Actually, I took this picture
However, if you read the news this morning (http://www.9news.com/news/article/278707/71/71-shot-12-dead-in-horrific-theater-shooting), then you also know that me feeling kooky isn't too high up on the list of things that will ruin your week.
Sigh. I have nothing original to add to the discussion that these events inevitably incite, but I did spend today reminding myself that:
1) I'm healthy.
2) The people I love are healthy and live near me.
3) I'm a very lucky woman.
4) Also, I like lists. They are a nice solution for the tension between my laziness and my desire to write well on this blog.
In other news, I didn't spend all day today thinking only about myself! Yeeeeowww!
I went in for a shift at the Humane Society, and gave some pent up dogs some much-needed exercise.
Exhibit A: Toby!
Toby is only seven months old, with soft brown eyes and really shiny pretty cute floppy ears. Check him out: http://www.boulderhumane.org/animals/adoption/16610334
And Pinto (not the best name for a dog, I think): http://www.boulderhumane.org/animals/adoption/16755457
Pinto was a real sweetheart, and love.love.loved jumping in the cool creek (it's 100 degrees here today). So while I didn't cure cancer today, I did give two very sweet dogs a nice afternoon walk and cool-off. (Shrug) Better than staying home and thinking hateful thoughts about
your mom myself.
*For what are you grateful today?
