So, last night after The Big Bang Theory I decided to watch some movies - I had DVRed four/five yesterday, so I watched a movie instead of The Vampire Diaries. However, I did watch The Vampire Diaries this afternoon, but because I'm in a bit of a mood that may be coloring my impression of the episode.
(And, no, I did not watch The Secret Circle last night, but I discovered this afternoon that while I had deleted the previous episodes off my DVR I apparently did not tell my DVR to stop recording new episodes of the show - so last nights is sitting on my DVR, but to be honest I'll probably delete it without watching.)

Anyway, if you just want to read the quickie review skip down to the cut.

So, I finally had to take my babies to the vet - the dog desperately needed a nail trim (and a heartworm test) and the cat was biting herself and pulling her hair out. So it had to be done. And the dog seems to be walking better, and the cat (thanks to the shot) is resting comfortably not having to wake up and scratch herself every five seconds.

However, thanks to the little trip to the vet... Well, my dog has problems. Most importantly, she has two more chest tumors - she had one removed around the first of the year, which I hoped would be the end of that, but no now she has two smaller ones. She's also got the beginnings of cataracts (which I've suspected for about a month anyway), but it doesn't end there - one of her teeth is rotting (which is sadly another of those things that has happened before).

All that would be bad enough if I was still working but as most of you know I'm not still working. Nope I'm still unemployed, and while I've had a few interviews recently it seems clear that the companies in question chose someone else, and I simply haven't gotten ANY more calls. I do have a few applications out, and at least one resume sent for what would probably be a damn good job, but with my luck nothing will come of any of it.


So I am NOT happy, and that may have translated to feeling this episode was just not up to The Vampire Diaries usual standards.

However, I'm not planning to come back with a "new" improved review for this one (cause I am just assuming if I can improve my mood - by whatever means necessary, that I will clearly like this episode better), though I am planning to watch it again tonight after Supernatural
