All right, doods, I hope you’re all doing well and your people aren’t driving you six kinds of nuts while they’re staying at home interrupting all your naps. I’ve had it pretty easy; the Woman has always worked from home and the only thing that really changed is that she can’t take breaks to go write at Starbucks a few times a week. She sits in her chair with the computer and types while I dictate, then we get food, write some more, eat some more…one of us might be gaining weight but it sure as heck isn’t me.
That might be the only different thing for her right now; she’s kinda using the whole I HAVE TO STAY HOME thing to equal EAT ALL THE THINGS which I totally get. Doods, of your people gain a few pounds during all this, the world will not end, and in fact that might make them a little happier. Have some cake. Or brownies. Or cookies. I’m pretty sure all three have made an appearance here in the last month.
Now, how my little world WILL change over the next ten days: the Man will be off work. He put in to get next weekend off months ago, and even though he works in a hospital, the OR is not slammed right now and he was told to go ahead and take it off. I’m sure the people planned on things to do, but since they’re taking the whole STAY HOME thing seriously, they’re not going to do any of it, which means I’ll have two people to supervise for the time being.
So what have I been doing besides working?
I dictated a lot. We’re working on a new Wick short, one that came to me in a dream, so it’s super rough right now. But it has Lux in it, and I’ve been wanting to write more about him.
Being an old man, if I ask for the fireplace, I tend to get it. It hasn’t even been cold, but all I’ve had to do is get really close to it and meow, and it gets turned on. I know it makes the Woman sweat, but when I ask she calls me her Raggedy Man, and flips the switch. I’m gonna enjoy it while I can, because I know hot weather is coming soon and even if she wanted to, it’ll just be miserable if I ask.
I humored Buddah by getting onto his cat tree with him. I very rarely get any higher than on the sofa now, so this was a special treat and he didn’t even try to make me get down.
But this…the people had to go looking for some food stuffs this week and went into Costco for meat. And they found packs of ribeye steaks, 4 to a pack, and bought two of them. The Man will eat 2, maybe, and the Woman probably none, so that means I’ll get 6 all for myself (I’ll share if Buddah wants, but he’s not a big fan of people food.) I don’t get it all at once; the Woman cuts it into slices, and heats up a little bit twice a day for me. This one will last about a week, maybe a little less. So I’m set for steak treats for a while.
So. There were no questions last week (and my brain was numb so I didn’t write anything, sorry) nor this week. I hope it’s because you’re all busy and no one is sick.
Be well, doods, and remember, you can ask a question by leaving it in the comments, or if you don’t want everyone to see it beforehand, email me at askmaxmonday -at- gmail dot com.
