Kero asleep

That Darn Cat

Around midnight, Buddha's incessant cries out in the hall got to the point where it was quite clear I wasn't going to go back to sleep until I did something about it. So I came out of the bedroom and downstairs, put the anti-claw armor (i.e., a towel) on my lap, and picked him up.

Instantly he curled into a faceplant and went right to sleep. ¬.¬

In order to make sure he got good and deep into it, I let him stay there for a while and finished up Wednesday's Suburban Jungle, covering him up with the towel to keep the light out of his eyes. 45 minutes later he was quite sedate as I set him down on the chair and went back up to bed.

I can't see how parents do it. My little midnight excursion made me feel like crud this morning until I decided to call in late to work and sleep an extra hour-and-a-half. The idea of being up at 3 a.m. for feedings (etc.) on a regular basis ... yikes. *shudder*

The ones I really can't understand are the ones who are cartoonists and parents. And often they have pets as well.

What are you people, crazy???

My Sexy, Sexy Voice

This crazy throat of mine never sounds the same from one day to the next any more. Earlier this week I sounded almost like my old self again and could even do a few of my usual catalog of funny voices. Today, I seem to be channeling Fats Domino.

I wonder if I should run out and market a recording of "Blueberry Hill" before my voice changes again. I'll tell you this much, tho ... if I hold a coffee mug over my mouth and say, "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed: the ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force!" I get people popping up out of their cubicles looking around for Sith Lords.
