One guy who worked for the North County Times asked me about how I get story ideas. As I was telling him, I mentioned the fact that writing about parties is a lot easier than the type of writing he did.

I asked Yvonne about what she did. She mentioned working for Global School Net, a nonprofit organization that promotes online learning activities for kids.

I was interested in what she was saying, but I was shaking from the cold. She asked if I wanted some hot tea, and I said, “No. We’re just going to walk our dog around the block. We’ll come back if you think the party will still be going on.”

She said, “Oh, yeah. Now that the movies are over, we’ll probably bring the party into the house.”

I told her I’d be back after I thawed out on the dog walk.

After walking our dog, we saw a number of people leaving and decided to hop in our car and take off as well.

I got an email a few days later that read, “Are you warm yet?”

I take my mutt to parties, if they are dog friendly. I mean, hey...I didn't get a dog from the pound just to have him sit at home while I'm out partying all the time. So, if there's a party at a park or outdoors, I sometimes bring him.

Now you're taking your dog to the parties you crash? You really have become Zsa Zsa.
