But now we're doing liquid doses, twice a day, shooting what must be a truly foul-tasting mixture into her mouth. If things go well, it hits the back of her mouth and she's just annoyed; if it goes badly, the look of utter disgust she has when she gets it right on her taste buds is truly a thing to see and feel REALLY BAD about causing.
But instead of hating me and fleeing at the very site of me, Nuala generally is just kind of skittish and annoyed for maybe five or ten minutes. And then she's back for pets. I tend to go after her with treats and leave them by wherever she's gone to hide during her brief snit and she eats those pretty quick and then we're pretty much good.
Which means she's The Best (along with Liffey)*.
*Or that she has the memory of a goldfish...but I think it's just that she is The Best.
My cat Liffey is pretty much the Best Cat (don't tell Nuala who is also the Best Cat) because she is *so good* even when she really doesn't want to do what I tell her to.
Like just now, she walked by and I called her back, and for some reason she thought I was going to do something like check her for Klingons (this is not unusual as she is not the best at hygiene), but she just cried piteously in protest and waited for me.
Because she is SO GOOD. So of course I just loved on her because that's all I was going to do. It's been awhile since I've had to get her down and tidy her up, so maybe she felt she was due...

I actually went into someone's yard and hunkered down by their porch until the trees stopped threatening to fall into the street and then I ran the rest of the way home sopping wet. Made decent time, too.
Kind of a fun adventure in retrospect, but I would have preferred not to have had all the trees looming over me just this once.
And my shoes are completely soaked.

Mad Men was AMAZING tonight. I can't wait for TV Club and TLo to post their recaps tomorrow. So much OMG packed into one hour.

I ADORED Star Trek Into Darkness. Adored. I want to see it again. I will buy it promptly once it's released on DVD. Along with ACEN and the Doctor Who finale, it made for a wonderfully geeky start to a wonderfully geeky weekend.

I'm planning on quite the geeky weekend. After Star Trek Into Darkness and dinner with a friend on Friday, I'll be at ACEN (anime convention) in Rosemont Saturday. I haven't done ACEN in a few years, and I'm looking forward to seeing it all with fresh eyes after my time away.

Everything is greening and flowering up and is gorgeous. It's been winter-dry which has been giving us the warm/cool desert-style weather. So dry that my nose got very sore but it's raining now so hopefully I won't have to schlep my humidifier up from the basement again anytime soon.
- Current Mood: relaxed
I am not even sure what the cause is. My big toes get all sore and bruised/blistery feeling but I see no blisters. And yet I FEEL them and it got bad enough on this run that I didn't run the last half mile of my long run but limped my way home and stuck my feet into a nice soaky bath until they were prunes. No bones or ligaments or anything feel hurt. This is all surfacey pain that is caused by *something* not fitting or wearing right, but it is almost as frustrating. The weather was nice, I felt pretty good going out, my second mile was really good, and then it was all downhill from there.
I am super-annoyed but plan to head out to the running store tomorrow after work and see if I can find something that actually works.
