I was reading this conversation about candy corn on the Root, and it got me thinking about foods I love that a lot of people hate.
I’m not much of a drinker, but I love candy with the pure, unending devotion of a 7-year-old. So maybe once or twice a year — when I need a pick-me-up after a bad week or it’s my birthday or goddammit, I just want good candy — I splurge on something that’s ridiculously delicious but way too expensive (not to mention…
So remember how yesterday I was bitching about my coworker insisting I was wrong on a style point that I was definitely not wrong about?
What little things are making you crazy all out of proportion today, GT?
Buster is officially off crate rest for the first time since October! The neurologist says he looks great. His gait is normal, he has the correct reflex reactions, and he’s clearly feeling much better.
Buster bit on of the vet techs after his surgery. The neurology center told me that it was no big deal and it’s very common for dogs to be fear aggressive after surgery, but they had to notify Animal Control because it’s the law. They said to just tell them where he was staying and that he was being quarantined.
Just heard from the surgeon. Buster is out of surgery and awake, which is a huge load off my mind.
Buster’s going into surgery at 2 p.m. PST. Everyone please think very good thoughts in his direction?
MRI results came in for Buster. They did find a bulging disc, but the doctor said it’s so tiny that they wouldn’t generally do surgery because most dogs wouldn’t even feel it.
I saw the neurologist today. Buster is going in for an MRI and probably surgery on Thursday, after which he’ll need 4 weeks of strict bed rest.
I’m at a loss as to what to do with Buster. I’m supposed to be keeping him as still as possible, but he flatly will not poop until he’s walked a couple of blocks. He can control it — he always goes very quickly when it rains because he hates rain so much — but otherwise he just refuses.
... comes from this charming gentlemen, who is pretty sure the entire system is broken if men keep getting punished for harmless, romantic things that don’t remotely rise to the level of harassment, like asking their employees to watch them masturbate.
Here’s mine: I’ve been on hold waiting to talk to a representative at my company’s benefits hotline for two hours and nine minutes, and I am ready to stab everyone.
... that if a male writer publishes a nonfiction book in which he repeatedly and gleefully brags about spending years harassing and assaulting vulnerable women, but he’s also really super good at writing, it’s just not fair to hold the things he publicly confessed to against him, as long as he suddenly decides that…
This is my first meatless Thanksgiving — any suggestions for the best plant-based turkey substitutes?
... to stay home alone watching horror movies on Halloween night when I know the last tenant killed herself in my apartment on Halloween.
Slave labor and appalling conditions for the pigs raised for gelatin. I guess the animal cruelty part, at least, shouldn’t be a surprise, but seeing it in black and white is still horrifying.
Anyone have any experience with Task Rabbit?
After conferring with Buster’s vet, I’ve come to the decision that I need to board him for at least a few weeks so he can get proper bed rest.
I’m researching trainers for Buster and Sophie, and it’s stressing me the hell out. I need someone who does in-home training and can help me deal with Buster’s dog-aggression issues and Sophie’s anxiety and hyperactivity issues, as well just basic training.
