Dramatic Monotony

Friday, September 30, 2005

I'm sick and lonely. I have some sort of viral infection, so for the past week, I've been hacking, feeling dizzy, getting headaches, and had stomach difficulties. It's not been a lot of fun, especially since I've missed a lot of class. I feel horrendously guilty about it. My congestion is almost gone, but I still feel dizzy and achey.

I woke up at 5 this morning. And I've been awake since then. I was reminiscing about dogs because I was looking at shelter ads on Craig's List and Petfinder. I'm not allowed to have pets in this apartment, and to be honest, it's not a good time to have a dog anyway- my life is too unstable to be able to confidently provide for an animal for an extended period of time. But I still wish I could have a companion while doing something for the ridiculous number of shelter dogs that are out there.

I miss Niles, the current Shih Tzu/pitbull wannabe at my house. But I really miss Trixie, my childhood companion and the nicest dog on earth. My dad sent me a DVD of photos and he's been busily scanning things all summer. Here's my favorite shot with my dog, shortly after we adopted her from C.A.P.

I don't know why I wasn't smiling. I guess I wasn't into that when I was younger. But Trixie was so cute when she was little.

And remember, if you can, adopt shelter dogs. Up to 40% of dogs in shelters are purebred, and so many are euthanized every day. As I grow older, I get more vehement about this cause. Maybe some of it had to do with my love for Animal Cops, or it might stem from the brouhaha surrounding the adoption of Niles. I don't know. But the high-kill shelters in Los Angeles are disgusting.

(And no, Max, I'm not going to start my rant about the conditions of dogs in your neighborhood.)

Still not doing a full post. But I've gotten back to playing around in photoshop.



I'm still not finished finagling. I'll possibly update with more corrections. But I'm playing around with Rafael-like editing.

Holy shit, guys. It's been a long time since I've posted. However, I'm breaking my vow of silence in order to tell you THIS:



If you're as obsessed with Hackers as I am... well... even if you aren't... well... you'll love it.
