Why is there never anything good on TV at 2am? Seriously...who wants to buy a magic dicer slicer oven with bonus finger graters and non stick shoe racks that if you pay by credit card you get the full edition of 'Idiots of the World' and a Cd of songs famous in the early 80's that have been remade by an Elvis and Billy Joel cover band at 2AM IN THE MORNING!?
Oh and being awake this early in the morning, you get to witness all the disgusting slimey creatures that inhabit your house while you sleep....for example hideous long black centipedes with what looks like fangs on it's arse that moves at an alarming rate across the carpet towards your feet that just. won't. die. nomatter how many times you whack it with your shoe.... or the slug that you have NO IDEA where it came in from but it's somehow on your lounge leaving little squiggly silver trails all over the place... or the barage of teeny spiders that occupy that wallspace above the bathroom door that you don't normally notice in the dark. Oh what joy! BLECK!
And why do creepy noises sound 10 x creepier when you're sitting awake and alone in an otherwise dark house thinking you see shadows move out of the corner of your eye..oh wait I just answered my own question.
*sigh* I can't even crochet! If I started something my obsessiveness would make me finish it and I'd be sitting here til dawn! My darling loyal Toby hasn't left my side though, he'll stay curled up on the lounge beside me until I go to bed...Sparrow on the other hand seems to have decided that the bed is warmer and comfier and has abandoned me most likely to curl up on my pillow for me to squish accidentally when I stumble in later.
Maybe if I go lie down I'll drift off eventually...I'm beginning to think that might be a good idea. Or at least a better idea than sitting here in a possibly haunted, bug infested, slightly chilly, drunk slug hangout :o)
