Special Sauce

7 lives?

I think Evil's on life 7 or 8 by now- I've got quite the tenacious little (ok, hulking, even now) furball.

The prednisone and positive thoughts, are helping immensely. The cutaneous "thing" is markedly smaller, as is the "easter egg" in/on her lymph node. She's been pretty quiet, and hasn't left my room, but she skritches, and scoots across the floor when you pet her, and has been perching in the window to watch (and attempt to bite) the birdies...

In other news:
Today's the day I get to go to the gigunda library book sale, and I am fairly all atwitter. It's like free sample day at the local crack dealer's. Yesterday was the opening day (50th anniversary opening day, at that!) and there were over 350 people waiting outside when the doors were finally opened. Today will be a little calmer, I hope. Tomorrow, however, is when the best bargains are to be had. (the selection is slightly diminished but the prices make up for it) Books for 2.00/yard, or 2.00/grocery bag. When I'll be there today, it'll probably still be 2.00/hardback & trade paper, 1.00 mass markets. Still, not a bad deal. Tomorrow morning they'll be half that, and tomorrow night, the bag/yard prices. Can't wait!

Also, finally figured out this weekend's craft at the Codger Corral. We'll be making May Day baskets. We'll recycle tin cans for the base of the basket, and attach a ribbon handle, then fill them with flowers. (Most likely artificial, unless I get a great deal on real ones)I'll do most of the prep, put the hoops on for the handles, pre-cut the paper for the outsides, and insert the foam, but they'll do the covering, arranging, and presentation. I think they'll enjoy that, and it'll be neat to see them scurrying around on Sunday morning, leaving the baskets on doorhandles.

I recommend hitting ET's site, and read all about the PUF this weekend. It is damned interesting, and you will learn things.

Okay, it's official: I need a cigarette.

*takes a deep breath*

"TWO DOLLARS A YARD?????"

*grabs another cigarette*

*coughs wildly...nonsmokers really shouldn't try chain smoking no matter how hot and bothered they get about cheap books*

*puts down the cigarette and quietly keels over with a heart attack, wheezing out four final, blissful words...*

"Twooo...doll..ars...per...yard!"

*promptly achieves nirvana*

I know! It's madness! Madness I say!

I'll go today for sure, and may sneak back tomorrow for the really cheap stuff if there's anything I'm on the fence about. (It's amazing what you will buy when it's 2 bucks a yard.)

I LOVE the Overlook book sale. I do. I do.
