We put Cindy to sleep about 7pm EST today. Jenny and I managed to get to Louisville in
time to say goodbye and tell her we loved her. I think that there are few things
that are harder than putting a dog to sleep, even if they're obviously in a lot of
pain. We're all pretty devastated.

My family is probably going to put Cindy to sleep tomorrow. She has a massive
cancerous growth on her spleen and she's bleeding internally. I don't know how to
describe or react to this, so I'm not going to try here.

We've arbitrarily designated Cara's birthday as today (we know for sure she was born in
March, but not the exact day), so she's officially a year old today. We got her a cake
and some presents, and got a cake and some presents for Fiona, who was in town this weekend
and whose birthday was recently as well, and had a grand old birthday gala. Sort of. :)

In other news, we have discovered that Cara loves orange juice. It's the funniest thing…

The longest post I've posted in a long time, and it's about geeky stuff. Sigh.
Anyway, Fiona's coming into town this weekend, so that will be fun. In other exciting
news, Dar Williams will be playing in St. Louis the first week of April. I love living
in a big city. :)

I kind of miss being in an academic context. I don't really miss homework, or tests, or
professors, or anything, just the context where it's not merely possible but encouraged
to sit down and have a free, intense, wide-ranging discussion about something that has no
real immediate or practical bearing on the world, but is just interesting to think about.
Maybe I should look into some sort of research position. On the other hand, I enjoy it,
but I'm not so sure I'm really good at it, so maybe I shouldn't. :-P
