Hello my lovelies. Sad to see rd95 leave, happy to see him go; stirred by refugee's all-caps breakthrough.

Good stuff all round.

I had a decent day. Got up, had coffee and cornflakes, read the news. Wrote, for a little less than an hour, on that book I've been discussing for some time. Whipped up a quick sponsorship sheet for this summer's barefoot mountain charity thing; booked bus tickets to Cork, to visit my friend. Went for a walk. It was cloudy but dry and the sun was trying. Popped into a certain pub for a coffee. Came home, had a sandwich, had a nap. Went to the shop, bought food and beer, made spaghetti bolognese. It turned out pretty good, which says a lot, because I can count on one hand the number of times I've cooked since last year. And now it's now. I tried calling my friend but he didn't answer. After this I'll probably go finish reading Moby-Dick, it's been on my bedside table, figuratively at least, for nearly two months.

Here's a photo of my cat. She came in a week ago with a limp tail; the vet gave me some antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory to deliver directly into the cat's mouth with a syringe. It's not an easy procedure. I do find it funny that she tries desperately to escape, but when the medicine is shot into her mouth she laps it up. I don't think I'd react that way to having a massive syringe shoved in my mouth.

That's what my cat does when he has a liquid prescription. How's she doing? Both my cats are getting medication for their thyroids. It's a creme I put on their ear flap. Neither seem to mind it. It's the best pet meds I've had.

I'm happy to say that she has now recovered nearly 100% of tail function!

A creme on the ear flap helps the thyroid? That seems bizarre for some reason.

Apparently it has to go on exposed skin, and then it's absorbed into the blood stream. My boy has been on it for a year, and his blood work is improved, so it's working!

I'm glad she's better!

I didn't see it happen... man... you step away for a SECOND and everything changes.
