Day 9: an experiment

On the urging of the Kid, I performed an experiment with the cats today. Since the entrance of Oreo., Sybil has been living in my bedroom, mostly in the vicinity of the radiator, which she hides behind at night when Oreo is in the room. When I'm not home, I shut Oreo out of the bedroom, and she has the whole room.

The Kid convinced me to switch them around, shut Oreo in the bedroom and give Sybil the run of the rest of the apartment. So I did.

It was not a fantastic success. Oreo scrabbled at the bedroom door and yowled to get out, while Sybil climbed up on top of the kitchen cabinets and stayed there.

The Kid says to keep it up longer. I don't know.

But anyway, aside from that my day was the usual round of reading, and puttering on line. Of course I Skyped the FWiB, we were interupted after about 45 minutes by a call from his wife, but he Skyped back afterward and we talked for a further 15 or so minutes.

I called the Kid and told her the experiment wasn't working, that's when she said to give it more time.

I texted a little with [personal profile] mashfanficchick, which was nice.

And at 8:00 I watched Keith Olbermann read Thurber. Tonight, The Catbird Seat, and The Unicorn in the Garden.

Now waiting for Oldest Brother to make his nightly call.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The Kid.

3. Hearing from [personal profile] mashfanficchick

4. Good books. Still working on Dragonshadow.

5. My cats.

6. Peanut butter for lunch.

edited to add: I know what else I did, I did a training for work.

  • I'm getting the vaccine tomorrow!

    At least, if all goes well I am. The Kid persevered, and managed to find a place with open appointment slots. Of course, it's all the way in…
