For those of you keeping score at home...

Last night Lucy, who has been very anxious with Mel gone, ate a box of biscuits she's received as a present for Christmas. The whole box.

So this morning Jamie woke up just in time to witness Lucy horking up the undigested portion onto the sofa. So poor Jamie had to go to the vet with Lu while I figured out how to clean a sofa. Visitors to League HQ will be glad to know that while it did take the better part of today, we have a very clean sofa to sit on. Probably cleaner than at any other time you've been here, honestly.

So far 2009 is not turning into a banner year. I think I will be crawling back into bed and waiting to see what 2010 has in store.

Lucy is feeling much better, by the way. Although I am noticing she's still a bit off her game.

Jeff the cat remains, as always, Jeff the cat.

My extended holiday from work is now over with, and tomorrow morning I return to the salt mines. I'm actually looking forward to the distraction and getting into my groove again at work, once it is I remember what I do for a living (more than a long weekend away, and I usually need an hour just to sort out where the water cooler is located).

All of this work business has largely been put into perspective by a combination of the past week and a viewing of all of Season 1 of the BBC sitcom "The IT Crowd". If you work in IT, especially in an environment which does other things but relies upon your IT team, I highly recommend tracking the series down.

At this point, I am not expecting UT to win their game tomorrow at the Fiesta Bowl. I'd love for them to win. I will be rooting for the Horns. But... you know... it's just been that kind of week.

Horking? Really? Horking?

I thought IT Crowd was really good. If you like it check out Father Ted, which is the same creators.

Also, the guy who plays the main boss in ITC is Chris Morris, who may actually be a genius.

Doug brought the videos with him, so I need to figure out how to get my hands on the rest of The IT Crowd, and I will certainly check out Father Ted if its in the same spirit.

Also, I have no idea what "hork" means. I just thought it sounded better than "puke" in this context.

Horking sounds like the noise dogs and cats make when they're puking. I suggest we add it to our vocabulary.

Did you know that Colt's girlfriend is a Baylor student?

Well, her fake tan makes her a proud shade of UT orange.
