February 16, 2011

The rain makes us all smarter and dumber at the same time. It's the humidity perhaps,

This morning had three high points:

5:30 a.m. - 6:45 a.m. - Successfully ignored feline chatter aimed at getting me up out of the cozy bed and down the stairs where the kitchen tiles are cold but the fancy feast is still waiting patiently in its can.

[NOTE: Once feline roommates begin using their flexible bones and joints to mimic thumbed creatures, this problem will be solved. Frankie solved the meow mix access issue years go by creating a delivery channel in the bag with her teeth so the meow mix could flow like a river whenever she is around.

[Further NOTE: The dry food is now stored high above in glass jars. Humans 1, Felines 0]

6:45 a.m. Best part of the day so far, coffee. Yes, I still use instant coffee, and I still love my electric kettle more than I have loved every man I dated from 2005-2011. Not that I dated anyone this year but it's a logical assumption that if it happens I will still like my coffee maker more, as men in L.A. seem to consist of only 60% real man. The rest is 20% pre-adolescent teenage boy, 15% woman, and 5% marijuana and/or porn addiction.

I made coffee in the cold downstairs tundra and brought my mug back upstairs in bed where it's cozy.

7:15 a.m. Assessed the day. This consisted of looking out window to see if it's really raining like THE MegaDoppler of DOOM!!! predicted. Followed by some if-then logic, as in "If it is raining then I will not go outside and walk." or "If it is clear, I will maybe go for a walk." All this fancy brain programming decided, "If it is today, then I will knit and watch movies in bed."

Executive decisions have been reached, goals have been outlined for the day, success is a path clearly charted.

I love days like this.
