Good afternoon, kittens!

And, what a loverly gray dreary afternoon it is!

Not having to come to work until 12:30 today was fantastique! I was able to stay up a little later than usual and sleep in a little later than usual. AND, get some extra cuddle time/morning nookie from Y. HUZZAH for morning nookie!

Plus, I had time to make a yummy breakfast. Mmm. Mmm.

Although, later, the post-secks endorphins had worn off, because Y was royally getting on my nerves. I can't decide if he's purposefully pushing my buttons or just being a complete dingus. All I asked him to do was when he leaves to lock the deadbolt and leave the other lock unlocked. He wanted to know why. And, "because that's what I want you to do" didn't seem to be enough. "It doesn't make any sense," he said. "It's better to lock both."

"I don't care," said I. "This is how I want it done."

Is it too much to ask someone to do things the way I want them done in my own home? Why does everything have to be questioned and analyzed? Maybe it's not the most logical thing, but it makes sense to me and I like it that way. I don't question all the things he does in his house. Gah-rrrr.

Anyway, my plans for the weekend are not overly exciting, unfortunately. Tonight, one of my neighbors is having a party to celebrate finishing law school. On Saturday, I'm having a Daniel Craig MovieFest: Casino Royale, Layer Cake, and, possibly, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. And that's about it. Tres exciting, no?

BTW, have I mentioned how much I LURVE my pastel plaid acryllic plates lately? Because I do. I lurve them sooooooooo much.



  1. mmm -- Daniel Craig.

  2. Let us pause to ponder the hotttttness that is Daniel Craig. Ahhhhhhh.

  3. Doesn't Y understand the whole locking the bottom lock only? Yet more proof that Bossy makes a better roommate.

  4. "That's the way it has to be 'cuz that's the way I li-ike it."

    It's my motto. Feel free to borrow it.

  5. you forget, you're the cutie, he's the thinkie. he can't help but think and overthink.

  6. I don't know, "That's how I want it done," seems disrespectful and condescending.

  7. Y seems a bit on the literal side. I think you just always have to have a "rational" explanation for everything with him otherwise you end up bickering over things that should just end with "I like it that way," "o.k., if it makes you happy, no big deal."

  8. Here's a way to see it positively: Every time Y questions a choice of yours, he is actually saying "I love you. I want to take care of you and be sure everything you do is the wisest choice, as I understand it."

    So when he doesn't understand why you do something a certain way, he reacts in the only way he as an academic knows how - by questioning it.

    You can respond by saying "I appreciate your wanting to be involved, but not every thing I do has a reason; sometimes it's just because I like it that way. Thank you for caring, but please give me the room to make my own choices."

    Just a suggestion.

  9. By the way, on you Daniel Craig fest, you might want to see if you can get "Love is the Devil." Not only is it the perfect sentiment, but you have Daniel Craig. Nekkid.
