Happy New Year!

Holidays are supposed to be fun, right?

In case anyone wondered, the 24-hour emergency animal clinic is not, in fact, the most cheerful place to ring in the New Year. This afternoon, Dewey started throwing up periodically for no apparently reason. The first two times, I thought "Okay, he's a cat, it happens." After the third time, I started to get worried, so I called the clinic to get their advice. They told me to take his food away for a few hours, but to bring him in if he did it again. He did. So off we went at 9:45 tonight. After a brief wait, during which I called my parents to play the "Hey, guess which ER we're in now, Mom?" game, $200 of tests and exams concluded that Dewey appears to be in perfect health. But really, it was worth every penny to get the scary stuff ruled out. He got an anti-nausea shot, and has been okay since, so... we'll see. No food until tomorrow. And now we have a CD of nifty pictures of Dewey's insides!

So anyway, we got home around 11:45, and I just managed to turn on Dick Clark, change back into my pajamas (I'd put on jeans to go to the clinic), and make some adult hot chocolate before midnight. My throat still hurts too much for champagne or really any alcoholic beverage that isn't based in warm milk. So I managed to see the ball drop, and Robot Dick Clark try to speak. Depressing, really. Ah well.

Happy 2007!

Have I ever shared my theory that Dick Clark was never, in fact, human? Remember how he didn't do his thing in 2000? Yeah, man, they took him offline for fear of Y2K causing him to melt down and destroy Times Square.

Enough adult beverages for me tonight... happy New Year!

I am so glad Dewey is okay, Kat! What a relief that must be. There's still about 20 minutes here before the clock strikes midnight. I honestly didn't think I'd be up this late. Maybe I'll have some sparkling cider after all! My New Year's Eve/Day's are always on the bland side but that's the way I like 'em.

Best wishes in the New Year!

Ouch! That sucks.

Happy New Year...

Oh thank goodness he's ok. I absolutely hate when my girls are sick. It's such a helpless feeling.

Dick Clark was back? I grew up on his New Year's Eve show but I couldn't stomach Regis so I switched over to Carson Daly.

Sorry to hear about Dewey! Glad he is ok though.

Have a happy rest of 2007!!

Dewey just did that to get out somewhere on New Year's Eve. But he's too young to know that other cats in the emergency clinic aren't there to party. Glad he's ok!

Glad to hear Dewey is okay. Those kitties (and kids, come to think of it) can really give us a $care, huh?

Poor Dewey--I'm guessing that wasn't fun for him, either! Glad he's okay, though!

Happy new year.

I'm so glad Dewey is okay. Poor little guy! Not a very festive New Year's Eve for you, huh?

I am just so glad that Dewey is okay! That can be such a scare! Hope you both have a wonderful New Year! And, thanks for all the fun reads and challenges that you came up with in 2006! It has been fun!!!!

Glad Dewey's ok. Kids and pets! Don't they know to wait til after the holidays to get sick? Just kidding, Dewey!

Whew! I'm glad Dewey is ok. So scary, tho!!

Heh, I spent 6 hours of New Year's Day at the people ER with a migraine, so I can relate to Dewey.

Oh no! That's not the best way to ring out the old year, but it is nice to have a clean bill of health for Dewey for the beginning of the new year! Glad he's okay. Fun times on NYE.
