It amazes me with how many diseases and viruses that can damage the body. It also amazes me that with all these horrible things we are still thriving as a species. From the stuff we pass on to our kids to the stuff we do to ourselves and then just all the remaining viruses that change constantly. Ya sure we have all this new technology but how dies it help us when we don't even have a clue where to start. Like the new swine flu that is going around, scientist think that it could be part swine, part avian, part human. They don't have a clue about the virus only that it resembles the flu. Its getting sent to the CDC but we don't know when or if the CDC will start to analyze it. There is also talk that this virus might be a new influenza pandemic, but its to early to know. I just don't see why if this could be the virus that wipes millions of people out is there no sense of urgency. I think its kind of like herpes and syphilis some one was having sex with a pig. Yes that is where we got herpes and syphilis animals and people who couldn't figure out how to relieve sexual tension manually. Herpes is from our cousins the chimps and syphilis is from sheep. So any who, while all the official people make it seem like no biggie there are already cases in California. If that is too broad then how about this, there have been seven cases in a Fair Oaks school. The school closed down to try and help isolate sick kids but more reports are coming in. I don't know about other people but this really scares me, aside from the fact that I'm already a kind of paranoid person to begin with. We don't have any vaccines, no one knows what symptoms look like other than a flu, and no one knows about incubation periods or how it spreads. So after reading all this stuff I just wrote I was moderately concerned but not too freaked out and then I thought, What if I get sick? How am I supposed to treat it? Then I thought, O Lord if I get sick what if I get my family sick or my boyfriend? If I got my mom sick or even just carried it home, my mom could be in some serious trouble. Shes been very sick for quite some time she never gets any worse or better but she catches my dads cold my colds even my boyfriends colds really fast. Then she has a hard time getting rid of them. But if she got this virus what if she didn't have time to fight it because her body takes so much longer? Now I'm pretty scared. I just pray that the virus hasn't and wont reach up here. And if and when it does hopefully they'll have some idea about how to treat it.

So every Sunday I go to church with my parents. I do this to keep peace in the house. They found God, I still am not convinced and the church goers aren't making it any easier. I know these people are still people and everyone of course has flaws and bad habits, but wow these people just plain suck. So on Easter Sunday my mom volunteered us to help with the day care. I said yes because I thought we were going to be with infants and toddlers. No of course not we're with the preschoolers. Not all the kids were horrible actually most were pretty nice, but there has got to be one stick in the mud right? This little girl has got to be an only child, she would not listen to any of the helpers. Telling us "NO" more than once then going off and stealing others kids toys. Their Sunday School class ended and the kids got to play a bit before their parents came. My mom and I started to talk we both agreed that the little girl was a snobby brat. We then notice the little girl pushing a kid size fire engine around in circles almost colliding with another little kid every time she made a round. I told my mom that I had the horrible urge to stick my foot out to stop her. I decided better on it. I notice my mom walking in the direction of the little girl, and then she did it. The little girl came to a screeching halt and rammed her head into the truck not too hard just enough to piss her off. My mom played it off like it was an accident. Now before you think my mom and I totally horrible people the little girl went into other frenzies that I didn't mention just for times sake. OK so after that I then have to go sit through service. Only they have very few seats left and no one will move their crap over so me and my family could sit together. People saved up to a whole row for themselves and "Friends". They couldn't even work it out to help a family of three. This church pisses me off, the people and their kids treat you like crap, the parking lot is a battle Field, and these people who are supposed to have good morals let their teeny bopping daughters dress like tramps, and at CHURCH no less. Ya these people are awesome. So long as they go to church, pray, and don't cuss they think that they can make up lost time for being dicks. It just bothers me that people claim to be good Christians and they do stuff like this. I went to the Sacramento Church for the Deaf today. I haven't met a group of Christians who were so kind, welcoming, and patient. I wonder if having a struggle like they do is all it takes to really become a humble kind person. Because if so I'm going to turn up the music super loud from now on.

Do you ever see people with dogs (or kids both apply) and the dog/kid is being really obnoxious. Dogs for example jumping all over owner, pulling excessively on leash, or endless barking, and the owner doesn't correct the behavior. Sometimes they even think its cute. To all you owners who think that IT"S NOT FREAKIN CUTE!!!! Your dog is being a menace. As most of you know I work at a vet clinic, I do all sorts of things from cleaning to assisting the vet tech and the vet. I recently had to help the vet tech with a shitzo. This dog was one of the worst I've encountered. I had to restrain the dog( this is normal if we feel the dog might bite and wiggle too much). We drew blood and the dog was growling and wiggling really bad, still not to out of the norm. We then let the dog calm down and I proceeded to restrain the dog again so the tech could get a temp. Now I totally understand this can be very uncomfortable and normally we get some whines and sometimes the dog will try to sit down. But this SHITzo, really started to thrash,growl, and snarl worse than when he got poked. We got the temp and he's still freaking out so much that I've lost my grip and I'm using his harness so he wont get loose. Then he has the gal to BITE ME! No he didn't break the skin it just stung. But this was the first time ever I had been bitten out of rage and fear. So after that he is returned to exam room where his parent is waiting. I leave to go do my laundry. When I'm outside I notice the dog walking with a stuck up looking lady, I think to myself Ya that's what I was expecting, but that's when I noticed something else. This stuck up lady who wont discipline her dog not to bite, has a 4 year old daughter as well. Ya that's gonna be wonderful when that kid has poked that dog one too many times and does get a good enough grip to break the skin. And I beat that the little girl will get in trouble not the dog. This is soooo not ok with me. If you have a dog that's grouchy and untrained that's one thing but when you put a young child and that crabby dog together that's a whole new brand of kibble. I think its also annoying how people will buy dogs that they think will be a good family dog A.K.A dalmations, shitzos, and chow chows, are some of the dogs that really have no tolerance for kids. But the dogs like, wolf and any type of bull terrier get construed as killers and dangerous. This is so not the case. On the same day I got bite by the shitzo I also had a rescued pit bull named spike. Even after being abused and left for dead, I would trust this dog no matter what. He gives nothing but affection and lives mannerly in a home with two other rescued pits and two very small boys. And as for the wolves I had two growing up, I could do anything to these dogs and they would not even think about giving me a dirty look. They protected me like I was one of their own pups. And when they did have pups I was trusted by them to watch and touch, right after they were born. On my last note, I just have to say that you could make any dog a killer and dangerous, just because some breeds got a bad rap doesn't mean its true. And besides how do you think they got that way, its the owners job to be a loving and supporting pack leader. The owner can shape the dog into any personality they want its their choice to make them a dangerous dog not the other way around.
