What a beautiful dog.  
Yesterday after I was picked up from Snoopy's party Da and I went to get a tree. There was the most amazing dog when we went to get it. She was a German Shepard with the deepest brown eyes I'd ever seen. She seemed pretty intrigued by me, and kept wandering over. I didn't get out of the car, though. At one point when she was looking straight into my eyes and took a step toward the open door...and then Da stepped on her paw. She yelled and wandered away, dignity cracked. She turned around soon enough and trotted over to get one last look at me. Da took that as her coming to see him, though, and bent down to pet her. She hadn't seemed to have forgiven him, though, and padded off. I didn't see her again. That sure was one beautiful dog.

Now my living room smells like pine, and it's wonderful. I've been doing a lot of reading. I read 8th Day, which was the present I got for Snoopy, heh heh. I really liked it. I'll give it to her the next time I see her... again. Now I'm on to wave, and I'm almost half way through it. SUPERB book, so far. GREAT ideas. I'll tackle Speak next, and after that I'll re-read the second book in the "Pants" series as I call it, and then read the third. I doubt I'll see the movie.

I typed up my "Rosethorn's Revenge" story, which was the second chapter to "Shrunken Shirt". I wrote RR before nano wrimo, and it was saved on my computer. I didn't have Microsoft Word to edit it with, though, so I re-typed it to my laptop and did a bit of editing using Microsoft Word Version 6.0, which is near bloody horrible. It works, though, so I can live with it.

I'll probably end up going to Mr. Traverse's mother's wake today. It'll be the second wake I've gone to of someone I didn't know, and I've yet to go to any funeral. It miffs me to know that I'm going to these other wakes when I didn't even get to go to my grandfather's. I didn't get to go to his funeral, either. Da was talking about him last night. Granda truly was an amazing man. He certainly lives on in my father.

I just wanted to put up a bit of a true life update, since I haven't done so in quite a while. Ah well. Here's an update. Hopefully I'll come back to being an el-jay whore.

been ages since i commented on your journal. figured i'd say hi. =)

that dog does sound beautiful. i have a "secret" fear of German shepherds because my neighbors used to have a vicious one that chased me and almost ate my brother.

It has been, and I thank you. =D.

She was... majestic. There was this air of royalty around her, which was a strange thing to find around a dog. Maybe I'm just insane. Well, I know that already, but I still felt it.

Haha. Secret fear of German Shepherds (growl. Spelled it wrong in the entry, but I won't fix it. Too lazy). I'm glad your brother wasn't eaten.

I'm glad you like The Wave =). I like it too, but it kind of scares me that it's all real.

If I see the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie I'll probably get annoyed at it and throw something at the screen :P.

You could always throw me at the screen.

o.O I was thinking more something that wasn't breakable/wouldn't break the screen.
