The Day The Dog Went Goth...

What a most excellent fun day it was. Got up really early, and spent some time with The Birdchick and Friends, while they set up for banding birds, always fun, and then headed out for Fest, in the Prius, with the Dog.

(Think clown car, it does work, and I put a bed in there for him. HIS car takes way too much gas for a weekly jaunt)

Cabal loves the Fest. He gets to go for a ride, always good, no matter where we are going, he is with me, (I am so the Alpha in the absence of Boss) and it's like a day long Walk, with other dogs everywhere. Mostly he stays with our Minnion when I am playing, a Very Nice Girl named Nicky with many piercings that he has taken a liking to.

(Don't you wonder why I mentioned her piercings? Read on, my dears...)

But sometimes, it all gets too much, and he has to BE with me....Not a great shot of me in my Fest dress, but fun of him....It's just my show, no reason to stay awake for it or anything....



Gayle came out with her son, the Mighty M, which was beyond delightful fun. Cute Police are going to be ON that kid, much fun collecting treasure, and I spoiled him rotten finding things to put in his Spider Bag. Sorry Gayle, I'll do it again in a second.

Gayle and Nicky, of the Many Piercings, got to hear my Bag Piping, they were the only two brave enough, the rest bailed en masse when I pulled them out. They'll be sorry.....

(OK, so it WAS pretty hideous, but I do have four notes now...)

So, this will sound a little strange. And I don't know quite what to make of it, but Cabal, after some three odd weekends with Nicky (of the many piercings) decided that, well, piercing ones nose was in fact the cool thing to do.

We were walking thu the shop from our Green Room ("Room" is stretching, it has neither walls nor roof, but it is our spot behind a friendly shopkeeper) and, I have NO idea how, odds might be a MILLION to one, but Cabal managed to pierce his nose.

The Shopkeeper and her Husband have art that hangs on short chains, with a hook at the end of it, small hook, not quite an inch, an S hook. One was hanging on a nail, about Dog height.

I do not know how it happened, as we walked past, but Cabal managed to, well, Pierce his nose, all the way thru, as we walked past! He yelped, I saw it, Jeff the husband tried to get it out, the S hook with 6 inches of chain hanging from his nose, Cabal freaked..Jeff said, I hold, you get it out.

UH.....

Well, one does what one has to.

Got blood all over my nice white chemise, but it came straight out. (the hook, it remains to be seen if the blood does) I was shaking and thinking "Don't throw up, don't throw up"

HOW he managed that I truly do not know. It seems fine now, tho I think a call to the vet is in order in the morning. A lesson on the dangers of trying to fit in.

Came home to what was left of a Mouse. Not much. I think I am glad Mim is so on the job. I think.

I am ready for no more adventures today, tho all in all...

It was pretty fun.

Love and Piercings,
Lorraine

I didn't know Cabal was so punk rock! Rebellious teen?

Glad it was a good day besides the bloody hook!

Ben's in bed, i'm sure i've got some show tivo'd that i'm supposed to watch so i'll go do that!

 
At 8:47 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

Oh, BTW, had a dream last night that we housesat for your boss. Everything under the sun went wrong (toilet backed up, etc) *but* we had all the great BBC shows to watch so all was OK! Oh, and in my dream his place was a crappy little, trashed, one bedroom apartment...dreams are weird.

 
At 8:51 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

It's funny you should both mention Tivo, I so wanted to watch True Blood to see if it rocks or sucks, as it were, so when I dropped the Pierced Dog off, I did program Boss's Tivo to record. Looking forward to seeing it tomorrow night...

My home cable has no HBO....

Wow! That is quite the adventure! Sharp things should not be so easily accessible I think.

Glad it was a good day beyond that. Yeah, I would think a call to the vet would be in order tomorrow -- just to be safe.

Ginger Snap has killed a couple of mice over the years but they always seem whole when I find them -- just dead but no blood. Not sure how she does that.

Good night!

Well...if Cabal's nose hasn't shown any signs of infection by now, it seems to me that it should be okay. I'm with you about calling the vet in the morning, though.

So. Mim finally got to eat her catch. The first mouse that Tangwyn caught, he left in the hallway, scalped, for my husband to almost step on in the wee hours of the morning; well before sunrise, even. That was in our previous house. I was pregnant when he caught and killed the second mouse, and was bringing it to us, where we were in bed. He didn't make it to the bed, and my husband got the mouse from him and disposed of it. He hasn't caught any more since then, and that was seven years ago.

As far as your nice, formerly white, chemise goes, try soaking it in cold water and OxyClean. I can't promise that it will get the blood stain out, and it may take more than one soak, but it's worth a try. Good luck!

 
At 9:33 PM , Blogger ariandalen said...

I'm sure that all the soup is good; however, the temperatures are ranging from the mid 60s to the mid 90s still. I really prefer cooler temperatures for eating soup. Maybe in a month or two. :)

 
At 10:29 PM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Awwww! Poor Cabal! Was he hurt much?
Cold water with loads of coarse salt should do away with the blood on your shirt. And if it does not, use the shirt for Halloween (add some more blood - fake one will do).

That picture of you reminds me of that on the live CD of Folk Underground.

Four notes? You are not too far from playing Ravel's Bolero then.

For the summer months, there are cold soup to be eaten chilled.

 
At 11:24 PM , OpenID kali-licious said...

Yeeouch! Poor puppy..my nose hurts just thinking about it. Good idea to call the vet just in case.
He looks so perfectly relaxed in that picture too.

Four notes? Awesome. You are no longer just a siren;). lol

Mim the Mighty Huntress.:) At least she ate most of it..we had an outdoor cat when I was growing up that used to just leave them like presents on the front deck. Bleah..just what you wanna see stepping out the door.

 
At 11:32 PM , Blogger pantagruel said...

Dude! Cabal, I TOLD you to go to a real shop for your piercing, but did you listen? Noooo... just couldn't wait, could you?

Sigh. That definitely qualifies as an Adventure.

Try using Betadine [povodone/iodine] on his nose (I'd also recommend sea salt and warm water soaks, but I don't see those going over well, somehow).

Hi Lorraine
long time lurker, I've been building up the courage to post. Reading what 'fun' you've been havin with your music, the cats, the bees Cabal and everyone else always makes me smile.

Poor Cabal piercing his nose - thank goodness it wasn't his eye though. My brother's boxer lost her eye in a similar sort of way.

are you going to persuade The Boss to put a ring in Cabal's nose?

 
At 4:09 AM , Blogger Phiala said...

How do they get into those sorts of things?? Grendel's done all kinds of odd injuries to himself. I think dogs must have an entirely different concept of "body" than people do.

I'm glad you were able to deal so well with it. I hope you get the stains out of the chemise, and that he didn't bleed all over the car.

And see, Mim knew you were having a bad day and needed a nice cheering present!

 
At 4:34 AM , Blogger ivenotime said...

Good morning all - what a cute pic of you and cabal (prepiercing) Sounds like he was mighty jealous of Nicky, and decided to go for it. Glad you were able to get it out, I do think he should start with ear piercings first, rings in the nose remind me of cattle :). A few studs up the ear could be handsome, and such a fun surprise for your boss, haha. sounds like a fun day all in all.

 
At 4:47 AM , Blogger Maureen said...

I've survived many Crazy Dog Tricks over time, but have never had a dog pierce his own nose. Maybe terriers are too close to the ground? I should be grateful for that.

Robin did a "hey! watch!" thing and sprained his shoulder last week. Nothing nearly as rock star as piercing his nose; gotta hand it to Cabal for originality.

I second the rec on OxyClean. We've got it here and it gets out all kinds of stuff, though some do take more than one soak.

 
At 7:29 AM , Blogger Jess said...

I'm a Spray-n-Wash (with Resolve Powerâ„¢!!) gal, myself. That stuff works pretty well.

Ouch! 8[ Well, that's made me come over all psychosomatic! I'm sitting here rubbing my nose just thinking about it. Ow ow ow ow ow. I hope Cabal's better this morning-- did you get him to the vet? Poor pupster!

So, leek and potato soup! (It never hurts to be prepared, ariandalen. ;) )

*3 or 4 biggish leeks, trimmed, sliced into thick rings
*2 tbsp. butter
*about 2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
*parmesan rinds
*a quart or so of light chicken broth, or water
*some herbs (Nigel Slater says a handful of fresh parsley, but I used a tablespoon of herbs-de-Provence instead)
*salt and pepper
*grated parmesan

Melt the butter in your soup pot over a low to medium heat. Rinse the sliced leeks thoroughly and throw them in; cover, turn the heat down to low and cook for twenty minutes or so, till they're very soft. Add the potatoes and let them cook with the leeks for about five minutes, then add the parmesan rinds, chicken broth, and any dry herbs you're using (if you're using something like fresh parsley instead, stir it in at the end, just before it goes into the blender). Season with salt and pepper, partially cover, and simmer for 40 minutes.

Fish out what's left of the parmesan rinds and puree in batches in the blender; return the soup to the pot and bring it back to a simmer till it's warmed through. Serve with grated parmesan, or, if you want, slice up a little chorizo, brown it while the soup's heating, and drop some on top of each serving. of course, I did both, because I'm like that. Arteries? What arteries?

Hope everyone's having a good morning!

Great! Now I am hungry and will have a growly stomach (and I am in a boring meeting too - that doesn't help).

 
At 7:35 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Thanks for the tips on the blood. I have a foolproof way tho, I am taking it to MerryHousekeeper who Know Such Things...It will be white again. Oh yes. It will.

He looks more than relaxed there, looks like he is SLEEPING thu my show!

Yes, I told him if he had wanted piercings, he should have told me! We could have talked about it.(For thoe of you who think asking Boss if he can get a few is a good idea, go away!) Hee-hee...

Welcome Dragonlady! Well done on the de-lurking! See how easy it was??Looking forward to more from you!

Yes, dogs. HOW do they do it????

Mims all heart!

 
At 7:37 AM , Blogger gaypet said...

Well I manged to get M out of his muddy clothes and into the bed. He didn't wake up. He had so much fun! So did I. He was a little disappointed that he couldn't take all of his treasures to school.

I missed the piercing event. I did see the hook though and I still can't imagine how he managed it!

The pipes, the pipes! I am so impressed with your progress in such a short amount of time. Good show!

Now I am off to write a paper about my favorite children's book. I wish I were off to take a NAP! :)

 
At 7:40 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I second the hungary thing!

Morning Nathilie, sorry about the boring meeting, at least you can look interested and hang here.

Havn't got into work yet. Just leaving. I sleep here with Bengals, and just leave late, and Merry Housekeeper comes in easly for Cabal. Not sure why you needed to know that.

Oh, vet right. I will look at the poor pirced nose and call shortly.

Nathilie, I can off you some very interesting French conversastion later...

How are you? I am well. What is your name..

AND OH! No, I didn't use ALL my French, forgot about that one, hee-hee

 
At 7:41 AM , Blogger pantagruel said...

That does it, I'm going to Whole Foods up the street today to buy potatoes and leeks.

As I drink my morning coffee at the office (I get to work at the ungodly hour of 7 am, making me get up at 4:45 every day), and run down my Stuff to Do list, I realize I actually have space and time to tackle all the Free Stuff now. So Quiche, when you get a chance today, want to email me about the site?

I think I shall send you numbers next...

Morning Gayle! You guys can come back anytime, so fun!!!!!

I am way too tired, I'd forgotten what Mondays are like after fest...Next weekend will be worse, as we have nighttime gigs too. Which was why I stopped doing this....

SO, what is your forite children's book, Gayle?

 
At 7:50 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

You guys are so fast that I look like I am commenting on myself! While ignoring half of you!

Val, I will try, but I am really a ZOmbie. I do want to get my site up and running as soon as possible tho..

Yes, numbers Nathilie!

aletamay :: Dare I say.... VAMPIRE CAT!

I have been trying for some time now to get this new product to market, Blood-B-Gone. It actually spun off from a side-effect of something else I was developing. The consumer product safety testing has been hell. Who care if it turns whatever you spray it on into a vampiric symbiote, I say!!

 
At 8:43 AM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

So, i watched True Blood last night. I really liked it! Of course I'm a sucker (pun intended) for sexy vampire tales but I don't think I'm alone in that!

 
At 8:45 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

That's the spirit Dan Guy!!!!! Don't back down! We need this, and what the heck, I say, what's a few more Vampiric Symboites running around anyway?

Speaking of which, did anyone catch True Blood last night? I tivo'd but havn't watched it...

Off to the vet. With Doofas.

 
At 8:46 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Ok. Not only are you guys sneaking in and posting before I can get mine up, but you are apparently answering my questions before I post them!

Snicker....

 
At 8:46 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Doofus really deserved his nickname this time...

So many lurkers coming out of hiding...I felt the need to join the crowd. I won't say how long I've been quietly reading your blog, I'll seem slightly less stalkeryish that way.

I have not seen True Blood, I'm going to have to wait until I can get it through Netflix. I've heard from other people who have seen it though. The general consensus seems to be too much sex, less humor, too dark and not enough like the book. Sounds good to me! The comments I heard came from people who are very opposed to Changes from the books the show is based on.

Poor puppy, he just wanted to be the coolest doggy among his canine fiends. Now he has to suffer with no nose bling, and the indignity of having to take medicine.

*stalks, sneaks, posts* ;)

Dan, you've got some red on you. Braaains...

Poor pup! We finished a course of anitbiotics on the Ally-cat last Thursday-- by then she was trying to claw my head off every time I picked her up. I had to resort to donning my +1 Padded Armor beforehand (read: fluffy bathrobe). I hope Doofus takes his meds with more dignity.

 
At 10:43 AM , Blogger scored4life said...

Poor Cabal. Too bad there wasn't a skull topped nose stud ready for placement. ;) I'm glad he is going to be okay and bravo for doing what needed to be done!

Being a huge fan of Alan Ball (I own the entire 6FU series) I am really looking forward to seeing True Blood. Too much sex? Is that even possible? As long as he develops his characters like he usually does, it should be fantastic.

Now that I have my new kitchen, I'm going to have to try this soup thing so keep the recipes coming! I really enjoy cooking and it feels so good to have somewhere to be able to do that again.

Welcome to the delurkers Dragonsally and Amy. It's always good to see some new blood.

Val, I've got like a whole bottle of 12y Balvenie here and I need some help with it.

-Dr. Score

 
At 11:04 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

It's more of a precaution, so he doesn't GET a big nasty infection.

Hi Amy, and welcome! I promise I won't think you a stalker just because you've been lurking. I pretty shy too.

(heck, it's MY blog, and I never know what to say half the time!)

I love hearing from those of you out there who have been reading tho, new friends!

No nose bling! The man who held him for me said afterwards "Now, you will want to keep the ring in for 7-10 days, so it doesn't close up..."

I did think for a half a second, HEY, we could leave this in! Then my brain came back.

Great welcome for the de-lurkers, Paul! "Always good to see new blood" and then right back to Vampire stories, hee-hee....Yes, come lurkers, we need neeeeww blooooodddd.....

Can't help you with the Whiskey, Val will have to, but once I get a few of these recoded, you have to come out and watch them. And I can't wait to see your new place.

Like say, after fest next Saturday, before our gig that night, perhaps? I will be especially interested in seeing you new SHOWER!

 
At 11:35 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Mmm... I wouldn't mind a sip of that Balvenie (even if still a little juvenile).

 
At 11:49 AM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Yes. All us fiends need new blood, too! ;)
And canine blood is just...unacceptable.

Mwahahaha

Oh.
Um. ::blinking:: Hi, all those of you who've decided to come out of hiding! :)

psst...Ms. Fabulous...are my horns showing? This could be so embarrassing.


Yeah. I can just see you asking Boss if Cabal can have a piercing.

Ms. Fabulous: Hey, Boss! Cabal's really been digging Nicky's piercings. What say we get him one of his own?

Boss: (looking over top of his glasses)...No.

Boss: Where am I supposed to be tomorrow?

Q: "I'm writing an essay for tonight from the point of view of a carrot."

Oh, FODS! She's writing Bunnicula fanfic!!!

 
At 12:11 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hee-hee! Hardly, Phiala.

I do have a carrot tho that rivals the Horned Tomato....

 
At 12:24 PM , Blogger ariandalen said...

Okay, Phiala. You made me snort out loud. ;) At least I didn't wake up my youngest and have to explain.

I remember the horned tomato. Would you believe that we grew one a year later. Though I will note that it was only about an inch, inch and a half, in diameter. My husband even took a picture of it. Of course, I have no idea where said picture is.

So...a really twisted carrot? Is it a typical orange carrot, or is it a maroon one from Texas A&M? I guess I'll have to wait to find out. ;)

 
At 12:27 PM , Blogger pantagruel said...

Paul, email me, and we will talk about single-malt!

A carrot that rivals the devil tomato? It's probably not what I'm thinking, as my mind's rather one-track.

 
At 12:38 PM , Blogger Jess said...

That must mean it's not what I'm thinking, either.

Bunnicula! That was one of my all-time favourite books as a kid, mainly for the cat/dog dynamic. Cats and dogs probably go sleuthing together all the time. We just never hear about it.

Hallo, delurkers! :) *waves*

 
At 12:58 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I can assure you, you cannot imagine this carrot. I grew it myself. At Night. In the Garden.

Just for you....

At 1:10 PM , Blogger ivenotime said...

pictures of said carrot? it sounds so fiendishly interesting, specially grown at night...glad cabal is ok! and the soup recipe will be duly printed out - wish i had time tonight to cook, but only get a few hours off between classes. it would be perfect for tonight - rainy and chilly. Hi!!! to all the delurkers, yes come join us, we are fun fiends we are. i am a tired fiend and have corrected six misspellings (seven now) trying to type this bit (i think i inherited last nights' mushy brain) (eight).

At 3:16 PM , Blogger Siri said...

We were frantically proofing an instruction note today - my coworker wrote "The author of the memo mispelled my name."

After sending her email, she asked how to spell misspell. That word is just not fair.....

What in Fod's name is a parmesan rind?

 
At 3:16 PM , Blogger gaypet said...

Well I didn't get my paper written. My best friend had the-mother-if-all-anxiety-attacks and I spent the day in the hospital with him. Oy! He's OK tho. I think.

Anyway, I have too many favorite children's books. The one that I chose is "The Story of Ferdinand" by Leaf/Lawson. It is such a great story! And the images bring back some fond memories for me. We'll see if I get the paper done! :)

I saw the last 20 min of "True Blood" and I liked it. I think that I will need to spend some more time with the characters to say that I am hooked. But it seems good so far.

Off to make pizza dough and then, guess what, pizza with M. I hide all kinds of veg pureed in the sauce. Sneaky!

 
At 4:13 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hi Siri, I think it is what is around the cheese, when the cheese is whole. Not common in the US I don't believe...

That word sure ain't fair!

Is that the story where the Bull likes flowers, Gayle? I am going to finish up r-mails then eat dinner and watch True Blood. The reviews are really all over the board...

 
At 4:30 PM , Blogger gaypet said...

It is! You know it? I think it is one of the many stories that helped to form my world view. I have a hard time reading it to my son cause I get all choked up.

We made pizza dough and then pizza but M was more interested in a bath to get the flour off of him than eating. I may watch True Blood tonight as well. We'll see if M sleeps soon. :)

Bread

If anyone else out there loves carbs as much as I do you need this site. Well, only if you also love to bake but it seems many of you do.

 
At 5:14 PM , Blogger Jess said...

Siri - parmesan rinds are those sort of hard, dry ends on a hunk of parmesan that aren't much good for eating-- Lorraine's right, it's the outside part of the cheese. Whole Foods (if you've got a Whole Foods near you) has started packaging them up separately, for ridiculous money; you can also just ask the guy behind the cheese counter at the supermarket if they've got any you can have. Failing that, you can always just throw in whatever parmesan you've got-- a tablespoon or two of grated stuff, or whatever. I actually used a dried-up hunk of parmesan I had in the cheese drawer; at the end I just fished out the bits that hadn't melted all the way.

Mmm, sneaky veg on carbs! I like the look of that site-- never been fond of baking bread, but this may convert me.

I bet the carrot looks like a horned tomato. Or a gnome.

 
At 6:07 PM , Blogger gaypet said...

Ugh. Any other dog people out there who have a fenced yard (and yet live in the middle of nowhere) who have been sitting quietly doing something and suddenly realized that there is a noxious smell coming from one of the dogs. My Zelda has rolled in something horrible! And is sitting by me. Oh F'ing FOD! There is some dead fetid thing in my yard and my dog has rolled in it. Why do they do this. She is gonna have a bath AND will not be sleeping in the bed.

 
At 6:09 PM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Because they are dogs, that's why. Cabal threw up his meant this morning, left it in the yard and then went back and ate it later.

Just watched True Blood, really want to see where they are going to go with it. Very dark, lots of sex. I thought it was really well written and done.

 
At 6:17 PM , Blogger Chantrelle said...

Glad you liked True Blood so that we can keep talking about it! I haven't read the books so i had zero expectations. The vampire is totally hot so i'm hooked already ;)

I was a dog person growing up, then i got a cat (well, roommate brought a cat home so the cat really got me), Lestat, I had him until he vanished last year (just like a vampire to "die" that way huh?). I still LOVE dogs but our yard is too small and i'm not an indoor-animal person anymore.

It's leftover chinese and pizza night...i love to cook (obviously) but non-cooking nights really are quite loverly.

Gaypet, a favorite of both of our dogs in the backyard are dead birds - especially nestlings in spring. Urgh - and they always make sure the yummy scent is in your favorite petting spot, little devils.
You haven't lived though, until your dog has done a shoulder roll in ripe, festering snake on a walk out.
Trying to clean goblets of hot fat off a dog and out of a collar before getting in the car is a test of your ability not to throw up.
Thank god for disposable gloves in first aid kits and wet wipes in the glove box.

My parents keep a bottle of Listerine in the car for when the dogs roll in something...cleans them up enough so that you can stand being in the car with them until they get a bath!

First aid for smelly dogs:

Mix Listerine (the old fashioned amber kind) and water in a spray bottle. One part Listerine and 3 parts water. Use paper towels to get as much of the yucky stuff off as you can. Spray the solution on the area to saturate hair, then rub off excess with old towel. It is antiseptic and has a nice clean smell. It surely makes the drive home much more pleasant.
