In which I make a request…Animals in shelters

Christmastime is special to me, as it is to most people. I’ve never lost my childlike wonder for the lights, the tree lots, the snow, the gifts, really, any of it. As I grow, though, parts of the holiday that are less enchanted seem to hit me like a truck and I can’t seem to ...

ASPCA: I need your help

I rarely ask for things on here (though if you are on twitter, I ask for presents all the darn time).

Normalcy after sickness

Holy crap on a cracker being sick sucks! My blog was behind because I was lazy this weekend and thus, I had nothing insightful to say while 50 small monkeys pounded various spots on my head and made me feel like I wanted to throw up every 30 seconds. I had the time of my ...
