heee! no worries about giving me something back - now that i have almost everything except the very earliest collectibles, i am having fun finding things and seeing to it that they go to good homes. i am finding that the time i used to spend looking for things i am missing i now spend trying to help others fill in their collections. whatever, it gives me a break from working on my dissertation! oh, and i am getting a joe flannigan movie called 'goodbye to harry' from netflix. (there's an earlier danielle steele one but i couldn't face that!) i'll let you know what i think!!

Ohai JAGFan! Here yesterday was rough, but today is a little better. We brought Tigger's ashes home yesterday, so that was very sad for me. If I can get out of work at a decent hour tomorrow, I'm going to go to the online Monday Pet Loss Remembrance Ceremony. It's a way of honoring our pets who have crossed over into spirit, and how their circle of life is complete here, and wishing them well in the spirit realms. I went there weekly for almost the first year after Grace died, and it helped me a lot. ~ I don't know if you realize it, but you did a lot for me. You were there to listen to me, even though I was practically a stranger, when I was really hurting. It means a lot to me. I hope your life is going so well I never get a chance to pay you back for your kindness, but if you ever need anything I will be there for you. ~ and yes, I finally got my thermometer to complete my Dr. TinyCat set. YAY! It's so odd, I had just posted to MoS how I was going to take a break from hunting for it, and then when I came back to my main page and *bang* there it was, 3 messages congratulating me for getting it. Totally unexpected! but very appreciated. ~ Wishing many blessings to you and your family *hugs* MelB

I must confess I've been eavesdropping on you and minerva99's threads re: sci fi shows and had to smile, I'm also a fan..I always think of FireFly when I watch Castle. I watched Saving Private Ryan again and the wrong Ryan was Nathan F. I was surprised at the variety of his work. Anyways, I almost sent you my extra file cabinet, but remembered your comment about an item you wanted to get yourself, and stopped...and sent this...I've been so caught up in getting extras I forget who I'm getting things for, or they get the item before I do, then it becomes a spare for anyone else...

Ohai JAGFan, thank you for your kind words about Tigger. It's been hard on me without Tigger's presence, even in the short time we've lived here it seems there's no where in the house that doesn't have a memory of him. but things here have finally started to feel a little better. I've got my 5 furry ones here and about 80 more at the rescue group giving me a reason to keep the faith. Again, thanks for being such a great CheezFriend *hugs* MelB

i'll have to look for that movie, tho i am a bit nervous about it... i like the sheppard character so much (especially when he's in scene with mckay) that i worry about another character changing my appreciation. since i found out what a jerk gerard butler and mel gibson are i find it really hard to watch their films. watching vala also changed aerin sun for me, as i find the vala character so annoying!

i so agree!! just can't find sg universe all that interesting. none of the characters are very engaging, and the conflicts all seem contrived and inconsistent, as if the writers just made it up from week to week. i liked the addition of cam, but vala just annoys me (they worked much better in farscape, which i recommend highly!). personally, i liked atlantis more, just slightly. i loved the sets, and the supporting actors were stronger. on sg1, the original team was solid and always interesting. on sga, you had the central team plus half a dozen other really well developed and engaging characters played by really talented actors. it made for more story leeway...

Hi JAGFan, thank you for asking about Tigger. Unfortunately, it turned out that all too soon it was his time to leave us. On January 21 2011, his 14th birthday, my precious orange tabby cat Tigger crossed the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness and a fatal diagnosis of lung cancer. I'd like to ask for a special favor - please say a prayer or send positive energy for Tigger, in hopes that he found the peace and pain free life he deserves to have on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you. ~ I still love all my CheezFriends but I'm really hurting right now, so I may not be around CheezLand as much, and I may not answer messages as quickly as usual. Thanks for being my CheezFriend. *hugs* MelB

Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm limping around much better on the ankle, almost could call it walking - though the bronchitis still has me feeling pretty sick. Worse though, after all the tests I've put Tigger through so far - the radiologist said the x-ray was "inconclusive". So after all that, we still don't know why he's so sick. There's a local specialty center that my be able to do further testing, our vet's looking into that now. *fingers crossed*
