Here’s a movie of my cousin Dave and I playing with my family’s new dog, Diego, on Christmas. To be clear, he’s been with us for about a month now; Diego didn’t pop out of a box under the tree or anything. His original owners realized that they didn’t have the time to keep a dog and they were probably pretty stunned by Diego’s apparent bad luck. In his first year of life he’s had two surgeries. One to remove a bunch of industrial paper towels that were blocking his intestines, and another to bolt his hip back together after an unfortunate meeting with a moving vehicle. So my dad decided to adopt him. As you can see in the video, this puppy is a lot of fun. He’s mischievous too. Diego likes to eat things like shoe laces, gloves, socks, and imitation Uggs. I’m sure he’ll come around in that regard. Hopefully Diego’s luck has changed because he fits in really well with the Padillas.

Finally, a video tour of my new apartment. You’ll forgive the poor audio. My recorded voice always sounds bad and it didn’t help that my Roomba was running in the background. Currently, the video is being hosted by YouTube
and blip.tv. I did this because I wanted to compare the services. Eventually I will take down the one that I am least happy with.
Kat and I are really happy with the new place! Everything from the exposed brick to the paint job really suits our tastes. The apartment isn’t brand new… we’ve been here since June, so we’ve had time to pick out furniture and set things up the way we like. So far, everyone who has visited has been really impressed. The place has also proved to be really good for parties. There’s plenty of room for guests and shenanigans. As a bonus, we haven’t received any noise complaints yet, meaning that we either have really tolerant neighbors or the place is well insulated.
Anyway, enjoy the tour!
