Ever since I received my Amazon Kindle for Christmas, I’ve been addicted to watching TV shows on it. I very quickly–almost embarrassing how quickly–sped through the entire Greys Anatomy series and loved every minute of it. I took a small break to obsess over The Hunger Games, but then realized I was craving a new TV show. So I went back to the 90s to obsess over a new show: Felicity. It was kind of crazy to realize the show was on TV almost 15 year ago, but it was the perfect way to enjoy my favorite decade and relax after work; and during lunch.
Yesterday was the last day (for the foreseeable future at least) that I was able to visit Pudge and take him out before heading into work late. He is just as cute as he was last week (obviously) and this time I managed to get him all the way down the block. He still couldn’t make it up the stairs, but I was more than happy to scoop him up and carry him all the way.
Every commercial I see for the upcoming Summer Olympics gets me more and more pumped. For someone who usually has zero patience for watching sports, I absolutely love the Olympics. So when I watched this video from Procter & Gamble (who happens to be a sponsor), I actually got a little teary eyed. Gahh, I can’t wait for them to start!
Gosh, this makes me want to cry every time I see it. I saw it on the news earlier this week, and again on Steve Dale’s Pet World. There is nothing quite like a loyal dog. They are just the best.
The country of Ukraine (along with Poland) will be hosting the European soccer championship games in June, and naturally, government officials want to make sure the public sees only the best the country has to offer. Their solution? Order a campaign to rid the streets of stray cats and dogs by killing them, usually through poison or lethal injection. So one person decided to do something about it. Christian Baur, a graduate of the Miami Ad School in Hamburg, began a new campaign. He placed a soccer ball on the street in Hamburg. As people passed by and kicked it, the ball made a howling dog noise. As people picked the ball up to see what it was all about, they were greeted with this message: “Stop killing dogs for Euro 2012. Thousands of dogs and cats get killed, burned or poisoned because of the Euro 2012. Please help us to stop this massacre.” The soccer ball also carries a phone number for monetary donations. Ukraine, you have a lot of work to do.
On Saturday night, we attended a concert by Good Old War at Lincoln Hall in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. I was hesitant at first since I had never heard their music before (and who am I kidding, I’m kind of a terrible concert-goer), but the ticket was only $10 and the venue was classy and welcoming. I ended up being pleasantly surprised and loved their sound; I think they may be a new favorite. This song–Loud Love–was by far my favorite. The worst part, though? Finding out on Sunday that Rahm Emanuel was sitting in the VIP section the entire night and I missed him! I was probably mere feet away from him and I never even knew it. For shame.
