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.
