The good news: my health is tons better today. I go whole minutes without coughing! And my aches are gone! And my stuffy nose ... um ... well, it's still stuffed up, but I no longer feel claustrophobic within my own skull! And I had the energy to do hours of housework! Huzzah!

The bad news: an Internet friend had to put her much beloved cat Stubby to sleep today. Okay, so I've never met this cat, but he looked a lot like Cobweb, and he had incredible heaps and loads of personality. She posted funny pictures of him frequently, and in fact that's what first led me to friendship with her. So it might not make any sense and more rational people might make fun of me, but this kitty's death makes me very sad.

Mr. Stubbins, my always adorable Internet friend. RIP. Mr. Stubbins, my always adorable Internet friend. RIP.

Okay, have you ever seen that scene in Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (excellent movie), in which our heroes (thieves) are trapped in a cage and bad guys (drug dealers) are shooting them in random body parts and the guys who get shot are complaining about it ... and then the lead thief guy grumbles, "Could everyone stop getting shot?!"? That's how I feel today. I don't want anyone else, of any species, to ever die ever. So take good care of yourselves, okay?

To cheer myself up, I will embed a YouTube video of that scene in LSaTSB:

I think it's easy to become fond of friends' pets over the internet. Pictures and stories endear us to various cute furry creatures and I know I feel a sense of loss when a friend loses a pet I've never actually met in person. I'm sorry for your friend's loss.

And Guy Ritchie movies rock. I haven't watched LSaTSB in a long while. I'll need to pull the DVD out and enjoy this week!

Glad you're starting to feel better!!!

Re: Thank you
Hi, Gina -

I wanted to also let you know that I've syndicated your journal here on LJ (http://syndicated.livejournal.com/gina_rss), so that folks here can follow your blog on their friends lists. I hope that's okay.

Thinking of Stubby.
