The story behind the name:

One evening, at the Old Broadway Grill in Fargo, North Dakota, my brother caught the end of a Mountain Dew commercial. In the commercial, a Mountain Dew drinker was riding a shark in the ocean. My brother exclaimed in surprise, not realizing that it was a commercial. When I told him he declared "All I saw was a guy coming out of the shower with a shark." Of course, he meant water, but the idea of showering with sharks has been with me ever since.

Sneeze, Sneeze, Yawn

It's 9:45 and I'm watching TV on a Wednesday night. The watching TV itself is not odd. In fact, not much about my current scenario is odd. It's a pretty normal, boring night...

Just one second, I have to run upstairs and prevent my dog from being naughty...

OK, I'm back. Millie was upstairs eating cardboard. Because we are moving next week (WOO HOO) we have cardboard boxes everywhere. Millie, for whatever odd doggy reason, really likes to rip the corners off these boxes and eat them. It is seriously annoying. Especially when I came downstairs tonight in order to help Mark get a little extra sleep. He is coming down with the cold that I am just getting over, and the dogs were being giant pains the butt in bed. I was reading anyway, and I figured I could read just as well downstairs as I could up.

Last night Mark and I went to vote for a Presidential candidate. We voted for Hillary. The school where we had our caucus was PACKED. Despite the fact that the news had been predicting record turnout for these caucuses, the people working there were woefully unprepared. By the time Mark and I made it to the voting table, they had run out of the sign-in sheets so we just wound up writing our names on a yellow legal pad and then putting an x beside Hillary's name.

After we voted, I went to my friend Anna's house for a glass of wine and a bowl of chocolate ice cream. We talked and caught up while her Irish Setter puppy, Zoe, terrorized everything in sight. Zoe is an adorable puppy. I have found that I have an odd effect on some dogs. There are a few dogs out there, and Zoe is one of them, that gets unbearably excited when I show up. She jumped all over me and couldn't stop putting parts of me in her mouth. When I got home, Quinn (our other dog) wouldn't stop sniffing my clothes where Zoe had been.

Anna was packing...getting ready to go to Panama. I'm a little jealous of her warm-weather vacation, but I think I'll be just as happy moving into my new house.

And now CSI: New York is over. Oops, I better go back and italicize the name of the TV show or my mom will get on my case. There. See Mom, I do learn. I think I'll watch the news and then head upstairs. Tomorrow will be another busy day.
