vetandready: When you know what you are going in for, how to avoid a tail slapping you in the face, and how to avoid projectile feces, rectal palpation of cows isn’t as awkward as it seems. It is definitely not the most disgusting thing a veterinarian may encounter, if you can believe that! Elbow…
a couple of bats flew into the tri-kap frat house...
and N and i were so thrilled to have them flying so close. i looked online and it said one of the ways you could get a bat out of the house was to stand outside your open door and make a scratching noise on something so that the sound waves help it see the door opening. i went outside and banged on something with a remote i found in the living room until the bats left. it was also funny /...

listen-look-feel: If your veterinarian can’t even tell what’s wrong with your dog or predict his outcome after a physical exam, blood tests and x-rays, there’s no WAY you can tell what’s wrong or predict how things will go at home. Instead of trying to predict your dog’s future, here’s what we recommend. Write yourself a list, including: 1. EVERYTHING you can think of that Fido might have...

my brother just got a green card
and on the same day one of my friends from high school asked me if i wanted to stay in the US permanently. i say the same thing i’ve said for months now - “i don’t know.” the answer used to be, “fuck no.” (or something more polite.) the thing is, i know the horses in the philippines better than i know them elsewhere. but then this is supposed to be the place...

i really thought i was going to be so psyched about this physiology class but so far the only thing i enjoy is the lab. i think the prof is pretty disorganized and loves the nervous system so much he dedicated like 3 days to it, and put the endocrine and reproductive systems on the same day by flying through the material. i like how he talks to us in lab but i think he’s a pretty bad...
