... it’s amazing how it’s impossible for a post that mentions either to appear on GM (or just about anywhere else) without multiple people opining about how superior they are to anyone who doesn’t eat meat.
This is all happening about 3 miles from the house where I grew up, and where my stepfather and my sister and her husband still live.
Update: Happy ending! Hopefully they’ll be quickly adopted by someone who isn’t a monster.

So I am NOT going to link the story of horrific animal abuse I just saw, because there’s no reason to traumatize the rest of you.
I had a headache this afternoon, so I decided to take a nap. I took some Advil, used the bathroom and then walked into my bedroom — to find Buster and Sophie waiting for me on the bed.
I’ve been doing the vegetarian thing for about a year now, and I think the biggest surprise has been how little I’ve missed meat. Occasionally it’ll cross my mind that a steak or some fried chicken or bacon would taste good, but it’s never been very strong — nothing at all like the cravings I get when I’m dieting, for…
I was walking my dogs, using our normal route (or at least, our normal route when Buster isn’t on bed rest). A car pulled over next to me — I recognized it because it’s literally papered with taped-down flyers about how only Catholics are going to heaven and a lot of shit about abortion, so I know exactly where the…
There’s a severe rainstorm in my area today, and my boss sent a group text to everyone in the department early this morning to say she was going to work from home, and that we could do the same if I wanted.

I’m trying to put together a dog pen and I am utterly lost.
I was half-asleep on my couch watching iZombie when I heard a gigantic crash and all the lights went out. They flicked back on momentarily, but then there was a slightly quieter crash and they went off and stayed off.
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?
