Dragon Fire

I finished William Cohen's Dragon Fire this afternoon. It's a political, military, spy thing that I guess comes under the suspense heading. It's not great, but it's readable, especially if you like that sort of thing. I rate it "mildly amusing".

Barely alive

It's been a bad month for me. Dog number three damn near killed number two about a week after her initial attack on him. He's on the mend now, but she tore his little ass up good. Stitches, tubes, the whole nine yards. She's still here though. Now every time he wants out I have to chain her crazy ass up so she doesn't finish him off. Anyway, I've finally reconciled with the fact that she's here for the duration, unless I flip out and cap her. So I'm trying to break her of all manner of unacceptable behaviour. It's a project.

My grandmother has been deathly ill, or at least she's felt like she's dying for about three weeks now. Nothing helps. We've been to the doctor a few times. They've found new problems but can't seem to do anything about her nausea and dizziness (Meneire's). I love her, but I'm not sure how long I can hold out as a nurse, especially when it's this tough on her. I guess as long as I have to.

The weather has been pretty horrible. It's not so fucking hot as it can be this time of year, but it's hot one day and cold the next. Plus it's been especially dreary, even for this inflamed pimple on the earth's arse. I desire the desert.

Anyway, I'm feeling a little better, so maybe I'll have something to say one day. Maybe.
