my work is so random. sometimes i take silly pictures with my co-workers at the oregon state fair while eating elephant ears, sometimes i drink beer with tv reporters, sometimes i go shopping for office beautification, and sometimes i write about the suburban auto group saving owls...
in summary, an employee at suburban auto group on his day off was chilling around his house when he noticed a great horned owl stuck in some barbed wire that fenced the auto group (he lives across from his work...that's already kinda weird...and why he was looking at his work...i don't even know, but whatever.) he saw an owl...he knew his co-worker dennis supposedly knows a lot about animals so he went over and told dennis. dennis grabbed some gloves and a towel and went and untangled the owl. they took him to the audobon society who then informed the men that barbed wire injuries were the worst for birds due to resulting infections, fortunately however they were able to nurse the bird back to health. and now the owl is being released tomorrow at 5:00 p.m in the back field (its best to release the owls where you find them i guess) and i had to write a release about it.
don't get me wrong i love animals. i have three cats and a dog. and once i had 31 goldfish i had won at my elementary school fair. but when heather told me about it i kind of started to laugh...and she started laughing to and this is what i wrote.

we edited the release before we sent it, "tightened" it up a little bit...but sean said we should have sent the original one out...and next time we very well might because according to heather,
"nobody will fucking drive to sandy oregon in rush hour traffic for this anyway...i guarantee you"
