Belief System

1. I believe that customer service representatives should be given the power to truly serve customers. Tears should not be the password for even the most minimal assistance. (Especially when the fault is not with the customer but the "system.")

2. I believe that inside the nervous, mouthy, reactive coating of my dog there is a good dog who fights, exorcist-style - ever day to emerge. I haven't kept score but I believe the win percentage is about 50% thus far.

3. I believe I will be singing at an open mic at the Christopher Street Coffeehouse on May 26. I am equal parts excited and terrified. Much like the previous item it's going to be a gladiatorial fight between the two.

4. I believe that Chronicle Books is all things bright and beautiful. My most recent evidence is receiving a kind and much-needed pick-me-up note from Misti the other day. The photo on the card struck just the right tone so I flipped it over to see where it was from. Chronicle Books strikes again.

5. I believe that the new version of Firefox does not have all the bugs worked out of it yet. This is making my week go very slowly and confusingly.

6. I believe that the folks offering to care for your animals after you are raptured (for a small fee) do not have your best interests at heart. However, I don't completely blame them for going for it.

7. I believe that heaven (if it exists) will have an unlimited supply of new Dorothy Dunnett books. On a related note, I hope that Ms. Dunnett's idea of heaven involves a whole lot of writing.

8. I believe that taking the brilliant holistic pet care guy's advice on relieving not only my pets' allergies but my own makes me the crazy cat lady. I do not believe, in this case, that that's a bad thing.

9. I believe that there are better food choices to be made. I do not believe I'll be making them this week. (This belief is sponsored by Hood Ice Cream's Chipwich division.)

10. "I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days." I do. And if you ever get to kiss me you will, too.

  1. I'm not sure I'd want someone who wasn't raptured (whatever that is) taking care of my pets. Can I assume that my dog will come with me? Although, since I'm Jewish, I don't think I'm going anywhere.
