"Word Verification Challenge"

I have decided that this ...."thing" is not my friend. I don't feel good today, so I am going to take this opportunity to complain about the "Word Verification" section of our Bloggie Kingdom. Although, I do appreciate it's importance for us all, I find that the fonts are crazy...down right alien sometimes and they make me really anxious. When my eyes travel from letter to box to keys...I get lost in the transition and usually have to 're-do' the process. Now, there have been many times when I know I have done it right, no doubts on this one...and WV kicks me out and makes me do another round of barely recognizable letters. So, for the record....I dislike WV, he is not my friend, but I will tolerate his antics out of his importance to bloggie order.

Now, let me show you someone who is my friend.....this is Ellie, my mini chihuahua.

She stays by my side, follows me around the house and is my faithful companion on days like today when I am couch bound with flaring lupus symptoms. I love her so much. I have never loved a dog like this ever. She reads my mind and is so intune with my needs. She even avoids walking on my legs when I'm in pain. She just gently curls up next to my tummy and lovingly adores my sickly self. I don't know what I'd do without her. To those who know me in person, I have an Ellie voice that I use when I'm talking to her or translating what she is thinking.....

"Hi, I'm Eddie and my mommy gives me treats and kisses and throws my babies and I go for walks to the mail box and I love to give uncontrollable kisses, I love my sissy."

Sissy is my 22 year old daughter that is coming home today. Ellie will bark with excitement when she arrives. Have a wonderful weekend all and sorry, Ellie is not for sale.

Hugs and kisses to you all.....now I leave you to go and gaze upon my sickly self into the mirror, this will be fun today ;(

she is a cutie! i love those big eyes and bit ears.

i'm so with ya on the word verification thing. sometimes i hit the publish button without typing it in just so i'll get a new round...one that i'll hopefully be able to figure out. i understand the random letters but what's the purpose of the crazy fonts???

There is NO PURPOSE!

Someone "out there" is laughing their head off saying, "Dude, they'll never figure this one out! har har!"

Ellie!! Where's your chewy??? Go get your chewy!

Dar, you forgot to say that only you, me and Angela have really mastered the Ellie voice. Hee hee.

You're so funny. I was hating the "word verification" too until Susannah said that on a comment she left me about me getting pregnant, that the word "mum" was in the middle!! LOL. Now, I don't mind it so much! ;)

Imagine me snugglingupagainstyou on the other side of you and Ellie.

Loving you,
lil sis boho

ohhh I want to kiss her and hug her and call her my own (Ellie that is) I have my own baby like that too...her name is Penny wenny cocoa puffs...when I am doing the funny talk to your dog voice thing.

I am sorry you are couch bound today, but you will have your baby girl coming to keep you company and take good care of you.

Oh, and FYI, my baby will probably be emailing your baby as soon as he gets back from his overnight camping trip. (thanks to auntie denise)

Hugs and kisses your way today! Have a great weekend!

My word verification suxdt! Yuk I hate them.

I'm sorry you don't feel well... But isn't it amazing how animals just know us so well sometimes? My female cat, Minuit, never ever sleeps with me. But when I was having a rough time due to a breakup, I woke up one morning with her on my belly, and another time she was right next to my head! I also don't know what I'd do without my kitties.
