So, while I was asleep, (and I didn’t hit the sack until 4:30 this am, up writing like a mad woman) my cat decided to IM a few people (it’s not the first time he’s tried to sneak in a quickie with one of his kitty friends or worse my buddies!). He also decided to reconfigure my word docs. I must say if it weren’t for Kitty I wouldn’t be aware that I have the program that speaks text to you. I woke one morning to some weird ass voice reciting an old blog I had saved. That said, I’m tired of sharing my computer. He gets fur and kitty crumbs from his kitty snacks in my keyboard. He rubs up against my nose while I’m typing and gets his fur all in my face, and coffee! What is worse though is he likes to bathe on my keyboard.
Do you know how hard it is to type with an eleven pound bathing kitty sprawled out on your keyboard? If he isn’t snoozing, bathing or batting at the cursor he hogs my chair. While I am reducing my butt size, the seat of my chair is not big enough for the both of us! I love the little monster but I draw the line at buying him his own laptop. I believe that is just going too damn far. Besides being the complete feline he is, he’d probably want one with all the kitty porn and cat nip games, and that just ain’t gonna happen!
The life of a writer! I swear, it can get really difficult at times. How about you? What sidetracks your writing time? And please share a kitty or puppy tail
