This, that and the other thing

Nude dancer did not come nor call. The trash comes Monday. People comb the alleys for stuff before the men arrive, so most of his stuff will be taken before. We both feel a little guilty about it even though our logic overwhelmingly supports this act of heartlessness. It's just crap anyway, crap he's done without for 6 months already.

Sara continues to, well, continue. She's getting lots of fur around her muzzle and paws and this makes her look "old". Her sight is so bad, she can't see if the screen door is closed and walks right into it. Her ambulatory condition is quite good at the moment, I may attempt a walk with her today. Also, her appetite and turds (had to squeeze that in, er, out, somewhere) could only be described as healthy.

I fell asleep watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire last night. I'll have to watch the last half again. One thing I hate about the HP movies is that they took everything with the elves out. No Dobby, no Winky. Did you hear about the Harry Potter world to be erected in Orlando? 2009. Mark your calendars.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

ND didn't show up? I'm shocked. Throw his junk out and don't feel guilty.
So glad Sara is doing well. She looks old because she is old. Your excellent care has extened her life by many years. Perhaps getting another dog now will give you a pet that new Sara as a friend and won't feel like a replacement.

Correction: Your excellent care has extended her life by many years. Perhaps getting another dog now will give you a pet that knew Sara as a friend and won't feel like a replacement. (Sorry my dyslexia is acting up)

I think a Harry Potter theme park would be so popular. I'd go! Would love to ride on a broomstick!

Enjoy your weekend and the walk with Sara.

Dobby is in the movies. When we go see HP in the theatres on opening night (which we always do) the girls comment all the way home about what the movie makers missed, the niggly little details I don't even remember about the books. They've read them over and over and over. That's why I love them and JK Rowling for writing them.

Devo and I were talking about Sara the other night and your desire to get a mini dashound, that might be quite a shift in gears, no? Going from a bigger, geriatric dog (that's what Murphy and I call her old dogs, the geriatrics) to a small, wired for sound, little dog. Then again, you're a risk taker.

I understand the twinge of guilt about ND's stuff. Still, as you say, if he hasn't needed any of it for the past six months, it clearly isn't vital for him.

Yeah, I didn't care for Goblet (the movie) as much as the other two. The deletion of the elves eliminated an important story-line for Hermione's character. Plus, I really, really didn't like Michael Gambon as Dumbledore. His interpretation of the character as a shrieking, cranky hippie just didn't sit well with me.

Ugh -- I know too much.

I think the omission of certain details in on purpose. People who have read the books will tell those who haven't that there is a lot they didn't see, thus sparking book sales.

I've become so jaded with contemporary media that everything is a marketing ploy to me.

You've been more than generous with ND so let his shit be used by people who might really use it.

And the ND saga continues. (I have to admit I'm going to be a bit sad when he is gone for good.)

Enjoy Sara and your time together. You're very lucky to have one another.

I missed Dobby, too. Harry Potter World? You KNOW I am going there.
