My Last Hundred Bucks: Pancake Props, Rainy Day Pizza, Dog Stuff

Where’d you spend your last hundo, Allegra Ringo?

$1, Box of pancake mix at the 99 Cent Store. Used to make pancakes that were used as props in a sketch, not eaten. I felt like a real first-world shithead about it.

$13, Ramen at my favorite ramen restaurant. I don’t mean to brag, but I added tofu AND an egg. Then I made it into two meals by adding packaged ramen noodles to the leftover broth, so I feel this purchase was well-justified.

$10, Having the groomer expel my dog’s anal glands. I still have no idea what expelling anal glands entails, and I would pay thousands of dollars to keep it that way.

$24, Pizza delivery. I was hungry and it was raining, and in Los Angeles there is an explicit rule that we do not leave the house when it rains. My hands were tied.

$27, Misc. dog supplies. $15 of this was a harness she chewed through in 10 minutes. Another portion went toward an adorable if unneeded toy.

$22, Breakfast for my boyfriend and me at Ed’s. It’s my favorite diner and the only place I have a “usual” (we share a breakfast burrito and a stack of pancakes).

$3, Mysterious Japanese candy. I stopped at a Japanese market and bought some strawberry candies so I could use my debit card to get cash. Then I threw in some tomato-flavored candies because they sounded weird. Both candies were pretty bad, and the store didn’t give cash back.

What is this favorite Ramen restaurant you speak of?

@Elliot Sharron@facebook Ramen Jinya! I’m not really sure why I didn’t mention it by name.

Did you bring the packaged noodles to the restaurant?

@selenana Haha, no, I did that at home. I haven’t gotten to that point…YET.

Sorry to be that person, but if you are talking about expressing anal glands, that is probably something you should be asking your vet, not your groomer to do. It depends on how easily your dog’s glands are expressed, but a thorough expressing involves penetration.

@PrettyNicola Also, I hope that $10 included a tip, b/c expressing anal glands = messy eew.

@PrettyNicola Also, they usually donn’t need it. Like, if you have a healthy dog, this does not need to be done.

if your dog tends to chew through leashes/collars/harnesses, you should definitely get lupine products. they have a lifetime guarantee so you can exchange it for a brand new one if anything happens to it, usually right at the store you bought it from!
