Emergency Vet Visit

I got back last night... made it home with my luggage and everything.

I had to wait until 4pm today to pick up Kaylee...

I got a call 5 minutes before 4pm, while I was getting my stuff together, from the place that was boarding Kaylee. Apparently, while out in the play yard, an 8 month old black Lab attacked her. It happened 10 minutes before pick-up time. He was calling to tell me he was going to bring her to the vet because she needed stitches. I rushed right over to pick her up, but we had to wait an hour and a half before the vet could make it in to the clinic.

She has a (fang) puncture mark on her right should and a big gash on her left shoulder. He gave her several shots to kill the pain and semi-knock her out. She got 3 staples and 7 stitches. She's pretty out of it and I'm going to leave her sleeping in her kennel for the night.

Poor baby.

Very bad situation. Dreading the vet bill...

31st Birthday Party

I've just finished saying goodbye to the last guests and cleaning up. A total of 10 people (plus Sheba, Kaylee, and myself) - that's a lot to fit in my little apartment, but I did it!

My work friends and my trivia friends met and all was well. We even played Trivial Pursuit - 90's Edition for a while.

I'd say it was definitely one of my best parties.

I'm very happy and very tired.

Time for bed.

Oh yeah... I was sung to in 4 different languages (English, French, Spanish and Hebrew).

New Clash

The first trailer for the new Clash of the Titans movie. Looks to be a bit different from the first, at least as far as special effects!

Still waiting to hear about Aya and Baby.

Last I heard was from her - she gave up after 12 hours of pain and asked for an epidural...

That was 4:30pm Central...
Baby inc! woke up 2 find a voicemail from Aya's mom saying "we're having a baby today!"

It's moments like these...

We've just finished up the first quarter (year number two) and I've got 2 good student quotes to share. They were several weeks apart, but both came from the same class period (different students).

Quote 1

Student: "What is Bluetooth?"

Me to class: "Does anyone know what Bluetooth is?"

Student: "It sounds like bad dental work."

Quote 2

Student 1: "Hey Ben, are you afraid of heights?"

Ben: "No... Why?"

Student 2: "Because your fly is."
