And aside from not liking children a lot, I don't think I like romance either. A friend of mine suggested that I'd watch a tv show called The Shannara chronicles and I couldn't stop being annoyed by the possible love-pairs in there. That and a cliche fantasy plot.
I read Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. What a horrible play gonk The funny thing was that I asked my dad about it and he's actually seen it. It must have left an impression too, because he could remember what it was about. (yes it's THAT horrible)
Wow what an irresponsible mother. The mother probably thinks that the toddler was irresponsible rofl
I'm not really a fan of children or young animals for that matter. I really can't wait until the dog is finally grown up. It was the same with the cats (thankfully they grow up fast). I was glad when the kitten-stage was over.
The white cat is pretty confident around the dog, but the black cat will still growl at him. So this morning I picked him up and put him outside when he started that behavior. Then the cat immediately turned around, stood on his hind legs and looked through the window xD He had to keep an eye on the dog situation.
The dog is still very childlike and playful. I don't like it, I don't think the cats like it either. But my parents seem to enjoy it a lot.
Yesterdayevening I watched a wildlife documentary about a female wolf. The creators followed her throughout her life, only to see her get shot at the end. stare Reason: the law had been changed, so wolves could be shot right outside Yellowstone park. Of course those wolves will cross the borders they're not aware of. What stupidity! So that was an abrupt ending to the story. Such a waste.
I also watched some more of Christopher's Rimworld. One of the characters went berserk and the others killed her rofl It was kind of funny.
I decided to walk all the way to the lake today. It's a popular spot for dogwalkers. I avoided it so far because there's usually a lot of people and a lot of dogs. Today as well.
Of course there had to be a dog walking service that arrived exactly the moment I did. Imagine: a swarm of dogs popping out of that van. With two women. Fortunately Zeno didn't seem interested in either the dogs or the women accompanying them. I walked straight through the swarm with him (some wanted to sniff him, but they didn't approach him head-on, so he just kept on walking, he only turned around once - sniff and was done) and since he wasn't interested in the dogs or the women, they didn't pose a walking problem at all. mrgreen I'm proud.
Unfortunately he did drink a lot when we returned home - and puked out all his food. I guess I'll have to wait with feeding him next time he drinks a whole lake after visiting a lake.
Goodness gracious.. it's quite difficult to be stuck with a 'I love everybody and you too' type of dog. But I'm determined to take on the challenge - as a matter of fact I'm forcing myself to walk by as many people with dogs as possible, so I can teach him over and over again that he should leave them alone. Dogs are creatures of habit, so he should learn it after plenty of repetitions. I had him off leash today and he actually didn't try to jump on (dog)people at all. It might not be as bad as I think it is.
Well at least your immune system managed to hang it until AFTER the Game City - no matter how disappointing it turned out to be. You could have missed it, couldn't you?
I also feel like I could come down with an illness some day soon. The weather is still relatively stable, but the evenings are quite chilly already so I could easily catch a cold.
I wrapped up The Phantom of the Opera. And at the beginning (first half of the book) we weren't allowed to have any sympathy for the Opera Ghost. But at the second half of the book the author seemed to force the reader into growing some sympathy for him. 'Poor unhappy Erik'. We all had to feel sorry for him. It's interesting that the author created such a huge shift. But I guess this was only possible because there was a relatively happy ending to the story. No not for the ghost, but he did basically do something that's considered 'good'. He allowed Christine and babyface Raoul to be together. I must say I was rather surprised that Erik didn't seem to mind that Christine lost the golden ring he'd given to her. Sure he was a psychopath, but he never hurt her and he was a man of his word.
The dog trainer had spoken to the owner of the Turkish rescue dog and he said it was still not going well. The dog is extremely fearful of people and he said the owner is rather inconsistent, so he doesn't expect things will get better any time soon. That's unfortunate. It doesn't look like we'll be seeing them at the training. Ever.
