Apparently I have developed a knack for observing lesser-known holidays that occur at the end of the third week of the month. For example, in September, I unwittingly planted trees in honor of the autumnal equinox.

So Friday, I unwittingly celebrated Adopt a Dog Day. I discovered this (the holiday) on Friday when Absent and I both took the day off work after throwing rather stressful but in the end successful open houses for our respective employers.

The story of the dog adoption will be posted shortly, but I'm unsure when. Because there's a lot that led up to it. And then I have to post about training the dog. Oh, and I need to post about how I learned not to insert your hand in the mouth of a dog engaged in a fight with another dog.

And I may be sporadic in posting for the time being, seeing as how I finally have my computer on wireless, but it is agonizingly slow in its connection. (Not to mention the fact that it really hates Blogger and won't load the stupid posting page.)

You? Sporadic in posting? Perish the thought.

I've been doing this too. Unwittingly picked all the apples on Johnny Appleseed Day, for instace.

What happens is, I live my life, then visit Absent and discover I've been celebratory.

It's certainly not happening on purpose.

I'm much too boring.

ps: when's the alphabet coming back?

Th., don't forget the dictionaries on Dictionary Day.

I think that you both are just "en rapport" with the soul of the Almanac.

Edgy, I am worried about you trying to break up dog fights with your bare hands. My dad just emailed me an article about dogs and hands that happened in my parent's neighborhood. My mom drove the dead dog to the vet. "A Keizer woman and her 5-year-old Pekingese suffered injuries Friday evening when a neighbor's dog attacked them, police said. The woman said that on Saturday, her dog died."

Please protect your hands. They are nice hands. You won't be able to feed your cute dog if you don't have hands. And she would starve :( And your blogging would suffer. So we, your readers, would suffer... one might say we would spiritually starve without your blog. You might have to learn to blog with your nose.

I wish I had a dog. It would make writing this story much easier.

I despise dogs and everything they represent (which is mostly dogs).
