Previous Entry Share Next Entry
05:38 pm - Home Stretch
So, right, Monday will be my last of this posting-every-day lark. This, I regret, will be a perfunctory entry in the series, but --

Ten Things That Make Me Happy Today
1. Nice chats with colleagues
2. A lovely grey afternoon
3. A short walk with Master Danger in the lovely grey afternoon, his tongue out to catch the rain-touched breeze
4. Charles Dickens
5. Shopping my closet for a purple pirate shirt
6. The word 'verisimilitude'
7. Making a fort out of all this month's unread magazines
8. Lying about making a fort out of all this month's unread magazines
9. Carrots sliced thin
10. Sharing these carrots with Master Danger

I'll try to have a better entry tomorrow! May your day be overflowing with cool things to talk about.

Sad that you won't still be posting every day!

I only had one dog that liked carrots. The others just looked at me like I was crazy.

Master Danger at first sniffed disparagingly at carrots. Then he reluctantly ate a slice.

Now he's all CARROTS CARROTS SHARE SHARE. So that's nice. :)

Cheers, Cronopio, and thanks!

Yay for carrots. And you're right about a certain show's historical Issues.
Roz described the whole slavery angle they've gone with and, no, can't watch.

Actually the "slavery angle" was only a three- or four-line exchange in the pilot and is unlikely to be referred to again. But otherwise, yes, you would be driven mad. ;)

Happy...Thursday! Hugs!

It's already the middle of the week! That's the main good thing I have to say at the moment. :-)

That's a very good thing! :)

(Do you have an opinion on what/whom Ava's been doing on GH??)

Ava/Morgan!! I love it. Judging by the shrieks of delight in my Twitter feed, that opinion is widely shared... :-)

I'd missed a couple of days, so IMAGINE my shock when I tuned in, mid-sex-scene. ;)

Anyhoo, the GH regime is sure 'nough mixing things up!

They're mixing things up, and the ratings are going up! :-)

The only thing I have to say about today is that I'm reading Shirley Jackson's Life Among the Savages and I laughed so hard I nearly choked and died at lunch.

I think I read that years ago --

But more importantly, don't choke and die! :)

Hugs and a great Thursday, S.

Ah, the pirate shirt. It was wonderful!

Also, carrots are good. My mother's husky used to put her paws up on the counter and beg for carrots. Also broccoli, but I'm betting Master Danger wouldn't appreciate florets.

Hugs, and happy Thursday!

Broccoli would be better for Master Danger than apples, to which he's become addicted -- so much so that he went into the trash and found an apple core. I caught him before he ate the seeds (which are poisonous), but OMG.

Hugs and a great Thursday to you!

I don't have many uses for a pirate shirt :)

When I say 'pirate shirt,' I just mean a generously cut shirt with cool cuff details. No one else can tell. :)

Cheers and happy day-after-your-birthday!
