Letter To My Pet

Letter to My Pets:

When I say to move, it means to go someplace else, not to switch
positions with each other so there are still two of you in my way.

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. All other
dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note that placing your paw
print in the middle of MY plate and food does not stake a claim making it
YOUR plate and food.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help in your
quest to reach the bottom first, because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about
this. Do not think that I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort.

Dogs and cats actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to
sleep perpendicular to one another, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge of the door and try to pull it open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Honest.

Also, I have been using the bathroom by myself for quite some time --canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

To pacify you, my dear companions, I have posted the following notice on
our front door:

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and then Complain About Our Pets

1. The pets live here. You don’t.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why it's called "fur"niture.)
3. To you, our pets are just animals. To us, they are an adopted son/daughter who happens to be hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.
4. Dogs and cats are better than kids because: they don't ask for money all the time
- they are easier to train
- they usually come when called
- they don't hang out with drug-using friends
- they don't need a gazillion dollars for a college education, and if
they get pregnant, you can sell the children.

Another WTF Moment

Last Sunday I was walking through Angrignon Park at dusk. All of a sudden, in the middle of the park, with no other human around, there before me appeared a pug wearing a fierce fur coat. With the collar turned up, no less. I think I was graced by the presence of the famed pimp pug of Angrignon.

My Favorite Quote of the Day

"Sometimes I wish I was brilliant but then I think, well at least I'm always right."

Hahahaha, the things that come out of my mouth sometimes!

Book about buying and selling human remains

Taken from BoingBoing:

Wired News reviews a book called Body Brokers: Inside America's Underground Trade in Human Remains, which sounds fascinating:
In her book, Cheney travels from coast to coast, tracking the fates of the tens of thousands of dead bodies that end up in the "cadaver trade" each year. The corpses --including those donated for medical research and those left unclaimed at morgues --"are cut up into parts, not unlike chickens, and distributed through a complex network of suppliers, brokers and buyers," Cheney writes.
In Miami, she watches urological surgeons learn how to remove kidneys by poking into torsos in the Ocean Room of the Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort. In Gainesville, Florida, she takes a tour of a factory where crushed human bone is turned into precision-tooled orthopedic tools. And throughout, she finds plenty of people in the body-part business who really wish she'd go away.


"According to the write Jorge Luis Borges, the idea of the Zahir come from Islamic tradition and is thought to have arisen at some point in the eighteenth century. Zahir, in Arabic, means visible, present, incapable of going unnoticed. It is someone or something which, once we ahve come into contact with them or it, gradually occupies our every thought, until we can think of nothing else. This can be considered either a state of holiness or of madess."

Faubourg Saint-Peres
Encyclopedia of the Fantastic (1953)

Quite an intriguing theory or belief. I definitely want to learn more about this.

Rants and Raves on Craigslist Montreal

An excerpt from a great post:

The first try comes right back up. The first big sip, it goes down, but it burps right back into your mouth with acid and you shudder and already you start to forget that the rest of him will never be found. That it's all that's left of him, you forget. You forget that it's what he left you and it's all you've got... you forget how much you want it inside you.... every little drop of it. But only for a moment..

It's a monkey! :(|)

Rock out. \m/

Keep in mind that if you send an emoticon to someone who isn't using chat in Gmail, it may not display properly.



I love my life. I have amazing friends who entertain and make me happy. I also have been getting to know people I have know for years better and realize that I know some really amazing people. I'm happy I'm letting go of things and letting myself see people for who they really are.

There is nothing as fabulous as being bored in a club, going to a salon, having it opened specially for you and returning to the club with a fierce new 'do.

I've decided I am going to take burlesque classes. I feel a great need to learn, to experience, to grow as a person and I am thirstily drinking up knowledge.

Recent quotes of note:

"It takes two to mangle/"

"Why don't you write a book about what you think is right and wrong and I will present it to the world."

I feel a deep connection with the middle eastern beliefs whether being islamic or judaism, I feel a deeper connection that I want to explore further.

Saturday was a beautiful day spent with Sheeba. Met up at the library which we both adore and then spent several hours walking around observing sketch. Had a yummy lunch at MBCO and then Krispy Kremes, coffee at Segufredo... Just a great day spending time with someone I respect and love.

I also got to see Kirk's place for the first time. Amazingly gorgeous and Kirk is a sweetheart.

Spent time with him on Sunday. Miss him already. Hate the feeling a hole in your heart leaves.

Is that even a word?

Is there any limit to sketch in this city? I was walking around for hours today, observing the sketch in their natural habitat, & couldn't help but wonder, or more like think, so much sketch, so little time.

I think it was terrasse weather today. Besides, if you got drunk enough, you wouldn't notice the cold.

Is it shallow to not want to fuck someone based purely on which bar they go to?

Is it wrong to get pregnant by a 65-year old amputeed burn victim chinese guy?

Stupid Expression #864

"Off the hook!" As in, "That party was off the hook." WHAT THE FUCK is that supposed to mean exactly?! And what is a party like if it is "On the hook"? And what kind of hook is it anyway? And is the Captain involved in any way? I mean it just brings up so many questions, questions that will probably resonate through time.
