As Jordan and I are finally done with an exceptionally long week, we decided to veg out by seeing how many internet animals we could name. The rules: They had to be real animals, they had to be on the internet, and we had to know their names off the top of our heads.
We named 18.
Additionally, we thought of a few who had names that we couldn’t remember:
Can you think of anyone we left out? Remember, you have to know it off the top of your head.
And here’s the question you’ve all been asking yourselves: While I’ve been playing with dogs, archiving museum photos, writing interactive fiction, and so on, what has the adorably misguided Sovereign Grace Church been up to?
Why, they’ve been hosting a conference about ambition, for men only, of course!
Things I’ve learned from this event:
- Women are not wired for glory. Rosalind Franklin and Ada Lovelace get their work attributed to Watson/Crick and Babbage because they just couldn’t handle the fame.
- 14-year-old males are men.
At some point, you just have to come out and admit that you’re sexist. Quit hiding behind goofy “complementarian” terminology and own it. Embrace it. It’s who you are, and who, I can only assume, you were wired to be.
UPDATE: Sugar has been adopted! I hope she is having a wonderful time with her new loving family.
I try to avoid spamming this blog with these sorts of requests, but there’s a very special dog at the Pasadena Humane Society who is in need of a good home.
Sugar is a 10-month-old pit bull and an absolute angel. She loves everyone and is super gentle with children. Be prepared for a lot of kisses and wags. She loves to play and chew on squeaky toys. She’s graduated from the Shelter School program and knows sit, down, and stay, and is ready to learn more.
Sugar is a favorite of our mobile outreach team. Here is a video of her at our fundraiser, the Wiggle Waggle Walk, where she won an honorable mention in the cutest dog competition.
Nevertheless, we’ve had trouble finding a home for her. Pit bulls are just never in very high demand. She has been at the shelter for two months so far. If you know anyone in the LA area who has room in their life for an active medium-to-large dog (she is about 40 lbs and won’t get much bigger), please pass this along and point them to her PetHarbor page.
