And So, My Dahlings, I’m Back!

Has it been a month and a half already?!!

Time flies, doesn’t it?

Well! I wish that I could say that I have been on a spiritual pilgrimage to India, or shopping at the faaaaabulous department stores of Tokyo, or some other Auntie Mame-ish type of adventure all this time, but, alas, all the time gone has been spent at the Ashram and being mundane.

I still cannot access my blog at work, nor can I access most of yours, my dahlings, which explains the lack of comments from moi. So most of my “meaty” postings will have to be done on the weekend, or the odd evening when Husbandji and I aren’t having red hot monkey sex are spending a quiet, uneventful evening at home.

I’m home today because I took a “vacation day” off from work to bring Teddyji to the groomers and to do some other odds and ends around the Ashram.

Let me bring you up to speed with the past few weeks:

Tiamat is still being Tiamat. We’re STILL waiting to see if she will get any vision back in her eye or not. Husbandji doesn’t think that she will, but, he hasn’t given up hope just yet.

We had a call from the vet this morning. Teddyji had gone in for his yearly check-up this past weekend, and the lab tests came back this morning and his liver numbers are higher than they should be. The vet thinks that it might just be a “burp” as he put it (these high-falutin’ medical terms, I tell you!) so he wants Teddyji tested again in a couple of weeks and in the meantime he’s having us give him a Milk Thistle herbal supplement which he thinks may help.

Husbandji is off today as well (stupid, minor, Tiamat issues) and he was going to drop off a urine sample at the vet’s and pick up the milk thistle. I am also having him ask the vet what exactly his concerns are about the liver. When I have more news, you’ll be the first to know!

In other news, I have taken another step into the 21st Century, and bought myself a Kindle!  My only peeve about it so far, is that the somewhat esoteric type of books that I like to read are not generally available in “Kindle format”.  Hopefully that will change soon.

I can also report that I am once again recovered from my third, count them, THIRD! cold in the past eight months! I was seriously starting to wonder if this is the same cold that I came down with shortly after my father’s funeral in November, and it just keeps coming back and back and back…..

Well, I guess that’s all for now. I will try to visit you all in the next few days, and in addition to my “meaty” posts, I will add some fun filler! TTFN!


Ricky Martin Comes Out of the Closet

He finally came out.

In other shocking news; it is being reported that the sky is blue and the grass is green… 😉

The Drought is OVER!!!

The Eleventh Doctor


Relative unknown, Matt Smith, has been chosen to be the eleventh incarnation of The Doctor.

At age 26, he will be the youngest actor to play the Time Lord ever.

That, and his relative lack of acting experience has me somewhat worried about the continued success of the show.

Right now Mr. Smith does nothing for me at all…

In addition, with Russell T. Davies, the creative force who resurrected the Doctor Who series after nearly 20 years of it being off the air, leaving the show after the 2009 specials, I wonder if the show will lose some of it’s magic.

I suppose we’ll have to wait until 2010 to see.

Sigh. Color me disappointed…

The Next Doctor Will be Announced Tomorrow!!

BBC New is reporting that on Saturday, January 3rd, around 5:30PM  London time ( 12:30 PM EST) on a special episode of Doctor Who Confidential, they will announce the name of the actor who will replace David Tennant as the next incarnation of The Doctor!!!

Stay tuned!!!

No Rabies Shots for Me!

After much hemming and hawing, consulting of medical journals, and finally calling a colleague who is an Emergency Room physician for their input, my doctor is confident that I will not be needing treatment for Rabies.


Happy Birthday Paddington!

Paddington Bear turns 50 years old today!!

I adored these books as a child, and they have entertained and continue to entertain children all over the world!

Marmalade sandwiches, anyone? 😉

National Coming Out Day

You Could Have Knocked Me Over with a Feather!

Stunned! I am just stunned!!!

I never would have guessed it!

The next thing you know, they’ll be telling us that Ryan Seacrest is Gay too! 😉

“The Next Doctor”

That’s the name of the Doctor Who 2008 Christmas Special!


It’s supposed to involve the Cybermen as well…

Well, David Tennant is signed up to be the Doctor until at least 2010, so we will see…
