Last night I decided to venture out into the living room for some television time with The Animator's Wife. It's been a while, and I've really missed the absent-minded stroking she gives me while she's engrossed in whatever it is she's watching. I couldn't enjoy it last night, though. All I could do was sit and stare at the creature occupying my chair.

Yes, The Terror had taken my chair--my chair! The chair that is in just the right position for observing my (well, Osiris's) gerbils. Granted, I hadn't used it in a while, but it was still my chair, and The Terror was in it, sitting atop his pillows like some wrinkly little king.

I couldn't sleep all last night, I was so irritated. So when I ventured back out into the living this morning and saw him in my chair again, I was really too tired to care about it anymore. What's the point? Clearly he's going to be here a while, and I'm tired of stressing about it. My bladder doesn't like it, and Osiris already accepted The Terror into the household a month ago. So against my better judgement, rather than sulk back into my closet, this morning I decided to join The Terror on the chair and teach him the finer points of gerbil-watching.

Just don't expect me to be nice to him all the time. I think I was more sleep-deprived than anything.
