ok, this is bella.
you'll notice a few things about bella. let's start with the obvious, like, that she's a dog. an english bulldog, to be specific. she's 4 months old. she has a hapsburg-romanov style underbite. she has a constantly protruding tongue. she can do long division in her head. she has figured pi out to the 37th place. and she's currently negotiating a cease fire between the tamil rebels and the sri lankan government. and she can fly.
i guess some of these things are kind of surprising, what with her being a 4 month old bulldog. normally bulldog puppies don't have the ability to fly without some sort of apparatus (like, say, a cape). but bella is special. she's also currently writing her memoirs (working title, '4 months old, sure, but i've lived.'). oh, she also has a pink fleece hoodie that keeps her from getting too cold. this comes in handy as it's currently cold in nyc. that's because it's almost winter. so bella is prepared. semper fi. which doesn't mean 'always prepared', but somehow it seems apt, especially as bella is also a u.s marine. i believe she might also be on obama's short list for 'housing and urban development secretary'. but some other qualified people are also on said short list, so we'll see how that plays out.
ok, that's all.
