Eroica

Gulp!

Which Stephen King Novel Are You?



Misery
In 'Misery,' an author is kidnapped and held prisoner by a rabid fan who insists that he write one last book, just for her. Oh, did I mention she's crazy as all get out? You're a fan of a lot of things, celebrities, athletes, rock stars. Did you know that the word 'fan' is short for 'fanatic'? Don't let your admiration for these talented individuals take over your life.

Funny! This is the one I usually identify with anyway -- but from the celeb's point of view. I have had some nutso fans in the past and have even been stalked before... Creepy, eh?

Snakes Can Be Tricky...

We almost lost Kaa today. And not in the way that ends you up on an episode of Cops: San Diego. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

Here at Casa Wolfgang, we have 4 small dogs, 3 indoor cats, 1 outdoor cat, 1 Lilac Crowned Amazon Parrot... and 1 nine-foot Columbian Red Boa Constrictor named Kaa. (Not to mention the flock of 15-20 Mexican Redheaded Parrots, 2-3 stray cats, ravens, crows, rats, 2 falcons, 1 -- at least -- coyote, and a young 'possum we'll call Teddy that hang out.)

Kaa lives outside in a sheltered terrarium with a large heat lamp, and in San Diego that would normally be sufficiant even in winter. Not the Ritz, mind you, but not too bad. Except that last night was verrrrry cold. Much colder than we sun worshippers expected.

I came out this morning with my 3 mini-doxies (Bon-Bon, Spike & Drusilla) to the upsetting sight of what could only be A Very Dead Snake. His body was still coiled under the heat lamp, but his head was lolling at the bottom of his habitat, jaws agape. *yikes* To make a long story a little shorter (and happier), Kaa was not dead as feared, just in a very deep hibernation (which doesn't mean he could have survived much longer, though.)

He's now in a cage under an electric blanket and looks world's better. Poor big goof. It looks like he'll pull through, but I partially blame Global Warming. (That and Karoshi-man needs to get him a Hot Rock like we wanted him to.) Kaa will be spending the rest of the winter inside, I think.
