One of the things that sophisticated bloggers [i.e, NEVER CAUGHT DEAD KEEPING A JOURNAL ON AOL] don't appreciate about AOL is the tireless work of our fearless and surely well paid blogmeister, John Scalzi, who makes a concerted weekly effort to keep members of J-Land entertained. [See By the Way in my Other Journals area].
Once again he reaches deep into his bucket of thought provoking topics
to regale us amateurs [by World Wide Web standards] with yet another
Today's conundrum is one of four [one of the remaining three is MINE]
he chose from a bunch of subjects submitted by AOL journalers who were
attempting to curry favor with management -- if being the social
chairman on the cruiseship AOL qualifies as management. The other three
will be presented each week during August. When it's my topic's turn,
I'll be sure to let you know.
Matt Drudge [Drudge Report] and his ilk may have their cult followings,
but have they ever written an original thought on the weekend about
choosing between cats and dogs? Of course not. They're too busy
making the world safe for Donald Rumsfeld.
The Scalzi Weekend Assignment is only one of the reasons we stick around here.
I'm sure there's another.
Weekend Assignment #123: Dogs.
Cats. There can be only one! Choose which you prefer and tell us why.
No weaseling out, people -- you can't say "oh, I like them both." You
must choose! Don't worry: In real life all the cats or dogs won't
disappear if you choose the other species. Honestly, as long as you
keep to food coming, everything will be groovy with your pets. So pick
one, already. We promise we won't tell. And pets can't read.
Extra credit: Isn't it obvious? Cat pictures! Dog pictures! Go nuts!
The main reason I prefer cats over dogs is because cats don't need to
be walked. They can also peep and poop without me having to make sure I
see where stuff lands so I can clean up behind them. And then
transport their precious do-dahs in my pocket, albeit in a plastic
bag. Twice a day. In rain sleet or snow. I'm not that anal
retentive. Although I wish they were.
Not to mention that dogs always want treats and praise afterwards. Did widdle Sparky make a BIIIG poo today? Wadda goood boy!!!
I don't think so.
Cats, on the other hand, can be trained to use the toilet. And flush it. I've seen the videos on TV.
And they don't hump your leg. But those are the only reasons.
Pictures to come. Oh, wait, I'll post my picture of BEANS temporarily, while you wait for cutesy cat photos.
