Lorne: Snakes? Uh-huh. And they came out of your what? Okay. Okay, well, did they get up there themselves or is this part of a, you know, a thing? No, I'm not judging...Do we fight snakes? Angel: Only if they're giant. Or demons. Or giant demons. Are they giant demon snakes? Lorne: Well, unless this guy's 30 feet tall, I'm thinking they're of the garden variety.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

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!!

The lost sheep grow teeth, forsake their lambs, and lie with the lions.

Hooray for cover!

Because books.

Wow! That's a great cover -- I like it even more than the one I saw a while back. Yay Allyson!

See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

New thread! good name?

Most excellent!

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!

You were a wrong baby who grew up wrong. The wrong kind of wrong. It's better you hear it from a friend.

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.

Ann, that's a ferret.

Great cover, Allyson!

And (ETAdd: just outside the) top 20, which is (ETAdd: still)the best I've done in forever.

Now tagless for your comfort.

billytea, what are the really stupid ones we saw in Cinci?

Ann, that's a ferret.

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.
