Decaffeinated Canine


 

It's 103 degrees outside, and I'm searching the net for a cup warmer. Time to switch from coffee to tea for the rest of the day.

August is approaching astronomically fast.

Time flies whether you're having fun or not.

I have definitely been having fun during my Birthday Month. My favorite, fantastic friends have treated me to lunches, diners, movies, and all kinds of gatherings. There's been Tiramisu, Bread Pudding, Ice Cream, and lots and lots of prezzies.

His Majesty, King Midas, is being a lazy, lazy dog, watching me write between his naps. He hasn't been eating well for about a week. I'd like to blame the heat, but he naps in front of the AC six hours a day. 

Ian is taking him to the puppy doctor tomorrow.

A Simple Way To Prevent Voter Fraud

Recently I saw an article implying that millions of absentee votes were received from deceased voters. Whether or not we take the shouts of voter fraud seriously, there is definitely a need for debate on methods of preventing future fraud. One of the simplest methods of preventing fraud could be fingerprinting. Why not require a fingerprint at the polls, on voter registration cards, and on absentee ballot forms? I'm not saying we should have to include fingerprints on the ballot. Everyone wants to protect their identities, and the 'sacred secrecy' of their vote. I'm saying we should require fingerprints as part of the identification process already required at the polls. I've never voted with an absentee ballot, but I am certain there must be some sort of identification form that must be filed along with the ballot. I'm certain right-wing extremists would scream it's unconstitutional to require fingerprints in order to cast a vote. Bullshit.

A Kick in the Balls

The day started off on a high note. The espresso machine is invigorating. Temps didn't reach 100 before noon. The dog didn't eat breakfast, but he seems feisty enough. And, I was celebrating writing 3,336 words last night.   Then my son tested positive for COVID. Again. His dentist's office routinely checks all their patients before seeing them. Ian is anti-covid vaccinations. Even after going through it once. I've tried to convince him to get a vaccination for my benefit. I'm an old fart. I'm high risk. If he gives me COVID and I die,   he'll feel guilty. There is a strong possibility he has no concept of the meaning of guilt. Which could be a good thing. It could mean he's never done anything bad enough—that I know about—to feel guilty. As his mother, I refuse to contemplate the alternative meaning of a guilt free mind. To test positive today, he was probably a carrier last week. I have seen him briefly during doggie drop offs and pickups th

Who is writing Nina Dobrev off The Vampire Diaries?

Rumor has it Nina Dobrev is leaving   The Vampire Diaries .   They've set up a scenario in which, the now human, Elena Gilbert ( Nina Dobrev ) could be killed off in the next episode, "I'm Thinking of You All the While", the Season 6 Finale, May 14, 2015.      SPOILER ALERT : Tonight's episode, "I'll Wed You in the Golden Summertime", ended with Elena on the floor, surrounded by shattered glass, looking dead, again.    Can the show survive without Elena Gilbert?  The entire story revolves around the love triangle between Stefan Salvatore ( Paul Wesley ), Elena, and Stefan's brother, Damon Salvatore ( Ian Somerhalder ). Damon's supernatural outburst of intense grief may hold the audience's interest for the first three or four episodes of Season 7. Interest could be piqued even longer if Damon is forced to hunt down Kai Parker ( Christopher Charles Wood ) before annihilating him in the most gruesome fashion al
