Carriage Ride

Carriage Ride, It's me riding a horse carriage back to my house from a party. Behind me is Cinderella's humble abode. Originally uploaded by michaelongline.

Typically, riding on a horse carriage, especially in this part of the country is no big deal. However, riding it back to my house from a party is rather rare. Come to think of it, isn't it kind of like Cinderella? I live in a historic neighborhood and many people are very proud of their homes. A neighbor of mind threw a 100th Birthday party for his house. The event was rather elaborate. He even hired actors to play the previous owners, in period costumes! Of course, a big mansion with a carriage house is incomplete without a real horse carriage. Thanks to Eric for tipping the Cowboy and "Mike" 5 bucks. Pretty generous for a one-block ride.

My New iPuppy

My New iPuppy, originally uploaded by michaelongline.

I finally got myself a puppy! I've been wanting to have a dog for many years but since I live by myself and I'm at the office for at least 10 hours a day, it seems like it too cruel to leave the dog alone for such a long period of time. (That is if it can hold for that long not to potty in the house.) A coworker of my is very allergic to animal, so bringing my dog to work is out of the question, even though my boss doesn't mind us bring our dogs to work.
Then I found the perfect dog. All I need to feed him is music! It reacts to music and dances to the beat. Best of all, it doesn't pee nor poop. Isn't it fabulous! Apparently, it has moods and needs attention sometimes. And it barks occasionally. How cute. Of course, it is totally stylish because it matches my iPod and my iMac G5.
