It’s a lazy weekend. I do not want to think, therefore I choose not to think. I’ve expended too much wasted energy in thought lately. Better to go numb.
Clueless had a check-up at the vet’s yesterday. He’s eating better, and gained three ounces last week. I still have difficulty wrapping my mind around the idea that I once celebrated taking pounds off this animal, and now celebrate putting ounces back on. Life can be weird. The current regimen of Baytril seems to have done the trick, or at least improved things. He’s got a little over a week to go on the antibiotic, and then we figure out where to go from here. The vet is now saying kidney function, but I’m not completely buying into it yet. His numbers just weren’t that bad to produce the vomitting and lethargy we were seeing. Still, the bottom line is that I don’t care what it is, just so long as we cure it. And CW is doing better, at least for the moment. I’ll hold onto that and continue to hope.
The Socialist purchased a copy of Shrek 2 on sale yesterday, and we watched it last night. I can’t say I thought the “new surprise” Far Far Away Idol ending was any great shakes, but it was funny enough to watch once.
I think I’ve got a new favorite Pixar film though. We went (at my insistence) and saw “The Incredibles” on opening night Friday. I can’t think of a single reason that anyone would not totally love this movie. I know there is a “multiple-view” requirement on it for me. There was just too much too fast, and I know I missed a lot of jokes. It’s an action movie, a family values movie, a state of the world movie, and the best damned animation movie to date, all rolled into one. Maybe this was what Bush meant when he said the nation all had to unite again, and unite behind a common cause.
Meanwhile, back in the real world, the best part of fall is coming to an end in our parts, and the prelude to winder has begun. There are still a few trees out there with crowns of ruby or citrine out there, but the winds of the past week have largely denuded the majority of the trees. This year’s garden has been uprooted, and the morning glory vines stripped from their fence. We’ll be moving in late winter, and this weill have been my last year here at this apartment. I felt a little sad about that, but I’m anxious to be gone at the same time. I’ll have more land, a bigger place, and a shorter ride to work, and all this for less money, so there’s no reason to stay.
Besides, the place has a spiral staircase. The cats are going to love that!
