Today we bought a dog. I have been wanting a dog for a while and narrowed it down to a beagle being the dog of choice. After thinking and researching and thinking yet more about how our lives would change, we brought Cooper home today.
We decided on a name a few week's ago, making it all a bit more real. His full name is Cooper Black Bold, which is after an iconic font (you may know it from the Easyjet logo). It's an awesome name I think. And more people and dogs should be named after fonts.
He will be more of an observant of this FridayDateNight as I don't think he is partial to themed cocktails. I am sure he appreciates the sentiment of the playlist dedicated to dogs and food around his heritage. Or, you know, doesn't notice at all.

We're using the opportunity to make Mexican foods and maybe a cheeky margarita. Like we need an excuse.

Lots of foods have trace elements of things that can kill you, or make you ill at least. It's good to dabble with one's mortality every now and again. Play Russian roulette.
I sent him a couple of websites of deathly foods and left it up to him to combine whatever he fancied.
On all the lists was hotdogs, not because of the terrible 'food' they contain, but because of the choking hazard. What a terrible thing to die from.

Transpires that this is a traditional dish from Newfoundland and, since I am unlikely to visit, I thought I would virtually visit through the medium of Internet recipes.
Music wise, I think there may well be a few sea shanties, Newfoundland is an island happily into their tradition.
