September 30, 2008 at 12:31 pm (Misc, Teddyji)
I’ll try to keep this short.
Yesterday morning Teddyji and I were attacked again by the same dogs that attacked us a few weeks ago.
Teddyji is fine. I was bitten by one of the dogs in the calf.
This time some people in a house that we were near heard my screaming and came to our rescue.
They called 911 and they KNEW who owned the dogs, as other people in the neighborhood have been attacked by these beasts!
The police and Animal Control are involved, although after reviewing the city’s laws on vicious dogs, I don’t have much hope that the owner’s will get more than having to pay a fine.
And apparently the “owners” have had dealings with the law themselves (illegal possession of guns!), and their neighbors don’t want to make trouble because these aren’t the kind of people that you want to piss off”… 😦
I’m okay, except for the bite which is healing and I did go to see my doctor and got a tetanus shot. (We took Teddyji to the vet as well and he is just fine.)
I’m now waiting to hear if the dogs are up to date on their rabies shots. If not then, the dogs will have to be quarrentined, and depending on the outcome I may have to be treated for rabies, which I hear is a whole lot of fun.
I went back to work today but I’m still shaken and I don’t know if I’ll ever feel safe walking Teddyji again. I have changed where we walk, but, I’m jumping at every shadow still…
I’ll post again when I know more. Talk to you all soon.

* Darshan- A Sanskrit term meaning “sight” (in the sense of an instance of seeing or beholding; from a root dṛś “to see”), vision, apparition, or glimpse. It is most commonly used for “visions of the divine,” i.e. of a god or a very holy person or artifact. One could “receive darshana” of the deity in the temple, or from a great saintly person, such as a great guru.

That’s the name of the Doctor Who 2008 Christmas Special!
It’s supposed to involve the Cybermen as well…
Well, David Tennant is signed up to be the Doctor until at least 2010, so we will see…
September 22, 2008 at 10:31 am (Family, Tiamat)
Well, as it turns out, my birthday festivities were, for lack of a better word, normal.
Tiamat behaved herself, and except for a few comments from her that irritated me (which isn’t unusual where Tiamat is concerned) she was actually tolerable.
M and IW did not bring their grand-daughters (as we had expected) so they were actually social with everyone else.
And I like the rest of the family, so there you have it.
It was quite refreshing actually, and made me realize just how nice an evening with Husbandji’s family could be.
Mind you, I’m sure that this was just a “blip” in the continuing saga that is my life (a.k.a. the Gay version of Everybody Loves Raymond).
So, stay tuned to this blog for the usual foolishness and mayhem!!!
