So, this morning (Sunday) Shado and I were startled awake around 2:30 am by something falling over...and then I was awakened again at 3:00 am by Shado wanting to throw up on the blanket on top of me (he got pushed off my bed in time, thankfully).

     Why is this in my 'gush' journal? Because I wasn't able to fall back asleep very fast after the 3 am awakening, but my imagination went into overdrive with 'Delarun.' I figured out the structure/breakout of 'chapters' in section 4 ('The Sentinel'), and then later I realized I could have Wrane make an appearance in it too, in 'chapter' 4. Eeee!

     Got some notes typed up, and copied over the relevant portions of my PatR essay--feels great to be making progress somewhere when I've been too worn out by summer SAD to even do any art!

Yay for the progress! It is kind of amazing, the ideas that come to you when you're lying in the dark, staring at the ceiling. I suppose you owe Shado (your kitty?) a "thank you." :D

I suppose I do! Arun did his hairball puking about 12 hours later, but that didn't provide any inspiration at all! ;)

Yes, Shado's my younger cat.

You speak as if hairball puking is a regular occurrence...? :: knows nothing about cats :: ;)

Every few weeks to months, usually--not so often as it felt with my parents' long-haired cat. Though now it's summer, things can get livened up by indigestible cricket legs and whatnot that tickle their stomachs when they're empty. =P

I'd swear they're almost as bad as dogs for eating junk!

That sounds like very good news indeed! I'm glad to hear that the time was productive and exciting for you.

I must admit that I am curious as to whether the interuptions were related at all. Was the something knocked over by another something that proved to be a less than agreeable midnight snack for Shado?

Yes, finally some productivity, even if it was in the middle of the night! ;)

No, not directly. In the morning I realized the window fan had fallen against the screen. He was probably wide awake after that point, and I've noticed my cats usually throw up their hairballs on an empty stomach before a meal--Shado was probably waiting for breakfast from 2:30 onward. =P

So glad to hear about the progress on Delarun even if it came in the middle of the night.

I Do NOT miss hairballs!
I see you are forecast to get some more cool weather. That should be a big help.

I'm sure you don't! One nice thing about dogs. =)

Hopefully we'll get some rain for our drought, too. Looks like you guys are getting hot again. =(
