Make the chopstork happen

June 3rd, 2009 by some dude

The time is here. 5 years in the making … er, 5 years in the dreaming and we haven’t made the chopstork yet (the eating thing, not this website). It’s time to mobilize. The chopstork NEEDS VOTES.

If it wins, they’ll actually make the thing!!! Get on it! Create a Quirky account and vote for the Chopstork. Only have 2 days!


Bay to Breakers 2009 - So, Like What’s the Plan?

May 12th, 2009 by Luke

Um, that’s a good question. Let’s see….

The meeting place:

We will meet at the corner of 3rd St. and Howard St. at 8:15 am Sunday to join the “race”. Note this is not the official starting area. Make sure you have a couple cell phone numbers to find people in case you’re late or things don’t go as planned. If you need my number, email me.

Alternatively, feel free to come up the night before and spend the night, or come to our place early Sunday and take the MUNI light rail to the race with us. We will leave our place no later than 7:45am to catch a train from the Van Ness Station to the Montgomery Station. See Googe Transit for details and other travel options.

Getting stuff together:

We’ll be fixing up the carts Friday around 2ish and Saturday around noonish at Courtney’s Place in Noe Valley. Maybe we’ll put some food together (aka order take out from Eric’s) Saturday if you wanna come over. Oh, and we’ll need to test and mix up batches of “punch”. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you plan on coming over to help out.

The Theme:

If you haven’t heard yet, our theme this year is Under the Sea.  Also, remeber to bring beer and snacks. Do not bring glass bottles or coolers (won’t fit in the cart).  Also, please respect the new B2B guidelines so we can do this all again next year. Register, don’t pee on strangers property or strangers, and pick up after your self.  Read more about the new guidlines here.


Invite your friends!

All your attention are belong to Facebook

March 16th, 2009 by some dude

This blog suffers due to the popularity of Facebook as our friends’ online destination. It’s so much easier to post 160 characters of nonsense than to write a whole paragraph too.

In the spirit of self made music

Please allow me to introduce the Automachine. This little slice of genius will soon be coming to a Yellow House party near you, assuming I am allowed anywhere near the computer. In its purest form, this essentially allows an iPhone-endowed person to rock the party ’til the breaka’ breaka’ dawn from their palm.

The Dule diaries, year 1

December 20th, 2008 by some dude

Dule playing-6653

March 1

Dule is a bitch. No really, I am. 10:57pm

I started learning to fetch. I can put the ball in A.J.’s hand now.

April 1

More fetch
I did more fetching. This time outside! But then I got distracted by the ground and quit. Dirt is fascinating.

April 2

Dule is I need to pee. I need to pee. I need to pee. I need to pee.

Dule is aaaahhhh, sweet relief.

Dule is destroying the bone. Destroy!

sit? down?
Still a little confused what “down” is. Thought I knew it last week.

April 3

Dule is hyper.


April 4

humpy the dog
Humpy wants me

Dule is chewing.

April 5

Dule is tired from playing with Afton.

April 8

Dule is panicking because the treat is stuck in the Orbo.

April 9

Wow. I’ve figured out that holding the orbo by the small end and shaking = food appears on the floor. No more random batting-around.

Dule is chewing.

oh poop
I think I pooped my crate today. Then I think I ate it. Cuz when Laura came home, it smelled like poop, but the poop was gone.

Dule is scheming when I can next pee in inappropriate places.

April 10

Dule almost scratched A.J.’s eyeball out. That woke him up.

April 12

Dule pooped upstairs … in bed.

Dule had a lovely time wandering around downtown all morning and meeting lots of strangers…in bed.

April 13

Dule decapitated and disemboweled her cat…in bed.

Dule dismembered her moose and is missing a tooth (unrelated) in bed.

April 14

LED Dog Tail Communicator probably just says: ‘Baaaaacon! Bacon bacon bacon!’

April 15

Dule has been told her next trick is to point at her own droppings in the yard for easy pick up.

April 19

I like dog food. It is good.

April 20

Stringy (by A.J.)
Once upon a time there was a dog. A dog named Dule.

Dule made a doodie. But the doodie stuck to her booty. She must have eaten some hair. Dule did not notice the doodie stuck on her booty.

Her owner tried to tell her. Dule was busy digging a hole.

Then Dule thought something smelled funny. She looked at her butt, where smelly things usually appear. There was a doodie! This scared Dule!

She ran and ran and ran around the yard. But this doodie was chasing her. She could not get away. She dragged her rear on the grass. But this doodie was stalking her. It would not go away. Her owner said, “I’m not wiping your butt; you better figure it out.” She ran and ran some more.

And finally it let go. And Dule was happy.

April 21

Dule is shedding.

Circles. Running away from the rake.

Dule has hiccups again.

April 27

Dule lost a tooth!

April 28

Dule is pooped from racing A.J. up and down the grassy knoll.

Paws and nose suddenly huge. I can see over the counter tops now. Lots of things to steal up there.

Dule thinks Bitter Yuck is kinda sorta tasty.

May 3

Dule is wiped out from a walk downtown.

May 6

Dule ate $13 in Metro fare.

May 7

Dule discovered car sickness today … on Laura.

I heart hearts
I went to a place the humans call Richmond where someone put cold stuff on my chest and made pretty movies on a computer. They said my heart murmur is really unlikely to be a problem. Good, I won’t die. On the way there I vommed all over Laura’s lap. Carsickness! I need to chew my food better.

May 9

Dule smells really bad.

Dule is playing at Minnie’s.

May 10

Dule is hunting ants.

May 11

Dule is bitey again.

May 13

Dule is chewing on A.J.’s ripped jeans.

Played and fetched and kissed and frolicked with Afton and another big black dog last night, and Barkley tonight. I like dogs. Barkley is a lazy fetcher just like me.

May 14

I like cauliflower

May 15

Dule was the biggest dog in her puppy class, but did not hurt anyone.

May 16

Puppy class
I had puppy class today. I was the biggest one. The leash wouldn’t let me go cuz I was too crazy. It turns out that I am very good playing with puppies. Except maybe the one puppy (Maggie?) that I chased around in circles whenever I could. Eh, she liked it.

I forgot how small and cute puppies are. I used to be that cute. It’s ok, I’m still cute according to the humans.

I’m not the loudest! Black lab was the loudest. I’m the second loudest. I am the most don’t-want-to-sit-still. Too much to play with!

Man in the oven
Someone is living inside the oven. I look at him and he looks back. He is not always there. When he is there he is always eating. When he speaks, his voice comes from the wrong direction. He sounds eerily similar to the human who feeds me.

May 19

Dule is better now and thanks Vicky, John, and Garbee for taking care of her.

May 20

I got sick this weekend after A.J. left me. It was either the pepperonis he fed me, or the dog poop I fed myself. I had diarrhea cha cha cha, and then vommed on Saturday. In my crate. Vicky got to clean it up. She is so nice. Then Garbee and Vicky took me outside and hosed me off. I did not like the hose. I had to eat chicken and rice for a day. Then I got better. My toys are outside still because they are infected with my grossness.

May 25

Dule is tired.

Old Rag
Climbed lots of rocks with Afton and Remmie. I am tired.

May 26

Dule wants to sleep all day.

Dule is a new fan of soup bones.

Fighting the sticky roller

May 27

Dule likes beer.

Dule has been banned from rawhides, but is a huge fan of the bully stick … which is made from bull penis!

May 29

Dule has to take medicine for a urinary tract infection.

Urinary tract infection
I have a urinary tract infection. The vet could tell because I’ve been licking my vulva. … what’s a vulva? A.J. followed me with a cup to catch my pee. That weirded me out. I have to take medicine now. I am expensive!!!

May 31

Dule is the reason nature invented velcro.

Gonna get fixed
It’s almost time to get fixed. Instead of an open surgery, I would like a laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy. Does anyone do those around here? I wonder if A.J. and Laura will pay for that.

izzi blue
I have hairs in front of my eyeballs too.

June 4

Dule is pooped from 2 days of doggy day care and thanks her friends for taking care of her again.

June 7

Dule is slowly turning gold.

June 11

Dule is STILL infected where she pees. And it’s gonna cost more money to fix it.

The birds and the squirrels
The creatures they call “bird” and “squirrel” want to play with me. They ask to be chased. I never noticed them before.

June 12

I like water.

June 15

Dule is: Chew ball. Drop ball under desk. Dig for ball. Human retrieves ball. Repeat. …Dig for ball. Turn off power strip. No more ball.

June 22

Dule is probably done with the UTI, but now has an eye infection. She likes to keep the humans poor.

June 23

Dule is off to the vet. Again.

Dule …who knew dogs can get conjunctivitis.

July 2

Dule does not like her new car harness.

Dule is looking forward to discovering the ocean this weekend.

July 3

Dule got her tongue bitten and bled all over the sidewalk.

Hole in my tongue
My walk was exciting today. A lot of people at the amphitheater. I ignored A.J. calling me back because they all wanted to play. Some birds swooped down and opened their wings at me. They must have wanted to play too.

On our way back a big golden retriever was sitting at the place they call Mellow. He sniffed my nose. I sniffed his nose. Then he got mad and snapped. He scared me, I jumped. Then A.J. looked at me and said I was bleeding, whatever that means. He said I looked like a vampire. The sidewalk was covered in red stuff. We made quite the spectacle. A vet I’ve met before looked at me too. I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I’m hungry. When I drink, my water turns pink!

My tongue changed shapes some time today too. Feels weird. Whatever. I wanna go swimming.

July 4

Dule now has a deformed tongue.

July 6

Dule wants to stay at the eastern shore and did not realize dogs can’t walk on water.

Dule misses boozing it up at the Shore. It was delmarvalous.

Dule went to the groomer today. The groomer was bad and cut her hair too short. Dule is sad.

halloween and hairs
I have been waiting for Halloween for at LEAST half my life. I was going to be a punk rocker with my crazy hair spiked into a mohawk. Even go all the way down my back and be a punk stegosaurus.

Now I cannot.

Groomer cut the hairs off my head! She was only supposed to cut out my matted hairs. Zero of those were on my head. Stupid groomer.

Maybe I still have enough hair on the sides of my head to be Prodigy. I’M THE FIYAH STARTAH!

Operation Birthday Bash

November 10th, 2008 by some dude

Laura finished day 1 of her comps today, so we were slumming it at Red Robin for dinner. 3 tables had birthdays in the time we were there, as evidenced by the gathering of the entire wait staff clapping and singing… 3 times.

Not nearly enough.

Enter Operation Birthday Bash. We shall make a field trip to Red Robin. We shall make a staggered entry and sit as separate couples and groups. We shall recruit acquaintances/co-workers/professors and their children so we’re not a conspicuous influx of 20-somethings all eating Red Robin on the same night.

And, of course, there will be a birthday at every table. And the wait staff will sing and clap. Over and over. It will be the happiest birthdayest night in the history of Red Robin.

Prop 8 ads

November 3rd, 2008 by some dude

It’s funny how hypocritical some bloggers and commenters are about these misplaced Yes on Prop 8 ads that appeared today all over the place. That example is not one of the hypocritical ones. If they don’t want the ads on their site, of course that’s cool.

It’s the ones that are all pissy about Google selling those ads at all that are funny. So Google should refuse to show things that you disagree with because you have personally deemed the other side “evil”? Yeah right.
