Life, Politics and Business

Life

I took Norway to the dog park for the first time yesterday and he had a blast running around with other dogs... most of them were barely chest high to him, but he was relatively gentle and only bowled them over a little, and that only if they were enthusiastically playing back. Then we went to the self-serve dogwash and he very miserably got washed. He didn't mind the actual washing, and he loves to be towel-dried, but getting into the tub? Oh, so very not happy about that. Me and one of the groomers had to lift him (squirming) into it, and it was everything we could do. One of the muscles in my back is very unhappy about it. He is very soft and clean and I think next time I will just use the non-tub option. They warned me I would get very wet if he wasn't in the tub, but honestly, I was completely soaked to the skin when finished, so I don't know how I could get wetter. I was done in about 20 minutes - next time I will use some more shampoo. I was worried about getting him properly rinsed and dried in time, so I didn't use much. (After 30 minutes, the price goes from $10 flat to $2/minute.)

I got my geek patches! I tacked them on yesterday - my fingers gave out before I got it fully sewed down (Carrhart material is BEEFY), but my coat is much more geek-tastic. The Cyberdyne logo doesn't *quite* cover the logo that was there, but it leaves just one line of text: Management & Design, which works just FINE for me.

Politics

And that is my last word on politics for a good long while.

Business-y stuff

I thought I had some to post when I started this entry... but I guess not. I think I ran out of blogging steam with my political rant.
