Yes I have seen a British version of that show and I've learned a few training tips from it myself. The problem is that my dog (you're right, saying "pet" feels kinda weird) is not trainable compared to other breeds like german shepards or poodles.

I've seen the dog trainer manage to get a Siberian Husky back in line with the treats and isolation method... Treats work on Dikson but to some extent. He won't learn tricks and won't do something if he doesnt want to. It comes with the breed: Akitas are independent, stubborn and dominant especially towards other dogs. Otherwise he is cute and gentle like a cat at home and yes, we spoil him with lots of foods and hundreds of toys tongue

Yeah, people treat animals as inferior beings in order to feel better about themselves. They do not respect their dog's rights, thinking it is there to please them and they neglect training etc. Let me tell you something: if a dog obediently follows his master around without a leash it is actually doing so out of fear of being abandoned. And if someone is walking their dog without a leash it means:
a) they never trained their dog in loose leash-walking
b) they're too lazy to hold the leash when the dog pulls
c) they actually want their dog to run off, get run over, get killed by another dog
Of course they will hide behind the excuse that they wouldn't want themselves put on a leash. So when I tell them that they're putting their tiny dog's life in danger they laugh at me, because I was keeping Dikson from eating their stupid dog and it makes them feel invincible. See, they don't know that if MY dog kills their dog, I would not be responsible for the damage because I walk my dog on a leash.

Also, I have to mention that small dog breeds were engineered for the rich class of people in the 19th century and while they preserved their ancestral wolf instincts, their size sets them on a "prey" level that severely increases their aggression and violent side. Most dog bites on children are caused by poodles but we never get to hear about those, do we?

I kind of want to print a couple thousand stickers reminding people that all dogs should be held on a leash in every public places, and that the owner is fully responsible for the damage caused by the animal. But it would be perceived as a provocation towards the community and then Dikson would be teased by people all the time.

I fucking hate this country.

I wholeheartedly agree, because recently my favorite pet outdoor cat got attacked and killed by a pack of dogs that were just roaming about with no owners.

Hmm. What pissed me off today... let's see.

Turns out the $2000 "gaming" laptop my father bought me as a graduation present last year is notorious for overheating. Pretty much everything I try to play now crashes the computer. I could try to send it in or get a cooling fan, but the chance that either of those will do anything to help is slim. I'm so frustrated right now; the computer has these great specs and it can't handle them because the damn fan doesn't work right or w/e.

*Tears out hair and screams* Okay better now...a little.

Did you get a warranty? And why can't you send it in? Perhaps they can fix it, but then again it's always a pain because there's no guarantee...

I'm sorry =/




Let's see... today my internet has been on and off. It's making it very difficult to pursue my hobbies without a reliable connection. I've also had to place my sister's laptop under a system freakin scan to see if whatever's making it slow has to do with hardware and not software like we originally thought (which I severely doubt, but without any clear hints to the real problem, there's no way of knowing). Hopefully we (my brother and I) can fix the damn thing. We can't find the discs we need to reformat, and Vista is such a pain to set up.

Bleh.

I think the warranty ended recently. Pretty sure it's just over a year old now. /sigh
I might try to send it in and see if they can do anything, but I doubt that'll accomplish much. Will probably just have to buy a whole new comp closer to when TOR comes out haha.

Ah yeah, that's a good way to look at it. I'm hoping the requirements for the game won't be too high though... I don't really have a steady income at the moment so I don't think I can afford a new computer.

Yeah. I have a job, but rent is killer right now and I don't get financial aid again until next semester. Guess I just get to deal with it... lol. I can tell you one thing for sure though: I'm never getting another laptop. >_<

Sucks to hear about your laptop but if this makes you feel better TOR won't be requiring monster specs as it is an MMORPG, the graphics will be "stylish" instead of "realistic" which allows for small specs to enjoy the game the same as anyone else.

The issue with online gaming is the internet speed. And speaking of that Anecdote are you running your home network via a wireless router?

Yeah I'm sure the specs will be relatively calm in comparison to other games coming out around the same time as TOR, but if I can't even run SWG or other older games on my comp without it crashing, something's obviously way off lol. Best case scenario: HP can fix it. Worst case: I buy a new comp when the time comes. Either way, things'll be alright. I'll just be a few hundred dollars down the drain in one case...haha.

Anyways, enough about my problems. *Gets off soapbox and motions for next person in line*

Razz Thanks for listening though guys haha.

Well I went to the Lotus Festival with my mom today and there was this old lady asking for money. I have seen her all over the town and have seen many people give her money before(as have I). It just bugged me today for some reason. I don't know if it was because the Lotus Festival is supposed to about peace or because I have seen her peddling form people so many times. Any who that's what bugged me today. Other than that the festival was great very zen like.

I finally made some serious headway on a fanfic (non-Mando/Clone -- one of my other genres), and when I went to check on dictionary.com (because my dictionary book is missing) to confirm a spelling that my spell-checker said didn't exist, it crashed the entire system!!

I got a "not responding" message on the web browser, and I couldn't even Ctrl+Alt+Del to get the Task Manager up. I *THOUGHT* I saved everything up to that point -- only to find out after a hard reboot, I lost what I worked on for the last 20 minutes!!!!

Damn. I am so pissed right now!!! Mad I've only been behind 2 months on this chapter! Mad

We had a brutal job today, at the hottest part of the day too. My crew was on the verge of heat exhaustion when we finished up. Luckily everyone had water bottles, and we had a cooler of ice water on hand.

Oh, am I EVER PISSED!!!!! Mad

My company decided months ago that we needed to do a MANDATORY skeleton crew for the first two weeks of August. Because my co-worker needed a couple days off in the first week of August, I opted to take the second week off so that we have continual coverage in our department.

For the last couple weeks, I have been working to get my grandfather's summer house in PA so that my 2-year old son, my parents, and I could spend a week away from it all and take my son to places of interest for him. My grandfather didn't give me or my parents anything definite as to if we could have the house that week or not, but we kept on him to make sure he didn't forget us.

Today, I just found out that one of my aunts and my grandfather's brothers have taken the house the ONLY week I have off for vacation this year. Now, I have no idea what to do with this vacation week that I HAVE to take!! I had it in my mind that I was going to take my son to Steamtown so he could see the trains and a few other places that would be of interest to him. Now, it looks like we'll be sitting at home watching reruns of Handy Manny, The Wonder Pets, Yo Gabba Gabba, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and many, many more preschool shows.

The best thing about if I could have had the week at my grandfather's house was that it was FREE!! I wouldn't have to pay for a hotel with money I DON'T have. With my parents there, we could divide up the cost of food and such, and I wouldn't have been totally stuck. It really sucks to be the black sheep in the family. My aunt who got the house is my grandfather's favorite daughter, and my mom always got stiffed on stuff, too.

Looks like the one time I take a vacation in over 6 years is a bust. So much for trying plan out RELAXATION. Mad

PostSubject: Driver's Ed Nightmare   Thu Jul 16, 2009 7:01 pm

I'm a little more than peeved right now.

This summer I'm trying to get through my driver's ed lessons. As anybody who has done this in the past 20 years knows, driving schools are notoriously evil.

I scheduled all of my lessons in advance and wrote them down exactly on a piece of paper very neatly and confirmed them. Today I was scheduled for a lesson at noon for an hour.

I went to the pickup place and waited. Five minutes. Ten minutes. Thirty minutes. After 45 minutes (3/4ths of the scheduled driving time) I gave up and left after leaving a message at the school about the no-show. Never mind the fact that all of their phones decided to be unmanned an hour after lunchtime.

And I get a call back from them saying that I missed a driving lesson at 2:00 PM and that I now owed them a 40 buck fee for being a no-show.

2:00 pm. There is no way I could have misheard what the scheduling lady said. She said 12:00 PM. I repeated it all back to her over the phone and she confirmed all of it. How did my lesson time suddenly change without me knowing it?

And I have no proof for it besides a piece of paper they can easily claim as forged. What makes it worse is that I'm still trying to regain a bit of honor because I did something mildly stupid (Forgot to call and confirm my location after one of these driving lessons *once*) a while ago and my parents are still freaking out about it because I'm going off to college soon and any teeny thing will set them off into full aggro mode. A 40 buck fee is all that I need. It will all end up being my fault, somehow, because I have no proof that I wasn't lying about the time to them all along.

Except for the part about, 'know, not having any motive to lie to them about that. And that my father was in the room when I scheduled everything.

Oh boy. How badly do I want to grab a basilisk and raze Bay State Driving school now? Evil or Very Mad

Why am I up at 6 am? I awoke at 5 to the sound of some odd "clicking" noise coming from my kitchen. I know that older houses and apartments such as mine often make random clicks and thuds just from daily use. Today, however, the clicking would happen every few minutes, sometimes every few seconds. More than a little perturbed, I drowsily staggered into the kitchen and perched upon the counter, waiting bleary-eyed to discover the source of said "click."

It was then that I realized that it was coming from the fridge. Oh, poo.

Every so often, it would click "on", then click "off", with a sort of buzzing sound in between. I immediately set forth to check the interwebs. Several sources have now informed me that my refrigerator likely has a dying compressor, that continuously overheats and shuts off, only to start back up again a moment later in an attempt to cool the fridge without losing its own cool. A vicious cycle of annoying clickage has begun.

Reaching into the freezer, I noticed that the temperature was indeed about fridge level, and that if I wanted to save my food, I would have to take it elsewhere, as it was far too early to call maintenance. So, distraught at having to leave the comfort of my covers as I was, I rifled through my cabinets to find some plastic bags, shuffled into some flip-flops, and traveled down the road to my mother's house.

Long story short: fridge died, food gone to mom's, and I'm now hungry for breakfast with nothing to eat but dry cereal. >_>

I would've suggested take out... but it's too early for anything to be open.. sorry. Maybe if you pretend you're eating tortilla chips it'll feel/taste better?
