Another Morning

(Original Post title, ''''', from Rannie. She won't tell me why.)

A morning which I am determined will be better than yesterday, which was generally spent in twilight, being very, very quiet.

Rannie the cat is weaving back and forth in front of the monitor, in a rare "pet me" mood. This morning, she was considering getting under the covers when Huck bounded onto and across my bed in a series of leaps; she suddenly remembered pressing business elsewhere.

H'mm, probably good advice, time to git. Elsewhere in the world, Colonel Gaddafi seems unwilling to discover pressing business elsewhere, possibly because he's got nowhere to go. --Even though he's a loose cannon practically out of a James Bond film, I have my doubts that what comes after him will be any less crazy.

Entropy seems stronger in the Middle East. Do you suppose all those years of civilization in ancient times have depleted the area of some critical nutrient? Something in the soil? I can just picture the Romans sieving up the last few bushels of common sense and works-and-plays-well-with-others and hauling it off to Rome to be sprinkled over the homes and country estates of the select few....

At a guess then it wasn't very potent!

Roberta: I hate to suggest this, but one of the changes I made to my life about a decade ago was that I stopped sleeping with cats. (Insert obvious joke here.)

My bedroom is a cat-free zone. This helped lighten the intensity of the migraines I was experiencing. The absolute worst of them was over after that.

Not an option.

I appologize if I offended you.

Roberta X said...

...That's unfair.

Here's the deal: I know when my "migraines" started; I know the cause. There is -- by direct experiment, multiple surgeries, and a very long list of meds -- absolutely nothing that will stop them. The best I can do is to control the worst effects. Sometimes frustration gets the better of me.

It isn't allergies.

I didn't know. Only trying to help. Again, I'm sorry to step where I shouldn't.

If this gets to you before the e-mail does, my copy of your book arrived today, and I'm very happy to see it!

I understand he's been using planes to strafe the protesters. I guess for a bat crazy tin horn dictator, at least he's staying true to form.
