Losing a pet is a difficult thing. My worst experience was with one of my pet rats, Augustus; the one where I chose to have him euthanized instead of him having a natural death. I was bawling on the floor of the veterinarian clinic (and I was 28 yrs old!). I recently adopted my first dog and he is so awesome. It's a lot of work not to worry about what might happen, so I try to enjoy the time we have together instead. Dogs are experts on human behaviour so I have no doubt that Riley understands you're in pain and wants to comfort you even if she isn't capable of the same level of grief. I'm sure Riley misses her pal too.

Thank you for the reminder. I don't own a car and rarely drive but I'm renting this weekend and it's good to be told not to drive like an asshole; sometimes assholish behaviour does rub off. I've only driven on LA expressways once (last year on vacation), but it was a pleasant experience compared to driving in Montreal most days.

Canada doesn't have Trader Joe's either though my American friends rave about it. I'm more for cookbooks that call for generic ingredients anyway; despise ones that use brand names or special products. Of course, these are all excuses as to why I don't really cook.

Watched it last night. Don't worry, you didn't suck. In fact, you did a great job. Maybe too good....Creepy.

Despite being a librarian, I really don't read a lot. I try but so few books manage to hold my attention to the end. I do have several books on the go at once, but does it count if they've been on the go since 1997? Currently reading Trying Neaira: the true story of a courtesan's scandalous life in ancient Greece.

I played 8 of those games. Totally forgot about M.U.L.E - loved it. Also glad to find link to all the Infocom games; I've always remembered Moonmist and Bureaucracy. The latter having haunted me all these years since neither my brother or I could ever finish it. I was starting to think I had made the memory of the game up!

I think role play is so important to share with children. I was shy growing up and I'm horrible at expressing myself creatively; one of the reasons I never played RPGs myself. Sure I read my brother's D&D manuals from start to end (loved them). I sat and watched friends play their games, but would never take part. As an adult, being creative, innovative and expressive is one of my greatest challenges. I'm just thankful I finally found dance which has given me opportunity to work on some of the same things as role-playing. Anyway, I enjoyed the article; wish I lived closer to my godkids so I could play with them.
