Dogue de Bordeaux (a.k.a THE FRENCH WARRIOR)

OK. a little unrealistically huge for me and super expensive but right now i am over the moon about french mastiffs...

I found this informative website.


The Dogue de Bordeaux is a powerful muscular dog that makes an excellent guard to both person and property. Like all molosser-type dogs, the Dogue De Bordeaux has strong nerves and is not easily excited. Its personality is balanced, quiet and calm, not given to unnecessary barking unless sufficient reason....such as an intruder.  The Dogue de Bordeaux is a charming breed that is very warm and friendly to humans. It is very good with children, a companion that has plenty of patience and will tolerate typical teasing such as tail pulling and other things which undisciplined children tend to engage. Dogues are happy to be with their children and be part of their games, such as dress up time and lets play dog show. 

Wait what? I didn't realize that "let's play dog show" was a game. Anyway just look at him. He is unbelievable. And according to wikipedia the breed has been utilized in many different forms, from using their brawn to pull carts or haul heavy objects, to guarding flocks and used to protect castles of the European elite. SOOOOO naturally I need several.

i want a pet.

so this is what i would get and then what i can get. kittens have been excluded due to intense allergic reaction..that and they grow up and turn into adult cats. fuck that.

-baby fennec fox (not realistic)
-baby rottweiler (my number one choice)
-baby siberian husky
-baby pitbull
-baby lovebird <3... its no falcon, but it will do.

so my plan is to get one of these within the next month. normally id worry more about money and seeing as how i have to save money for a new camera and all... but you can't put a price on friendship. and thats what this pet will be. my new best friend. and i will love it forever and take countless self portraits with it.

work is boring.

thieves rule!

SO someone stole my purse from my car Friday night/Saturday morning. which RULES of course! the jerkoff lucked out with

-canon eos 30d
-canon 15mm fixed lens
-anna corinna black purse
-all my super expensive makeup
(because i do not put drugstore shit on my face)
-metrocard (monthly)
-my wallet with some cash and all my ids

This may not sound like much to you. but that was at least $4200.00 worth of shit.

The icing on the cake was when I went to file the report and the cop acted like I was the criminal. If you are reading this, thanks for that officer!

I love life.

I have decided to reread Les Chants de Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont (aka Isidore Ducasse)...I highly recommend it if you are feeling sadistic and mad. A man after my own heart, Monsieur Ducasse makes me feel sane.

To be perfectly honest. I have been having a pretty good run. I have been shooting a lot, and managed to squeeze out another tear and have been going on reviews and all that good stuff. I've been productive. I also ran into my celebrity crush on Astor place. He was magnificent. I guess I will take the good with the bad. At the end of the day it is all "just stuff" ...right? riiiiight.....


Warning: If you have a 30d with a 15 mm lens on it. Don't let me catch you using it, because I will most likely jump you. I don't consider myself very tough but I am pretty sure I would shed my skin and bark at the moon.
