This is an important quiz.

It also includes “pick a NHL team.” Because hockey and pie go perfect together.

tristatehistory:

On this date in 1776, British soldiers occupied New York City during the American Revolution. General William Howe landed 12,000 troops in lower Manhattan and quickly took control of the city. The British would control the city until the end of the war in 1783. Nov. 25 marks evacuation day when the British left the city.
The above print from the Library of Congress collection shows a depiction of the British troops disembarking in New York City. The date for its creation is suggested as 1778, but there is a question mark. Franz Xavier Habermann is listed as the artist.

I love the history of the American Revolution. I think in a prior life I may have been a revolutionary of some sort.

“Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry: Worry never fixes anything.” Ernest Hemingway (via wordsnquotes)

What in the actual fuck.

This is appalling.

Why? Who thought this was a good idea?!

“Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.” Kahlil Gibran (via writingquotes)

Almost four hours

The dog downstairs has been barking nonstop since I came home from running some errands. That was almost four hours ago. The funny thing is I went out to get away from the damn dog’s barking.

Let me preface this by saying I love dogs and animals. I resent that I’m not in the position where I could have my own dog, so I just live vicariously through other people’s pets.

But this dog…It’s my landlord’s boyfriends’ dog (yes, that’s a mouthful) and is evil. No one likes her and she doesn’t like anyone either. I don’t even think her owner likes her based on how he yells at her for barking. She’s bitten me. Twice. The other dogs in the neighborhood don’t like her. She’s a problem. And all she does is bark.

No, I don’t mean the kind of normal noisy dog kind of barking. I’m talking about barking for hours nonstop like she is doing today. This isn’t unusual. She had been barking for a good two hours or so when I decided to get out of the house and away from her. She barks at everything. The toilet flushing. Someone driving down the street. The wind blowing too hard. Not hyperbole.

I’m just at my wits end since I have to hear this all day now because I’m home most of the day day since I was laid off. And I don’t know what to do any more because I’ve had countless conversations with my landlord about this problem.

Currently love this song.

Sort of reminds me of The Kinks.
