Having Toby running round the house, I decided this morning that if I get a dog of my own, he'll be called Bones McCarthy. "The only rabid thing about my dog, sir, is his aggressive anti-communist stance." And if he makes a mess in the house, I'll be able to say things like "At long last, Bones, have you no sense of decency?"

Toby had me up early. I should really go back to bed.
I have, on my fur, 205 communist fleas.
Nice.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Our new dog is a total fascist, but she does make the trains run on time.

Ha! Yes. We adopted her a few months back (might have been during your board hiatus). She's a cockapoo, just like the guy to the left, and also from the humane society, just like the guy to the left. She is only a year and a half, and still has a lot of puppy in her. But I'm getting tons of exercise! Here's a pic. Her name is Scout, and I hate her. But I also love her:

She's adorable. Did Ari have any input on picking her out and naming and all that stuff?

Much as I love my girls and dote on them, I find myself wanting a dog in the household, too.

Thanks. She's lucky she's adorable. And he did have input in both. You should get a dog!

She and Ari are good buds, I'm guessing?

B has pushed the dog idea for some time and we almost did it this summer, but we ended up having house repairs that were disruptive (and pricey), so it got shelved. I'd be interested in doing it in December because I won't be teaching next term, so I'll be home most of the time, but walking a new puppy in January would be a pain in the ass. Plus there's my anxiety about what it'll do to the girls. While it wouldn't the same as when we introduced that psychopathic kitty last year, they are really sheltered and spoiled. A new puppy, tho, would be deferential to the residents, I hope, which would make the settling in period a bit easier. Or maybe I'm deluding myself.

They are good buds, but she is very attached to me (go figure).

I would advise against getting a puppy and go for an adult dog (still young, like two or three) that's been in a foster home. Puppies are awful. :mrgreen:

My thinking is that with a puppy, it'll be easier to integrate the species (the puppy hasn't had as many experiences and would be more amenable to a couple princess-y cats). I'd love to avoid the housetraining aspect, tho.

Maggie really wants a dog, but neither of us have the time to take care of it. It's getting hard to keep reminding her of this fact.

Whenever people ask if I have children I tell them that I have a cactus (which is true). Instead of a dog, you should get a cactus.

I got a B on a paper! First time I've ever gotten a B on a paper. So weird.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.
