It looks like we have a new puppy. Or maybe she's not really a puppy--maybe jack russell terriers are permanently psychotic. It's hard to say. Anyway, sweet as she is, I'm not all that excited about her arrival, but she's my brothers and I guess he has the right to love an animal for his own if he wants to. Her name is Miley and when you let her run, it's honestly as though you've pushed "fast forward" on her legs. It's crazy to watch, and crazier to try to keep up. She does make me laugh, but she can be pretty exasperating. And our cat, Faith, is of course not a big fan.

Actually, I've just Wikipedia'd the name (not being in the practice of discussing dog breeds, I wasn't sure about the capitalization), and it turns out that she's actually just a Russell Terrier, and that Jack Russell aficionados can get a little uppity about the difference. Pardon me. My mistake.

I take issue with the fact that people who post job ads on Craigslist do not, generally speaking, respond to applicants. Even when they specifically state that they will "respond promptly" to applicants. I mean, come on, people! Do you want to hire someone or not? If the position has been filled, it isn't that hard to let me know. Or to simply remove the ad.

I, like many people (and, I suppose, unlike many others), think that fall is pretty great. However, I think that I would think everything was pretty greater if I had a damn full-time job. And my own freaking car back. I'm just saying.

"I do have a test today; that wasn't bullshit. It's on European Socialism. I mean really, what's the point? I'm not European, I don't plan on being European, so who gives a crap if they're socialist? They could be fascist anarchists for all I care. It still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car.
It's not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter--isms, in my opinion, are not good. A person should not believe in an ism--he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' A good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus... I'd still have to bum rides off of people."
I was going to write who said this, but then again, if you don't know already, I probably don't want to talk to you.*

Thanks to my lack of money and dependable transportation, and also the fact that one of my favorite people lives 2.5 hours away and another lives across the country in L.A. at the moment, there is next to nothing going on in my life right now. My apologies for my utter lack of anything interesting to say.

*That's a total lie. Anyway, Ferris Bueller said it.
