We rescued a kitten this weekend to add to our zoo. So we have 2 bassets, a 17 year old cat, and little Andy. He's 7 weeks old, and was born wild and has known a human touch for only a week. BUT his favorite thing to do is to snuggle in my arms! I'm in love! Josie, the 17 year old cat absolutely hates him, but Memphis and Newman (the bassets) are very protective of him. It's so cute.

Thumbs down

The American Stroke Association's 2-year old tv commercial with NBA Star Paul George needs to be revised because the music in background drowns-out the very important message! Just as Mr. George verbally lists the meaning of F.A.S.T to identify someone having a stroke, the piano music swells much too loudly.

Today's just-opened DOVE CHOCOLATE wrapper saying?

Go dashing thru the snow.


That'll teach me to reach into the farthest depths of my work drawer for a yummy snack.

Ah, SEC recruitment:

two different PNMs, in AZ & AL, who are both rushing at Auburn. NO RECS. I was asked by another NPC alumna more than a month ago to write for them. Neither PNM has contacted me. My deadline of July 1 approaches. The quality of any rec I'd even think of writing is plummeting and soon to disappear into the abyss. The AZ PNM is cocky and thinks that because her sister had a "perfect rush" at AZ w/o recs (and got the top chapter), that she's now a legacy to said chapter & doesn't need recs. She's also uber wealthy, you know - and all that that entitlement brings. Sigh. The AL PNM isn't interested in my chapter, so *shrug* why even bother, she'll drop us after Open House, right? and she doesn't have recs for other chapters either. But, you know, she's special - she's a cheerleader, of course they will all want her.

Yes I have popcorn and sofa and air conditioning to watch this unfold. I truly enjoy saying "I told you so" in these kind of situations. Yes that makes me mean spirited and petty, in these situations. I own it. Insert NinjaPoodle's gif HERE!

Question Thinking About Disaffiliating

Hello everyone!

I have been an active member of my sorority for the past four years. I had been very dedicated until becoming a recent alumna.

After doing some reflecting, I feel like being in the organization was more so like running a business than experiencing a sisterhood. I had always promoted Greek Life for what it has to offer and I definitely would not be in the professional opportunities I am experiencing now without being involved in Greek Life very heavily throughout my undergrad.

Reasons that I wish to disaffiliate mainly are from me disagreeing with our new member education as well as the fact that I do not believe my organization has anything to offer me as an alumna.

I feel like the only thing the sorority is benefiting me in is on paper on my resume, but that is all. I have few actual friends in such a small organization (chapter-wise & nationally) and am not sure if this was the sisterhood intended for me.

This is definitely something that has been on my mind for a few months. Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

Instead of disaffiliation, have you considered taking a break/hiatus?

Is there room for me on the sofa as well, please? I'll bring lots of Wisconsin cheeses to share!
