The One To Be Pitied

No, that's not The One To Be Pitied. That's the very first Sci-Fi Fanatic turkey ever made!

It's been a tough week for The One To Be Pitied [so I gave her a blog entry]. She had her appendix taken out after being rushed to the hospital on Monday. She survived. She's in pain though. I am waiting on her hand and foot and that is definitely usurping my blogging time. Recovery time is about 7-14 days and she tends to milk it every step of the way. You know how it goes. It's more like 14 days. Perhaps I should be the one to pitied. I'm kidding. I know people have it a lot rougher out there and I'm thankful for alot of things. Fortunately The One To Be Pitied will be around to torture me for a very long time. I'm also lucky to converse with like-minded people like yourselves. What we have in common far outweighs what differences we all might have. Now if we could only get everyone to agree. My aunt, whom I mentioned when I spoke about Majel Barrett Roddenberry's passing last Thursday from leukemia, learned the very next day her leukemia went into remission. Funny life. It's like Ying Yang on this planet. It really is.

Anyway, so I made my very first turkey ever because, well, because no one else was going to make it. It came out pretty good. It looks really, really good, but it was a little dry. I like the dark meat over the white meat. How bout you?

The Boy Wonder tried to teach his grandmother Bakugan. Apparently it didn't go so well. He told me in the kitchen with a smile, "I tried to teach gram Bakugan - failure." I laughed. He has given her a manual to learn the game for next time. Picture that.

Anyway, Christmas Eve was a fairly successful night considering I opened many canned vegetables and resorted to Ben & Jerry's for dessert. The way I look at it folks, life isn't always perfect and I'm thankful for the little things like, family and friends and Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 and....well, you know. I thought it was as good a time as any to get sentimental. I suppose I was moved by the spirit.

Hope you all have a nice holiday season and a Merry Christmas.

Well, I can't believe I'm getting thrown under the bus even as I convalese... so sad really.

So you all know, as I feel I must defend myself, I had EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING readied for our Christmas celebration. AND I have been participating in light housework duties. Your undies didn't get folded and put away by the laundry fairy, my darling.

Obviously I can't be so completely bed ridden as The Muser has had time to create and capture yet another Kirk and Bones adventure.. and another yet to be posted even.

Tough times...

To his defense, he has brought me dinner and lunch and coffee on a fairly regular basis, so bravo for that.

But moreover, he keeps me laughing and feeling loved. And for that I am always grateful.
