Google Street View Freaks Me Out

Google and Twitter are starting to freak me out a wee bit.

After spending far too long perusing our neighbourhood on the newly released Google Street View in our area, I discovered The Eldest and The Boyfriend pictured hanging out at the local pizza place. And then walking up our street.

Kind of creepy.

And after posting a silly little comment on Twitter about a radio station stating some tummy tuck jeans were literally flying out the doors, I had two plastic surgeons from Georgia and the United Kingdom start following me on Twitter.

I admit to being a tad paranoid. I also admit to feeling slight relief that there is no bear scat pictured on our front lawn. A lot of dandelions, but no bear scat.

And for some reason, all this transparency is making me feel like I need to remind everyone out there in those there internets that a large black dog lives in our house.

This is where she sleeps 85% of her life.

That would be our front door.

The other 15% of the time she spends sharpening her teeth and practicing her ninja moves in front of the mirror. As you can tell by the picture, she is a svelte fighting machine.

Don't be fooled by the drool.

This post cracked me up. :)

a) I am also paranoid (but google street map, for my house, is over a year old. Whew!)

b) I'd take a picture of bear scat (if there were any unidentified (and uneaten (by the dog)) scat and send it to my sister (but maybe not post it on the internet)

c) your dog is darling. And black dogs are much more ferocious than white dogs. (Ask any shelter worker - they'll tell you: people are afraid of black dogs. Those fuzzy white ones? Not so much.)

Yes, ferocious is exactly how I would describe our dog. Exactly.

What exactly do you have against your sister? Is she a scat identifying expert?

Bullwinkle said...

Good point ;)

My sister lives where bear and moose traipse through her back yard (along with the assorted regular (and smaller) wild critters.

And she'd be amused if I sent her a picture of bear scat. (Now, if it were NOT bear scat; she'd laugh at me.)

Sisters: that special relationship

Sisters are the best.

Mine will be making fun of the fact that out of about 400 houses in our huge subdivision, it's my front yard that a bear decided to crap on.

You are definitely right - Sisterly love is a very special relationship.

Looks like you have a great guard dog! :)
