So two people I know tangentially are in hospital in critical condition. 2014, you are officially fired (though I've told you this already). One person is a bicycling buddy of my dad's who was in a hit-and-run accident (and then hit by a *second* care while in a heap on the road, eesh). The other person I tangentially know through anime cons; more through friends/partner than through myself. They have underlying medical condition apparently and caught a particularly bad con plague and are now unconscious in ICU...which is kinda scary, especially considering that I was thinking of going to that particular con this year and I have about zero resistance to infections.

Hitting me emotionally in particular because of my aunt, and Rogue, and also there are a couple dead abused newborn pups that a dw friend had the good heart to try to rescue that I want to be able to magically revive.

Clearly time for good things. Yes, good things are a thing, yes?
  1. It is snowing but it is not a !ridiculousamount of snow, and it is not sticking to the pavement thus far. It just looks pretty.
  2. The birds are enjoying the bird feeders and it is fun to watch them.
  3. It is also fun to watch Haley watch dog TV (aka the birdfeeders), and go beserk when a squirrel encroaches on her turf.
  4. Going to attempt a Grimm marathon later.
  5. Therapy today! Much needed.
  6. Have I ever mentioned that tea is amazing? Yeah, I thought so ;)
  7. I can haz plans for a knit hat for partner made from some gray handspun BFL I spun...just waiting for it to finish drying before I swatch.
  8. Am spinning the most gorgeous targhee. I bought it pre-dyed and am very happy with how it's turning out so far.
  9. Might be a good day for fire in fireplace.
  10. Have tentative plans for crafty and/or fandom goodness with [personal profile] jelazakazone  soon!
Also also, in the continued adventures of Conversations Between Liz and Partner, we decided that there were not enough Star Trek:TNG episodes featuring Spot behaving like a real cat. For reminder, Spot is/was Data's cat and basically he just chilled in Data's rooms and let Data hold him with no scratching. Umm...what? Here are suggestions for additional Spot-themed episodes. Feel free to add your own...
  • Data, in an attempt to better understand animals, tries to teach Spot tricks. Spot ignores him initially (perhaps by licking butthole) but then proceeds to learn tricks rapidly. Data and other crewmembers are amazed. Troi is skeptical, and discovers that Spot is possessed by an alien lifeform that is able to mind-control its host. Blah blah blah subduing alien lifeform. Data disappointed that after alien lifeform leaves, all Spot wants to do is lick his butthole.
  • Spot goes missing. Data distraught, search ensues. Data goes through ship with Spot's favorite toys, cat nip, food, etc. No one thinks of air ducts until strange sounds heard from them. Spot discovered inside, killing/playing with invasive alien life form that is attempting to take over ship. Spot saves day! However, Dr. Crusher has to treat Spot for alien poisons. Spot looks smug and vomits hairball of tiny alien head at Data's feet as a victory present.
  • Data takes Spot to Holodeck to a program that is supposed to be specifically engineered for cats. It is made of laser pointers that dart across the wall. Spot pounces at laser pointers! However, person who programmed laser pointers is a Romulan spy that made a sequence of lights designed to render Data helpless until he is shown an alternate sequence of lasers. Spot gives no fucks when Data falls over, continues playing with lasers. Romulan spy kidnaps Data; Spot continues to give no fucks and plays with shiny points of light. Romulans escape with Data in ship. Spot gives fucks when his dinner does not come and makes MUCH NOISE until Geordi arrives and sees that Spot is alone in Holodeck and Data is missing, and his visor records and is able to analyze the light pattern. Rest of crew saves Data; Spot doesn't give fucks because he's being fed and cared for. When rescued Data says no more laser program in Holodeck; Spot feigns indifference and licks butthole
CLEARLY SPOT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE STAR OF TNG! The possibilities are endless! (Feel free to share if you are also enthused about the topic of introducing animals to shows with insufficient animals, and adding plotlines for them.)

OT: Thank you for checking up on me about all things house related today. Sadly, I did not make it through exercise class without being sad, but things seem to be moving along.

OMG the cat TNG episode ideas are fabulous! Gave me many much needed giggles after long day of testing (I have no idea what the writers of the bar exam are smoking but they should share!).

I survived first day of testing though. Whee!

2014 is totally fired!

Tea is most certainly amazing. Currently sipping on some choc-mint :)

And yay for other good things! It sounds like a lovely, cosy sort of day.

Those TNG episode suggestions really made me laugh--and that's no mean feat, considering what the day has been like. So thank you :)

TEA. And more episodes starring the glorious Spot would be delightful! ^_-

ETA: And the internet tells me it's your birthday? I hope you're having a lovely one!
