it's now been replaced by MIB 3.

Neither will bootleg it with their phone for me, either. Jerks!

Thanks for the link too, I'm a crazy minecraft fiend even after all this time, but always wished it had a bit more on the combat/exploration side. This looks amazing; I just hope it isn't too ambitious for them.

Yeah, I need to get my imax ticket.

JFYI, unlike Dark Knight, it wasn't shot for IMAX. It'll be an up-convert. Although it might be worth the extra price if you have a real IMAX screen nearby, just to get the bigger image.

I'm off the following week, and may just need to see it twice...

Following yesterday's and today's post regarding dogs, I figured would post this link. It is a bit long, as the first half is funny. I hope you enjoy. Wink
