The JoJo Report

JoJo went to HVHS (the vet) today. It was a relatively painless ordeal for all concerned. He’s been licking so much that now the inside of both back legs and the bottom of his belly are both largely bald. But–no scabs, no infection or redness. Just a whole lot of licking for no good reason. Also, tiny patches on the back of his front legs. I managed to get him in the carrier all by myself. This is kind of…

Well that’s hideous!

Livejournal has taken it upon themselves to supercede my carefully chosen colors and layout and replaced it with some bullshit that looks like Twitter merged with WordPress then incorporated Facebook’s advertising policy.

You know, the usual stuff. Trying to find another…

“New Year”

I still think it’s dumb to start a new year in the middle of winter. Where I am, there’s literally a foot of snow on the ground, and even seasoned Michiganders (NOT Michiganians though, because fuck them!) are losing their shit. It’s dangerous out there, folks. I predict that H and I will have a spirited argument when he goes back to work Wednesday night. He’ll insist that it’s perfectly safe to walk a mile to the bus stop. I’ll…
