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), […]
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 […]
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.
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. I got today’s post in just under the wire, obviously—but I did post!

That’s an old photo of Katie and Kioshi. I’m not the family photographer. She is, followed by Sam. But there’s a photo, and this post really needs one.
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! […]
In much lighter news, The Girl is in the Pacific Northwest! For three weeks! She’s scouting colleges and seeing friends and so on. She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, saying she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good People, and I hope to meet them when they come to […]
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
