Daddy-Doggie Weekend Day One
With the dog acting so weird about her food of late, in addition to being freaked out that the wife isn't around, it should prove interesting to say the least. The dog has been put on a new food by the 'second opinion' vet, which she evidently likes, as she's been begging for it to the point that she's eating an entire can in a day, something that's normally prescribed for a 20 pound dog.
She still weighs 4-5 pounds. Well, at least for now.
We've begun to try and wean her back from the constant snacking, but we were so happy that she was eating instead of moping around ignoring food and starving that we just indulged her a bit much.
I started watching the complete series of Six Feet Under last night, as I've grown accustomed to watching a few episodes of something before I go to sleep and had that sitting around still unwatched. I've seen the first two seasons multiple times, but aside from the last episode, which I broke down and watched, I've basically boycotted the show until I can watch it in the proper order. I've of course picked up small details here and there, but I didn't have cable after the 3rd season or so and lost any sense of what was going on with the show.
The wife and I got up this morning and I checked e-mail and made some coffee while she showered and did a small load of laundry to get ready for her trip. We picked up some sandwiches and ate lunch with the Mother In Law, who was on a tear as usual about the Middle Sister and the Idiot Brother In Law. The details sketchy, the gist of it was that the MIL and the Middle Sister were both pissed off because the Idiot BIL had decided that instead of making his son's lunch today, he would come by at the allotted hour and bring him a hot meal instead of a sandwich. He then forgot to do this, so now everyone is pissed off and the MIL wants to go over there and yell at him and all I'm just wondering is why the Middle Sister can't get off her dead ass sitting at home and take him a Lunchable or what the fuck ever. The kid only eats when and if he wants to, which is annoying anyway, as they let him waste all kinds of good food because he doesn't want to sit still and eat a meal, but why is this such a big deal?
Yes, her husband is an idiot for forgetting his son, but suck it up and deal with it instead of sitting at home pissing and moaning about it.
And I don't ever want to come off like a big fan of the Idiot BIL, he's a total schmuck, but this kid has two parents, y'know?
Have I mentioned lately that I'd like to get sterilized so as not to have any children that this family could fuck up by osmosis?
The wife's ride, Scrawny McTall came and picked her up, I wished them both a safe journey and they headed out to pick up one other girl and then go to the airport.
I spoke to Macguffin on the phone for the better part of an hour or more, then finally decided to get to work.
I listened to the newest Dead Lantern Splattercast first, then squeezed in a new SModcast afterward. They're finally putting out new episodes of that since the new Smith film is wrapped, so that was amusing as always. I got two really solid hours worth of work done, I'll definitely get this first project finished tomorrow, but I'm of course a little disheartened because I'd normally be finished at this point, but this thing is a monster. Oh well, I wasn't bitching when the other ones came up shorter than usual, so I guess I can't start when there's extra work if it all averages out in the end.
I took the Yorkie for a walk late in the day since she'd been so good and quiet all day, I thought an outing might cheer her up. Once we got home she ate her food and I made myself a little cheese plate with some fruit for supper, since I wasn't really all that hungry.
I watched another film out of the Alain Delon set, I'm finally in the home stretch with that, so I think I'll start writing up some of the basic thoughts about each film, then give it a final pass once I get the last movie watched tomorrow. The Gypsy was what I watched tonight, with Delon sporting a strange mustache that reminded me of Franco Nero. This film featured the most involved plotting I've encountered in the set so far and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
I'm out kids.
Be seeing you.
