hamster-cartoonElvis Has Left the Building

I found a link to this story in comments to an open thread at TalkLeft.  It details one father’s disastrous day dealing with a dirty diaper, a missing dog, and a sadly deceased hamster.

Fair warning: if you love hamsters, you may not appreciate the author’s antipathy toward the family’s “house rat”, but he had me — literally — clutching my sides trying not to laugh till it hurt. (It’s still painful to laugh, cough, sneeze, or even take a deep breath, but the therapeutic value of a good long giggle outweighs the pain. :) )

Jennifer, this one’s for you.

It’s the Little Things

sandwichI ate a sandwich for dinner tonight. Exciting, right? Well, it is to me, given that my diet the past couple of weeks has consisted entirely of chicken soup, yogurt, and saltine crackers.

So far, I haven’t been up to daydreaming about fajitas and a frosty margarita, but the day is coming. :)

So what’s happening in your world? Eat anything interesting today?

Neil Patrick Harris Wraps Up the Tony Awards with Style

Pain, and the relief thereof, have been occupying my time for a while, so it’s good to see something that makes me smile. I do love Neil Patrick Harris — he’s talented, funny, and by all accounts a really nice person. Enjoy!

Surgery

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

It’s been quiet around here lately because I’ve been a bit under the weather. After several weeks of poking and prodding, it has been determined that I will be much better off without my gall bladder. So that sucker’s coming out tomorrow.

Ironically, I may have more blogging time on my hands for the next couple of weeks. And I’ll be doing it under the influence of pain meds. Woohoo! :)
