Distracting my dogs

When I walk the dogs, sometimes I am in a hurry.  I just want them to piss and poop so I can bring them back and have the peace of mind that they won't have an accident inside the house.  So as we come close to the the house on our return, I would try to coax them to poop.  And when I see them doing their pre-poop dance of turning around going back in forth before squatting to poop, I really hate it when another dog approaches.  Because any dog owner knows that dogs get easily distracted by another dog or another animal.  All of a sudden they would forget that they want to poop and would try to greet the new dog.  So annoying.  It is not the fault of the other dog walker.  It is not the fault of the other dog.  And it is not the fault of my dogs too since it is their nature.  Nonetheless it is still very vexing.

Somebody to love by Jordan Smith

A very powerful and beautiful rendition of Somebody to love by Jordan Smith from The Voice.  Made me want to buy the album of Queen to hear the original and compare.

My response to 3 profiles.

I believe that if I have nothing good to say to somebody, I would just not say anything to that person.  Some of the profiles I encounter are just ridiculous that it deserves an equally sarcastic response.  But I am not saying to their faces.  Just posting it here where it can still be somewhat anonymous.

 "So you won't send a face pic but demands that others unlock their pics for you?  Who do you think you are?  Prince William?"

 "So you think being mix is better that being Latin or Asian?  Is mix a euphemism for something you are ashamed of that you would rather be mix than be labeled as a particular race?

"Sure your body looks nice but at 46, your face will surely show it.  So stop demanding somebody half your age cause you are not all that.  And you won't send a face pic?  I am sure people are lining up to meet you."

Lea, you ruined Allegiance for me.

The main reason why I went to NYC last November was to join my friends watching Lea Salonga at the Longacre Theatre performing the lead role in Allegiance.  This would have been her return to Broadway after her appearances at Miss Saigon and Les Miserable.  So it was a big deal to see her again at Broadway.

2 days prior to our ticketed show date, we learned that she went to Miami to attend a friend's wedding.  We were hoping she would be back for our Sunday matinee show but alas she was still absent.  So I was already put off even before the show started.  And I must say that my opinion of the show may have been influenced by my displeasure.

Although the understudy Elena Wang, George Takei and Telly Leung were good, it was not enough for me to truly enjoy the show.  The musics were forgettable.  The dance numbers were simple and unimpressive. And the story was somewhat predictable.  I must say George made me cry at the end but it was too little too late.  So Lea, you definitely ruined it for me.  I will never make any effort to watch you ever again.

3 stars out of 5 for the show.
