Ticket, leaf, and bird poop. And I just saw the owner washing this car the other day. So sad. At least it wasn't damaged from the time the other week that it parked in the middle of a marked construction zone, forcing the crew to work around it the next morning.

I think she's altogether a smart dog. But this was not her finest hour. I tossed her a treat coming out of the store, and she missed it and it bounced through the railing. I unclipped her leash, but she refused to walk around the railing (like we've done hundreds of times) because she was fixated on the treat on the ground (that I was trying to walk past once she came around the railing).

Why is the Enjolras/Grantaire ship known as E/R?
in the book, it’s mentioned that grantaire likes to sign his name as “R” (big/uppercase r). in french, the letter r is prounounced “aire”, and the word for “big” is “grand” (pronounced “grahn”). so therefore, grantaire = “grahn-tehr” = grand r = big r = uppercase r = R. it’s a pun. oh hugo.Via A Linguist Explains the Grammar of Shipping. I confess that I briefly imagined the article would somehow be about the semiotics of cardboard boxes and was disappointed that it was not.
