It's Friday! It's Friday!

Some of you asked when I'd see my niece again in yesterday's comments - It'll be this summer. Hopefully, she'll come down for 3 weeks like she did last summer. I talk to her a lot on the phone but that's not that same as hugging on her!

I'm off on New Year's Day! Woo hoo! Unfortunately, I have to work til 9 p.m. on New Year's Eve but 3 hours should be plenty of time to ring in 2007.

One of my friends sent over some fudge yesterday. Holy crap, Batman, it is good! Have you ever heard of Key Lime fudge? Me either but it is tasty. I just had some of the peanut butter flavored along with a glass of milk. *insert lip smacking sound here*

I am so freaking glad that today is Friday! Surely the day will go by quickly. I've got a new book (Stephen King's Lisey's Story) to read at work and that helps the time pass. I'm about half way through it and I really like it. I'm actually reading slower than I need to in order to make the book last longer!

Poor Stinky and Tiny are getting over a minor flea infestation. They were bathed thoroughly yesterday and Sweety's going to bomb the yard for fleas today. I feel bad because for the last 2 days I've been snapping at Stinky to "quit fucking scratching!" and at 3 this morning it hit me to give her some Benadryl. Now we have one sleeping, not scratching madly Stinky dog in the corner! Tiny is too small for Benadryl so I gave her a placebo (rolled up cheese) and it seems to have worked for she is no longer scratching either and is asleep in Stinky's armpit.

I got Lisey's Story for Christmas and I haven't started it yet. Is it as sad as it looks like it is going to be?

Glad you at least have a visit with the niece to look forward to!

I was wondering about that book also. Please give a more in-depth review. Maybe compare with one or two of his earlier works (of which i'm much more a fan of).

Have to laugh about giving Tiny the placebo.... you always crack my shit up Chickie! I think we are karmic twins or something.

A Very Very Happy New Year, Dear Dear Chickie! May 2007 be the BEST YEAR EVER for you and yours...
Poor Stinky and Tiny....Fleas for New Years! Oh The Joy!
Give them both a BIG hug for me and Sweety, too, and save some for yourself!

Patti_Cake & Amy - I really liked the book. It's along the same lines of Rose Madder or The Talisman. It had a nice tidy ending too. I liked that. For me, it was kind of slow at the beginning but it picked up pretty quickly.

Mike - A bit of hard pizza crust works wonders on them too.
