(But where are torrents for the new season of Sea of Souls? I needs me some Dawn Steele!)

And I hate this, and I'm very upset and worried. Without her, the house feels completely empty. Glad I don't have to work tomorrow, because I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep well tonight.
(And yes, she is just a cat. It's not like we stay up late discussing Proust over a nice bottle of red. But through all the changes I've been through in the past 8 years, from jobs and locations and schools and friends and relationships, even apartments and houses, she has been the one thing that's been constant. So if you think I'm overreacting, you can just keep that to yourself.)
Vet sez Penelope feels "gassy" but she's x-raying her to be safe.

Not happy 2 b @ the vet @ all. That makes 2 of us.
She ate the entire can of Fancy Feast tuna, but it's all still inside her. So, I'm calling the vet as soon as they open.

As the photo in the previous entry indicates (assuming Blogger posted it), she did eat some food when I got home. Her bowl of dry food appeared untouched, but I bought some canned food on the way home, to try to grease up her innards a bit. (Normally she doesn't get canned food.) She devoured about half a little can of Fancy Feast Tuna, and will hopefully eat some more later tonight.
When I checked her box, there was some poop to be found. Not the three days worth you'd expect, but at least something. So I'm a little less freaked. Which still leaves me plenty freaked.
The current plan: If she doesn't resume normal service overnight--I'll check her box in the morning--I'm calling the vet first thing. Ideally, the vet will say she can wait until Saturday to see her, because I don't want to call in to work with a sick cat. But, whatever it takes...
Still not eating her dry food but at least she has some appetite for the canned. And there was some poop in the box. Not entirely comfortable but I feel a bit better.
What restaurant doesn't have normal sized ketchup?

Anyway, as previously mentioned, the first episode of Hustle on AMC was pretty nifty. Of course, they premiered it with two episodes, so there's a second one already waiting for me. Don't know if AMC picked up the first two existing seasons, or just the first one, but the first two seasons are out on DVD in the UK, so either way, I'm set. If the quality holds up.
Just finished the "Casting Special" pre-season premiere of Beauty and the Geek. Some of you may remember that I went into this show last year with some pretty serious misgivings, swayed only by a positive review in TV Guide that said it basically was a lot better than the commercials made it seem. They were right. Here's hoping the second season maintains that same level of genuineness. Certainly in the casting of the geeks, they seem to have gone to the more extreme end of the spectrum, perhaps in hopes of even more good-TV Richard moments. We'll see... The season proper premiered on Thursday night, but I haven't seen that yet.
Saturday morning saw the premiere of Cartoon Network's new block, featuring new episodes of favorite show Life and Times of Juniper Lee and new superhero series Ben 10. Cartoon Network previewed Ben 10 just after Christmas, and it's a good kids' superhero series. Easily up there with Juniper Lee and Kim Possible. Check it out.

"Black Flame's first novel in a bloody new trilogy, Fiends of the Eastern Front: Operation Vampyr features historically accurate battles and all-out bloodsucking action!"
Well, historically accurate battles apart, one assumes, from the vampires.
And really, Russian vampires during WWII is a pretty neat sounding concept for a story. If you're starting with that, is it really going to be that much more of a selling point if the battles are historically accurate?
New comic I'm looking forward to...
Neither American nor a movie, AMC picks up the BBC TV series from the producers of Spooks/MI-5 and Life on Mars. Just watched the first episode, and thought it was great, though I am predisposed to liking con artist stories. Like I needed more TV to watch...
NBC already has Medium and CBS has Ghost Whisperer. Doesn't ABC feel left out? Or do they have a talks-to-ghosts show I'm forgetting about?
