Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope it’s been a wonderful week for you, & that you have lots of good stuff to share with us today. :img5
This week, I AM HAPPY that I finally got Miss Bella back to the veterinary for a follow-up bladder tap & urine test, & everything came back clean as a whistle! No crystals, no cloudiness, excellent pH levels… All’s good, & the doctor gave her a thumbs-up stamp of approval. Woot! I’ve certainly noticed that she seems very happy & healthy & active lately, but it’s good to know that everything’s healthy on the inside, too. :img10
I AM HAPPY that I finally got my hands on copies of two of my favorite movies—Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters & Stuart Saves His Family. Although Stuart is a bit hard-to-find (it took me until this past year to realize I liked it enough to own it on DVD, otherwise I’d have probably bought it long ago), I’m a bit of a stickler about collecting movies I love. Yes, I want them, & yes, I could probably buy them the minute they come out on DVD…but every time I do that, I inevitably turn around & discover them in the $5 bin at Walmart or something. Grrrr. :img28 So now I tend to hold off on the grabby-grabby thing & wait to find them at a really decent price. Especially since…join me if you’re with me on this one…I also don’t tend to watch them very much once I actually own them.
Don’t judge me for that! I love my movies, & I’m nearly obsessive about having them on DVD “just in case,” but there’s always so much on TV, so much recorded on the DVR, & even so many repeats of my favorite movies on TV, that I don’t often need to break out the DVDs. Why bother buying them on DVD, then? you might be asking yourself. To which I answer: Because, dammit—just because! DON’T. JUDGE. ME!!! :img25
I AM HAPPY that Chiller Channel has been replaying the horror series Fear Itself. Granted, it’s not a great series, but some of the episodes are really decent, horror-wise. One that I don’t remember seeing when the show first came out is “Skin & Bones,” which is about a Wendigo. And I only really “got” it this time around because of my obsessive love of Supernatural. So I AM HAPPY that Supernatural has taught me things I never knew about before: Wendigos…salt & burn…bad things do live in the dark…
Notice, by the way, how I refrained from screaming Dean & Sam! Dean & Sam! Dean & Sam!
That is what we call self-control, my Darlings. Self. Control. :img29
And finally, I AM HAPPY that I’ve been able to start reading the A Shiver of Light, the next “Merry Gentry” book by Laurell K. Hamilton. I really enjoy this series, though I have to admit that A Lick of Frost is still by far my favorite of the series so far. But it’s been a while since there’s been a new “Merry Gentry” release, so I’ve been looking forward to starting this one. I hope it’s good! :img19
