My name is James - and I have a problem
My problems is being able to get my sorry arse up the stairs to bed most nights. It happened again last night. I was watching a film on some commercial channel with adverts every 15 seconds and a news break in the middle (but that's an entirely different rant) and just as the film finishes Sam comes and lays on my lap.

I turn the TV off (because if I start to watch another program it will be another hour before I get to bed) and I scruff the back of Sam's head for what seems like seconds... only to wake an hour and a half later on the sofa with the cat still in my lap. My neck is twisted at an unnatural angle, my brain is still in that in between world, the cold (the heating goes off at midnight) is the only thing preventing me from going back to sleep.

Why is it the damn cat only comes to see me as I am about to go to bed? I think it's a conspiracy. At least 12:30 isn't that late - I did manage to get almost an entire nights sleep before the alarm this morning. Of course getting to bed at 12:30 doesn't mean getting to sleep at 12:30. I'm not sure what it is about walking up the stairs but it takes about 20-30 minutes after getting into bed to drop off again.

Mr T (or Greebo as he is fast becoming known) doesn't help any. As soon as I get into bed he's on me. Sleeping with 10 pounds or more of fur on your chest is not ideal.

Tuesday night whinge tonight - so I should get a good nights sleep tonight if nothing else! :)

Current Mood: numb numb

Cats are evil.

evil - but in a way that makes you think "awwwwww - how sweet"

and that is the very worse kind of evil!

I totally know how that is.

Substitute film for World of Warcraft and cats for idiot friends that call me at 1 in the morning and you have my story.

I purposely stayed away from WoW - I just knew if I got into that my life would end in unemployment and divorce...

it's bad enough having the one addiction! :)

Yeah, haha. I'm thinking about coming back to EVE, I realized how spoiled we were with EVE's community.

All everyone does on the World of Warcraft forums is demand Blizzard nerf everything and give everyone level 60 characters that can kill everything
