I just realized that I forgot Kita's birthday. It was on the 29th of last month. It would have been her 18th birthday. Dang. It's the first birthday that she's gone and I forgot about it. Boo points for me.
As Kita got into her later years, we started to really emphasize celebrating her birthday. I'd buy some of that Ice cream for dogs from the grocery, for her. Last year, I snuck adobo into her bowl. I realize that she is no longer here to give me that look and/or make tampo. I still feel really guilty about forgetting.
Received my first ever Loot Crate! I'm starting to really dig all of these services popping up, offering monthly shipments of mystery goods for reasonable prices. TBH, I put my order in after hearing that there was going to be a Princess Bride item included. I'm probably going to cancel the subscription (I signed up for the month-to-month plan) and wait on a theme that I like but I'm really happy with my first Loot Crate! (Still kicking myself for missing out on the Retro-theme from a few months ago.)
In a couple of hours, it'll be 2 months down. 1 year, 10 months to go. I was good this month! I didn't really think about dogs. Then, I saw those MGSV screenshots of Snake taking on the deserts of Afghanistan, dog by his side. DOH! Darn youuuuuuuuuu, Kojima!!! XD
It's a funny thing. (Waaay) Back when I entered middle school, I can recall a particular group of girls, from a higher grade. They all spoke in this exact same manner. It almost seemed like a prerequisite to join their group. I used to refer to it as the "8th Grade girl dialect". Of course, I'd have to change the name every year. How nostalgic!
Ahhhh! 15+ years of trying to get my mitts on this album has finally ended! It didn't come with the obi, but no big deal (those things are magnets for accidents). I used to listen to "War" constantly. It's nice to hear a slightly different version. "Carnival (Puck Version)" is worth the entire album. That song is part of my shower set, to this day. Still getting through the album, but I immediately jumped to those 2 songs.
So happy to finally have this! Yah, I know folks are moving away from CDs but I think I'll hold on to mine for a bit longer.
