No Kommencement for us tonight. I took an experimental drive to the gas station, and decided the less driving I do tonight, the better. The light snow only serves to conceal the solid sheet of ice that the road has become. I have all-wheel drive and a conservative driving instinct; but I don’t trust Maryland drivers to be similarly sensible.
avivahg got a puppy today. She’s a shepherd/holstein mix; part dog, part cow. The cow bovine ancestry is evident from the way she smells, aven after two baths.
She seems quite healthy, especially in the vocal chords. Until moments ago she was doing an impressive rendition of a gigantic nail on a chalkboard. avivahg must have either allowed her out of her crate (apparently, crating is very important for young dogs – develops their vocal capability, or something), or strangled her.
If I don’t go dancing soon my feet are either going to atrophy or simply secede. I sent a diplomatic mission down there to ease tensions a few hours ago, but I haven’t heard back from it. Rumor has it it’s being held hostage by my liver. The latter’s complaints are blown way out of proportion, no matter what you’ve heard. Don’t believe everythying you see on Al Spleenzeera.
