Trumpets, fanfare and a parade with clowns and dwarf tossing

My passport should be here on Tuesday! With the right name and everything! They called me especially to let me know, and it made my day. To celebrate, I think I'll go snowboarding. Yes.

I've decided to let the circus classes go for a couple of reasons. First that Thursday is traditionally one of my few evenings at home doing my own thing, and I value that. Second, it's not really something I think I'll pursue as opposed to say, aikido or climbing which I can see myself still doing when I'm old.

(Aside)Little voice: You are old. Me: Shut up, no I'm not.

Thing that's on my mind today - are dogs capable of love? Or, to put it another way, is the human definition of loving behaviour actually just social survival instinct covered with a veneer of civilisation?

This is what happens when I have too much coffee.
