Help

Last night my feline friend Squirt start getting sick and today we had to take her to the vet. They gave her some antibiotics and some fluids but are also running some blood work to make sure it isn't something more serious. She is perking right up so fingers crossed.

But as most of you know, the vet isn't cheap and unfortunately we don't have a lot of money. We paid the current bill but that does leave us flat broke until payday and w
e are tapping the relatives to get through until then. But if she needs anything further, I won't be able to pay for it.

I would be extremely grateful for anything you all could kick my way. If all you've got are well-wishes for Squirt, that's cool.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


UPDATE 8/5/2016: Squirt is continuing to perk up and her lab work came back all good. So looks like she needs is this course of antibiotics. So yay!

Calling All Whovians

 I wrote a bit of fan fic poetry of Doctor Who during Thank Muse Its Friday. I was fine with it when it first got done but re-looking at it, it feels off. And not just because it's kinda of depressing through that's part of it. I think it's because I don't have a good grasp of the characters and the world.

My apologizes to siliconshaman for being subjected to amateur hour. Is there a rule that all first attempts at fic in a new series must or should end up in the crud-I-made-while-learning-to-write bucket?

I've seen the show before but it was a couple of years ago. Those handful episodes were often stumbled upon in the middle of the episode and involved at least two different incarnations of the Doctor.

Since Doctor Who is on my going-to-watch-this-series-for-real-sometime-gosh-darn-it list anyway, does anyone have any recommendations for newbie to get a feel for the world and its characters? And as well as any good episodes that no would be Whovian should miss?
