Very Quick Post

Somehow the rains held off for Opening Day and the Orioles put up quite a showing. At least until tomorrow, the O’s are in first place and all is right in the world. Also, my “Jesus Hates the Yankees” shirt was a big hit at the game.jesushatestheyankees

In other news, Natty got spayed today. But not without complication. First off, they had to pull her top canines out because they were supposed to fall out by now. Then they put me on speaker phone with the surgeon in the middle of surgery. He said that Natty has a birth defect and somehow her ovaries are a lot higher than they’re supposed to be. (I picture them in her elbows). Anyway, they had to make the incision bigger to get high enough to get out all of Natty’s junk. Which means an even more unhappy puppy when I come to pick her up tomorrow.

On the bright side, they put a microchip in her, so if she ever gets lost without her collar, the vet will be able to identify her. Also, I’ll be able to download MP3s.

FOOD UPDATE: Laziness prevails. Austin Grill for dinner.
