So night one with the new fangled strange-as-hell-I-can't-wait-to-show-you-i
I woke up with the alarm, unhooked my mouth (the thing is about the side of a small strawberry but it feels like a jeep in my mouth) and ... passed right back out. Woke up again at 8:16... gah!
It's a sunny and truly beautiful day... If you listen... you can hear fall sneaking around behind stuff. It is one of the real gifts to putting up with life here in the land of mother natures crack head dreams... the way fall jumps out and repaints the universe in new colours. Those days will be here soon. :D

Yeah.... so a peek at corto's morning routine*
Get to work... open up laptop and read company email... send notes and schedule the day.
Open up my dev pc and read my gmail email...
Start up the corto "office web cam"
Load up my friends page... click to open "back 35 posts" in a new window... click again (now I'm back about 70) and I should hit my "night night" post. That's the road marker. Scan over pages responding to short posts that draw my attention, and click to "open in new window" any longer posts I want to dive into. String all those posts together via cut and paste into ms word and print them...
Take the print out to the lunch room (big bay windows) and pour a fresh coffee. I'll read a few minutes worth... then get back to work with whatever is pressing.
Open up my sema lj client and press "cntl - shift - c" and the morning post templates paints it way across the screen...
Fill out my post and think about what to say ... unless I was incensed with something to say on the drive to work.
click post... :D
As you can see... I was not much incensed en route to work today.
dogs!!! There's a lot of shit going on in the news about dogs... pit bulls and other breeds that tend to grab headlines by consuming humans or ... parts of humans.
Imagine the amount of time and money that will be spent in courtrooms arguing about whether or not "Rex" is actually a pit bull (example) if they made Pit Bulls illegal. The language of such a law would have to be very seriously strict... and would end up creating loop holes that ultimately do nothing for the fact that little Beckie got her face chewed off by Rex.
In Canada, dog owners are not held accountable in the way that they are in the United States. In the US a dog owner is actually charged with Second Degree Homicide or some shit if their dog kills you.
Either way... accountable or not... this still does nothing for Beckie.
People are soooo fucking stupid... Dog owners are their own worst enemas. Train your fucking pet for chirst sake... and if it looks like it has a tendency to be aggressive ... kill the fucking thing. It's a dog!!! I mean... I'm a dog and cat lover... absolutely LOVE pets... awful allergies but that's beside the point. But my love of dogs and cats changes nothing from the notion that it is UNFORGIVABLE for a dog owner to let their 100 lb bag of furry muscle and teeth be untrained, unrestrained, and angry.
Society shouldn't have to make goofy, resource wasting laws to control dog issues... Dog owners should be self managing. And Guess What... YOU SUCK AT IT. The result of all this will be new unenforceable laws... increased policing costs, stain on the already overburdened court system and why is all that? Back to the "you suck at it" comment!!!
Of the ten dogs I can name that are owned by different friends or people in my neighbourhood... I can only think of two that actually sent their dog to dog school. A big honking dog looped out onto the soccer field in the middle of one of Georges tourney matches two weeks ago... his "master" had him off his leash... in a park with several hundred 7 and 8 year old kids... and the big fat bastard could barely move his ass to catch his dog as it ran up to various moms sitting with toddlers at the side of the field... The guy is yelling "Come Rex" or something ... and then "Grab him will ya..." Yeah... right.
Don't get me wrong... I do honestly love dogs... I've just no patience with idiot dog owners. None.
Ok... off to face the day... see ya :D
*ack... talking about myself in the third person... clear sign of pending dependence on mood stabilizing medications... must resist...
