    Seven months ago we adopted a rescue dog who had been abused quite badly. We have given her lots of love and attention, good food, and medical care. What do I get for all of our efforts? A gentle head resting on my leg. — photos.app.net/11825126/1

      A toast to the late Ed Fischer, New Yorker cartoonist and witty, witty man. Your humour and spark will be sorely missed.

        Bravo Will Barnet. A life very well lived, sir. Your work is an inspiration, as were your thoughts about art. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/14/arts/design/will-barnet-painter-dies-at-101.html

          Any other board gamers excited about Spiel starting tomorrow in Essen? So many games, too little time.

              Am I the only one on App.net at the #Fluxible UX conference in Kitchener?

                Wildly simple and well done ... the puzzle of dogma. http://i.imgur.com/vb8ne.jpg

                    Just sat down at the #Fluxible UX conference in Kitchener. Two days of UX goodness.

                      One of the worst nights of being a father in almost 15 years. Not being able to financially provide for a teen's sport anymore sucks. Hard. Really fucking hard. Then again, raising the fees >300% without notice was a shock too. #icannotprovidewellenough

                          Time to diss TO mayor #RobFord tonight? Uh, admitting in court to not reading the conflict of interest rules in 10 years as councillor? Newsflash fat-face > Ignorance of the law is *not* a legal defence. Stupid asshat. You deserve to lose your job.

                            Toronto mayor Rob Ford's platinum dyed-blonde niece's advice to women? "Don't dress like a whore." Guess that's why she quit the lingerie football team she was on? (Just when you thought the Ford family tree couldn't get less intelligent.) #notafanofFord

                                  OK, can I get my $50 back now? :-) >>RP @whalesalad I casually let out a fart, and of course seconds later a project manager wanders into my cube to give me dark chocolate. I feel horrible now.

                                      The NY Times has replaced the image on their website after receiving what one columnist described as "hundreds of complaints".

                                        @sneakyness Wow, that is horribly graphic. The photos the Italian newspapers are running showing Gaetano Marino's murder are not pretty, but nowhere near as horrible. That's a person who had their life ripped away. What will the family say to the NYTimes?

                                          Oh noes! The best fish and chips shop in Waterloo, Ontario (Ish & Chips) is destroyed by fire that ravaged the building they were in along King Street. #localnews
