Yay! We finally got our dog!! Her racing name is WS Bright Flare, she was used to being called "Flare" so we decided to keep the name, it suits her anyway.

Here are a few pics... I have about a kajillion more but I'm too lazy to get them off the camera right now. More to come!

Right now, it is perfect B.C. weather outside. Grey, overcast, and with a nice chilly breeze.

This weather reminds me so much of the first 17 years of my life. It's the kind of weather that makes you turn on the lights in the middle of the day, just to have some warm light in the room. Or the kind of weather that makes you fantasize about the most comfortable hoodie you ever had that you inadvertantly left at the park one day. And, I really.. reallly.. like it.

Dear Valued Customer,

You called in and I had the fortune to answer your call. You explained your ridiculous position to me, and followed it up with a stupid demand. I then explained why I could not/would not/was legally obligated not to comply with your stupid demand, and explained your alternative options.

At this point, you attempted to get your way by yelling at me/trying to charm me/being coy and flirty/acting like I was a little touched in the head. I explained again exactly what I told you in the first place, except I dumbed it down for you. Divide my IQ by yours and add ten for the number of times you forced me to restate myself.

Then, finally, you understood/gave up/got sick of arguing with me and acknowledged that you weren't getting your way and were aware of the alternative options. Against my better judgement, I asked you if there was anything else I could help you with today. You said "No..." and then proceeded to tell me the exact same problem all over again. WHY DID YOU DO THAT? WHY? DIDN'T WE JUST GO OVER THIS?

I must insist that you fist yourself, waist deep.

Signed,
Your Friendly Call Centre CSR

Last night I had a dream that I was arguing with sistermaryeris about who was a better poet, W.C. Fields or John Irving. She said Fields, I said Irving.

Yes, I am aware that neither of them are poets.

So has anyone read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke? I did and I absolutely loved it. I've heard it described as "Harry Potter for grown-ups", but that's almost an insult, in my opinion.. and I love Harry Potter. This book just goes alot deeper... it considers political and spiritual and personal effects and ramifications of magic, etc. It's kinda like Donnie Darko, tricky to explain. It's set mostly in England, during the time of the Napoleonic Wars.

"Can a magician kill a man by magic?" Lord Wellington asked Strange.
Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. "I suppose a magician might," he admitted, "but a gentleman never could."

And here's another one of my favourite passages from it, slightly longer: (not a spoiler)

Well... I was sitting around in my pajama pants this morning feeling sorry for myself because of my crappy job and not being in school... when my firefly bag arrived! Then, not five minutes after I opened it, I got a call to come for an interview for a job that I've been dying to have for months now. So, the bag is already bringing me good luck!

my cat decided to pose with the bag...Collapse )

Hrmm... there's something like eight entries on my friends page about Frienditto today. Why is everyone just finding out about it today in particular? It's been around for at least a month...

Wow. Just... wow. This has got to be the most fascinating photographic essay I've seen... well, ever.

When I was a kid I knew a guy who did way too much speed and he'd fill up all his spare time (speed addicts have alot of spare time) dumpster diving. He found some pretty incredible stuff... apparently posh clothing stores often throw out stuff they can't sell, but first they mutilate it, by cutting a huge hole in it or throwing out only one shoe of a pair. So he started wearing this stuff around.

Anyway, he had tunnels through the junk too.
