YAY Ginger, and Allyson's cover. I am going to have to replace the old, less good that is up on my office wall.
Natter 52: Playing with a full deck?
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
Yay cover! Maybe I'm the only one, and that would be too bad, since I don't really need to be sold on it, but the Fresca comparision alone would make me buy it right away!!
Hooray for cover!
Wow! That's a great cover -- I like it even more than the one I saw a while back. Yay Allyson!
New thread! good name?
ION, Matilda: still cute. Also, very intently working on her wry and quizzical faces. Which just makes the cute more unbearable.
eta: Rocking cover, and such tasty blurbs!
If you could be any species of penguin, which would you be? Besides Emperor.
Biyi already calls me an emperor penguin (dìwáng qĭ’é, or 'supreme ruler of geese standing on tiptoe, if anyone's interested), so I repudiate your restriction. But who'd want to be one anyway? Is winter in Antarctica that attractive? King penguins get most of the glory and better living conditions. Of course, I'd probably go with Adelie, who also do the Antarctica thing, but they're awfully cute.
Or else those penguins with the weird colored feathers sticking out of their heads.
Rockhopper, macaroni, royal, snares, erect-crested. I think fjordland too.
Fairy penguin? That's a kind right?
Yup, and can be seen on Phillip Island a couple of hours' drive south of Melbourne. Now strictly called the little penguin, or blue penguin in New Zealand.
Full list: emperor, king, gentoo, adelie, little/fairy/blue, chinstrap, jackass/African/black-footed, Magellanic, Humboldt's, Galapagos, rockhopper, macaroni, royal, snares, erect-crested, fjordland, yellow-eyed.
Great cover, Allyson!
And (ETAdd: just outside the) top 20, which is (ETAdd: still)the best I've done in forever.
billytea, what are the really stupid ones we saw in Cinci?
Oh, and latest on Teddy -- took more blood tonight. He wasn't happy, but he didn't seriously try to bite or claw anyone, even when the vet had to poke a second leg to get a proper vein.
9.5 pounds, which means he's stable even if underweight (last June, he was around 11.75). His red blood cells are up, but he's still anemic. His prednisone dosage has been cut in half. The rest of the details should be available tomorrow.
