In which we discuss dogfighting, Harry Potter, and bridesmaid’s dresses

July 19, 2007

So while I’m playing with my dogs today, I can’t stop thinking about this Michael Vick dog fighting situation.  I understand he is innocent until proven guilty (although the deck does not seem to be stacked in his favor), but whether he is involved or not, SOMEONE tortured and killed those dogs, and they deserve to be locked away for a long, long time.  I have a such a hard time believing anyone would do such terrible things to another living creature – but someone did.  It literally makes me ill -I get nauseated when I think about it.  I look at my own sweet pups, and it just makes me want to cry.  How could anyone participate in such activities, or even know about them, and live with themselves?  I really think there is a special circle of hell for these individuals.

I have to change the subject, because I’m upsetting myself all over again.  Anyone else totally excited about the new Harry Potter?  I certainly am.  I’m reserving all day Saturday to read it.  That is, after I sleep incredibly late, since I’ll be working at my bookstore’s HP release party until probably about 2 a.m.  We were making plans for crowd control today, and it struck me again how awesome this all is – we have to make plans for crowd control for a book release – how cool is that???

And finally, I brought my very first bridesmaid’s dress today!  My girlfriend is getting married in December, and for the first time ever, I get to be in a wedding!  I used to joke with my friends I was always a bride, never a bridesmaid.  It’s a very pretty dress – cranberry satin, strapless, and tea length.  So no ugly bridesmaid dress jokes for me.  And to top it all off, I had to go down a size from last time I tried it on!  Goodness all around!
