I think I might not leave the house today… for once not because of being too tired (although I sorta am) or because I have too much work to do (I sorta do), but just because it’s an occasional treat not to have to get cleaned up and face the world. Looking and probably smelling like a baboon, I have already faced Rob and Goblin, so now I can just go back to futzing with my website and that will be that.
The big news of the week is that Goblin went back to the orthopedic vet, who wants to postpone her upcoming surgery to see if her leg heals on its own, as it already seems to be doing. While this sounds appealing, I’m skeptical: instead of a ligament or a steel plate, it will only be scar tissue holding her knee together, and that seems to be leaving it open to all sorts of problems down the road. But right now, she’s happy and (most of the time) using all of her legs, and the last thing I want to do is tell her that she will have to convalesce all summer when there are trees to be patrolled and flowers to be watered.
In other news, Rob wrote an alternative rock song for a potential new show. It’s really good. As this came out of someone who hates listening to my iPod playlists when we’re driving, you could knock me over with a feather. Hearing Mr. Showtunes discuss Green Day and Foo Fighters while he and his collaborator plan their approach has been amusing. I hope everything works out because I can’t wait to hear his tribute to Marilyn Manson.
