In Which I've Already Been Up and Working for Two Hours

Awakened by the early riser that is Man-Kitty, and unable to return to sleep, I have done the following:

1. Devised a tip sheet for my web-based course about how to use the chat function in Blackboard.
2. Reviewed FB's job letter, offering "suggestions" about how to shape the thing. I feel like Hermione Granger "editing" Ron's or Harry's essay for potions.
3. Worked on my own job letter, which is far too long and yet which, tragically, does not say all of what it needs to say.

And now I'm a) tired, b) without much time for a return to bed because my mom will call very soon, and c) hungry, even though I hate all food options.

I believe that I shall return to bed with the phone, so that I shall be able to answer the phone when my mom calls without having actually to move. I think it's really the only thing to do.

Oh yes. The kitty wake-up. Does MK stand and stare, or pat you to consciousness?

Well, he begins with the staring, I think, but it doesn't work. Then he uses the lead-foot method of pattering across my body, with some woeful meowing thrown in. If this technique fails to raise me to consciousness, he uses his last fool-proof method: running his paw over the blinds, which always works because I fear he shall break them. Note: when I move out of this apartment and into a home where I will buy my own window treatments, it will be a plastic-blind-free home.
