Sophie's doing just fine and dandy now - she was apparently really, really constipated for a couple of days, and lost some weight because she was too uncomfortable to eat. But yesterday and today she's been pooping normally, inhaling hay by the bowlful, and gobbling up treats. I think she'll be OK. We just have to run her to the vet again on Monday to be weighed, to make sure she's not still dropping weight.
I wish I'd brought the camera to the vet. We stopped to let Sophie romp around in the grass on her new leash, and she was dragging Richard around just like a dog would. Then she'd flop down, stretch out her back feet, and nap in the sun for a while.
The car now has so much fur in it, you'd think we had some of those hairy seat covers that guys liked in the '80s.
After months of bullsh** withdrawal, Richard shelled out a few extra dollars a month to get Fox News just so he can watch Glenn Beck continue to lose his freaking mind. His show is like a stage production of Network. Particularly annoying are all the visual aids he's been using since moving to Fox. Is this because he knows his Fox News viewers aren't quite as sharp as his CNN audience, or does he just want to be the Carrot Top of political commentary? I dunno. Today, he actually laid out on the table in front of him a Twinkie, a glass of milk, and a glass of fruit punch. Then he proceeded to tear up Nancy Pelosi's comments about the bigotry and partisan violence she witnessed in San Francisco during the late '70s, without explaining the snacks. Finally, after he'd rambled for several minutes, he explained that they were supposed to represent Harvey Milk, Dan White's Twinkie defense, and the Kool-Aid of Jonestown. Srsly. It was like something a third-grade teacher would put together, if he happened to be batsh** insane and the kids happened to be unusually slow.
