A number of weeks ago, We had Odin in for his annual vet visit. Teeth cleaning and this and that. He has what looked like a cyst on his ear.

I asked that they send it for biopsy. Stage I mast cell tumor.

The vet knew a vet at the U, and we quickly had an appointment for October. Within an hour, they called with a cancellation for September 26. We took it.

They took half his ear, and it had advanced to Stage II.

Stitches are out and he has a clean bill of health. although I suspect he has some self-esteem issues.

University of Minnesota, thank you for my dog.

Sad I didn't do Big!Bang this year, but am reaping the benefits of being able to read. Good job, everyone!

I defaulted on Big Bang. So.....

Is infinitely better than last year, save for a number of things that will continue to play out.

I defaulted on Big!Bang this year, and I am really sad about that, but it can't be helped. It's all on me; over-committed and under resourced as per usual. Cheerleading now for everyone who did not procrastinate too long.

Which resulted in a very terrible plot rhino.

My brain, welcome to it.

We had to have mom's old place cleaned out by today.


I have abandoned boxes of conversational language books, french, spanish, russian. Gardening never stood a chance. Himself and I had a huge argument about cookie sheets.

I'm done. Toast. Surely I have left behind the treasure of the Sierra Madre, but I just can't anymore.

Do not hoard. Someone will have to cull and discard when you are gone.

*looks at yarn stash*


OTOH, I have rescued the silver backed brushes, comb and mirror that were given to my mother's mother on the occasion of her wedding. Now, what do I DO with them?

ETA: $29 buy it now on ebay. Why did I kill myself over this stuff?
