I had no idea a blog title with an opinon on lists would have such a big response

Okay, so I'm writing this mainly because I wanted to put that title up. I'm going to look at greyhounds this weekend. There is a rescue farm out in Mendota that I'm going to hopefully. I decided on a greyhound because they are calm, large dogs that are well suited to living in an apartment. (I dislike small dogs)They do like to run, but actually sleep most of the day. They are known to be couch potato dogs and don't bark. I want a male with a red brindle pattern coat. I have to get one that is small animal friendly, because of my cat, and if she doesn't like it, it will have to go back.
Names my sister and I like:
Number 6 (he wouldn't answer to number 5)

The G names are to go with my cat, Glow, and my sister's gecko, Gus gus (like the mouse in cinderella)
Okay, I have to go back to parasitology now. Leaning about things in your water that will kill you is a great way to not be paranoid. yeah.

lists are stupid

Warning: for once this is not sarcastic, cranky, or depressing. and yes, there are pigs flying outside my window right now.

So I'm going to write this before I get more than one day into the school year because by tomorrow I'm sure I'll be annoyed again.

So things that are really good right now:
-Second year of vet school. There's light at the end of the tunnel
-aunt gave me enough money to pay the adoption fees for a dog if I choose
-I'm back in my nice apartment, all by myself
-the research I did at MN is finally going to be published
-my research from the summer came back statistically significant
-once I finish writing that up I'll be first author on a paper.
-I'm finally able to go back to ballet after being injured since november
-I got some new clothes/shoes. Stupid I know, but black leather four inch stiletto pumps just make any day better.
-I finally have most of my software/files reloaded on my desktop and laptop
-I saw transformers last weekend- really awesome movie.
-my cat's finally talking to me again after five days of running out of any room I entered
-right now my parasit prof is going to show a movie of which the main purpose is to gross us out.
