I'm A Reasonable Man, So I Know This Can't Be Snow
Today it was around the mid to high 30's. Living in a desert sucks.
This morning the dog was doing her excited dance and bouncing her little Yorkie ass around playing with the wife and fell off the back of the chair. I'm in the computer room checking e-mail and hear this horrible yelping that doesn't stop, it goes on into a whimpering, which means that my first instinct (that the dog got stepped on) wasn't true, so I go running in there, and K is cradling the dog, who finally stops whimpering. We sweet talk her a bit and then set her down, and she's limping from her right front paw, and only wants to be held in your lap, which almost makes me fucking cry, because she's so tiny and frail to begin with. I hold her for awhile and feel out her entire leg, which doesn't get any kind of wincing response, which I take to be a good sign, but she is still limping when we leave, K to a board meeting and I to go and decorate the sister-in-law's Christmas tree.
Five hours later we reconvene back at the house, our various errands complete, and little Bella (the Yorkie, for those not in the know) is thankfully back to normal, and bouncing off the walls again, happy to see us. I'm so relieved, because as small as she is, I'd freak the fuck out if we had to take her to the vet for anything major.
This afternoon I watched another Netfux film, Lucky McKee's The Woods, which was pretty spiffy, I even made time to bang out a little review for it for the old Big Suck Loser, which should be up and ready for your perusal directly. I also managed to finally watch a film that's been bumping around the old TiVo for literally three months or more, Broken Flowers, which was okay, but honestly not anywhere near Jim Jarmusch's best film. I guess everyone has a miss now and again, but this was pretty boring, even though the pacing and portrayal of workaday life wasn't that far removed from his previous films, this one just didn't grab me.
I also wanted to mention a magazine I randomly picked up while at Barnes & Noble yesterday, Domino, which is pretty interesting as far as decorating and style magazines go, in that it seems to be a nice blend of modern with a touch of traditional. It's been a long time since I really saw a magazine that I was very interested in as far as home decor goes, and the wife's subscription to Southern Living just isn't cutting it, so this is something I may have to throw down the $10 for a subscription to, just for the hell of it. I realize that this is a weird tangent for me to get off on (Even for a site as scattershot as this one), but hey, I am a floral designer, of course I'm interested in style magazines, sue me.
I think that my podcasts are all playing hard to get this week, because over the course of the past two days very little has accumulated to entertain me at the long workday tomorrow, and I already listened to the latest Hellbilly Wreckhouse last night, so I have pretty slim pickings to fend off the co-workers tomorrow.
I'm off to update the Amazon Wishlist for Santa, and then head to bed.
Be seeing you.
