Good things and bad things
Hugo nominations are up.

Including Wonderful Neil in the Novels category, and the lovely ellen_datlow in the best short form editor category.

Congrats to them and to all the other nominees, many of whom also deserve a mention here, but I'm running low on time before Dad gets to my place to do some work (baby atmosphere not conducive to working, really). Am going over to Amanda's again for dinner and baby!excitement later today.

...

In nice news, I got a couch last night! It's used, but in good condition and a nice neutral color. I am pleased.

I also got an awesome belated birthday present from my friend Nathan. It is fantaaastic.

Deirdre is coming to visit me tomorrow. I haven't seen her in ages. Also, Nathan may be coming to visit next week. Yay, visitors!

...

In not-nice news, Rogue continues to deteriorate. Now she has lost some weight (despite force-feedings) and is not digesting properly anymore. Also, the vet thinks there has been muscle atrophy in the back end, and she's more apathetic. Since there was no improvement, even with medicine, in the first 7-10 days, the vet says it's very unlikely there ever will be any, and looking at her now, I wouldn't disagree. She's not a happy chinchilla. So, sadly...today, Dad and I are taking her to the vet to be put to sleep. I don't want to do it, but there's only so long one can tell oneself she's going to get better when she's so clearly not.

:(

Oh, I am so sorry about Rogue. She's been a very lucky chinchilla to have had you for her family & I know how much you love her.

I'm sorry about Rogue. It sounds like you're making the right, though difficult, decision.

*big hugs* It's always hard to lose a furry friend, even when you know it's the right thing to do. I will be thinking of and praying for you today.

I'm sorry about Rogue. Sounds like you're making the right decision, difficult as it is.

What they've all said...I've already had that experience too often, mostly with cats. It's never easy. But right.

I'm so sorry about Rogue. I'm sure she knows you care about her and don't want her to suffer.

Thank you for the link to the Hugo Award nominations. I hadn't even realized they were announced.

I just read The Graveyard Book last week, and it totally deserves to win Best Novel. Also, "Turn Left" should win Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. (Sorry, Joss. Dr. Horrible was nice but Rusty deserves it. You can win Best Graphic Novel for Serenity: Better Days).

I also have the unpopular opinion that Hellboy II: The Golden Army or Iron Man should win Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form, over The Dark Knight, but I doubt that will happen.

I actually kind of agree with you on Iron Man over Dark Knight. Not that I didn't love them both. But still.

I am planning to read The Graveyard Book once I wade through more of my backlog of books...
