Be True To Your School

Quick Hits:

1. Poppy (the pug) is in heat and we plan to breed her later this week. Ideally, this will lead to some puppies in early August. Josh asked me if I could name the fattest puglet Pork Chop. I think I can swing that. Other puppy names?

2. I am scheduled for precisely zero hours of work this next week. This may prove problematic. I guess I'll try to make the best of a bad situation and spend some time driving around aimlessly, listening to the Beach Boys.

3. I'm actually kind of looking forward to my grad party. It should be fun to see family friends and relatives, and I think I can handle smiling, gladhanding, and answering the same 6 questions for 3 hours. I wish I could say the same for Sam Walker.

4. I'm posting this on a brief break from the Great Pre-Grad Party Cleaning of Ought-Seven. I've been washing windows and mini-blinds for the better part of 4 hours now. I'd be getting it done quicker, but these damn pugs are weighing me down.

Seriously, I wonder if the Chinese developed the pug as an economic weapon. It's so elegant: they export the pugs to their competitors, who experience precipitous drops in productivity when their populace turns its attentions away from work and towards their pugs. And who's there to step in to fill to pug-induced shortfall? That's right, those pug-developing Chinese.

Really, this could be a national security concern. If we're devoting all of our time and resources to caring for pugs, how can we properly prepare to defend ourselves? By importing more and more pugs, I fear we've moved from A to B on our guns vs. pugs production possibilities curve.

Man, this should be a T-shirt. Pug-loving peace enthusiasts would be all about it.

The Chinese Pug Plan wouldn't work. Heartless entrepreneurs (me) would intercept the boats full of pugs and use the pugs to make pug coats. Based on my research, there is currently unsatisfied demand in the U.S. for pug coats.

I do believe countries have well suited to label living things.
Capitols could work just as well really.

I dunno tirth...all the contributors to this blog were part of the original Manly Mustaches basketball team. That kind of bond is hard to break.

On the other hand, probably.

 
At 4:41 PM, June 05, 2007, Blogger PanzerV said...

which hand are you ready to rely on?
if the other one, email me the details on tirthkpatel@gmail.com
To bolster my case, might I add that I have the required credentials namely, an above-par mustache.
And remember this: I shall be forever in debt to you for making me a part of this reputed establishment

tirth, I'm happy to let you on the blog, provided you meet two conditions:

1. You grow out your mustache and post a picture

2. The other contributors agree. I think they will, but we should have a vote. It's their blog too, after all.

At 7:30 PM, June 06, 2007, Blogger constant_k said...

As soon as they get their sorry asses back on the blog.


Which could take a loooooong time.

Serioulsy though, I guess I'll tell 'em at my grad party. You comin'?

 
At 12:28 PM, June 07, 2007, Blogger PanzerV said...

i am coming to your grad party.
but cant you just use the wonderful powers of emails to convene the grand council for an online vote?

 
At 10:19 PM, June 07, 2007, Blogger constant_k said...

Nah they're too lazy.

I'll see if I can add you.


Tom Day might have to do it. Due to a thrilling technological snafu, he's the head blogmeister around here.
