On the minor horrors of an overly loving cat
Gergiev has been quite needy since I returned home. Insists on sleeping with me. Follows me around the house. Jumps onto the table as I eat and skulks over to the far side so that I cannot shoo her off without getting up. Sits on my books when I try to read and on my paper when I try to take notes. Stands in front of monitor when I try to type. Tries to taste my mocha. Is generally disruptive of the entire prospectus writing process. Must now peel cat off of lap and go to bed.
