Merry Christmas and all that Crap...

Fast, in bullets...

  • We celebrated Festivus with beers and the traditional Festivus dinner that included the Pepperidge Farm cake with M&Ms.
  • I got a Festivus present from hubs that rocks out.
  • Christmas Eve morning we were hung over from Festivus and I had LOTS of cooking to do. Oops, no wonder I screwed up the potatoes.
  • Magnus has kept me up for two nites in a row. Ulcerated eye...yes, again, other eye. So painful. We OWN a wing of the Veterinary Ophthalmology office here in town. This is his alternative to the lampshade! Looks like a hemorrhoid pillow on his neck. Poor guy, his left eye is killing him. I won't tell you what they did because it will make YOU wince.
  • Yes, you heard me, Veterinary Ophthalmology.
  • So far, Santa brought me all NON-sporting gifts for the first time in ages - a dress watch, not an HRM, a jacket, not for riding or running, gloves for cold weather, not for wiping snot from my drippy nose and more to come. Wow, this is pretty fun.
Hope you're having a GREAT Christmas! Look for me on TV tonite, we'll be at the Titans vs. Chargers game. Nothing says Christmas like football...OK, maybe not. I don't want to go to hell, after all.

Hey,
I give you crap about the Titans (but that is only because I used to live in Houston when they moved), but since I also lived in Nashville, GO TITANS!!
Merry Christmas

Bill said...

No, you had it right. Football & Christmas go great together. Besides, I hear Hell's pool is heated.

Here's hoping the Titans are the first team to start 0-6 and make the playoffs.

Sorry about the Titan's tonight. Well...not so sorry, we had a great evening watching the Chargers win :-)

I'm sorry about Magnus. I don't like animals being in pain, AT ALL.

Glad to hear you are getting some nice loot this Christmas. ;)

Merry Christmas by the way.

Merry Christmas!

Looks like some *serious* calories in that cake. So, you leave us hanging with the festivus prezzie from hubs. You know what Glaven would say about that.

Poor Magnus isn't having a good christmas; hope that gets better soon.

Hope that you and hubs had a great christmas and a super new year!

I know the Vet Opthamologist as well! my kitty had a corneal ulcer-spent many a $$$ on his eye!!

The game sucked last nite!!

We might be going to Arrington vineyards some time soon-will let you know!

I'm VERY impressed with your commitment to Festivus. It's rare these days, but a few of us still know what's really important at this time of year ;)

Tyger Lily said...

Poor baby boy :(

San said...

Give Magnus a big hug from me. Poor boy.

At the cake, good for you, I love pepperidge farm, it's unhealthy as hell, but soooooo goooood.

I stuffed myself with aunties strawberry cream pie on christmas day. Yummy. And right now I eat some chocolate I got for christmas from my grandpa.

He's the best, because he actually is the only supportive family member when it comes to my running and tri.

Enjoy the last days of 2009.

Kristen Lodge said...

I want that cake. I"m going to the store right now to buy one.

Mel-2nd Chances said...

Awwww, poor Magnus, and poor you! Read on your FB that you're sick again!! :( Take care of yourself! Too funny about the non-running related gifts!

Chuck said...

I hope Magnus is doing better. I love the cake. I am celebrating Festivus tomorrow night and think I have just found what I need to bring.

Maryland Girl aka Michelle said...

I hope Magnus is doing better. I hope you enjoyed Festivus and beyond, I know I did!

Poor dog. Do they think that he will eventually overcome this issue or will it continue for the rest of his life?
