So this happened this morning.

Fritzi was peeking over the board we have by the bedroom door. Crixus was asleep, until he heard her jump into the room, but he just sat on the bed. Fritzi jumped on the bed and Crixus remained still. Fritzi whined at him, tried to get comfy but ended up leaving. Crixus was chill until she jumped off the bed.

I keep having this weird thing happen with my contact info.

Over the past couple months I've gotten several "confirmation emails" from several sites to one of my email accounts basically confirming that someone tried to set up an account using my email address.
I've panicked but then confirmed that the email address in question has two-factor authentication, so I guess people are just mistyping their own email, or just typing in something "good enough" to get through the form. I've disabled the accounts every time, and added this email so that people don't start using it for things like uber or facebook.

The past two days someone has been leaving voicemails in spanish but they're just saying numbers. Google search suggests it's a confirmation code for whatsapp. So someone's trying to set up whatsapp with the wrong phone number, repeatedly?

You reminded me I had a friend who's number used to belong to someone with family in south america. She ended up having to apend her voicemail message, in spanish, to basically say "Maria no longer has this number and does not live here, please update your information"

Well, the husband and I figured we didn't annoy you all nearly enough with our cat photos and stories so we adopted a dog.
This is Crixus. He's 2 months old, a rescue, and has some level of dachshund in his genes. He resembles a terrier or schnauzer and his legs are definitely longer than your typical dachshund.
In the photo he's in my lap. It's so nice to experience the joy of owning a dog, even though we're still trying to figure out how we keep him out of the cat's food bowls and logistical issues like that. Hooray!

While I love superheroes and I'm enjoying The Flash, I'm really getting tired of the superhero trope of "If I tell the people that I love that I'm a superhero it will put them in danger!" 

It makes absolutely no sense.

If I'm a superhero, not telling my husband doesn't protect him. It protects me. It protects me from rejection. It protects me from him calling the police to report me. It protects me from him accidentally letting my secret slip in front of the wrong person. It protects me from him going on social media and spilling the beans to the world should he ever decide he's done with our marriage.

If I'm a superhero, everyone I love is already in danger. Keeping them ignorant means if Doctor Octopus shows up at their house they'll have no idea why. And they won't be prepared for it. 

On the Flash, they recently wrestled with this stupid "dilemma" with Flash(Barry)'s relatively new girlfriend Patty. The only problem is we already went through this awhile ago with former love-interest Iris. And Iris herself, when she found out Barry is the Flash,  made the valid point that if she had known she could have been helpful! Keeping her in the dark put her at a disadvantage. But apparently we had to go through this again with both Barry and Iris forgetting how that all played out the last time. Instead of reminding him how stupid it was the first time around, Iris merely makes the point that he'll have to tell Patty eventually. Duh. 
What was even more moronic is that Patty gets kidnapped by a super villain because she's "precious to the Flash" and Patty doesn't put two and two together.

+Jason Dabrowski What's this you speak of? Such things never came up in Sister Mary Peanut Brittle's sex education class. I'm confused.

Having a puppy is about as close as I'll ever get to being a parent, and it is both a joy and a panic.

*You'll Regret Your Tattoo When You're Old!" or "Just think what it will look like when you're old!"

When you actually think about it, both of those arguments are complete nonsense. 

In my experience, old people have pretty much accepted their bodies. Some fight the aging process for awhile, but at a certain point they just seem to say "fuck it, this is who I am". 

And as for a young person imagining how their tattoos will look, sure, they might not like that, but considering what time and gravity do to your body, is a tattoo, even an ugly, faded one really that big of a deal at that point?

Yeah, I never think about how much they cost, just how much work goes into the really good ones.  I hope you're able to get the tattoos of your dreams, Jason.  I don't have any, because, well, they would be pointless on my skin... LOL!

Well, there's at least two rappers who sincerely think the earth is flat. Because the horizon is always a straight line from wherever they are standing. Seriously, they think NASA is some sort of covert organization keeping the lie going. 

But that leaves open a bunch of questions such as where's the edge? What shape is this flat earth? Square? Rectangle? Circle? 
Why doesn't all the water from the oceans fly off into space? Why has no one ever actually seen the edge? What exactly are our satellite photos then? We have video of the earth as spacecraft is taking off, so how'd they fake that?

I don't believe the earth is flat, just to clarify, I just saw a ridiculous video about it recently

That door has seen some serious shit go down man. Before that, it was just mildly concerned.

So, I'm looking through google play scrounging for free music and I've noticed something. What's with all the people who lose their shit over swearing? So many people leaving album reviews like "why do you have to swear(so much)?" or "what's with the swearing?" or "this song would be great except for the bad words"

Who are these people? What planet are they from?

I'm nearly 40 years old and pretty much since high school, I don't think I've gone an entire 24 hour period without hearing someone use an expletive. In a movie, on a song, from myself, a family member, a coworker. I can't fathom how people can live in our modern world and still be sensitive to that.

Now, just to be clear, excessive swearing gets on my nerves. Like those folks who can't string two words together without an expletive. "Bitch, I fuckin' went to the fucking store to fuckin pick up some fuckin eggs and shit for a motherfuckin birthday fuckin cake for my motherfuckin aunt." People who aren't even mad but talk as though they are permanently pissed off about everything. But I think it annoys me for the same reason this kinda thing annoys me "So, like, I like totally, like went like to like the store? Or whatever. Like for some eggs or whatever? Like so, like I could like make like a cake or something? Like for my aunt?" It just takes forever for someone to get to the point.

But I seriously don't understand the question "why do they have to swear?" I almost want to answer it flippantly with "They're adults, so they use adult language" It's like these people don't get that for most of us we do not consciously choose to swear, it's more like we have to consciously choose NOT to swear. Swearing is just part of our speech pattern and it's usually for emphasis or humor.

I remember being younger and hearing that swearing wasn't nice, it was "adult language" that it was low class and or bad for you or whatever----but then I grew up, and like a lot of other things I was told as a child, I found out it wasn't true. Classy people swear. Successful people swear. Mature, serious people swear. Highly intelligent and well-educated people DEFINITELY swear. Bosses and teachers swear. Most people seem to swear, at least from time to time. They might avoid doing so around children, or on national tv, or in front of elderly relatives or during a work meeting, but it's absolutely a part of common language and expression.

I'm against this.

Women shave off much of their body hair because razor manufacturers in the early 1900s wanted to sell more razors. Prior to that it was common for women not to shave a damn thing. All was well.

A good deal of the beauty and personal care industry is about telling us our bodies are ugly, smelly, and or gross, and enforcing upon us this notion that if we haven't been purified we're just disease-covered savages.
Too many products are all about taking a mild or innocuous situation and blowing it out of proportion to motivate sales of otherwise unnecessary products.

If you've showered in the past 24 hours you're fine. If you've just finished a workout or hours of physical labor, you need a shower, not an overpriced wet wipe.

Exactly. 
Sure things get sweaty, or things stick together in uncomfortable ways, but so what? A little covert adjustment tends to address things, or just forgetting about it. 
They act like this is a serious issue men have been waiting for some genius to solve. No, not really.

Introduction
I DO actually use the chat features of gmail/google+.  So if you circle me, and I circle you back, feel free to IM me. I don't bite. 

I have a less common take on social networking.  I'm not interested in becoming famous for my Google+ posts, nor do I care to spread my "influence" far and wide.

Reasons I won't be circling you back:

-You're using an obviously fictitious name. While Google+ no longer requires real names, I prefer them. I find there's less trolling and drama when people don't get to hide behind a fake name. 

-You're posting NSFW content publicly. I am often in places where others can see my screen, including work, and I don't want to have explain genitals to coworkers, bosses, or angry parents. Part of my job involves social media.  

-You have no posts visible to me or no posts and no pictures. How am I to get a sense of who you are and what you're about if you don't have any posts? 

-You've got hundreds or thousands of people circled.  I value quality over quantity. I sincerely doubt you have the time to keep up with posts from hundreds/thousands of people, which means it's also unlikely that you will have the time to get to know me in any significant way. There's nothing wrong with circling hundreds of people, that's just not how I network.


-You haven't posted anything I can see in several weeks/months.
