Crouching Axolotl, Humping Rats

Once again I have been seeing unofficial constellations. Most of them are beasts. Wherever I look in the night sky, they pop out at me. The odd thing is that I still can't find the bear that everybody else sees. I've also never been able to find Capricorn, which is my astrological sign. Someday I'll get one of those charts that tells where everything is. If Capricorn, or some part of it, turns out to be part of the Humping Rats, then I will claim that as my sign.

Hey, Dude. What's your sign?

Oh, I'm a Humping Rat.

They're all made up, anyway. Whoever came up with the signs in the first place could just as easily seen entirely different constellations. I do it all the time. Maybe it's a goat trait.

This night feels slightly less cold than have recent nights. Either that, or I'm getting used to it, (as a result of keeping this room unheated most of the night, for Sluggo's sake.) I think we're due for a warmer spell. There was no Indian Summer to speak of this year. It's getting rather late in the season for it to appear now, but then the weather has been odd all year, so it wouldn't be a big surprise to have a balmy day or two. I always enjoy those little breaks in the natural routine. A warm spell in December is like a nice rainstorm in July or August.

I think I'll try summoning a warm day by using a summery icon. Then I'm going to try to get to sleep early. I'm pretending that something interesting is going happen this afternoon.

Too much starch in my diet.

    The evening naps are kind of nice. The one Wednesday was about three hours, and I felt pretty less than terrible after it. About noon I'd had a…

    Staring at this blank space for so long, just like napping successfully or unsuccessfully all day long Tuesday, and nothing seems to come of it.…
