I am an animal lover. I have 3 dogs and they are all important to me. Now, I’ve had many dogs over the years and they all seem to have fairly laid back personalities. But I am wondering if their personalities are as unique as humans? I mean we have differing types of jocks and princesses, nerds and Goths, so do they have that too?

Recently I turned 47 and I’m proud of that milestone. True, outside of avoiding life ending behaviors it has only meant that I have managed to successfully breath for that long and I embrace that.

It looks like the real has hit really hard in my world and my chosen family is feeling the brunt. What used to be a happy “yay” when Wednesday comes along has turned into a rush for the respite that is new comic book day! And the few moments that I get to dive deeper into the current book that I am reading is a mental oasis for me. And, the much needed and wanted time with friends and loved ones is an emotional recharge! Continue reading Irregular’s Intel – Escapism
