Nevermind, I just Wiki'd it, and (Today I Learned) found out a Geo Prizm is just a Toyota Sprinter/Corolla.

Yeah, back when we bought this car, you could get much more car for the same money if you got one with the Geo badge. Otherwise, we would have just bought a Carolla. We got the folding rear seats, remote mirrors, and tape deck for the same price as the base model Toyota that had none of those.

That makes good sense.

Minifobette and I did our first volunteer shift at a local rescue shelter today. She's been struggling with *vague gesture* all of this, and told me during a low point "I just want to play with dogs."

I had to work hard to find a place that would let kids volunteer (and still only with an adult,) but it's not too far away, and their tasks include both dog walking and "socializing," which is literally just "take an animal out and play with it for as long as you want." Plus, the walking will be secretly good for her, too.

One small hitch was that while volunteering slots include weekends, training had to happen on a weekday. So I said fuck it and pulled her out of class. As far as I'm concerned, it's therapy, and thus an excusable medical appointment.

the dog training will enrich her more than whatever they were covering in school.

They're back!

Tasmanian devils, which were once called Sarcophilus satanicus or “Satanic flesh-lover,” went extinct in mainland Australia before the arrival of Europeans. Scientists believe the introduction of carnivorous dingoes, a surge in the indigenous human population, and a devastating dry season cause by a prolonged El Nino caused the devil to migrate to present-day Tasmania, said University of Tasmania ecologist Menna Jones.
