 Comments: when your dogs are playing, they will run around and chase and nip at each other for a while, and then suddenly stop, and face each other in a kind of comic stand-off? And one will sit there with it's front legs splayed out in front and its but way up in the air, and just bark?

I just love it when they do that.

Anyway, if you didn't know about that, do you know how in Antarctica, a plane arrives only twice a year with their supplies and replacement crew, and in between planes there are no colds or flu cases anywhere at the base? But right after the plane arrives, everyone gets terribly sick because they are suddenly assaulted with all those germs they were isolated from for six months? Whereas the rest of the world has new germs circulating at a constant rate, rather than in waves? Right?

So anyway, I just realized that two and a half weeks ago, all that circulation of germs suddenly halted, and all the cold and flu viruses were relatively isolated for a few days, disruptig the normal circulation of bugs. Then, suddenly, travel resumed in the nation (and the rest of the world, though it hadn't been as fully halted) and we were hit with the same shock that they get in Antarctica when the new plane arrives with fresh Hustlers and AA batteries.

See? See?

Of course, if I really were smart, I'd have at least the first clue of how to profit from being so clever.

Damn it, bin Laden, now it's personal.

Then again, maybe it was just that night where, after cleaning up each other's drunken vomit, we broke into the motel pool at 3 am, and then slept eight to a room without drying off.

But enough about me. I advise you to drop out of school immediately. Dormitories and unclean classrooms are rife with diseases of all descriptions, to be avoided at all costs.

I haven't gone near such a place as a dorm in years. I have a proper apartment now, guarded by a very good dog, as well as a chihuahua, and also one pretty good cat in addition to Hector, a terrible cat. And a lot of plants, which are supposed to be healthy for you.

But I do blow off doing school work all the time, so that's sort of dorm-like.

I do, I do, I do

I thought the purpose of The University was to allow young people in their sexual prime to get plastered and then loiter in dormitories in hopes of obtaining a spouse.

Perhaps you loiter, plastered, in the dormitories, but also maintain a secluded domecile so as to have a quieter place in which to ascertain the degree of sexual compatibility with any potential spouse?

You refer to a chihuahua as a creature which can not be described as a "dog," which is an indicator of sanity, but I find it baffling that an apparently sane person would risk life and limb in filthy, disease-ridden classrooms when a potential spouse can be sought in clean, healthy taverns throughout the free world.

Note that I assume you are in search of a spouse primarily because you have admitted to resorting to the extreme measure of horticulture, which you have presumeably undertaken only after pushing the previous and only marginally less desperate measure of small mammal husbandry to its socially tolerable limit of four beasts, maximum.

But enough about you. My beast, feline, is of the very stupid but affectionate variety, which can make for a convenient emotional surrogate when there is no potential spouse available. There is a plant in the kitchen, but I consider it an adversary.

And far past my sexual prime. For me it's all just puttering aound my little nest, fussing with my plants and doting on the toy dog, and waiting to die.

You need to artifically attach yourself to a professional sports team so that when they accomplish something you can experience happiness through them. Works for me anyway.

Good call about the sickness stuff. I got sick from being in St. Louis last weekend.
