Obligatory "I Aten't Dead" Post

It's been long enough since my last update that I probably ought to post something here, but, man, I feel like I have absolutely nothing to say. Seriously, the single most exciting thing in my life in the last couple of weeks has been getting to watch new episodes of The Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time. The Walking Dead is, I freely admit, a flawed show, but I'm enjoying it, anyway, not least because Daryl is enough to make the whole thing worth watching all on his own. And Once Upon a Time... Well, it has become impossible for me to deny that this thing is kind of a magical soap opera, but, after an uncertain start, I've fallen ridiculously in love with it, anyway. It certainly helps that it features one of the best examples I've ever seen of the character type TV Tropes refers to as the "jerkass woobie": the guy you want to punch in the face for being such an asshole at the exact same time that you also want to give them a great big hug and tell them how sorry you are that their life is so awful. Apparently I'm a total sucker for those.

In other news, Nova was supposed to go in for his dental cleaning tomorrow, but when the woman at the vet's office told me I'd need to come in and pick up the antibiotics he'd need to take on Friday or Saturday, she apparently forgot they were closed this Friday and Saturday. Oops. So now he's rescheduled for Thursday, which might actually work out better with my schedule, anyway. (See, I told you. Not very exciting. Hey, just be glad I'm not devoting multiple paragraphs to complaining about said work schedule. Because I could.)
