One year.
It came, it went.
Here's to another six months and maybe a summer leeching off the government.

out of range

Since I am reluctant to give up my 416 area code and long distance charges are so exuberant my cellphone is off for, oh I'd say, 100% of the time. I haven't used my cell phone in so long that when I went to pick it up today (I do occasionally pick it up, on the off chance someone has sent me a text message...that almost never happens) it was covered in a layer of fine but definite dust.
I let my cellphone get dusty.

happy thanksgiving

The following conversation happened whilst walking the dog on a thanksgiving monday afternoon.


OSCAR, the dog, drops his ball and shows no interest in picking it up. ME and T pause.

T: Oscar get your ball.

As ME bends over to pick up the ball.

ME: It looks like there might be a dog over there. He's more interested in that then the ball.

They walk a few paces closer. OSCAR is still focused on the small animal which appears to be short, no more then a foot tall, fuzzy, and is black with a white spot on it's back. It is tethered to the porch of a trailer.

ME: Actually, (she pauses while craning her neck to get a better view over some bushes) it looks more like a pig then a dog...

T: It's not a pig. It's a dog.

After ME stops and stares at the animal for a moment, she turns to T and says,

ME: No, it's definitely a Pig.
