the "tink" of
her golden rings
rocks glass is
the one thing
i will always
okay, so it is far from a writing binge. in fact, it is one of the shortest poems i have ever written. but it has been stirring and forming in my head for the past two hours. so it had to be written down.
between seroquel and naproxen, i got five hours sleep today. that's on top of the two i slept last night. i'm debating doing the windows install at dawn and sleeping now, since i just took a pill and am out of pain. the worst thing is, i can't suck my thumb. and it hurts to smoke.
yesterday, as i slept, chewy stepped on my neck and i went to push him off and ended up hitting myself in the face, in the tooth. i screamed. it was awful. i have to remember that lesson. and hopefully chewy will, too. i scared the crap out of him.
i met a bunch of people today when i took chewy to the park. he got to meet a lot of dogs. he was afraid of all but the chihuahua, which was the same size as him. i explained he lived in a houseful of cats and was used to critters that size, and i brought him to the dog park to socialize him with larger critters of his own kind. they told me the park was a great place to do that. then chewy and i went on alone to the dog park and i let him run around. though he really doesn't run around, he walks around and i follow him with the poopie bag.
when we get a few dollars again, i want to get him the small tennis balls doc showed me and teach him fetch. it would be a great way to get him to expend energy. i really do wish he was a bit more energetic. so i figure i need to stimulate his mind. he's taken to his felt ball. he chews on that when he's in a mood and the cats won't play with him. he does get exercise besides the walks. he chases the cats around, gets chased around by the cats. then there's the hilarious times when doc is cooking and he runs back and forth between me in the living room and doc in the kitchen.
what's left of his balls is so sad. when a cat gets neutered, his testes retain the shape of balls. they just aren't as big. with chewy, the tissue has just shriveled up like a wee raisin. and he won't stop licking his schmeckle. i'm trying to get him to lick the itch and leave it alone. it's really annoying when he comes up and sits on me and starts licking his junk like it's going to fall off. i don't sit on him and lick my junk.
okay, enough putting this off. time to back up the few pictures and two videos of doc's and get on with this reinstall. it would be nice to have a working laptop for doc when he gets home. plus some stuff didn't install well, features of certain programs (windows programs, i might add) don't work. i suppose i could format it and do a clean install, but i really don't know how to do that and i'm afraid i'll fuck it up. another dirty install it is, then.
