Long Monday

I was so busy Mon­day, and so wiped out, that I actu­al­ly scrib­bled this out on paper and just now (Thurs­day) got a chance to type it in.

We had Hope until this morn­ing, which was nice. But then she left, which I knew would hap­pen, but it still was­n’t as nice. I miss her! Kioshi did final­ly decide that she might not be so fear­some, and per­mit­ted her to offer scritch­es while he stropped her ankles to mark her. I fig­ure that made Diana (Hope’s dog) very curi­ous when Hope got home!

The only good that about her depar­ture is that she had to leave to come back, right?

Katie had an appoint­ment, then we ran some errands, then we came home and col­lapsed. Pret­ty bor­ing, all in all.

Still Thinging; Date Night

I am, in fact, still keep­ing up with Thing-a-Day! I need to go post over there, though. I do wish I could auto­mat­i­cal­ly cross-post, but if wish­es were fish­es and all that.

I stitched tonight while Sam and I gamed. I also wrote for a while, ear­li­er. Sam and I have recent­ly begun par­tic­i­pat­ing in a forum that does a great job of encour­ag­ing intro­spec­tion, and being a safe place in which to express one­self. It’s a pow­er­ful thing, and I’m in awe of the peo­ple who cre­at­ed and run it.

A Cappella Music, Babylon5, and Firefly, Oh My!

This after­noon, I opened the blinds on the win­dows behind my chair, think­ing it would draw Kioshi off the mon­i­tor (his tail kept obscur­ing the screen) to look out the win­dows. Nope. He turned around, so at least his tail was­n’t in the way, but he was inor­di­nate­ly pleased with him­self because he could then sur­vey his world from his nice, warm perch.

I down­load a ridicu­lous num­ber of pod­casts, then for­get to lis­ten to them. I can’t find my MP3 play­er, and it’s tiny any­way (512k), so it does­n’t hold much. Sam has the same kind, and he gets by, but he’s more moti­vat­ed: it keeps him sane while he’s “out there” every day. I nor­mal­ly take the lazy way out and lis­ten to Pan­do­ra or Last.FM.

Wake Up Cat

Ded­i­cat­ed to The Girl

Kioshi is not allowed in the room when I’m try­ing to sleep, because he either keeps me awake, or lets me get just into sleep, then goes on a tear knock­ing things off every sur­face in the room.

But the girl—let’s just say he might real­ly want that base­ball bat!
