Pushing Daisies


1. Doggy update 2: 90% better! She's using her foot normally now - even went on a short walk after staging a loud protest at being given nothing more than a 7-minute stroll around the yard - and only favors it slightly from time to time, so she should be fine. I suppose it was only a bruise after all. People can be hypochondriacs, but what's the word for when you get obsessively hyper over your pet's physical condition?

2. Last year, I was still relatively new to LJ and wasn't sure how the popular Christmas card exchange I saw everyone doing worked, so I stayed out of it. This year, after much hesitation, I worked up the nerve to randomly ask a couple of people, even though I didn't have any to send out. Next year? I've decided there is going to be a full-blown Christmas-card-exchanging extravaganza going on.

I can't even tell you how exciting it was to get the cards from aries11 and fiery_twilight - which I had sent to the house, and thus didn't get to see until yesterday even though they were postmarked the 5th - thank you both so much, they were lovely! However, I was especially delighted by the unexpected creativity of the latter, in a way where I had to share a picture:

3. It's been a week, how 'bout we finally talk about that brain-melting Survivor Gabon finale? Once again, I can't believe who won.

4. Speaking of things that melt your brain, I still haven't watched last week's episode of Pushing Daisies because 2x09 was so flippin' incredible that I refuse to move on from it, since I'm positive there is nowhere to go but down. I just keep watching the same brilliant scenes over and over and got me through Finals Week, people. I was spinning through it during every bus ride.

Ooh, also, my EW subscription started coming in last week - so those fantastic photos of the HIMYM cast re-enacting the greatest moments of 2008?   Are MINE, MINE, in full-color glossy form!  Wheeeeeeee, I love this magazine.  Especially when it is free.

Non-Flaily Stuff
MAN. I was so determined to not miss any days on the Neopets Advent Calendar this year...and then I end up missing about half of them so far, and furthermore circumstances are such that I go and miss both avatars and the Christmas paintbrush and the Key Quest Token AND the free Neocash. *beats head against wall*

Also: Numb3rs, 5x10, "Frenemies"

Oh, man.   I have even more, but I think it's time for a break.
