Out of the Blue

Happy New Year! Here's to 2013 being different from the years preceding it in more than just trivial ways. We had a quiet New Year's Eve here in the BlueTower, which was great. This turned out to be by choice, as I solved the problem of our car refusing to start. I expressed concern that we had a bigger issue than a dead battery since the engine cut out after turning on the lights following a jumpstart, but that may just have been due to how far gone the battery was, as the terminals were caked with corrosion. A little cleanup and a new battery have set things right for the moment, though if there is some sort of alternator issue or minor drain at work, it may take a while for the new battery to fail, so we shall see. I hope everything worked out as conveniently for all of you as well, and that everyone had a safe and happy celebration.

My dog is having a hard time these past few days. Its only her second New Years and the kids in the neighbourhood have turned the the whole place into a goddamn warzone.

On top of dealing with a dog who refuses to go out for a walk I woke up this morning to find her sick and shaking with half the flat covered in vomit and diarrhea, naturally on my first day of work.

Fucking shit this New Year got of on a really great start! Yay!

She may have made herself sick with worry over the fireworks, but I'd take her to the vet just to be sure. Hope she's okay, man.

Dog could have sustained severe physical injury, best off to the vet with you.

That German fighter pilot story was one of the best WW2 stories I have ever read. Awesome!

It's apparently a book and I plan to grab it.


I always find these stories in war odd. How people can be trying to murder each other 1 minute and so civilized to each other the next. It's actually very depressing that we can oscillate so wildly and so quickly.
