Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Yet another apology.

Lately, I’ve been tired.

Not just regular “I need a nap” tired, but brain-numbingly tired. So wiped out I’m even having trouble composing bon mots on Twitter, let alone blog posts.

I guess it’s post stress letdown – there’s nothing for me to freak out about at the moment (give me time, I’ll find something), so the adrenaline rush that was keeping me animated is gone and now I’m having trouble staying awake past 5 pm.

Also, I’ve been cat sitting, which has been, well, interesting.

The really aggressive hissing and growling has died down (as have the guilt trips and scooting issues) and everyone has come out from their respective hiding places and resumed begging for food.

I’ve got a kitty gate up across the door to the hallway to keep them apart – friend’s cat gets the living room and the kitchen,  my cat gets the bedroom and the bathroom.

Things should be nice and quiet, except that my cat has taken to messing with friend’s cat’s mind.

He badly wants to check her out, but she won’t get near him – except when he’s sitting in the living room near the gate, napping or thinking about whatever it is cats think about.

Then, she’ll sneak up, wait for him to see her and come to the gate, then she’ll hiss and run, leaving the poor guy really confused.

Me: “Stop teasing him! Isn’t it bad enough that he’s afraid of the front door? Don’t make it worse!”

Cat:

Me: “I don’t care. Knock it off or you’re going to be the daily special at that noodle place around the corner!”

On a completely unrelated note, my next door neighbor now thinks I’m a monster.

Yesterday at work we were in the same set all day (just me and the co-workers, not the neighbor or the cats), which is always nice but uneventful.

Tomorrow, I have to work all night at one of the city’s urban lake things (really a reservoir for rainwater and used condoms). Hopefully it won’t be too cold.

    You’re not alone… I think part of it is the time of year. We’ve got three projects filming here now – big ones – and I can’t be bothered.

    Anyone who will take a cat to babysit when they already have a cat is… well… crazy. They become accustomed after a while, but Good Lord! The stress until that happens!

    You need never apologize for length of time between posts. We, your loyal readers also have lives and understand. Mind you, you’re missed when you’re away, but until we start paying a subscribtion I don’t think any of us are going to bitch when you’re not up to posting.

    Well… I might bitch, but not to your face.

    That cat is a tease. Actually, that cat sounds like some women I’ve tried to flirt with. Hmmmm…

    “a reservoir for rainwater and used condoms” – best chuckle I’ve had all day. Thanks. :)

    How can you keep cats separated by a cat gate? Usually cats see barriers of any sort as things to be climbed and/or jumped over.
