Vomit, toilet cleaners and, oh, Merry Christmas!

So Gryphon get sick today. Nothing too bad I suppose...in the past he cost me close to $1000 in a week and a half (guess who has pet insurance now)...but today it was a pain-in-the-butt nonetheless. The reason he got sick and threw up three times was because he was flying through his food, drinking bunches of water, then running laps of the house. Every time he passed his food/water dish, he'd fill up some more. I finally got everything under control and scooped, scraped, scrubbed, and sanitized each area. Pitiful creature. Now he's just curled up here drifting in and out of consciousness; I gotta say, the life of a dog does have some attractions (the lounging, not the vomiting).

Start the drumroll...today I got my very first package up here...duh da da duh (imagine that noise and confetti flakes at the end of every spider solitaire game). It was very exciting...a toilet brush (following in Newbie's  footsteps), a Brita filter system (write something about expenses and - ta da! even an undercurrent of a request results in a gift), and a little baggie of something that really looked like pot. Weed. Dope. Marijuana. Thanks nanny!

...actually, it was the dill that I had asked for awhile back sans the bottle...

Right now I am happily waiting to drink some filtered water while I scrub the toilet. Multi-tasking.

And the biggest news of the day? My bestest of best friend - yes, the one I mentioned in my very first blog entry - is 90% sure that she's flying from Ottawa to Pangnirtung to hang out for Christmas! I'm sooo psyched...it'll be fantastic to have a visitor. I hope Pang gives as great a first impression in December as it did in August. Yay!

Well, back to work...the water's almost ready...

Great to hear that you won't be alone for the season. Going to try like mad to get up for a visit, but it's likely not to happen pre 2010 :p
