I popped my pride parade cherry... *grin* I didn't go alone either. Although in that kind of atmosphere, traveling with a guide dog seems unwise. Jim is a black dog. We loitered in a Walgreens parking lot so I went in and out a lot, making sure that Jim was cooled down before venturing back out into the sun. I don't plan on repeating this in the future. Although, I didn't really have a choice in the matter. All in all, everything turned out OK and Jim did not get sick or overheat. *knocks on wood* There were no trips to the ER for the dog or for myself. I did manage to get sunburnt though.

The atmosphere was incredible and there were a bunch of people. I enjoyed myself but was very anxious about Jim's wellbeing. I now own a pride flag. It's about the size of a standard keyboard for a desktop computer and rests on my bookshelf. Two days in the city is absolutely exhausting. But I love it so much. Now if only the weather would stay in the 70's, I would be a happy camper.

On a different note, my ankle is sprained and kind of beyond repair. I have a lot to catch up on.

Remind me to write about:

  • K9 encounter
  • Field Museum
  • academic advances
  • financial issues
  • upcoming anniversary with J dog
I have class in 20 minutes. Hopefully I'll update soon. Apologies to those who read. Not having available internet or computer is epic suckage.

My senior year of high school I was in a sparring match for taekwondo with a girl who was nicknamed "the brick". Her strategy is kneeing and punching instead of a combination of kicking and punching. She is very tall and very thick and kind of slow. She attempted to knee me as I was about to do a reverse sidekick and I fell on my ankle.

As time passed, I continued to sprain this ankle at least once if not twice a month, sometimes in the same week. I'll be OK though. *grin* Pain is inevitable, in one way shape or form, just gotta grin and bear it.

Ah, wow, that must be a real drag. Well, I hope you are up and around in no time.
