No discernible change in the condition of my pug, Maximus. He’s not eating and has been extremely low-energy (as opposed to his standard low-energy), but I’m heartened by the fact he is drinking water and perked up considerably this afternoon when some friends dropped by the house today with their kids. Maximus loves children and the second those boys were in the door, he was up on his paws, sniffing, tail wagging. I’m taking him to the vet for a follow-up visit on Monday and, as I write this, am on hold with Air Canada as I’m considering bringing him along to Montreal for the holidays. The trip shouldn’t be too stressful for him since he won’t be flying cargo but, if I can swing it, traveling as my carry-on. He’s by far the calmest of my dogs when it comes to traveling so hopefully this will prove a viable option should he not rebound from this recent downturn.
So, I figured I would get all my Christmas shopping done early and beat the rush. And I did. Or at least I thought I did until I realized I didn’t. So, this week, I wade my way back into the fray in search of scented soaps and gift certificates. The crowds are terrible, but the parking is even worse. For example:
In circumstances like these, I actually prefer to park in that nice, tight narrow spot, sliding in mere inches from them, and exit the passenger side.
Well, big football day tomorrow. And you know what means, right?
Yes, nothing says football like cream puffs!
Don’t want to get ahead of myself, but it looks like my Snow Monkeys may be poised for an upset in my R.I.P. Stargate fantasy football league semi-final. Romo is lighting up the Bucs D and, after much consideration, I decided to play Dez Bryant after all – and he rewarded me by scoring a TD. And we’re only at halftime.
Also on tap tomorrow, in addition to football, is the Survivor finale. I’m rooting for Coach. But if Ozzie can keep winning and make it to the final three, then I certainly wouldn’t begrudge him the victory. After that, it’s off to the Stargate Christmas reunion. No idea who is going to be there, but here’s hoping for a good turnout. Hopefully, if the pieces fall into place re: Dark Matter (December 14, 2011: Dark (Matter) Developments!) we’ll be able to get the band back together in 2012!
So, what’s new on your end?
