Monday's whines.

1. I wish there were a TWOP-style site for public radio. Sometimes, I find myself wanting to discuss episodes of This American Life after listening to them.

2. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon, and I’m slightly profoundly terrified. Never underestimate the depth of my dentist phobia. But my teeth aren’t in good condition, so needs must.

3. I really, really hate Secret Santa gift exchanges (in part because I always go overboard – or at least put some thought and effort into it – yet I somehow always get impersonal junk from the person who drew my name. Maybe this makes me selfish. Oh, well. I should give up and start buying crappy, cheap lotion-and-loofah sets from CVS.)

4. Robert Carlyle will star in the new Stargate spinoff. Hmm... is there some kind of Trainspotting magic wand? Kevin McKidd and Jonny Lee Miller are also on American TV. Kelly McDonald has been nominated for quite a few awards in the past few years. And we all know about Ewan McGregor. The law of averages has been very good to that little movie (my all-time favorite.)

5. My emotional health has taken a beating over the past week. I don’t know if it’s PMS or just the usual Christmas angst, but I’ve been feeling really sad and lonely. Hopefully, it’s one of those two reasons, because then it’ll go away soon. Either way, I’m ready for this to be over.

The Cat Who Ate Christmas

So, I have this cheap 18" Christmas tree on my TV stand, as a half-hearted effort to get into the holiday spirit. I was just waiting for my cat, Queso, to knock it off. Sure enough, he succeeded tonight -- then proceeded to attempt to eat the branches. (Here's the original, in case you want it for any lolcats hilarity.)
