Headline News, Shorty-style

Disgusting Eye Crud Miraculously Cured! Yeah, sure - after constantly squirting antibiotic drops in my eye for a week. Still, I'm good to go and have no need for a corneal specialist.

Rice Krispies Treats Made from Scratch in New York Apartment! Um. Evidently that's news here. Everybody in my office thinks RK Treats come pre-made, shrink-wrapped, and ripe for purchase at the local convenience store. Boy, will they be surprised when I bring the fresh, home-made kind into work tomorrow! Yum.

Page-Turner Discovered at Book Giveaway! After plodding through my last couple of reads, imagine my surprise when I hit upon a ripping read free of charge at a recent book giveaway. Thank you, Madeleine L'Engle, for A Severed Wasp. It kept me up 'way past my bedtime last night. Can't wait to dive back in tonight!

Edge of Seat for The Uninvited/The Haunting, Asleep By Plan 9! Totally fell into Turner Classic Movies' Friday Fright-Fest, complete with popcorn and Julie Harris' nervous tics. Alas, Shorty was sawing logs big-time by the time Plan 9 hit the airwaves at 2am. But the popcorn was de-lish!

Favorite Scarves Mysteriously Disappear! Two of my blue-toned scarves have completely disappeared. The first went missing a month ago. Did I leave it somewhere? Is it folded away with the t-shirts or socks, out of my sight? I noticed the second scarf was missing last week. Is it stuffed into a coat pocket? Well, I turned the place upside down last night and can't find either one. I'm getting suspicious. But I don't want to falsely accuse anyone, so I'll leave it for now. Hmm.

Now you're up-to-date with the wild goings-on of Shorty. All the news that's fit to blog. Better than Faux News any day!

So glad your eye problem is okay...even if the antibiotic drops were a paoin...at least it stops there.

Two blue scarves...hmmm, some blue scarf fetish freak?

Take Care...

Great news about the eyes! It's hard to see how we could do without them once we get accustomed to having them...

Oh, the dreaded blue-scarf thief strikes again...

I wonder if they're in the same place as my pink jumper.

Glad your eyes are seeing clearly again.
