Pain in the butt week. Two Mondays ago our one rat had a tumor removed in his leg. But it was wrapped around his nerve so he lost some use of the foot. He must have caught it on something because he started bleeding bad. We have him in a wrap and it's getting better/not bleeding quite as often, but now that it's healed some it looks like the bone is sticking out of his toe. Brought him to the vet yesterday and they took x rays. the last two bone is his one toe are gone. We and the vet are concerned he'll keep walking weird on it and ripping it open so we think we are going to have his leg removed. Pain in the butt.

We do have the best vet ever though. We've loved her ever since we started bringing our animals there.
$50 to verify tumor (office visit price)
About $500 to have tumor removed and sent in for analysis.
$0 for trip to vet hour and a half after they closed to look at bleeding. Vet tech was there, he left whenever they left, went home and made a leather booty for our rat.
$40 next morning but that was for needles and IV to give rat at home from.
$0 for visit yesterday to look at bone sticking out and x rays.
And $0 for the leg removal if we do it. She's just doing it as a part of the tumor surgery since it didn't work out as we had hoped.

Eh?  Chatting with yourself Nick?   ;)

I was "talking" to anyone who has read the comics and would know what I meant and to myself  ;). Guess it doesn't ruin anything now, (just in case you don't want to read this) ................................  but yeah in the comic Shane was about to kill Rick and then gets shot himself by Carl just way earlier on in the story. Kind of a coincidence I chose to read the comic and think it would be weird without Shane and then he gets killed in the show 2 days later. So conversation with self over (at least online).

I won't say much in case this still happens at a different time in the show, but I just finished reading the first volume, sorry I don't know my comic terms well, Graphic Novel (the first bunch of comics together in one book) and holy crap that was different. I can't even imagine what would be happening in the show if they hadn't done it differently.

That was a coincidence. They just waited a little longer in the show.

Someone on RS claims to have found the Scuba set at Target. That has to either be a mistake, a lie, or just a bizarre fluke.


Has anyone heard/seen the Scuba set or the other new one since this RS post?

Looking forward to picking up "Apocalypse" tomorrow. Interesting to see how this series ends. Kind of bad timing for my reading schedule right now, but I'll force time somewhere.

That makes the win the Vikings had in Week 15 against the Skins all the more painful...ugh, losing AP and 3 first round picks, brilliant!

I'd have appreciated it if you hadn't pointed this out.

Glad I read it so I know a little more about Revan now. The book left me feeling like I didn't get any sort of closure whatsoever, but I realize that's because I haven't played the KOTOR or TOR games. So that's my fault.

Time to move on to something non SW until "Apocalypse" comes out in a couple weeks.

Hopefully season 3 will be them in Canada with no zombies, just living life. I bet the people that hate that they've been on the farm this whole season would love that.

Rick had the cold weather thought at the end of this last episode.

My search of the internet has done nothing other than make it look like I'm trying to look at Japanese porn at work. Does anybody know when the Jaina Solo "Bishoujo" statue is supposed to come out? I've seen 2nd quarter and 3rd quarter 2012 but that really doesn't mean much.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Picked up a really nice condition vintage Obi Wan on a repo 12 back card. Not the most exciting score, but I don't have any real 12 backs so that sold me.

Where at?

Cedar Cliff Collectibles in Eagan. Fun store to visit every once in a while.

Speaking of which, went back and grabbed the ESB original figs in really nice shape on repo ESB cards of R2 w/ sensorscope, Leia Hoth, and Luke Bespin. Didn't have them so I caved. Works really well as a way for me and my OCD to keep my "official collection" being stuff in the package and yet adding vintage stuff without it being expensive. (Don't ask me how my OCD justifies things.)
