On Monday I start as the evening IT manager at this large law firm. They're part of the big suit against that major Department Store that I'm not allowed to name because I signed this agreement thing. The silliness of it all.
Tomorrow I'll be picking up the trash after the Bowl Game - 2 days of 40 people picking up the garbage from 60 thousand plus. Wonder if any of us will find something interesting in others trash? Maybe we'll get TV coverage. I'll get like $40 a day for this, which is important to get me through to my first paycheck and it's important as I have to take care of the little brown dog now.
I went to visit her and the lady at the shelter was all excited because the pup was all excited to see me. She said Ethel (yes, that's her name - the dog's I mean) did nothing but mope in the kennel until I showed up. She was listless. While I figure she was sad because the first 14 weeks of her life were spent doing pretty much what ever she felt like. A kennel must seem like a prison to such a dog. It is still flattering to be considered the inspiration for all the insane dog jumping around.
The vet said she was healthy. She agreed that I was probably right in my assumptions about the dog's past. So toting a 40 lb bag of Science Diet (not my favorite dog food but better than most) Ethel and I walked the 6 miles back to our home. She's a good dog.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
