Since in Canada we call US Thanksgiving “Thursday”, I don’t really have much to add to the whole foofaraw. I was thankful back in October; now I’m just bitterly anticipating having to go Christmas shopping.

But the nuzzle at my elbow reminded me that we’ve had Riga five years today. We got her at 10 weeks, when her first family returned her to the breeder because she required more time than they could deal with.

WHAT THE FU–?!!??!1!!? First off – who returns a puppy? And second, who makes that type of expensive mistake?

But I digress. Anyway, what better way to start off a Saturday evening than with some puppy photos!

Here she is on the first day:

   

And here she is today (plus Lambeau).

   

Better looking than any baby my deformed genes could’ve been part of. She’s a mighty good girl, and I like her a hell of a lot more than most people. Hell, she’s kept me from being the Angelo Buono to Scotchy’s Kenneth Bianchi. There’s a few people not missing because my dogs keep me centred, so for that alone she’s earned her praise.

I had some good ideas to write about for work and fun and personal stuff. I instead wasted all day on worthless at best knucklehead nonsense. I’ve been 40 for three days and I’ve barely left the house. Anyway, see you all tomorrow.

I heard USC made a stipulation that they won’t play the Notre Dame game in November because of the alternating year cold, talk about soft amirit.

theeWeeBabySeamus

If UGa loses in teh SEC Champs game, could Utah jump ‘Bama and get into the playoff?

King Hippo

The order of preference for comittee is likely UGA (with a win), then Utah (with a win), or failing that, Oklahoma/BayBay winner

King Hippo

Son de Clem, tOSU, and LSU in no matter what

theeWeeBabySeamus

Aside from Oregano has PAC12 ever had anyone else in playoff?

And just think, this maudlin crap is what they think works as ads…during FITBAW. Imagine how bad they must be, say, during an actual episode of Doctor Retard.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Only down by five scores with five minutes to play.
NC State has ’em right where we want them.

Oops. Nope.

So the Apple marketing team came up with a marketing for the holidays that is basically “Sorry Gramma isn’t here, use our technology to make Grampa cry.” Leave Grampa alone with his whisky.

It really is like I must live in a different goddamned world.

Of course, it is for the self indulgent assholes, who do shit to feel good about themselves, but don’t give a fuck about their ‘victims’.

Gramma’s not here, man.
