Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

(no subject)

I really wanted to get done a chapter of SOMETHING today but I was driven to distraction by my cat Patches' strange behavior, which has persisted for the past few days and involved her climbing in out of boxes and boxlike containers and going into a 'pee stance.' But, upon climbing out of the box, nothing is there but a few smears--so she's essentially going around ruining various bits of paper (already ruined an old drawing I never got 'round to coloring ... not such a bad thing, it, like all my attempts at art, was terrible). I became very worried because this type of behavior is symptomatic of a urinary tract infection in cats, which in some cases can be quite serious. Since I literally have no car, I was at a loss as to how to get her to the vet and finally called on a neighbor for help--however, mom got home early and we went to the vet together and got her some antibiotics and so on.

I can write when I'm depressed and when I'm tired, but when I'm anxious to the point of pacing there's not really anything that calms me down except watching spiders and ghouls bleed to death from my blood elf warlock's curses ;x
