I'm sorry I don't know that Transformer.

Don't worry, we'll all be learning about it soon, I fear.
This is actually tomorrow's newspaper, with some salient points:-

Yeah, they really look like they're battling, don't they? No social distancing, not a mask in sight.... This world is going to end up dying from complacency and laziness.

^ Being tidy minded, I've continued this conversation in the Covid thread, if that's ok by everybody.

An exciting spontaneous project! A few years ago I picked up a small framed print of an illustration from the late 1800s. Last night I decided to search the web for the inscription to see what I could find.

As my luck would have it, I found detailed information from the Archives at The British Museum. Evidently, it was part of a set of three images by printmaker William Henry Boucher. They are renderings of paintings by Walter Dendy Sadler from London in 1889 - etchings and drypoint on simile vellum.

I immediately went to work manually reconstructing a complete set of the images at archival resolution stealthy lifted and assembled from the Archive’s website and soon had all three renderings printed and framed in my home!

The works are titled, “Where the Widow Lives,” "Who is it?” and “The Widow at Home.” I think they turned out splendid!

He's watching something on his phone, and doesn't pay attention to the dog at all. He only pulls him unnicely on the leash.

And, like, they are almost beneath my balcony, and the guy let's the dog out of the leash, and the dog just stands there, looking at him. Like clearly "pet me" or "give me something" or whatever.

And the guy ****ing kicked the dog an said "go on for ****'s sake"

I was like
"hey, you there, you know he has feelings too?"
"dafuq you said?"
"Eh...if you act this way toward your dog again I'm calling the cops"

And I just stood there watching him, to make him feel uneasy, until they both went home.

Like, what's so hard in understanding that getting yourself a ZINC is in order to give him/her a home, warmth, whatever, to for, a bond, a relationship, and so on.
It would also be nice to learn how to communicate with them – he could've said to his dog "go pee, I want to take care of something" in a way there dog would understand, and that wouldn't be so disturbing. For ****'s sake dog language really isn't ****ing hard.

It's not your ****ing duty to get a ZINC, if you don't want to have a relationship with him/her, or you think you might not be up to the task, just don't ****ing take that dog, cat or whatever home

I'm very disappointed that there are people out there who treat their dogs/pets like this. I honestly would have called SPCA or some animal management authority (if you have one) and report him. But without knowing the guys name it might not be possible.



Aside from that, I don't think animals deserve us, they are too pure.

I'm fine thanks. No covid scares among my friends and family, and I have been lucky enough to have been working online ever since the schools physically closed here in March 2019. So, yeah, super lucky.
Congrats too, on the performance of your homeland: a model of how to cope with covid.

Aww you're too kind Lis, it's been 4 years now since the break up and 3 years since my mental health break down (which is the cult Batlord was talking about lol). I can say I am in the best situation in my life, a great job, great apartment (I live by myself), an amazing landlord (who doesn't ever increase the rent, put a cat door at his cost and installed a heatpump/aircon), two adorable kitty's, loving friends and family, half decent salary, and I live in NZ.



However, I am struggling at the moment with the Covid-19 situation. Yes we've been a model country Lis, but, we had our 4th lockdown which has lasted over 3 months and the elimination strategy has been revoked as it's too hard to keep on top of the delta variant as there are Kiwi's not following the rules by visiting their family/friends which as increased the spread.


Now with there being a new variant, I am feeling the worry (it's hard not to when you're already dealing with anxiety) and had to go home from work 3.5 hours early due to nearly having multiple panic attacks. Luckily I will be talking to my counsellor tomorrow and will need to come up with some important techniques to cope with my feelings and raging thoughts.

I am not sure why, but I am enthralled by these pieces. I don't have the words to describe how they make me feel, if that makes sense?

Thankfully my Covid work panic attacks just come in the form cold nihilistic rage. Much easier to bottle up and swallow.
