Most of the rest of the day was spent sleeping.
Shannon and I did do some housework today, and I even moved the living room furniture around so that I could clean under the couch. There were quite a few dark chocolate Hershey's kisses under there (Shannon was eating these for a while), several toy mice now mysteriously denuded of all fur, a few 20-sided dice, my old white-out pen (useful when proofreading), ball-points of various colors, a few bookmarks, and incredible amounts of dust, such that it seemed to be gathering itself together to take some tangible form. But no ... I have thwarted that plan with my broom-wielding exertions. Go me!
In fact, I did tons of sweeping today, and this had the same effect it has had for the past 15 years: it draws the cats like a siren call. Cobweb, in particular, followed me all around, whichever room I was in, and walked in the path of my sweeping, walked through the pile of detritus, and just generally made a nuisance of herself. I'm not sure what is so exciting for her, but she clearly finds the process literally attractive.
Tomorrow: lunch at Zachary's Pizza with Katherine and Mimi!
