i fell asleep to the Godfather at 11 last night and slept until 4 this morning. more sleep than i've gotten in a couple of days. i feel pretty good.
no one is up. i think doc is awake, struggling with sleep. i keep waiting for him to come out.
i told him that since Red moved in, he has mostly ignored me, and i was perfectly happy with that. it is nice to have the attention turned away from me and my idiosyncrasies.
we sat out here on the patio yesterday for almost the whole day, listening to ani difranco from the stereo in the living room. all the people that were over next door came out on the roof to see what was going on. music and all. it was just the three of us chain smoking and talking. well, they were mostly talking, i was into the music.
i have a question for the cosmos: how come everywhere we go we meet mobsters? it's getting a little old. in my 30's, i was fascinated by it. not so much any more.
the sun started coming up so i took lelu and freddie "bop-bop". lelu wasn't that into it, sitting by the door the whole time. freddie took off and played in the rose bushes.
yesterday we let vader go bop-bop and he jumped up on the wall and began to make his escape. i mistook him for howler, so just let him go. luckily he came back to doc. who told me i was fired. meh. so vader is not allowed out anymore. he's too adventurous and doc isn't about to let him be an outdoor cat after what happened to jack. felix he doesn't care about, and howler is allowed out so he always has the option to go home to where he followed us from. he never does.
i wonder what today will hold. i vacuumed and changed the litter boxes yesterday and emptied the dishwasher. Red filled the dishwasher and swept the porch and tidied up the kitchen. she's so eager to help out. and doc keeps trying to tell her that i need to do things to stay active. speaking of, i'm kind of hyper, i think i'll go out and weed.
