Spook has not moved since this morning. I'm pretty sure she's under the stuffed chair.

As posted on FB:
4:30 am I am awoken by what sounds like a smoke alarm with a defective speaker, or maybe the squeak of a jar being opened. Get out of bed to check it out, and Spook gallops from next to the bed down the hall to the livingroom. I follow (thinking "What did you say, Lassie? Little Timmy fell down the well?") but as I approach she squeaks some more and runs away, circling around back to me. She wants to play. I want to sleep. I go back to bed, a couple of hours later she is by the bed squeaking, this time it's sounding more like a meow/whining. She let me pet her, then ran away. This is the first time she has been in the bedroom since she got trapped under the bed. Progress.

Stayed in bed till 9, got to work before 10. Forgot it was donut day until there was only one left. Got some testing done on a borrowed new machine, but had to wait till 3:30 to run the test I was signed up for on the current machine. Not a huge problem, it has to run overnight, over the weekend should be better.

Lunchtime went to Petco and bought a small pile of things which I figured Spook might enjoy. We'll see if she ever comes out. I'll be going to bed early to make up for this morning.

Straight home after work, Amazon delivery was on the front porch - Fisherman's Friend cough drops, which I have not found in stores anywhere here. It has been eons since I tried them, and frankly cannot remember if they were any good, but three friends independently recommended them in the past month, and it's not like they wear out on the shelf.

Dinner was a standard bit of cooking for me, for a change. Three fried eggs on three pieces of multi-grain nut bread with margarine and a slice of American Singles on each piece. And lactose free 2%.

Watched two episodes of TMZ and the tail end of MT vs UT State football.

I'm going to go take meds and go to bed now.

Plans for tomorrow:
8 pm Tabard Theater's The Immigrant, because the music director from Little Shop is starring in it, and there will be dialog in Yiddish.
