I came through your site after being looking for an old USC friend of mine.  Anywho, here’s the dope on Rufus-the Amazon dog.

Meet Rufus!

He’s a fixture at—has been since early in the company’s history. He belongs to a couple who work here, and he accompanies them to the office every day. But really, during work hours, he belongs to all of us. Rufus can be found strolling our hallways, sitting in on meetings (he loves a meeting), or catching a few z’s in his crate. He’s a master of the hallway tennis ball chase, and has everyone snookered into giving him too many

Vital Statistics
Date of Birth: September 24, 1994
Place of Birth: Vacaville, California
Academic Honors: Graduate, Perfect Paws Kindergarten, San Francisco
Turn-ons: Walks on the beach; kitties; his best dog friend, Crew; stealing other dogs’ toys at the park
Turn-offs: Thunder, fireworks, earthquakes

Obviously I should be using my time off for better things.

Thanks, Matt!

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
