Out of the Blue

So I remedied my Diablo III neglect by getting on last night and getting to take out the Skeleton King with a couple of friends. I then got sucked into a little of that signature skinner box gameplay that had me playing until around 3:00 am. This is okay on a Sunday, as I could sleep in late, except I was awakened about three hours later by Hudson the wonder dog, who was going absolutely crazy to go outside. When I went to the backdoor, I was shocked to find puddles of urine all over the kitchen floor, so I assumed I was dealing with a bathroom emergency. When I let her out, however, it quickly became apparent that she was trying to leave the yard about as desperately as I've ever seen: To the extent that I had to jump over the railing off the deck and literally drag her back into the house by her collar. By now I knew from experience what to expect... Like an idiot, I failed to change the batteries in the smoke detector as I should have when the clocks changed, and the alarm was making that low battery chirp that Huddy finds to be the most frightening thing in the entire world. It took a good 30 minutes for her to calm down, which will hopefully finally serve as a reminder to stay on top of those batteries better in the future.

About a week ago I replaced our doorbell because every time someone rang our old one the parrot freaked out. We tried muffling the thing, but could never seem to get it loud enough for us to hear but not freak out the bird. And since I've become the go-to Mr. Fixit for the neighborhood kids bicycles the bell and bird have been getting a workout. I really wanted to find a doorbell that did mp3s, but settled for one from Lowes with 63 tunes to choose from, plus a volume control. Now the bird is happy, the wife is happy, and I am happy.
