Thursday Thirteen #93 -- Is there someone named Max waiting for you at home?



The ASPCA asked veterinarians for the most popular pet names, and Max tops the list. I got the idea for this TT when I took one of my cats* to a new vet and saw they had displayed their own list of their most common patient names and yes, Max was on theirs, too.

1. Max
2. Sam (Samantha placed #19)
3. Lady
4. Bear
5. Smokey
6. Shadow
7. Kitty
8. Molly
9. Buddy
10. Brandy
11. Ginger
12. Baby
13. Misty

Does your pet's name appear on the list?

*Joey, a name not on the list.

Back to work

I took two days off and was nothing but LAZY! I did laundry, but that's about it. My home is completely overrun by papers and mail and magazines. Did I do anything about it these past two days? No. I napped and farted around on the computer and stared slack-jawed at the TV.

When I do this once in a while, it feels stolen and wicked and delicious. But when I do it whenever I'm home, it just feels slovenly.

I'm taking another long weekend this week and I simply MUST do something constructive with it. Otherwise I'll have to deal with this self loathing.
