NSPy accidentally (so he says) knocked my bedside glass of water over this morning at 5:38. That's earlier than I normally wake up and also earlier than I was going to get up today (I've decided that I need to leave the house a little earlier because the traffic on Rt 16 is heavier since the weather got nicer).
That's not the nicest way he's woken me up lately. I'll have to find a water bottle and start using that at night instead.
Also, he's still being a little fussy about eating. He likes it best when I'm in the room with him when he's eating. He does eat when I'm out, but not as much.
[Janet did this and the questions were fun, so I decided to as well.]
Jana is the Getting to Know You hostess. This week, her last, she says: After a month of giving you all nice themed questions, my inner ADHD child rebelled and insisted that we ask questions that we REALLY REALLY wanna know about our fellow bloggers! So here are our completely and totally random questions for you:What did YOU eat last? Last night, I had some cashews right before bed. I just woke up about 5 minutes ago and am waiting for the cat to finish eating so I can give him his insulin and then shower. Then I'll have breakfast.
What about YOUR love life? Anyone special? Tell us about him/her! There's a really wonderful man in my life. I'm very in love with him.
What is it like where you live? The street we live on is near Main Street so it's a pretty busy street. The house is an old one, with *very* creaky floors. Very. We're on the third floor, which is great for us. :)
What are YOUR favorite features about yourself? I'm a really good listener. I can also be a good talker, but if you're a friend of mine and need someone to talk to, I'll be there for you.
What deep thoughts have YOU been pondering upon? The fickleness of the universe.
List 2 random things you love about life: I love learning more about people in my life and I love living near Boston.
How did YOU find out about CAC? Through Janet.
What do YOU love most about spring? All of the greens of everything starting to bloom. The flowers. Even though it means my allergies are harder to control, it's so wonderful to see things come back to life after months of naked trees.
Spotted on the T this morning: A woman twirling her hair to put curl into it. It reminded me of those rag curlers from way back when (I don't have any actual experience with these things as I have curly hair already.)
The rowers are out rowing again today (they were out on Friday).
The Duck Boats are out too.
Last night I went to my first IMAX movie. We saw 300 and it was really good. I don't know how I'd do at a movie that is in 3D, but I did fine with whatever they did for 300. (Gee, sometimes I'm so technical. :p )
89. That's a little on the low side of normal, but the vet is very happy. Now we don't have to back for a whole month! :D
She's also happy with his weight and his attitude.
Tonight also included dinner with Tember and lots of random Arisia talking (SMOFfing in other words). I'll be working on the new site in my free time (I'll find some, really I will!) so that we can get it online in the near future. She's also convinced me that I want to go to Balticon with her (it wasn't that hard). It'll be fun. I haven't been to Baltimore for a loooong time. I just have to put in the time off request at work and get that cleared first.
Anyway, the furball missed me so I'm off to visit with him before I fall asleep.
Well, there's still NSPy. Suzanne is off in Australia until mid-May, so it's just NSPy and me in the apartment. NSPy is missing her and seems to want to eat when I'm in the room. Not always helpful of him. It's odd to realize that she's not just at work or out somewhere.
To make up for the quietness, I'm probably going to go to Target tonight and pick up some odds and ends to take care of some random crap that's been on the To Do list for a while now. That'll keep me busy and home (after I get back from the errand), so that'll make me happy and NSPy happy.
So that's tonight's plan.
In the morning, I got on the Red Line subway at Alewife (that's normal). I take it 5 stops to Kendall Square/MIT. Before each of the 5 stops, the train (the software, the train doesn't really talk) announced that we were approaching Davis Square. Five times. It's a good thing I don't doze on the T or I would have been really confused and probably have missed my stop.
On the way to pick up my car, the announcing software announced almost every possible stop on the Red Line in quick succession. So bizarre.
At 2 stops before Alewife, a guy got on with a boombox. He announced that he was going to provide a show called "one black man dancing on a moving train". He did a great job (back flips and all kinds of things) and got a decent cheer out of the evening commuters. It certainly put a smile on my face.
On the other hand, the drive from Alewife back to Cambridge made for less smiling, but that's to be expected.
