1. I got up to pee at around 4:30 this morning; Lily took that to mean that it was time to wake up and play and most especially be in the bedroom. So when I closed the door and she was still outside, she wasn't very happy and started to whine and cry. We've read countless times that you can't give in to the dog when they're whining, because it reinforces that whining can get them whatever they want. We laid in bed while she scratched at the door and whined and cried and assumed that she would give up after a while. She did not. She did not stop until our alarm clocks went off, at which point she went to sleep. I am very tired and cranky now, as a result.

2. Why didn't anybody tell me that the new Belle & Sebastian kicks ass? Oh, wait, a bunch of you actually did. OK, then, why didn't I listen? I used to love them but I kinda hated the album directly following "...Arab Strap", so I haven't been following them for a few years. And another thing - since when did B&S grow some balls? "Sukie in the Graveyard" has a fucking swagger that I had no idea they possessed. Word on the street is that B&S is touring with New Pornographers and that constitutes a must-see, no questions asked.

More later, if my brain can handle it.
