A New Pet

Plinky said, “Pick a new pet to take home for free.” There’s no such thing as a free pet, as any respon­si­ble pet own­er knows! Beyond the costs of hous­ing and feed­ing the ani­mal, you have to pro­vide for health care such as pre­ven­tive med­ica­tion for heart­worms and oth­er par­a­sites (for dogs and cats, at least), […]

Meow vs. Arf

Live­jour­nal’s Writer’s Block ques­tion of the day is, “Cats or dogs– which do you pre­fer, and why?” I don’t pre­fer one over the oth­er. I’ve shared my life with cats and dogs from my ear­li­est years and love both. My par­ents would­n’t con­sid­er allow­ing dogs inside the house and weren’t hap­py about hav­ing cats there, but […]

What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What is the first thing you see when you walk in your house? Right now, the first thing any­body sees is Sam’s desk. No, that isn’t pre­cise­ly right. If you’re look­ing straight ahead at the wall, you see a col­lage by Katie, which is much lovelier.

NaBloPoMo, Again

I’m try­ing NaBloPo­Mo again! The theme this month is “Return,” although I’m not at all sure what the heck that’s sup­posed to mean.

The Flu? But That’s Why We Had Shots!

My girl has the flu! And she had not one, but two flu shots this year! She caught it from her sweet­ie down at Geor­gia Tech, and if there’s a place in Geor­gia that’s more inter­na­tion­al than the air­port, that’s it. So I sup­pose it’s one of those strains that she was­n’t vac­ci­nat­ed against. But still! […]

Weird Fish

If you’d told me yes­ter­day that there’s a fish with a trans­par­ent head, I would­n’t have believed you. I cer­tain­ly would­n’t have imag­ined that any­thing would look up and around through its own head for a greater range of vision! But that is exact­ly what the bar­rel­eye (Macropin­na micros­toma) does. http://www.youtube.com/v/RM9o4VnfHJU
