santiago and the clock radio

santiago is fascinated with my clock radio. I swear, though, I think he hits snooze for me. I didn't get up until 45 minutes after I heard the first alarm and hit snooze, but I don't remember hearing any others. the snooze button on this clock is extra special because it adds ten minutes of snooze time if you press it multiple times at once. say the alarm goes off at 6: if I immediately press snooze twice, it won't go off again till 6:20. this is truly a dangerous device.

this morning I had to bar the cat from that side of the head of the bed because he decided to forage there. when santiago forages, objects go flying every which way as he tries to reach whatever sort of huge bug he's hallucinating at the bottom of the pile. I have books and cds up there mostly, two water bottles, a bottle of cough syrup and a bottle of miscellaneous pills. he was foraging in the cds for the most part but knocked over everything possible in the process. so I pushed him away but of course with this cat if you push him away from something it only makes him all the more keen for whatever he was doing so you have to then either barricade him or distract him.

wanting to sleep, there was no way I was going to distract him, so I stuck my arm up over my head across in front of the space where all my crap is and everytime I felt a little furry body part I would simply push him back to the other side. he will give up eventually and this was not a particularly taxing way to barricade him, but I still wasn't sure he'd give up before I fell back asleep. somewhere along the line, though, he decided to crawl under the covers instead so I was able to relax and go back to sleep.

he's still under there.
