pets you can adopt if you are allergic

Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by environmental factors such as pollen in the air or dander on a pet. The resulting reaction is usually itching or congestion. As many as three in 10 people in the U.S. experience allergic reactions to cats and dogs and cat allergies are about twice as common as dog allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). Veterinarians say there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic pet. But some cause fewer symptoms than others. Via: The active Times

musesfool: close up of the Chrysler Building (home)
[personal profile] musesfool
This morning I met up with boss3 to do a site visit at a conference space in the Empire State Building and gosh, it was a beautiful room. I say site visit like the meeting is not actually taking place there next week (it is); it was more to introduce me to the staff on site since boss3 will be away and I will be staffing the meeting. Just like my meeting planner days! Now I have to put together the BEOs for the caterer etc. It's so fun! If I only ever had to do meetings in NYC, I would go back to meeting planning. It was the travel that killed me. Among other things. (uh, the building on my icon is the Chrysler Building, but you get the idea.)

I hadn't been to the Empire State Building since I was a kid, and [tumblr.com profile] angelgazing was like, "Why even live in NYC if you don't go to the attractions?" and I was like, "I've never even been to the Statue of Liberty." *hands* Generally speaking, the thought of masses of tourists repels more than the attractions attract. Unless someone from out of town wants to go, I generally don't do those kinds of things, though they are always fun when I do.

Anyway. The Good Place had its season 2 premiere Wednesday night, but it started at 10 pm and when I saw that I was like, "oh hell no!" I am not cut out for 10 pm shows anymore. So I set the DVR and watched it last night.

Spoilers from here on out! Please don't read if you haven't watched. It's a show that works best unspoiled the first time around! spoilers for all of s1 and the s2 premiere )

[personal profile] rachelmanija has a much more thoughtful post here.

OK, y'all have convinced me -- well, y'all along with someone in my book group who talks about it a lot -- to check it out. I'm only on s. 1 e. 6, so I am going to say naive things, but . . .

Wow, is this show cheesetastic. I can see why my partner gave up after episode 1, when it first aired. But then, I watched Lost Girl, so clearly kickass women, a sense of humor, and sex positivity go pretty far with me, especially if the cheese is that special Canadian brand. I'm definitely caught up in it.

It doesn't hurt that I am going through a Western phase at the moment -- someone watch Strange Empire on Netflix so I have someone to talk about it with, please? Of course I am most fascinated by Doc, since he's actually *from* the Old West and since I'm always fascinated by out-of-time characters. Especially since he has a little bit of a Timothy Olyphant in Deadwood combined with Timothy Olyphant in Justified thing going. (Hell, I watched Santa Clarita Diet for Timothy Olyphant.) I'm sure I can't trust him as far as I can throw him, though, and I mean me, not Wynonna, and I can throw way less far than she can.

Wynnona clearly gets her clothes in the same place that Jessica Jones gets hers. In fact, my first reaction was that this was kinda ilke a Western JJ, if Jessica hung out with Willow Rosenberg instead of Trish Walker. I mean, Wynonna has a different personality, but a lot of traits in common with Jess.

I am spoiled enough to know about later ships. But I would like to know why any character who is a) attractive and b) not directly or ancestrally connected to the OK Corral incident has a ridiculous name like Dolls or Haught-pronounced-Hot? I know this has its origins in a graphic novel (mostly because I read it in the credits), but it's distracting.

Also, Canada should make all the Westerns, modern or past, because Scenery.
