Now, this is a cool meme:Comment on this post and I will choose seven interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.angelcure picked my interests for me. I also saw this meme in greyrider's journal.
1. Animal Rescue The first time I ever rescued an animal, I was living in Pittsburgh, Pa. My husband and I were both students and we heard the pitiful cry of a kitten down in a ravine. We took him home despite the fact that we were not allowed to keep animals in our apt. We hid the kitty for a few weeks. We named him Socrates. (Hubby was a PhD candidate in philosophy.) Eventually we found him a home. We became great friends with the couple who adopted him, and we were able to see Socrates (now renamed B.Bunk) at least once a week. A month after we gave Socrates up, we found another kitty. She was a beautiful calico and had one extra toe in every paw. She went to my friend’s aunt’s home. We named her Big Feet. When she went to her new home, she was renamed Misty.
A year later, we found a basset hound. He stunk to high heaven and we named him Odorous. We found his owners and found out that his name was Hubert. I am now involved with Basset Hound rescue. Animals need to be loved, but many are discarded, abused, or both. It hurts me a lot to know that there are so many animals in need, but I am just one person. I just hope that my work makes a difference. At least it does to my animals who came to live with me because I found them or I adopted them.
2. Arrogant Worms
I love to laugh. The Arrogant Worms make me laugh all the time I listen to them. And l listen to them a lot. They are three men who hail from Ontario, Canada
. It is my mission to introduce them to as many people as I can. Unfortunately, they never come to do any shows in my neck of the woods. One day, I will go to theirs. Or, better yet, may be they will in katje0711
's neck of the woods and I’ll go visit her for sure. *winks to Kat*
is the Brian Prindivlle’s journal. Brian and I belong to the same Basset Hound Rescue.
He is a great cartoonist. And his dog Frances
looks just like my late-Zack. What is not to like about him?
I love Hummel figurines. They are made of porcelain and the originals are from Germany. I just cannot afford them, but can appreciate them from afar.
As much as I love basset hounds, there is a special place in my heart for mutts (mixed breeds). Mutts are such individuals and many are extremely smart. Cocoa and Cinnamon are fine examples of mutts.
6. Michael Emerson
I fell in love with this actor
the minute I heard him cry out “Help me. Somebody help me,” in the episode “One of Them” of LOST. The more I saw him in other venues besides LOST, the more I realized that this man is extremely talented, very cute, and intelligent. I created a fansite for him, which has a lot of followers. I have had the pleasure to correspond with this humble man. What else can I say about him? He is almos perfect.
7. The View
I like this talk show because Joy Behar is on. Besides Barbara Walters (the originator), she is the longest member of the show (11 years). She is a very funny comedienne. Did I say that I love to laugh?
