Also, my new goal is to make enough money to move someplace where I can get a dog. Dogs are fuzzy. I probably want a Black and Tan Coonhound, so I need to make enough money to live someplace appropriate for a big dog. Am tempted to move to a rural area in the south to accomplish this, except that I'd hate the weather there and also I doubt that my neighbors would be thrilled to see a queer pagan vegetarian move in next door no matter how many hound dogs I had. Perhaps I should look into fishing villages in Alaska again, although then I'd get a different kind of dog since that'd be a cruel place to ship a hound but a great place to have a local husky-type.
