awol rat

see this is why I rarely let the animals out while sandy is gone. I let sid and galina out, the family pets who get along well with the cats, and now galina is nowhere to be found. I'm sure she crawled into some messy corner--we have many--for a nap and will come out when she's hungry. but I don't know how long that will take and I don't know yet if I'm seeing the movie or catherine today so don't know if I need to leave the house but I guess there's only so much I can do.

otherwise, cleaning cages for two hours was strangely relaxing. yeah I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm getting an idea though how sandy can be so zen about the millions of critters. it's not the sort of thing I'd want to do all the time though--I have too much else to do to be able to budget 2-3 hours a week cleaning cages. maybe after a while I'd get faster at it.

so far christmas is uneventful which is fine. if I don't see catherine today I haven't fully made up my mind to go to the movies as brokeback mountain is looong and I'd like to sit and draw today for a while but I guess I could do that soon and then see how I felt in an hour. so hard to make that time commitment--you all know that's why I see very few films.

because it was cage cleaning time nearly everyone got a new home. I hope this isn't a terribly stressful thing to do to them. for a while they were all busy rearranging the furniture but now they've all fallen asleep. I see different rats in different cages all the time so I think sandy does the rotation thing with them when she cleans.

ten minutes later: catherine called and galina appeared at the very same time! she (c) can't come see me today but later this week. galina is back in with her bunkmates. I'm still faced with the movie dilemma.

christmas is just a day. but I hope everyone is doing ok or as well as can be expected.

i'm glad you found galina! or she emerged, in any case.

i don't know whether i want to see Brokeback Mountain or not. there's only so much sadness i can take, but i've heard such great things about it. if you do go, i hope you're report your reactions.

ah the typing hands get out of our control sometimes. what can you do.

I will see the film eventually. I just don't know if it will be today or if I will wait till the dvd comes out or what. I'm not sure I need heartbreak on christmas day myself.

yeah, i'll no doubt wait for dvd. everything feels more manageable on the small screen, for some reason.
