the afternoon's accomplishments

I've crankified the cat by attempting to take a nap - I lie down, she comes and lies down next to me, cleverly pinning me to the bed through a quirk of the way the covers are folded. Having become horizontal, all sleepiness of course departs, and after ten minutes or so - just giving Xiombarg a chance to get really settled in - I attempt to extricate myself without disturbing her. No luck, and I am treated to a disdainful sigh and an earful of muttered invective.

Despite this accomplishment being primarily successful due to my current lack of firearms, I nevertheless feel it worthy to be counted. I have summarily refrained from all possible types of ejecta, including bananas, pointed sticks, and very small rocks, all of which (in contrast to a high powered rifle with a sniper scope) are at hand. Yes, well. Maybe I'll give that nap another go...
