Marty and I have a little routine, most mornings. I wake up a few minutes before the alarm, if I have to be up early, and roll over and stretch and such. Marty detects signs of life and hops up on the bed ("Mommy's awake! Wheee!"). Sometimes I get a bonus pounce to the feet, if they're visible. She slinks up to the top of the bed and crawls up onto my chest, where she seeks out of the first available patch of bare skin (one morrning, my cheeks - ouch) and starts kneeding and purring. Eventually I can't take the kneeding anymore and she curls up on my chest and purrs while I pet her until I decide that no, I really need to get up. Then we come into the office, and she waits impatiently while I open the window next to my desk. She plops down in the window and watches the outside while I check email and LJ and stuff.

Ellie, meantime, is parked in Jeff's desk chair pretending to ignore all of us.

I love our cats. :)

I road my biike for a total of three one way trips to school today. Rawr. The first ride was okay, the second ride sucked, the third ride was pure fun. There's something that feels badass about riding in the rain.

We got out of class an hour early tonight. I was looking forward to coming home, making some salad for dinner, and finishing the Voyager episode that we started earlie. Only it turned out that the power had died about ten minutes before I called Jeff to come pick me up. We didn't want to open up the fridge to make the salad, in case it was a long while until they got the power back up, and we couldn't cook anything. We stewed for awhile and then headed out to IHOP on an impromptu date. It was nice; the food was tasty and the conversation chewy, and the power was up fairly soon as we got home. Thank you, Duke Energy.

Tomorrow is Friday, which is good. However, I've a class to supervise at nine and then make-up tests to give, so I should get to bed...
