Cats Of The Southern Hemisphere.

Little Foo has developed very strong opinions about getting-up time.

She has taken to not just cuddling up to me and purring, but climbing on me and off me. Well. Jumping really.

She now also circles my body, although she mostly seems to jump over at just below my knees. She includes my head in this. She climbs on to the pillow, noisily negotiates the lumps and crevasses, pointedly brushes against my face (it feels pointed, anyway) and contines down my other side.

And this morning, when I was sleeping quite close to the edge of the bed with my knees up, she just did a nice big cat leap over them. And continued to circle.

For some reason, mostly clockwise.

I am feeling sooo grubby today.

Cancelling things left, right and centre.

But I have just done enough of that sort of thing that I don't *have* to leave the house until next Wednesday.

Want to streamline everything, would also like time to stand still while I do this so I don't have to spend the rest of my days on this.

Alternatively, I wish I could find some of those jobs - like updating my digital library and doing backups of CDs and stuff - as soothing as playing Minesweeper all night.

And I just filled in my census form. For those who aren't from round here, there was a big cock up with the census, and much complaining and stuff. It was to be done mostly online this time, but needless to say the site crashed.

So everyone's got a few week's grace, and I went from filling it out online to deciding to do it on paper (because a nice man from the ABS came to my door and delivered me one).

Pleasingly, by the time the next census comes round my old home will be far back enough in my past that I won't have to look up the postcode.

In fact, I'm rather chuffed that I needed to look up the postcode. I think that's a good sign.

I just took LovelyMan out for brafternoon tea. We weren't there early enough for brunch.

WTF?

I have just run all my fishtank water tests on tap water that's been sitting out for 24 hours, like the fishfancier forums suggest.

FISHCollapse )


Frankly, I'm looking forward to getting my tanks sorted. I've been on this learning curve for a while and I am ready for a break.

But I've got at least a couple more days of having two fishtanks on my kitchen table, at least one more expensive trip out for new things next week, and a few more weeks of obsessive testing and adjustment.

Oh blast. I have brain fever.

That's where I start the day feeling lively and chipper and later on realise I'm like a 5 year old hyped up on red cordial.

It's nearly dark and I've yet to mess about with my fish.

I do hope pond slime isn't poisonous.

Oh fucking hell.

I'm trying to get my head around fishtank water parameters and it's TOOOOO HARRRRDDDD.

Memo To Self:

Reading in bed is fine.

Taking notes while lying on one's back is not fine.


My torso hates me.
