Old News: See The Wildflowers Before They're Gone | COVID Emergency Over | San Diego To Sue Sea World For Delinquent Rent | SCOTUS Upholds CA Farm Animal Welfare Law | SDZWA Announces Amur Cubs Are Female |

Amur Leopard Cub Sisters (Taken 5.1.23)

It's been a minute since I've posted besides listings and stuff about my dad, so since I'm still like your grandma who clips newspaper articles of interest, these may be a little bit dated, but I can't move forward without publishing all these little posts that I start. Things are good, but I'll save stuff about me for a diary post. In the meantime, I'll say that I've been keeping the zoo in my mental health routine and on Friday, at 13 weeks old (Born 2.17.23), the San Diego Zoo finally announced that the cubs are both female. They're actually having a public vote between three selected names for each. I've been calling them Smiley (for the distinct smiley face made by the spots on her forehead) and Blur for the lighter colored one who seems to zip through all of my shots. You can see the Zoo's post here and vote on the names here. I'm going with Ulybka & Zorinka, for the record. 

In real news, politics is still stupid, the debt ceiling is still hanging over us, crazy shootings are happening everyday, Fletcher is gone and that dumb bitch COVID denier is running for his spot, and apparently we're getting an MLS team after all. Also, I think El Cajon Boulevard or Orange Avenue was being used for a sideshow tonight which I find absolutely infuriating. So yeah, while I haven't been paying as close attention to the news as I usually do, I'm not really missing much. After the past few weeks, I've got an emotional hangover and am completely spent, so I think I'll check out for a little while longer. 

I love you all. Stay safe out there.
