My cat died yesterday. Here is a little memorial I posted on drodd:

Twelve years ago I was a Junior at college. I was 20 years old, had long hair, worked at the campus radio station while going to college. Twelve years ago I got Schmoopie. She and I have been through a lot together. It is hard to even think back to all the changes that have happened in my life since then. I always got a strange sense of comfort saying bye to her as I left, knowing that she would be there at the door when I got back home. Sadly today Schmoopie Paper died. She had either an allergic reaction or a heartworm that seriously affected her breathing. Schmoop didnt respond when the vet put in breathing tube but her heart stopped. It is real sad but she truly had a great life and was spoiled more than any animal probably should be. The past couple years have been tough since she came down with a hyperthyroid condition but she never was in really any pain until really the last day of her life. I will always miss her and remember her but mostly I will look back at all the exciting changes that have happened in my life during her 12 years and be happy knowing I had her during all those memories. The saddest part is that Schmoopie never did get to see the Cubs in the World Series - oh well. In lieu of flowers, I ask that you just pet your cat or dog for me.

Joke of the Week

Seems an elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.
He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased you can hear again."
To which the gentleman said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will five times!"

like the riot

that guy is just a ball player
he could go 0 for 5 and do something to win the game for the team
make a defensive play or something

little kid i nodded and said hello and he said 'hey man'

Agreed. Dempster scares me right now. Not a lot of confidence in him right now.

i think they might be peaking at right time (at least the bats)

--- Mankiewicz Andrew-CAM056 :

They have been playing well the past 7 games. The big
guns are finally starting to heat up. Now, if big Z can get it going
like he was in June & July, they could easily represent the NL...

--- Mankiewicz Andrew-CAM056

Yeah, they had Murphy doing Cubs analysis on after the
game last night. Real dumb.

If you can stream at work, Doug & OB are losing
their mind on 670 right now. Interesting stuff...
