I am so pleased with how easy-going this puppy is. I guess in comparison to Piper, who was as neurotic as I imagine a dog could be, anything seems laid-back. Hopefully training won't be too much of a problem, but so far so good I guess. I bought this huge pack of lab diapers made to absorb dog piss, but I have no reason to use them now, much to my pleasure.

Im still waiting to finish setting up my new aquarium, which is about 25 gallons and 2 bags of bioactive gravel short of full, but I'm getting my water from bottled water instead of the tap to keep the hardness down. Then after a couple of days of that I'll put in several plants, and after that settles I'll put in some bottom-feeders and frogs I guess. Finally I'll get whatever other fish I'm gonna get. I'd like a bigger fish if possible.

My landlord has decided to clean out his dump of a garage and put all the stuff in my yard. It takes up almost the entire area, a bunch of old boxes, microwaves, water heaters, fridges, etc. Junk. I think he's just reorganizing it, not actually throwing any of it away, though.

The class I'm teaching is this Tuesday, so I'm polishing up my powerpoint and writing up discussion questions for the paper I'm going to assign. The kids look like greeks, so I'll probably have to pull some teeth to get any answers. I'm going to sit in on a class tomorrow to see how well they actually discuss anything.

I got my "trailer in a bag" yesterday. It's a fold-up trailer that fits into a bag, which I can store in the back of my truck and not have to worry about someone driving off with it. I'm eager to try it out. I'm probably gonna need to bring my bike in anyway as I'm getting less than HALF of the mileage I'm supposed to be getting for some reason. I'm interested to find out what the deal is there.
