What I find remarkable is that our library computers are "unfiltered" or totally uncensored. This means that I was looking online for pictures of naked men in a publicly-funded space. Note: a privacy screen was in place and no one was nearby.
The library adminstrators and our city council have held firm to the principle of non-censorship for our library and I understand this practice is standard for Canadian public libraries. I've fairly sure that this degree of freedom would not exist in many countries in the world or even in parts of the USA.
My son's dog (Toby), an energetic 2-year old border collie has become increasingly attached to me in recent months and has become somewhat jealous of our other dogs.
Since my son has started his part-time job, I have the pleasure of taking her for long walks, early morning and after school. I walk in the wilderness along an abandoned railway track for about 30 minutes while she runs free, wild with excitement.
Yesterday, she was sitting on the back of the couch while I was lying on the couch with my laptop on my chest. I reached down to give my own little dog a boost as he wanted jump up to be petted. Most unusually, Toby growled and lept onto my little dog, pushing him and my laptop off the couch.
I caught the laptop just before it hit the floor and separated the snarling dogs but in the meantime, the power cord became wrapped around Tobi's leg and became damaged. A new cord is on order but for now, I will be laptop-less for at least a week. :-(
I am wearing boots today at school just to tease the Boot Fetish Student teacher who I posted about yesterday. I'll post a booted picture of me another day.
We run into each other in the staff room and at the photocopier but we haven't spoken or even acknowledged each other. He gets all pink-cheeked and flustered when he sees me and I just have to smile at that. Sweet! And a lot of fun!
But, my lunch period is nearly over, so I must cut this short. I'm sure that there will be other boot-fetish developments to report, eventually.
