We've been told to use moist food for 1 meal/day with a male kitten.
We put out "Iams ProActive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care Dry Cat Food". We also feed two different wet foods morning and night, then there are late night snacks of some sort. Our vet says this is all good. Our male cat has a healthy urinary tract.
first community service date tomorrow. it's at some charity consignment place that i picked because it's only 4 miles from my place. we'll see how it goes! it's kinda weird, i'm required to do 10 hours per month but i need to do a total of 150 hours in a year. so in reality i need to do 12.5 hours per month. hopefully i'll bang out at least 6 tomorrow.
Is posting on DRC considered community service?
Only if you are talking about wet or dry cat food.
speaking of which, this urinary health food that costs more per pound than deli meat or expensive cheese is totally ignored by my cat. i put out both the wet and dry variations and she has not touched it all day. now i know when she gets hungry enough she will eat it but it has helped me make the decision that i will be going with the MUCH cheaper purina urinary health food instead. i went through all the ingredients today and they are not exactly the same but are still rather similar.
community service cancelled due to rain. the woman called me when i was halfway there. she was very nice about it and said she would give me a couple hours for the trouble, so that's nice. we will try again tomorrow.
Make sure you wear that reflective vest. And don't go chasing any trash into the highway
first community service in the books! i got there a half hour early at 10:30 and stayed until 1:45 and she marked it as 5 hours. plus, like she said she would a few days ago, she gave me 4 hours for the day that she cancelled when i was already halfway there. so i got 9 of my 10 monthly requirement done in one morning/afternoon. i will be going back tomorrow. it's mostly just moving stuff and sweeping up. turns out shes a nice woman and i'm happy to continue to work for her.
Perhaps you could show her the old "Publix Tumble" and log some extra "Community Service."
If ya get my drift.......
i was out for a nice bike ride yesterday when i came across an amazing sight. freaking anti-circumcision protesters! haha, right here in boca. they were at a somewhat big (not huge) intersection all wearing white with fake blood stains on their dicks. the women also had fake blood on their boobs...not sure how that was relevant. and some of them had crying baby masks. hahaha! there were a bunch of them too. on 3 corners of the intersection, probably around 50 people.
in principal i agree with their stance. however, whenever i see protesters my first thought is always to support whatever issue they are against. over in the stern forum we got into it a few weeks back:
Week Of 1/9 | Page 2 | Digital Radio Central
as you can see from that thread i'm more in line with the protesters point of view but i wasn't about to let that stop me. my overwhelming spitefulness took over. i didn't remember all the points from the thread off hand but i did recall scotch citing some study about fewer UTI's. so when i got to the light at the intersection i brought that up with one of them. we went back and forth for a minute or two, he was clearly getting grumpy with me, and by the time the light changed i left them by saying that when their kids were a few years older they will all be mortified that their parents dragged them to such a ridiculous event.
and that last part i do actually believe. there was a surprisingly good number of women and little children mixed in with the rest of the wackos.
and that's my sunday adventure in koopland!
Im glad to have helped contribute to your protest harassment.
What really irks me is that we've been taken-over by the 3rd Reich, the state of Florida will soon be under water, but these shitheads are focused on this stupid, meaningless personal issue. Sad.
Koop hasn't posted since this morning. I say he's back in jail.
my backpack is like 12 years old and starting to die. i could still get some mileage out of it but i'd like a new one. i've spent way too much time recently looking and various packs on amazon. i started out thinking i wanted a messenger bag but that didn't last and now i have narrowed it down to 2 bags.
Amazon.com: Kopack Slim Business Laptop Backpacks Anti thief Tear / water Resistant Travel Bag fits up to 15 15.6 Inch Macbook Computer Backpack in Gray: Computers & Accessories
Amazon.com: AmazonBasics Explorer Laptop Backpack - Fits Up To 15-Inch Laptops: Computers & Accessories
they are both under $40 so that's nice. every amazon basics item i have bought so far has been been a good buy so i have more confidence in the second one but i like the first one a bit more because it is lighter and smaller but still a laptop bag. a big factor in which one i get is how easy it will be to strap to my bike luggage rack.
i like this guy's videos and he reviewed them both.
so which one would you all get? or do you have another suggestion? thanks.
I have a suggestion, why not this one?
I have a JanSport backpack I bought for $20 in 1983 that is still in perfect shape.
I carry my iPad and laptop in a Johnson & Murphy leather briefcase.
mine is a jansport too. i kinda don't want to retire it cause my mom bought it for me so it has some sentimental value but the straps are starting to fall apart. i have stitched them back together in 2 places and duct taped a 3rd spot that is beyond my skills as a seamstress.
I don't know who's making Amazon's packs for them, but it looks like a better material.
I used to sell luggage back in college. Eastpack always had the best stuff. Heavy Cordura nylon, solid stitching, and reliable zippers. (The zippers might have had a lifetime warranty or something.)
If the golden girls pack isn't your thing, perhaps
Is that your go-to opening line at a bar?
