so I was taking my dog to the vet this morning and when they were giving him his rabies vaccine, I just asked out of sheer curiosity if they were doing it in the brachial artery. This sparked a little conversation between the tech and I, until my vet finally turns, looks at me, and asks, “are you a med student? you should be.”

and so I’ve been thinking all day about it. because the sciences have always fascinated me, I’ve just been held up by my sheer loathing of math. but really. i could probably handle being a vet tech. it’s like being a nurse, but for dogs. I really think I could do it.


Actor Chris Pratt beamed down to our sector of the universe Monday night to surprise an auditorium full of deserving kids in a special New York Daily News and Disney Studios sponsored charity screening of the superheroes-in-space flick.

And the 35-year-old actor who plays the hero Star-Lord in the Marvel movie stayed in the theater until every last one of them who wanted to take a picture with him got their selfie.

“That was really fun, this is what is all about,” said a visibly touched Pratt after the show. “I get impatient sometimes being on a promotional tour all the time, but something like this I would sit here as long as it took to take a picture with every one of those guys.”

“Tonight was really special to me.”

Pratt stayed long past the time his security detail was supposed to whisk him away to answer questions and give some words of wisdom.
