  1. Yeah I've read a few stories while researching my future dog that one of the best apartment dogs is a greyhound, surprisingly, because they just require a few minutes of all out sprinting or other exercise but will otherwise just sleep all day and they generally have a mellow temperament so they won't bark at every sound that one might hear in a busy apartment building. I'm a fairly active person (like to go hiking on the weekends, I try to go running 2-3 times per week, I get my 10k steps almost every day, etc.) so I'm not as much worried about the dog getting the exercise it wou
  2. If you don't mind me asking, what do you pay in DC for such a service? Here in Portland, on Rover people are asking for anything from $15 to $25 per day just for a walk, whereas doggy daycare for the whole day is right around $25-$35 per day.
  3. @Commissar SFLUFAN I'm curious, are you working from home these days? What do you do with Inuk while at work? I've been longingly eyeing getting a dog for years and I really want to pull the trigger, but since I'm currently away from home (an apartment, also a down side) from about 7:30 am to 6 pm for work M-F, I haven't done it yet.
  4. My air purifier just arrived Saturday and then we got that downpour.
  5. Abba zabba is my only friend.
  6. Also zero for me, though I'm not necessarily opposed. I had an ex that put some of the ashes of her dog in to the ink and the artist tattooed some paw prints on her wrist... I thought that was a good tattoo and I could see myself doing something similar.
  7. What's Mozart doing right now? Decomposing.
  8. I don't have anything to contribute other than to say that Ketchum is about 45 minutes from where I grew up, and it has always had a ridiculous amount of money involved; it's where Hollywood celebrities (used to?) have their winter ski homes. Another fun fact: Ketchum is also where Hemmingway is buried.
  9. Ugh. Time to start looking to see if I can get a decent air purifier. I suspect they may already be selling out.
  10. @CastletonSnob Just a quick post to say I agree with Fizzzzle's assessment. The manual doesn't seem to provide much information about the components, but based on a couple reviews from Amazon that include pictures, it looks like the power supply is not a standard ATX power supply so yeah, it could be quite challenging to replace. However, if it's going to die it will probably be sooner rather than later and the 1 year warranty will cover it.
  11. I'm not sure that she's the dumbest person... we're at least talking about her and not the treasonous acts committed by those people.
  12. Had my 2nd dose of Pfizer on Monday and had no side effects.
  13. ^ worked in retail a couple years, have definitely heard all of those.
  14. I see this was cleared up already, and my German has gotten a bit rusty in the year I've been back, but I think he's saying: DICKS OUT FOR HARAMBE!
  15. I had debated getting a condo here in Portland instead of paying rent for an apartment, but I imagine this bubble is bound to burst soon.
  16. I'm down for this coming Tuesday if you all are!
  17. I'm in a long-running reading lull. I have a metric ton of books to read but can't decide where to start. I've started about four or five but can't seem to stick with any one of them. So far, I've started: Apollo's Arrow by Nicholas Christakis Meditations by Marcus Aurelius The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien (for the 100th time ) The Meritocracy Trap by Daniel Markovits I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Isn't) by Brené Brown I stopped after about 20 pages of each.
