Yesterday was my birthday! So did I paint the town red? Not exactly. I adopted another special needs cat. (If I don’t do it, who will?) Equally adorable to the one I have and looks a lot like Morgan except they are missing opposite eyes. It’s been exciting (cat adoption is never normal for me) and there will be posts about the ride. More to follow.
The best thing – I had to go to our local pet food
store yesterday. I hate going on Saturday. All the rescues are there with their adorable homeless critters. There were five dogs and all were beautiful and very calm. There is always a commotion on adoption days. Kids yelling. One woman came up to me (I have that kind of face) to tell me that she didn’t expect to go home with a dog (her family including Dad had picked out a beauty). I told her not to come on Saturdays. She said that they were looking but this was going so fast. I saw the dog the kids and Dad wanted. He was a beauty. Some sort of medium-sized terrier mix. Brown and black. Just beautiful. She confided that she has a Yorkie and another small dog and this dog was much calmer than either of the other two. It’s a beautiful thing to see a successful adoption. Warmed my heart.
Dear Siri – Our local radio station has a “Dear Siri” segment. You can call in with questions for her. The answers are like Judge Judy with a lot of bleeping going on (due to naughty words). It was funny the first few times but now it’s too predictable. This week Siri did a car commercial complete with bleeped words. I’m surprised there isn’t some sort of copyright infringement going on here.
A week of happy people. – This isn’t my favorite time of year. In my family, people wait until January to die. It’s their revenge to make us stand in the cold at the cemetery. This week there was some good. A really nice staff person at one of my local stores looked at what I was buying and advised me to wait two days. Something about a holiday sale. (Is Martin Luther King Day another black Friday?) I saved 25% on my purchases. Then a Starbucks barista confided her secret to being so upbeat. She keeps her “crap” at home. Very good advice for anyone serving the public.
Spastic spellcheck – Spellcheck is having issues with “it’s” and “its.” It doesn’t know which is which. It’s easy really. If you can put an “is” in there (it is), it requires an apostrophe. If not, it’s possessive and doesn’t. Spellcheck has been changing my words back and forth multiple times (the same word). Maybe she needs a time out.
So how was your week?
