Spring is here! Spring is here! Life is Skittles, and life is beer! Two great tastes that taste great together? Nah. But it got to about 70°F today. I'm very pleased about that.

It's been a while, so I actually had to look back at what I'd written recently.

On the visual front, my eyes are fantastic! I get some glare at night, but now it's no worse than when I had contacts. Wonderfully sharp it is. Also, with the astigmatism gone, I've noticed something amazing. What I thought was a slight case of dyslexia seems to have cleared up. I still get a bit, but the fact that the multiple image problem is gone has helped my brain give me the right info when I look at letters and numbers.

On the WoW front, Shimoyake of Terenas dinged 70 last week and got her flying mount, and is already 1/5 of the way to the epic flying mount. I really love the Lurkers guild. Even though I'm not on when the regular groupings happen, everyone's very friendly and I do get in on a lot of impromptu instances. I also got the AB2 and Water9 books from the guild, and they told me that if I didn't have enough to buy my wyvern, they'd force an interest-free loan on me. ^_^

On the room front, I cleaned my room this weekend. By that I don't mean that I shifted piles around. I actually got rid of a bunch of stuff, put other stuff in storage, and rearranged the window wall. I scrubbed any old catsick spots on the floor and swept the entire thing. I've never seen it so clean and tidy since before I moved in. It's actually in order enough that I'm not embarrassed to have anyone see it. With the weather so nice, I've been opening the windows to let the place air out a bit, too.

On the TV front, Heroes snuck up on me. By the time it was a phenom, it'd gone and had too many episodes. So now I've seen all of them thru episode 18. 19 might have been on last night... I did figure out Peter's power before he did. No, Dave, I don't think that Christopher Eccleston's character's name is really Claude Raines. I think he was making reference to the actor who played the original invisible man as a sardonic remark. Still, OMG HE'Z INVIZABEL1!!! I was totally wrong on Mr. Bennett. Very funny when Hiro got called Sulu; I yelled, "No, that's his dad!" Wow, almost everyone in the main storyline are connected in so many ways; what a tangled web they weave. Am I the only one who thought, upon seeing Gabriel Gray: OMG, Clark Kent? Mohinder is hot (the doctor, not the lizard). If Sylar gets DL's power, it's all over. It would be very difficult for Sylar to get DL's power. Mr. Linderman likes Jessica on his team because she loves a bit of the ultraviolence. Hiro and Ando, OTP. I'm sure there's more, but that's like 13½ hours of viewing. Also, I think Doctor Who comes back next month.

On the cat front, I need to get my babies in to see the vet. It's their annual checkup time. I should also see if there's something like an injectable steroid I can give Spot for her arthritis which is getting more and more pronounced. Ares did the cutest thing last night. I have hanging laundry bags, and he fell into one. I looked in and he's all curled up in there, looking up at me, Mrow? He did manage to pull himself up and out, but he was doing an impression of the "Hang in there" kitty along the way. I was literally ROFL. Spot still loves to be the water cat. I took a shower without shutting the door all the way and she was in there licking the walls. ^.^

On the icon front, I haven't done much recently. I finally got eliminated from the Blackadder LIMS, and I haven't done anything for about a month, I think. Either way, this means I can post up everything that I have, and I don't have to wait for any contests to end. Look for those at mandydaxicons shortly.

I think you need an Alliance alt on Illidan, that's what I think. :-)

You sound happy. I'm glad.

That's good to know in case Terenas ever blows up. What's your character? That Nelf drood? ~_^

Yeah, we suck that way. :)

Alliance? - Pfaugh. Easy mode. Pansy alliance scum!

Best part of Steamvaults: ganking gnomes. /evilgrin

There's a pill for arthritis - glucosamine, I think. That didn't work for Basta, so she gets shots - I forget the name. My vet didn't have them but gave a prescription to take to her old vet, which did (they have to get a big container and the amount they give for shots is small, so it was too expensive for the vet that didn't already use it to order in).

If it's really expensive, I'll check the Canadapharmacy.com price. They have pet meds, too, and I've already got free shipping.

No, not for you, it's not. For me it was very affordable. The problem is this: you give .1 cc every 3-4 weeks. The maker sells the vet a 100 milliliter bottle, if I remember right. At any rate, the vet ends up with this bottle that would (if it didn't expire, which it does) last you for the cat's whole life, including the part before the arthritis. Thus, I could only get it at a vet that recommended it more often and therefore sold to multiple people, since they had to put it into smaller containers for people to actually use.

Also, it has to be refrigerated, so I'd skip the shipping on it, if you can. I'm sure they do something about refrigeration, but....

Oh, well, in that case.. ^.^ Well, that bottle would last at least one cat through about 4 of its 9 lives if they live to be 15 each life. I see what you mean, though. I'll ask when I'm at the vet.

*grins* Got the name of it finally, what I have for Basta's called adequan. It's not the first choice if the pills will work, I don't think, but they didn't for her. It seems to work great for her.

Oh, thanks for that. I was given a liquid anti-inflammatory (basically Vioxx), and, while she lapped it right out of the syringe, she had an emetic reaction, so I stopped giving it to her. We'll see what else they have.

It really does feel like we have gotten some spring-like weather lately.
I figured you were probably enjoying it.
The other day I was driving and I saw all kinds of kids on bikes and scooters. It looked like a parade heralding spring :)

Yay, on getting your room cleaned. It is a great feeling isn't it? I need to do some cleaning myself.

I've seen tons of motorcyclists about.

I don't think it was a spring cleaning sort of thing, but yeah, it's nice to have all that area clear.
