Every morning, and at noon, and then again at night, I am giving Tallulah a cacophony of pills in order to make her well. And along with that, I am of course worried sick about her, and the whole thing has me in a muddle, like the Good Witch. "I'm a little muddled." The Good … Continue reading The one where I try to kill Iris
This is the best picture I could get of Tallulah enjoying her a burrito last night. It's hard to feed your dog a burrito and take a photo at the same time. Need to go on Amazon and order the Indian goddess arms. So, I know I wrote briefly yesterday, but what happened was yesterday … Continue reading June decides to blame it on the boogie
The vet called. There's a growth at the bottom of her bladder that is either cancer or just a really bad infection. The vet is 50/50 on it. What we do next is give her a new antibiotic and see if that clears up her infection. We go back in about a week. Anyone who … Continue reading Update on Tallulah
Results tomorrow. Have you ever tried telling a sick dog she can't have breakfast, when all her brothers and sisters are merrily chomping away at their delicious brown kibble? Talu feel like Olibyr Twists. I may be a pain in everyone's ass and ask that another vet look at her ultrasound, so I don't have … Continue reading Taking Tallulah in for her ultrasound now
I felt distinctly unwell this morning. "Maybe you're pregnant!" said my hilarious mother, and I'd like to once again bring up Shady Pines. But speaking of Shady Pines, my...lady time did not arrive this month. There was no flying of the Japanese flag. I did not check into the Red Roof Inn, which does NOT … Continue reading Old paint
I spread this afghan on the new couch, so Miss Sickly could get up and sleep on me. ("Specially handmade for you, by Grandma" a tag inside reads. Aw. Gramma. Knittin' me an afghan in the '70s colors. I am so glad I have this.) The vet called yesterday to tell me that as a … Continue reading Animals are terrible people
On Sunday, I technically had three dates. Here I am at the end of the day. I look worn out. I know, man. When you've got All This. I think what really lures them is when they find out how many pets I have. Wait. You have a blind murder cat, AND a sick dog? … Continue reading Sluttus Americanus
Dis offend Edzul dellikit sensibilitys. We had something of a storm. It's not so much how many inches we got, which is the story of MY life, but rather that after it snowed, it then hailed, hailed, the gang was all here, and sleeted, and generally the weather was a dick. We didn't have work … Continue reading The one where it snows in North Carolina. EVERYBODY PANIC!
It's super cold and snowy here. And also too, remember when I put the computer in the back in November, when I wasn't thinking how this used to be a back porch? Yeah. Toasty. And don't feel sorry for that dog. He's already been in and out twice today. He wants to go in the … Continue reading Eight paws on my heart. What a jerk.
Almost 10% of college graduates think Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court. I just read that in The Skimm. Do you guys get The Skimm? Subscribe. It tells you the news in little flashes and tells you why it's important and so on. It's good for people who try to keep up with the … Continue reading June sees the inside of a vet’s office, for a change
That damn The Poet just came by and brought me two boxes of NutThins, and there goes my diet. Not that I remotely was on a diet. I'm just telling you, NutThins are the shizz. She got me the cheddar ones. Have you had them? I highly recommend as part of your balanced diet. She's … Continue reading Brown-eyed girl
If you have your Big Book of June Events before you and open to page 859, you recall that Tallulah has a urinary tract infection, and as far as I knew she wasn't even seeing anyone, so. The doctor gave her some amoxicillin, which by the way I'm allergic to, so every morning and evening … Continue reading The money Pit. Also, “ludicrous Puggle” might be redundant.
Ima go get the dog right now, then come back and nap because this was a stupid day. Tallulah had some health trouble today and ended up at the emergency vet, and I took a little video of her shaking a little, if you can even tell from it. The good news is she … Continue reading The one where Tallulah ruins June’s whole Saturday
Gone With the Wind was on TCM last night, did you watch it? I did. I thought I'd tune in to that movie for once, see what it was all about. Am I the only person who watches a movie 496 times like that? I watched it TWO TIMES IN A ROW the day before … Continue reading Belle Waddling
I thought we'd just show film strips today, what say you? God, wasn't that wonderful, when you got to school and they just showed you film strips all day? My elementary school was an old, beautiful building that I never appreciated because I was trying to not get raped by Cossacks (it was kind of … Continue reading Chico, don’t be discouraged
I couldn't blog this morning. But I did get to take cute photos of Iris and her eyeballs at lunch.
I went to Target last night to pick up my dog's Prozac, and right there is the saddest sentence ever uttered. It's right up there with Hemingway's whole "baby shoes, never worn" story. The point is, I ran into Ned, who is forever at that pharmacy and I should have known. The good news is, … Continue reading June runs late; behold her new couch
On Sunday, I went with my coworker Alex to see the psychic, the one from 2011. I don't mean the psychic was born in 2011, which would make her something of a prodigy. I also don't mean she's from the band Prodigy. I mean that I saw her in 2011, came home and blogged about … Continue reading June sees a psychic. Finds out the future. So after today you won’t have to read this dumb blog anymore. You’ll know what’s gonna happen.
Cat balance. Also, cats are part of your balanced breakfast. I had a date last night. I hesitated to blog about it, because I don't want Ned to feel bad, not that he remotely reads my blog. He's told me that since the day we broke up 4 months ago, he's looked at my blog … Continue reading Hot B in da howse
I am sitting at my writing desk, speaking into my phone while said phone is hooked up to the computer because it is only at 28% power. Hang on, I'm gonna get socks. OK, I'm back. These tiles are cold in the winter. I have on some sexy light-blue socks now. And my gray robe. … Continue reading June’s keyboard: 2014-2016
