Not really an entry. Need more coffee.
5:15 a.m. Alarm goes off
5:15:03 a.m. Alarm mysteriously shut off by sleeping hand
5:47 a.m. Realize I have to get up. Cat snuggles in under chin.
6:20 a.m. Oh shit! Realize I was supposed to call Jen at 6 a.m. for wake-up call.
6:22 a.m. Get up, feed cats, clean catbox
6:30 a.m. Lay on sofa with blanket pulled up to chin, cats snuggled in. Turn on TV.
6:31 a.m. Call Jennifer. "Jen, it's me, sorry I'm late calling. Cats, oversleep, etc." We grumble chitchat. "I'll call you back in half an hour and make sure you're up."
7:08 a.m. Call J. Back, no answer. Still on sofa in pajamas with blanket up to chin and two cats snuggled up watching morning news.
7:22 a.m. Jen calls. "I was in the shower when you called, getting ready, cannot fucking believe I have an exam today." Me: "Well, you're doing better than I am. I have to leave my house at 7:45 to catch the last bus and I'm still on the sofa watching TV."
7:24 a.m. Realize have missed bus, am not in shower, and I have to give Roy his medicine
7:24:30 a.m. Complain aloud about having to make a CAT take not one but TWO pills
7:25 a.m. Try to reason with Roy. Explain that he must go in and take his cat pills so he will never have to go back to the vet. Also tell him how much cat pills cost.
7:26 a.m. Reasoning fails. Roy not listening. Must get off sofa and force pills on him.
7:37 a.m. Roy thinks I am trying to murder him. He hates me.
7:39-8:07 a.m. Shower, pull on only remaining clean clothes for work, leave house. Hair wet. Plenty of time to dry in the CAR since I MISSED the bus. Roy is in a corner telling the other cats about how I'm trying to KILL him and how they must band together and kill me first. They listen intently. Except for Bob, who is staring at his own paw.
8:15 a.m. Trying to pour coffee in a cup at 7-11:
Guy next to me: Blah blahblah blah?
Me: ...? Did you say something? I'm sorry. I'm not awake.
Guy: Could you hand me a lid?
Me: You have an earring in your chin.
Guy: Uh... huh?
Me: Did I say that out loud?
Guy: Uh, yeah.
Me: I have to go now.
9:05 a.m. Arrive at desk. Stare at keyboard.
Boss: Did you get my voicemail about the blahblah blah blah?
Me: No, I was late, there was a chin ring. And cat pills.
Boss: You need coffee.
Me: I have coffee.
Boss: You need MORE coffee.
