A new pet for Marianne

Thanks to dumb Harbor Freight Tools, Marianne now knows about her back-ordered pet. They sent the back order notification to her instead of me. Harbor Freight is the I-HOP of on-line discount hardware stores. "Oscar Oinker" motion activated pig runs on 2 AA batteries and oinks whenever something passes in front of it. I thought it would be the perfect pet for the carefree grad student. I want one to keep in front of my fridge. As we speak some third world children are busy in some sweat shop in Indonesia making thousands of motion activated pigs for us Yankee Dogs. I'm not sure how she will keep the pig off the couch!

Love you, Dad! And I can't wait for my pig!

Something to keep your gnomes company? I hardly think it would keep them in order.

Who knows, maybe those gnomes will fight for rides on the pig! You know how wild gnomes can get while in Marianne's presence.
