It’s important to have goals, things to work towards, that give you a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Lately, my goals have been “get out of bed in the morning.”

But I’m setting another one.

I’m going to learn to shoot a gun like this. I don’t know when. I don’t know how. But I’m envious of that look on Blake Wylie’s face.

  1. The first goal of my post was to tell you that I think house trained llamas are equally as funny as tiny cat pants.

    The second would be to say that this is my first visit to your site and it is good that you are adding additional goals to your life. I, too, set my daily goal to get out of bed. I think I might be ready for another as well.

  2. House-trained llamas? That is pretty funny. Are there really such a thing? Are they like other pets, in that, are they going to want to share the bed?

  3. Llamas are actu very nice animals. Just beware of their cousins, alpacas. But alpacas make very nice steaks.

  4. Well, I don’t have any pets of my own. Never have. So I don’t know much about these bedding down habits. All I know is that your pets had no interest in bedding down with me while I’ve had a few lovers whose pets seemed to prefer to cuddle under my butt or in my armpit than with the usual bedmate. Go figure.

    But I’m going to have to suggest the llama get it’s own bed somewhere nearby. They are large animals that spit and drool. Actually, I think they are more like horses and often sleep standing up.

  5. I wonder if you could get a grant to study the behavior of pets of people you sleep with versus pets of people you sleep with, when you’re in their beds…

  6. I don’t do studies of that sort. Why don’t we find some cute, interesting pet owner to get a grant to study me and these pets.

    Did I tell you I am cat sitting for some new big wig on campus for the next 3 weeks?

    Word’s getting around. I think that grant might be possible.

  7. Come now, there must be one cute pet owning pet studying person in your vast collection of lovers. I don’t think we have to go out and find you another one, just locate and exploit the skills of one you already have.

    Unless you’re looking for #58…

  8. You’re the one keeping the list – see who’s on it that is suitable. I’ll discuss when my schedule gets around to that person again.

  9. 1) Llamas are extremely dignified and naturally house-trained, which is a good thing because they are generally stronger and more agile than two-legged creatures like us. There’s a mama llama in Warren County who stands guard over some exceptionally stupid sheep with a couple of Great Pyrenees(es). I often see them standing a bit away from the sheep with their heads together, looking for all the world like three co-workers griping on coffee break. Their inherent dignity doesn’t stop me from laughing like a loon at the phrase “house-trained llamas,” though.

    2) I have never said “that’s hottt” in a mock-Paris- Hilton-voice — and meant it — until I clicked on that photo link. I scare myself.


  10. llamas are great pets. Don’t know if they bed down with you but my son’s teacher has a house trained (mostly) llama. So there is such a thing. She has Emu (sp?) too but says they are vile creatures. House trained llamas is so much more hilarious. When I win the 340 mil I plan to have a house trianed llama.
