Saturday Stuff

And on the eighth day God said, "Okay, Murphy, you're in charge!" ~Author Unknown

Should have posted that quote yesterday!

Not much to say today, really... didn't do much of anything yesterday (to be honest, I was a little afraid to after the day before, lol), and I don't plan to do much today. I might start my taxes. Woot.

I did hear from the vet about Dakota's tests. Seems she has a pretty major imbalance of the good vs. bad bacteria in her system which causes digestive upset (this we know). So, the doggy doc has recommended we start adding probiotics to her food for a few weeks to see if that affects her tummy trouble. Probiotics for dogs... who knew? And, no, I can't just give her plain yogurt. Aside from the fact that she seems to be lactose intolerant, I'd have to give her several quarts every day to get the amount of probiotics into her system that I need to get in there.

After this treatment, we might be able to get her off the icky food she's on (I'm using prescription diet, which you would THINK would be awesome, but the first three ingredients are: cornmeal, cellulose and chicken by-product meal ... blech) and onto something healthier like this or this.

Ah, the joys of pet ownership...


There's a Nor'easter heading our way next week. They can't seem to decide whether it's going to be rain or snow, but either way, we're going to get WHOMPED. If it's rain, there will be floods -- the ground here is frozen solid. If it's snow, we're going to get BURIED. DH is thrilled about the possibility of so much snow. Me? Not so much.

Hawaii, here I come.


You Are a Jester

You are a natural entertainer. You can get a laugh from the toughest of crowds.
You make friends very easily. You tend to know a lot of popular, rich, and powerful people.

You are also good at playing politics. You know how to get along with many factions without upsetting anyone.
In modern times, you would make a good actor or world leader.

You Are a Playwright

You are a highly literate wordsmith. You love both reading and writing.
You are also a natural storyteller. You can turn a mediocre anecdote into a riveting tale.

You find people and all aspects of life fascinating. No topic is off limits for you.
In modern times, you would make a good filmmaker or novelist.

Well, I guess that works out.

Poor Dd. I hope her new diet will help her out. Who'da thought that animals would be so high maintenence.

I am so tired of this weather! I can't believe we have another big storm coming (though I didn't know it was going to be THAT big). I guess that means the kids will probably miss ANOTHER day of school!

I'm going to Hawaii with you!

You Are a Cartographer

You have a wide range of knowledge and you're very detail oriented.

You have a photographic memory, and you remember places very well.

Like a middle ages cartographer, you're also very adventurous and curious about the world.

In modern times, you would make a good non-fiction writer or scientist.

I can relate to the above.

Sorry about Dakota's results, hopefully the new diet will help.

I didn't hear about a Nor'ester. I wonder if we'll get something.

Enjoy your Saturday.

I am a Messenger:

You are a great communicator and quite persuasive too.
And to be honest, your also a bit of a gossip. You like to know what's going on with people.

You can deliver almost any message to anyone, and they'll take it better coming from you.
In modern times, you would make a good journalist or diplomat.

Okay.. that works for me :-)

This is very interesting, since I was one for years. How DID they know?

You Are an Astrologer

You tend to be a fanciful, spiritual person with many interesting theories.
You are always trying to figure out how all the pieces of the world are connected.

You have a knack for predicting the future and reading people.
In modern times, you would make a good self help guru or a director of a non profit.

I'm a playwright, like Ceri. I hope that Dd's problems can finally be resolved through this treatment.

Jester. That's me! I even have the funny hat!

Is the storm s'posed to be THAT icky? NOAA is only reporting a 60% chance of snow here.

My muse is lining up the murder in "Molasses Swamp". I've got a murderer and a victim. I have a motive and I have the fallout. I have the direction it will take my remianing characters. All I need is the actual method and timing.

Should be brutal or subtle? Hard to track or obvious. Should the killer commit suicide or slip away undetected?

Oh the FUN!

Good to hear that there's something that can be done for Dd.
Sorry to hear about the N'eastner. I hope it's been greatly exaggerated. *G*
I was a Playwrite. Hmmm.

Have a good Saturday.
