Now that I have a grounding in Japanese, I have found the wounderful world of Jrock and Jpop. Some of the happiest music ever. Enjoying this little tangent of mine.
And I get to go and see David Bowie for a second time on April 9th. Hooray!

This may have been a topic before (If so I'm sorry).
I just started playing WOW about 3 days ago, but my god how fantastic it is. Probably the most addictive thing I have ever seen!
Any of you guys playing? Maybe you can give me some hints. I'm a rogue because it allows me to run around and bash thing while I don't know how to use my skills, but it looks like I'll be getting some cool traits as I get stronger. Not to mention the looting.
Although I'm not sure that I understand how they split up the lands. All of a sudden you go from fighting level 10 monsters to level 14 - 15?

So I've always been an advocate of animal rights, but I had no Idea how bad of a problem animal ownership was. With my new found knowledge gained by working with a local rescue group for the last year I find myself even more bitter towards the general population. I will never understand people who find pets to be the latest and greatest toy or gimmick (this usually leads to them having children to keep their attention and as a slightly more interactive toy which leads to my next problem). I will never in a million years understand people who think pets are disposable.
I think I'll start venting with the things that disgust me the most.
Abused and hurt animals: I'm sure it pains almost everyone to see a hurt animal; but you'd also be surprised how many people don't report it. Just a month ago I heard of a dog that had come in with a home amputated back leg. amputated by an axe or the like (His leg was properly re-amputated and treated. Luckily the infection wasn't to bad, and he has gone on to find a wonderful forever home.) First I wanted to severely hurt whoever had done this, but went on to wonder how nobody had noticed this, It wasn't until he was noticed tied outside a shopping center for 9 hours that he was reported to the spca. It just doesn't make sense to me. I think people have to understand that reporting the abuse of an animal does not condemn them to death. I've made it one of my personal goals to inform people that not all shelters are kill shelters and that you can report an abused animal to any local no kill shelter who will convince them to surrender the pet. All it takes is one little google search for a local rescue group.
Why do people simply leave their dogs by the side of the road? Do they not have a spare 30 minutes a day to try and find it a new good home. There are plenty of great people out there looking for pets; it's really not that hard to do. Or surrender your pet. Strays with no history are much harder to find new homes for then pets who do and therefor have a much higher euthanization rate. The other horrible part of this is that many of these strays are not spayed or neutered. I don't care if you plan on keeping the pet inside for it's whole life. You should still spay or neuter just in case. There are enough homeless animals as it is let alone adding in the huge amount of puppies and kittens surrendered, boxes of puppies abandoned, and pregnant pets who come in. Some of whom I'm sure the shelter will see again. Puppies unfortunately are most likely to go to homes for all the wrong reason, and come back without proper socialization or any training then a 9 month or older dog.
People who surrender their pets for crappy reasons:
"I just had a child and I'm afraid they won't get along with my child/I won't have enough time for the pet"
My wishful answer: As above mentioned. Won't you look at the new more interactive toy. 4 year old animal you say? Yup sounds like it was about time to upgrade. Won't have time, well hopefully you'll find a good daycare for child instead of dropping him/her off at child services. But judging by the fact that you had about 9 months to find a new home for your pet or train and socialize your pet with children to take care of your fears and did neither, you'll probably drop them off at the first cruddy daycare you see an ad for without bothering to do a back check."
"My dog has a behavior problem like aggression or barking or marking"
My wishful answer: Wait Wait Wait . Hold on, I so have to call someone about this. What an unheard of problem. You know, because this is such a rare problem I'm sure that there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. Infact I'm almost positive I've never seen a single book on any of these subjects. You know you should also call a dog trainer about this just to warn them incase they see it in another dog. While were at it, did you know that a personal trainer is about $175 for 5 sessions. thats probably a quarter of what you paid for your dog. Granted had you picked up a book to learn about dog training at any point during your puppies life you probably wouldn't be looking at any of these problems.
"I'm moving and they don't allow pets at my new place"
My wishful answer: And your moving there because??? Part of owning a pet is finding a place for both of you to live. It's your responsibility. Or was it because you got a new sofa and he didn't match the decor anymore? Because thats much more acceptable.
"I just got this new dog a week ago and he doesn't get along with my cat"
My wishful answer: Okay so basically This one explains it's self. If she couldn't even cope with introducing two animals to each other then it was basically better she didn't have one. One week! Yup only takes me a week to make best friends with someone.
(*I would of course never say this to anyone because it promotes them to either just abandon it instead of surrendering the pet, or killing them. Instead we try and get as much background info out of them while trying to shut them up about their asinine problems. And the animal always comes first. People and their excuses just get to be so much)
People who take out adds saying "free to good home":
You would think that people have the commonsense to realize the flaw in this. The danger that is involved for the pet. You are welcoming everyone and anyone to come get your animal. Theres a reason why shelters screen applicants, granted the really bad guys don't usually come to shelters to get their pets because then they would have to pay $150 every time they did and shelters keep track of who they have adopted to. Free is so much cheaper.
And this is without me getting into the petty stuff like puppy mills and the such. God I hate people sometimes

What I'm talking about.
You think you've seen rioting, until you've seen Edmonton win a hockey game. I only hit our party strip for about an hour because it became to crazy. The article doesnt even do it justice. I remember seeing fires lit in phone booths, and people climbing up the Chapters building.
Its funny how fun things can seem when your drunk and part of them, and then how pointless and bad they seem the next day.
Anyways Hooray for the Oilers, damn straight we're the best Team and craziets fans.
I'll try and post some after game pics. of the Cup games.

I never realised you can buy clothes and stuff off of Amazon. One of my favourite online shops is conected to amazon. Huzzah being able to buy things through your browser.
Stupid working 7 days a week on top of school. Oh how I can't wait for the day that I get to go shopping in a real store. In the mean times its good to know you can buy regular stuff off amazon, bit sad I didn't know before.
