Garden State Update (Updated)

Newsflash: Moose turns world on with smile in blockbuster blog talk at Rutgers. Enthusiastic audience says, "She took a nothing day and suddenly made it all seem worthwhile". . . . Yesterday's horoscope for Aries affirmed in every detail. (See Thursday's post.) Roxie's World considers adding an official astrologist to growing list of official persons. . . .Mark Twain still drunk in seedy bar around the corner from RW Enterprises global headquarters, convinced that persona integrity has been severely compromised . . . .Rutgers English faculty vowing to become regular visitors to Roxie's World, planning series of meetings devoted to trying out new blog names for themselves.

One minor disappointment: In all the excitement, Moose deviated from her prepared text and neglected to thank Candy Man for his devoted attention to Roxie's World. Moose is planning to join Mark in the bar as soon as she and Goose get home this afternoon to drown her sorrows over this breach of etiquette. She hereby publicly and profusely thanks Candy Man for being a dog's best friend in cyberspace.

It was a great day, kids, and we're just as proud and happy as we can be. Paws up to Moose in her moment of triumph and a five-paw salute to Rutgers English for awesome publicity and extraordinary hospitality.

Update: Those of you who are dying for details of Moose's lecture should run over and check out our new best friend in the blogosphere, Manuel at A Blog Next Door. He has an amazingly detailed summary of the talk, with verbatim quotes of some of the funniest lines. He also says very nice things about Moose's first attempt to analyze what we've been up to here in Roxie's World. A big lick on the cheek and a hearty welcome to this brilliant new blogger!

    She rocked! She rolled! We all ate pink and green sugar cookies in the shape of Fox Terriers. (Cool, eh? and a bit surreal. . . . ) Hey Rox -- see if you can get Goose to figure out how to upload the talk. It's some of the best thinking I've heard concerning blogging, style, sexuality, and sheer doggedness. Though I suppose Moose may want to take the talk on the road for a bit before posting it. Still, It would be a fine thing indeed to make a version of the talk more widely available. Hope you're all resting on your laurels. Well done, all!

  5. Oh boy, and did we were singing to inspire or what? The success was, of course, loaded with good omens from the RW-horrorscope, but it might be as well that we let in some of the bad girl Gwen Stephani's "Wind It Up" marching band drums soak our spirits a bit. (Hey, we don't have to tell you EVERYTHING we do when you leave us!)

    As you know, Roxie can nap like a champion to any rhythm at any volume, but when it comes to family support, cheerleading and goatherding are first. We still can shake, jump and pump for a good cause.

    Well done Moose! Now we want a UMD version ASAP... I volunteer to do the cookie baking, but I agree with Dudley the beagle: we need a local venue where pointy hats, happy cups, and napping mats are allowed.

    Any suggestions?

  6. Way to go Roxie, Moose & Goose!
    I bet it was awesome - I'm eager to see Moose up on the YouTubes =)
    Take care and have a hell of a celebratory weekend - you all deserve it!
    Love & Cheers,
    Auntie Faye

  7. If sleep is celebration, then we are having one heck of a party here in Roxie's World. The entire pack engaged in some epic snoring last night, I assure you.

    Thanks for all the kind words, everybody. I'm glad Dog-Eared Book brought up the terrier cookies, but let us not forget the dog-bone shaped cakes we had for dessert or the place cards and name tags with Roxie's picture. I'm telling you, kids, that fella from Rutgers who bears such a startling resemblance to the Boy with the Pink and Black Balloons on his back (see http://roxies-world.blogspot.com/2007/06/on-virtue-and-vice.html) really knows how to execute a theme party.

    More soon from the happy-as-clams gang at Roxie's World.

    xo,
    Moose

  11. Puh-lease, honey -- I'm Mary; you're Phyllis. Who gets to be Sue Ann? Guess that would have to be Candy Man -- who cooks, and cooks. . . . ;-)
