Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI for listing Juggalos as a gang.

No, really. They're going to sue the Feds. And you know, they should. This whole "ICP are leaders of a gang" thing is not only untrue, but it hurts the band financially because they can't sell their t-shirts at places like Hot Topic anymore.

I have no love in my heart for ICP and their dumber fans, but you can't call them all gang members for liking a group. It doesn't matter that it's a shitty group, either. Every time the FBI interacts with pop culture it's generally hilarious and wrongheaded. Or it's funny after the fact, anyway. Let's hope this latest bullshit blows over soon.

The dog went back to the vet today to get her gum growth removed. We were right to put this above getting surgery for her leg now. They checked out her lungs because she's been having trouble breathing when she's asleep.

She has a growth on her lungs. They can't really do anything about it.

Fuck. Just...fuck. My dog might have cancer, but I'm not sure. At any rate, I think we're just going to take care of her at home and leg her leg heal as much as possible while...yeah.

Thanks to everyone who gave us some money through the PayPal button. It's really helped us with all these vet bills even though we haven't spent it on what we said we would. It's still all going toward her medical care. Thank you.

Edit: I got her back from the vet and the growth is worse than I had hoped. It's big and pressing on her heart and diaphram. Her lungs have a lot of fluid. We can't do anything but give her antibiotics and keep her comfortable.

I just...I don't know what to do. I'm devastated.

I took the dog to the surgery center today, after a merry run-around trying to find it.

She hasn't had the surgery. Because it's going to be $2,500 at minimum. That's the estimate.

Also, she has a highly elevated white blood count. She's got a growth on her gum, which she's had before and it was biopsied and found to be benign. But the surgeon is worried.

So, maybe she also has cancer. We don't know.

Also, I am instructed to buy a crate-she is not supposed to walk until the surgery and then not for six weeks *after*. Oh my god. Remember, this is a dog that catches critters and jumps the fence reguarlly. She will hate this.

PayPal button is still open. But I just don't even know when the surgery will be. The money that has come in has reimbursed the existing vet bills, and I thank everyone for that.

I just heard my neighbors yelling across the street. "ROLL TIDE!" "WAR EAGLE!" "ROLL TIDE!"

It's...that day. It's Iron Bowl Day. Alabama vs. Auburn.

And I'm going to work.

...We ain't gonna do SHIT for business today. And everyone we will see will be either drunk or in the middle of a football-induced pyschotic episode.

Why me?
