Weekend Threesome – 10/3/21

It ain’t gonna be easy to condense The Nest’s action packed week down into three short tidbits to tell, but we’re gonna try.  After all, we don’t want to get blamed if your coffee gets cold…

Everyone will be happy to know my kidney stone issue has resolved itself.  By Tuesday night, I could feel the stick in my…. um…. part that rhymes with stick.  But after peeing twice more, there was still no evidence of a stone in the cup.  So I took a peek and guess what was literally sitting at the opening…

Ain’t it adorable?

That fucking thing is 8 millimeters long!  Look at it!

Combined with the long sliver I’d passed the week before, it gives me hope that this may have been the stone I’d been growing in my left kidney since 2016.  The last time I saw my urologist just before Christmas in 2019, it was measuring at about 8 mm and I had to think long and hard about whether I wanted to get it blasted or not since it was growing too big to pass.  I chose to wait, which looked wise two days later when I found out I’d be spending $12K to fix my plumbing.  I certainly never thought it would actually break up and come out, but unless I grew another monster in that time, it almost has to be it!

Yay! Now I can go back to gorging myself with Pepsi so I can make more…

If anyone was wondering where this week’s Shelf Critter Theatre story came from, I alluded to its inspiration in the comments… but here’s the full reveal.

I ran the Randomator Tuesday night hoping to actually do a Wednesday post for the first time in a few weeks.  Here’s what it spit out:

38, 76, 64, 41

That gave me this post by Melanie (she’s since edited it so the word count math doesn’t quite work out anymore), the words “be” and “makes,” and this image from Google:

I began thinking of a short SCT skit where Hung Lo goes looking for who stole a piece of his cake (made with dog, of course).  I had an ending in mind where Buster ends up being the culprit when he keels over from poison, but not enough filler to make it work, so I scrapped it.  I stewed on it a few more days though and voila, the episode “Secret Sauce,” where everyone exhibits some dog-like behavior that makes Hung Lo suspicious they consumed his stolen sauce.  An instant classic that gave me plenty of opportunities to try some creative things with my critters!

D’awwwwww…

And speaking of dogs….

While I was at the park adding to my squirrel archive Wednesday, I ran across this pooch who rather stood out.  I can be as bad with dog breeds as I am at identifying birds, so my dog peeps out there help me out!  What is this rose adorned puppy?

  1. WOW – that is one very fluffy rose-decorated dog but I do NOT know/recognize the breed. It could just be a dog that’s badly in need of a haircut and would be recognizable if it had a new “do” OR it’s a dog that is extraordinarily fluffy by nature. Either way, being a Cat Mom, I just don’t know. One of your puppy parent followers will know though I bet! One thing is for sure – it’s not a squirrel.

    • I’ve definitely never seen a dog like it. I wanted a better picture, but I don’t like taking pictures around other people and only snapped that one because its walker was busy with another dog behind those bleachers. At least he wasn’t the dog who pooped at the jewelry counter last night at work…

    It looks like a Pomeranian mixed with a Sharpei to me. But what’s this about Pepsi and kidney stones? I drink a lot of Pepsi—should I be worried? Glad you’re no longer stoned, lol!

  3. Congrats on no longer being stoned! As for that fluff ball…a pom mix seems to be as good a guess as any. Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s owner has a Dyson Animal super-duper vacuum at home as well.

    Congrats on getting rid of the stone, and I have to admit I have NO clue what kind of dog that is – looks like a Pomeranian cross-breed?

  5. I’d say a chow mixed with something short. The Pomeranian answer given by “My Dang Blog” fits to an extent, but that head and mouth? Chow. How big was the dog, because I’m spatially challenge and perception isn’t my strongest thing either…Shar Pei are usually hairless (as far as I know or really short haired), and really wrinkly, but that’s not a bad guess either!

    • Er. Erratum point: It’s actually “Chow Chow”. My bad. I was fixated on that hilarious SCT you hoisted aloft and that whole sauce thing made my mind go temporarily blank because I’d love some good Chinese food, and they just don’t got none up this way! 😭 Thank you too for hoisting one of my posts in the Randomator. I’ve got to stop being quite so OCD about editing AFTER I’ve punched “publish”. My bad. . 😳😲

    • I think it was a medium sized dog…. maybe tilted slightly towards the large side.

    I “knew” you were a stoner.

    Yeeks, I don’t even want to think about passing that stone.

    Sha na na na pass a stone!
