Following the Daemon Crowd
Well, since I saw two others on my friend list take this, I decided why not? And took it myself.

Well, I see it's starting as a Lion. Be interesting to see what it settles in at after 12 days.

Semi Update
Well folks, it has been a long time since I have posted more than the occasional quiz on here, so I thought I'd sit down to write an actual post. Well, there isn't too much to say as the main reason I havent posted to much is due to not much going on.

Well, I guess the main thing going on now is I'm currently in florida on vacation. I know at least a couple people on my friends list know this, and I won't name names for privacy sakes, I know you know who you are though ;). And for those, yes I wanted to let you know I made it down here safely and I also told her both of you said hi. It was a plesant surprise to actually have a computer in my bedroom down here, so I still have my net access while I'm gone.

No YIM on this computer however, so Sab, Kip, and any others on my YIM list I can't talk to direct with you. If any of you have AIM though, I do have access to that down here.

Went out to a birthday lunch this morning. The food was pretty good, and you could tell the restaurant did a brisk business, as folks were arriving outside before they even opened their doors for lunch. Servings were not skimpy either, unlike some places. Still had enough food left that I needed a to go tray when we went home.

Well, can't think of anything else really notable, but I wanted to let folks know I was still alive mainly. Hopefully you will see more posts from me in the future, rather than my usual once in a blue moon posts.

Pets are for Life
I saw this on an MSN group I frequent, so decided to post it here. It really brought a tear to my eye.

>>Pets are for LIFE....
>>A man in Grand Rapids , Michigan incredibly took out a $7000 full page ad
>>in the paper to present the following essay to the people of his
>>HOW COULD YOU? By Jim Willis, 2001
>>When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh.
>>You called me your child, and despite a number of chewed shoes and a
>>couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I
>>was "bad,"
>>you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" -- but then you'd
>>relent and roll me over for a belly rub.
>>My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were
>>terribly busy, but we worked on that together. I remember those nights of
>>nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams,
>>and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long
>>walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the
>>cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs" you said), and I took long naps
>>in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.
>>Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and
>>more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently,
>>comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you
>>about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your homecomings, and when
>>you fell in love. She, now your wife, is not a "dog person" -- still I
>>welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection, and obeyed her. I
>>was happy because you were happy. Then the human babies came along and I
>>shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they
>>smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I
>>might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or
>>to a dog crate.
>>Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love." As they
>>began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled
>>themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my
>>ears, and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them and
>>their touch -- because your touch was now so infrequent -- and I would've
>>defended them with my life if need be. I would sneak into their beds and
>>listen to their worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the
>>sound of your car in the driveway. There had been a time, when others
>>asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your
>>wallet and told them stories about me.
>>These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I
>>had gone from being "your dog" to "just a dog ," and you resented every
>>expenditure on my behalf. Now, you have a new career opportunity in
>>another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does
>>not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but
>>there was a time when I was your only family
>>I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter.
>>It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the
>>paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her." They
>>shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand > the realities
>>facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers." You had to pry your
>>son's fingers loose from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please don't
>>let them take my dog!" And I worried for him, and what lessons you had
>>just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and
>>responsibility, and about respect for all life. You gave me a good-bye pat
>>on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and
>>leash with you. You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too. After
>>you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming
>>move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home They
>>shook their heads and asked "How could you?"
>>They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules
>>allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first,
>>whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you
>>that you had changed your mind -- that this was all a bad dream... or I
>>hoped it would at least be someone who cared, anyone who might save me.
>>When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of
>>happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner
>>and waited. I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the
>>day, and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room. A
>>blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears, and
>>told me not to worry. My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to
>>come, but there was also a sense of relief. The prisoner of love had run
>>out of days.
>>As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she
>>bears weighs heavily on her, and I know that, the same way I knew your
>>every mood. She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran
>>down her cheek. I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so
>>many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I
>>felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down
>>sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured "How could you?"
>>Perhaps because she understood my dog speak, she said "I'm so sorry." She
>>hugged me, and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a
>>better place, where I wouldn't be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have
>>to fend for myself -- a place of love and light so very different from
>>this earthly place. And with my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to
>>her with a thump of my tail that my "How could you?" was not directed at
>>her. It was directed at you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of you. I
>>will think of you and wait for you forever. May everyone in your life
>>continue to show you so much loyalty.
>>A Note from the Author: If "How Could You?" brought tears to your eyes as
>>you read it, as it did to mine as I wrote it, it is because it is the
>>composite story of the millions of formerly "owned"
>>pets who die each year in American & Canadian animal shelters. Please use
>>this to help educate, on your websites, in newsletters, on animal shelter
>>and vet office bulletin boards. Tell the public that the decision to add a
>>pet to the family is an important one for life, that animals deserve our
>>love and sensible care, that finding another appropriate home for your
>>animal is your responsibility and any local humane society or animal
>>welfare league can offer you good advice, and that all life is precious.
>>Please do your part to stop the killing, and encourage all spay & neuter
>>campaigns in order to prevent unwanted animals.
>>Please pass this on to everyone, not to hurt them or make them sad, but it
>>could save maybe, even one, unwanted pet.
>>Remember...They love UNCONDITIONALLY.

Quiz Time
Snagged this quiz from Fireheart1974

You Are Animal

A complete lunatic, you're operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you're downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
"Kill! Kill!"

Hmm, interesting, I never thought of myself as Animal, but an interesting result nonetheless.

Altered Horizons
Not sure how many MUShers out there read my LJ, but for those that are out there, here's an ad for a MUSH looking for players that I help to run.

Humanity lived in bliss without help from alien help, but it also managed to make Earth uninhabbitable with pollution, over population,and an unstoppable green house effect. Billions of people perished, but all was not lost as humanity made a leap for the inner planets Mars and four moons of Jupiter. With Earth abandoned humanity once again thrived, but this would never be the same....

Earth the eden that was a dead husk suddenly is reborn with all that made the Earth good back. The cities, resources, the natural world all in it's state of spendor. And while humanity was leary and opted to leave the Earth as a treasure for the time being for all to enjoy without causing harm to it...this was only the tip of the iceberg.

Soon space would flux and tear to open all over many universes sucking out the citizens of many worlds, many times, and put them all in this corner of the multiverses that existed. People, aliens, and animals of all different shapes, sizes, cultures, and beliefs would find themselves here. Confused and bewildered they begun to settle with those who were of like minds, but peace never comes easy with ideals clashing and war once food for thought now is as real as ever...

Come to Altered Horizons a multiverse of themes expanding from anime, video games, comic books, movies, cartoons, television shows, and books welcomes you to where you can play characters from different themes and have them interact with other characters of another theme. We allow for two different rp types with areas they can rp at. There is room for both combat and non-combat types alike here at Altered Horizons, so stop in, pop in some DVDs, grab a cold soda and have a good time!
