Democracy is good. I say this because other systems are worse. -- Jawaharlal Nehru
which seemed pretty apt with the elections coming up & the amount of utter garbage (read party flags & other propaganda) that has been tied up without so much of an inch of uncovered space left.
After an afternoon nap, I've been trying to convince/coax mom & dad into buying a puppy. This is the time I've met with most success, they've agreed to see the pup.... Dad's still not too happy about the idea, Mom wants a pup...but can't decide if its worth the effort/added strain on her. And then there's always money (which screws up the equation, as I just learned a few minutes ago...)
I'm keeping my fingers crossed & praying hard. I've never pestered them for anything, because pestering/being adamant won't get me anywhere with them (learnt that one a LONG time back hehe)...let's just say I'm pushing hard.
