Drips and Drabs

Some items of interest and some “dish” for you, My Minions, as I don’t really have enough material right now to do an entire post from:

Besides her other charms, Tiamat is apparently also turning into a Klepto. She was in her bank the other day, and noticed that someone had left behind a very expensive set of men’s designer sunglasses on the counter. Instead of turning them in, she took them home! (She thought that Husbandji might like them…) Husbandji was not happy with her, and made her take them back to the bank and turn them in (their owner had in fact called the bank looking for them!)!

Just tried the new Starbuck’s Milk Chocolate Chai Truffles-Divine!! They’re supposed to be available at your local grocer’s (mine doesn’t carry them) but I did find them at Target!

Work, as always, is a thrill a minute. My boss mentioned to me this past week that upper management may want my team to take on a new role (one that they do not have the skill set for!). Both he and I think that this would be a big mistake, but, we will see…

Last night’s episode of Doctor Who was entertaining as always (those Sontarans are SO stupid!), but, what REALLY caught my attention was the preview of next week’s episode! The Doctor has A DAUGHTER?!!!! That should knock the Doctor Who fan universe on it’s ear!! (Although, when you think about it, it’s not that far fetched. After all, in the very first season back in 1963, the First incarnation of the Doctor travelled with his granddaughter Susan. I think that the shock value will come from the fact that he thought that all of his family were lost as a result of The Time War…) And did anyone else see the very quick shot of Rose on the Doctor’s monitor in the TARDIS?!!!!  I just picked up the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, and there is a whole article on these two items! Faaaaaaaaaaaaabulous!!

Husbandji bought several shrubs and plants for the yard yesterday, so I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow!

Speaking of shrubs and plants, I just found a new blog, written by another member of the “Family” called The Midnight Garden. “The Gardener” lives on Cape Cod and there are some gorgeous photos on his blog! Check him out! 🙂

I guess that’s all for now kids! Talk to you soon! 🙂

    I love little notes like this! I’m glad the FIL has some moral fiber.

    Note forTiamat: Karma isn’t just for Wiccans and buddhists, y’know. Stealing is BAD.

    Doctor Who Episode. I think it’s cool that the Doc has a daughter. It’s interesitn that the Human / Time Lord hybrid has the regeneration capability but she didn’t change appearance after regenerating.

    Candy. Chocolate is always awesome, but few chocolates beat Godiva (hey, a chocolate that’s named after a pagan goddess can’t be bad, right?)

    TigerYogiji replies: AAAAAAAAAARGH!!!! Stop giving me spoilers!!!!! I haven’t seen the episode yet!

    That Tiamat/sunglass saga cracks me right up! I can’t help it!

    The Midnight Garden reminds me of one of my favorites books, “Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil” it inspired many visits to Savannah! I might to check out his blog but i’m not much of a gardener. I enjoy flowers and shrubs but seem to have an, eh, grey thumb. Not completely BLACK mind you……….

    I love a quick catch-up. Even when it doesn’t feel like much to you, your minions appreciate it.
