I showed that (link) to my brother- he says something to the effect that "the dog is living better than most people." Only in New York! (fyi: I've never been to NYC).

I used to have a dachshund back in the day. Fritsy. I miss him. I really miss having a dog, oh god. In several years I might be running around with some dog attached to me acting as a suffragette child. I don't foresee this NOT happening. better dogs than cats, anyway. Today, while waiting for the bus, I discovered some of my neighbors have a sheepdog, so I'm probably going to steal it and change its name to, I don't know, Madonna Guy Ritchie Ciccone. something FLASHY.

in other news, I got my grades back, which was a surprisingly good deal. a D+ I can live with. no Dean's List, but considering how insane life has been, well, cool. A's and B's everywhere else.

my friend asked me how the job search was going....not so well. I've applied so many places but the economy is rough and there's nothing around. if something works out, considering how badly I do need the moneys right now, I should just enjoy this free time, because it's the first time since December I have not been stressed out. there are good things: all the flowers are in bloom, Gwen in the future!, everything's fragrant, my favorite restaurant ever (and attractive waitpeople and the thought of Craigslist but NAHHH too creepy!) walks to abandoned churches, a quiet cell phone, "Frasier," the air in the morning and breakfasts outside (! not quite BUT ALMOST). people seeing me in plaid shorts. bus rides in which people aren't calling me "a fucking dog" (o hay theme). STARBUCKS WITH ANOTHER BLOGGER (HI).

but without a job, I feel like a failure and that's no good. I feel like people will see me and be like WE THOUGHT YOU DIED/DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE/WERE IN A SPECIAL PROGRAM AND YOUR MOM BRAIDS YOUR HAIR. = "Liztomania" by the always well-dressed band, Phoenix, which I think is a remarkable attribute.

I saw a herd of Jehovahs today. they (appropriately) avoided my house.
