Aww!
My anti-dog, pro-cat friend told me, before we got Dex, that I would resent getting a dog within 6 months.
Not for a moment. Goddamn, they are so fun.
I am way more of a cat person than a dog person, but ... dogs are amazing. They love you like nothing else. I love that. I miss that.

My friend B at work, the single dad I've mentioned, got a puppy recently and he's had his kids bring her to work to visit a couple of times. Oh... my... gosh - most chilled out puppy ever. She makes people who said "I never want a dog" want a dog.
My CW -- live-in boyfriend and his three kids (and she is the best thing that could have happened to those kids -- just got a yellow lab puppy and it's the same thing: Low-key, awesome, gentle, non-hyper (relatively speaking) puppy and the kids LOVE her.

Haven't seen it, but the vids of deployed parents surprising their kids at school or wherever make me weep like the end of Old Yeller.
Oh, it's really good. Adult daughter, in her parents' living room. Dad says how amazing it was to watch her go from his little gilr into a soldier, and how proud he was of her. She's saying: "I just knew I wanted to do more with my life."

When parents can be proud of their kid, despite NOT loving the choice their kid made (like military, cop, other very dangerous work), I just think that's extra sweet.

Free country and all that.

I guess if you spout it you think it means you're on subject.
Toj, ask me if I care what you think. Go lecture your kids while you still have some credibility with them...

I'm watching Lady and the Tramp with the boys and it is making me angry. Poor dogs!

It is so different watching Disney movies as an adult. Perspective, and all that...

Furthermore, Toj, you had a very very very difficult time reading and comprehending a dear Abby or dear Amy letter where the guy said his gf expects him to do everything around the house, while she does nothing and couldn't get it through you thick skull that the fact that he didn't want to do everything around the house, while his gf did nothing, didn't somehow mean he did nothing and she did everything.

I highly doubt someone who is ^^^^^ that f'ing retarded is equipped with the tools necessary to have discussions about student counsel, much less national politics.

:D

So instead of calling out Obama who as you acknowledge does bait and switch shyte purely for political gain, plays with voters in typical slimeball politician fashion, and who tries to play the game better than his competition, you and others on here are going to criticize some guy who publicly admitted he was wrong on an issue he was very prominent on for all these years and changed his views out of love and understand for someone close to him?
Obama flops on gay marriage and yay for him, he's doing the right thing.

A Republican flops on gay marriage and he's criticized for doing so only because he had a proverbial "gun to his head."

More of Sam's- and other libs- typical hypocrisy.

My SIL took over hosting duties this year for her in-laws' St Patrick's dinner. The guest list has gone from about 100 down to 30 (which is still a little much for me).

We are invited every year, but always decline. This year, my MIL asked us to go because it will be her first social event since my FIL died and she wanted our support.

Ry has a fever of 101.1 today. I'm sorry my son doesn't feel well, but kinda glad that I have an excuse to stay home. My husband and E are going and promised to bring me home some corned beef.

I just saw on Facebook that Jasper's girlfriend went to Colorado with him this weekend. This was a trip for school that has been booked since last fall. I'm sitting at the airport waiting to leave for Vegas and am trying not to cry. And failing. Damnit I was doing better! But was afraid of getting blindsided by something like this.

Unfriend him so you don't see this stuff til you are tougher.

Vegas is fun. Distract yourself.
