Oh yeah, that’s right. My parents got a new puppy (well, he’s really about 2 years old, but he’s so darn cute I’m gonna call him a puppy!)!! Yay! I love animals.
Now, I might be so infatuated because I know that I will shortly be able to have my own puppy, but either way, I’m somewhat of an animal freak.
By the way, for any English teachers (or majors) out there. Here’s a question. The English department and I were discussing the other day the rule about capitalization and the names of breeds. Apparently the rule is that you don’t capitalize a dog’s breed unless it’s like “German Shepard.” What’s with that? It seems like they’re proper nouns, right? I mean, to be a beagle you have to have certain traits…right? And, if that’s true does it mean you don’t capitalize the different breeds of horses? Cats? Who made up this rule?
I am now stepping away from the nerd podium.
I actually got some grading done tonight (yay me!). Although, I still have 22 (hopefully – if they all turned them in) 4-5 page research papers on historical figures. I’m not gonna stress on that one though. I’ve got time…right?
In other news. Anyone got advice for breaking a slow weight-loss cycle? I’m exactly (exactly!) where I was a month ago. I mysteriously had a 2ish pound weight gain a couple weeks ago. I say mysteriously because I really didn’t do anything differently. At all. I worked out the same, I ate the same. It wasn’t TOM. What gives? So I’ve lost that wonderful 2ish pound gain, but I’m kinda frustrated. I’m SOOO close. Any advice?
