Funny Story: Pet Door

My dog Zelda has always been an inside dog, even when we let her outside she rushes back in when she's bored. But obviously she would need to go outside every-now and then. Typically we'd always open up the door to the back porch to let her out. She was not a dog that liked to wait, so she noticed when the old door could be pushed open with some force. So she'd run up to it and push it as hard she could with her paws, and run inside. We were able to deter her from doing it by pulling a kitchen drawer to block the door. A week or two later, she stopped trying to open the door herself.

Alice in Wonderland (2010 Film) Review

 Alice in Wonderland is something I've been debating on watching for many years. I heard of people who loved the film, and then I heard people say they really hated it. Tim Burton is behind this version of Alice in Wonderland and I admit, his overuse of gothic tones (and constant work with Johnny Depp) for his characters can be rather annoying.

Fact of the Day: Alice in China

Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books weren't allowed in a part of China because one of the leaders there thought that talking animals were an insult to humans.

Question: Are You a Morning Person or a Night Owl?

I'm more of a night owl because I can stay up late with no problem. Getting up in the morning is much tougher for me. Especially after a rough day, I can sleep for at least ten hours without a reason to get up.
