Ringtones and bad news

I have to admit, while I appreciate the sentiment, I don't do this. So far, my top ringtones (in order of listener appreciation) are:

  1. Muppet Show Theme
  2. "Who Are You"/CSI Theme
  3. Law and Order Theme

The last two are obviously job related.

But here's a hint for those still in law school: if you have a sufficiently clever/interesting ringtone, you may avoid getting into trouble when your phone rings in class.

And now the bad news:

CBC Reports: Conservative lead widens, poll suggests

What the hell, people? Is everyone suddenly swayed by those noxious sweater-vest ads? Are we seriously considering voting in a party and leader that has spent the last two terms blithely trampling on the environment and human rights? Are we still going to have our Bush even after the US has gotten rid of theirs? Harper is literally the most hypocritical politician I have ever been exposed to, and no one else seems to mind? Gaah.

Updates?

So, it's been a month since I started articling (insert shocked expletive here) and while I love it, it's cut into my other activities. Like eating, and sleeping, and oh yes, blogging. Yesterday I had an unscheduled, migraine-induced 24-hour sleep-a-thon.

But it's not all bad news. I really do enjoy it, except when I'm verging on hysterical screaming fits at the next person who asks me to do something. I've attended hearings, visited prison, written first drafts of important documents, and filed things in court. I'm doing important work, and I'm learning, and I like the people I work with.

But I will try to get on here more often, and Law Is Cool too. Promise.

Sarah's Home for Old Pets

Is there such a thing as palliative care for cats?

I ask because it seems the shelters and Humane Society are always full of older cats. And I would have no problem adopting them, except I wouldn't be able to afford big vet bills. But surely living out the last four or five years with a loving owner and being put down when it got sick is a better fate than living in a cage and being put down NOW because no one adopts it?

Pets: they're all furry cuteness and ethical dilemmas.

Explain this to me II:Yes, another puppy

This one has been there for a few days. What is wrong with people? I can understand being wary of adopting dogs who are behaviourally difficult (by breed or individual temperament) so while I feel bad about it, I get why all the Staffordshires and bulldog mixes and whatall rarely get adopted. But these are young, small dogs. City dogs. APARTMENT dogs, even. It boggles the mind.

Explain this to me

How  is this dog still not adopted? In fact, how was she there long enough to make it up on the website?
