Well... now I feel sheepish

So, I just had a very funny realization that I thought I might share with you. You see, I've suddenly gotten very into this series of books by Jim Butcher. You may have heard of them: Dresden files, new york times best sellers, blah, blah, blah. Well, I was looking at the back flap and I was staring at his author picture and I thought to myself, "Man, he looks like the kind of gamer guy I'd be friends with." and then I looked at him again and thought, "This looks like someone who I am friends with" and then I thought, "Wow, he really looks like someone I've met at a convention before."
Then, I was perusing his webpage reading this really funny little ditty about how he LARPs and I was like "Oh God, I've totally LARPed with this guy." That is if he was the same guy who came out with the other NERO LARPers when I went to BenCon that one year and they ran the camelot LARP. Actually, I have a funny feeling he might have said, "Hi, my name is Jim Butcher" and I might have said something inane like, "Oh, hi! My name is (...)!" while he tried to tell me that I should have heard of him and I said something like, "Yeah, oh! Cool, you write books? Me, too! I'm not published, though, that's awesome".

I'm starting to get excited about graduate school. The one I'm applying to is in Westminster, CO. It seems to be a really nice town: great dog parks, nice housing developments and some swanky (but not too pricy) shopping areas. It is the home of the Butterfly Pavilion and within a stone's throw of Water World. True, it's not super close to the library district's I'd hope to be working for, but with a commute of only 45 minutes, it might be worth it.
Well, we'll see. I've got my application filed, I sent off my transcripts and now, all I need is to get two recommendations and write a statement of purpose. Wish me luck!
My Imaginary Perfect Day
Wednesday. 6.6.12 1:56 pm
I wake up in the morning to a faint tugging on the edge of my blanket. Monzi is up and away and wants her morning walk. I give her a wan smile and then open my arms to give her a hug. The great fluff that is Monzi runs into my arms and I slide out of the bed, laughing and fending off her tongue. I get her leash and we go on a walk.
The morning is fresh and there are only a few birds out. I take my time looking at the blades of grass while she runs ahead, checking on me whenever I fall out of her sight. She is excited about the walk, but sheís more excited about what is to come.
We finally finish our walk and then climb into the back of my Subaru. The hatch back was big enough for me to fit all of Monziís kennel. I close the back and we drive out to the lake. I open Monziís cage and throw a tennis ball into the water. She runs out there splashing and then swims back to me. I meet a client on the dock. He has a Labrador retriever that he is trying to teach to like the water like Monzi does. We spend a couple of ours getting the dog used to the water. He is starting to get the hang of this whole thing when it comes to the end of our session and I say goodbye to our client.
Next, we load up into the car and go home. Monzi is soaking wet, so I give her a bath before we go to our next encounter: the school. We take Monzi to a middle school in town and talk to them about dog care and show all the kids Monziís cleverer tricks. They are absolutely amazed and everyone gets a chance to pet her, which is Monziís favorite part about this experience.
After that, Monzi and I go home. I throw the tennis ball a little for her in our yard and when sheís tired, we go inside and I read books about dog training, behavioral modeling, motivation and so forth. Before long, we are both ready for bed. She sleeps in her bed in the corner, I sleep in mine and we fall asleep to do something similar the next day.
