10 Late Things

I've been rolling 10 Things ideas around in my head all day but I haven't landed on anything. I should probably be happy that the cat hasn't inspired me this week. I've been reading accounts of BlogHer, how people have been inspired to write better, to think better, to be better. It's making me nervous to write I guess. Only one way to rectify that, now isn't there?


1. The dog has arthritis. She's slowing down. It's scary.

2. I'm afraid of what this month's electric bill is going to be. We've had more than one heat wave and the dog is really reacting to the heat so I don't want her to suffer.

3. They really should put warning labels on kids' books. I picked out the best looking book for Little Seal's last story of the night on Saturday. I don't know what it was called, something about Good Night Little Creature or something, I don't know. It's animal moms telling animal kids its time to go to bed. Third from last is Good Night Little Snake. WHA? HUH? GAH! I think I covered my freak out pretty well, my voice only went up about an octave and I didn't scream when I slammed the book closed on my thumb.

4. Kenny Johnson (above) is very, very pretty.

5. Tonight I was singing through some stuff from old shows and I had the idea of doing a special cabaret show as entertainment at next year's BlogHer. Wonder how one would go about that.

6. MobileMe still doesn't work right. It seized up for huge chunks of today. Apple can bite me.

7. I found out yesterday that Audio Girl was a Buffy fan but she missed the series finale. So today I brought her the entire seventh season so she can refresh then enjoy the finale. I can't wait to talk to her about it. It's so fun to see someone experience this for the first time.

8. I'm formulating my guest post for Chili's blog next Tuesday. In my head anyway. See above re: actually writing.

9. I keep meaning to ask Mrs. G if I can be a Slow Cook Thursday some day. If I qualify I might be the only Slow Cook participant so far whose perfect Sunday morning doesn't involve going to church.

10. My dermatologist is MIA. I have the info to track her down but I'm starting to think why fucking bother.

How was your Tuesday?

    So sorry about the book! I honestly can't think of any other books Little Seal has that have that particular animal in it, but had you asked me ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have remembered that it was in that book either!

  2. It makes me smile that you are willing to pay more for your dog not to suffer. You are truly kind.
    I haven't had time to sit down and post through all the new links your posting... blogher and what not but I will.
    Thank you for not letting be behind the curve on the internet.

    We've got that book. The snake didn't bother me any. (They love their children too, ya know!) What bugged me more was the HUMAN child(ren; can't remember if there was one or two) at the end. Curly-haired insufferable moppets who look like they say things like "Mummy, will the sorbet be served presently?" Now, that one freaked me out. If I had a kid like that, I'd trade it for the snake.

  4. I wouldn't trade those kids for the snake but I agree, they're the next most creepy animal in the book.

    Miflohny, not your fault. You didn't know I was going to pick that book. Sorry I didn't put the books back, either but I didn't feel like I could disturb the intricate to-bed process.

  5. Gert, seriously, the dog ate a full meal and then some tonight for the first time in some time and it made me so happy I almost cried. Only part of that is from PMS.
