This year I am thankful that my brother, who just proudly proclaimed himself Team Darren Wilson, is spending the holiday with his inlaws. My parents are slowly waking up to the fact that having two Asian grandchildren means that they have to think before they speak about race. My brother is just oblivious.

When they catch this asshole, I hope they lock him in a small room with that cat.

A week later, I am at a party,… » 11/14/14 6:00pm 11/14/14 6:00pm

I love my vet clinic fiercely bc when it was time to let go of my beloved cat, who had fought kidney failure since he was one and lived to a heroic 161/2, they offered to come to my house if I would wait until they closed on Saturday afternoon. My cat slipped away in my arms on his window seat, and it was wrenching… » 11/11/14 12:24am 11/11/14 12:24am
