04:25 am - up because I'm down?
The wire on my glasses broke again. I'm not sure if this is the same side/lens or not. It's annoying either way. So I'll head in to Lenscrafters today before my DBT appointment. I'm glad I have contacts, although right now I'm using my prescription sunglasses.

I'm in sort of an odd mood this morning, sort of unsettled. Tired, but having trouble sleeping very soundly; hungry but nothing sounds good to eat. The cat is being demanding, which is ok except it makes it difficult to type. She must be disgruntled as well, since nothing I do to pet her is right, and she sighs at me with great irritation. And gets even more huffy if I stop.

I think our cat's are related Ten years and I still haven't learned to pet her just right. And then I go over to babysit my mom's cat and I can do no wrong, he just plops down on my chest with his arms around my neck and purrs like a harley. If he wasn't such a dedicated mouser (okay, anything smaller than a badger really) he'd be the perfect therapy cat.

Now she just had a brief interlude of "oh yeah, I love love love you" wherein she purrs like an engine and anything goes wrt petting as long as she can drape herself over my chest and lap and arms with maximum impedance to whatever I'm trying to do. This usually lasts about 5 minutes, but it always ends badly because she wants to get off me via walking on the keyboard, and I insist on closing the lid of the laptop or otherwise preventing this path of exit.

In an informal tally I've been keeping, it is starting to sound like male cats are more likely to be the lap-loving purr-monster types, and female cats tend to be the ones who show affection by walking across your sensitive bits with the full-on gravity augmentation. YMMV, tho.

You know, I think you're right about that. Rivka does eXtreme-kneading (especially on top of bladders first thing in the morning). Alisdair likes to sit lumpen and drooling. If our laps are unavailable in bed, he sometimes tries to drape himself across Eleanor's head.
