August 2002 Archives

My apologies for the glaring lack of content lately for those of you who are kind enough to make the trip to dog:blog.

That implies both good and bad news, of course. It's good that none of the crew has any new or major medical issue to talk about; bad that there are no miracle cures for the ones with chronic conditions to talk about either!

Of course, with the youngest pet turning 8 years old in October, much of what we are dealing with is age-related. And as much as I hate to think about it, one of the birds and two of the rottweilers are already pushing hard against what is considered the normal lifespan for their respective species and breeds.

Enough of that depressing stuff. We do what we can, right? I'm making some notes in MORE... (mostly for myself, but you are all welcome to read them) about some of the things to talk about and take care of over the next few weeks.

Side trip... Are You A Geek?


Ah, a quiz I can relate to for a change... from Heather's blog :) although I think my percentage should have been slightly higher. I'm definitely a geek liaison but I should have been a little more towards geekiness, in the high 40% area.

You are 39% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.
Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.
