Exhausted...  
... I just deleted my post. Dangit.

I'm home, I spent five days doing nothing but reading and jigsaw puzzles in a residence facility. I felt blank and empty, I came home and felt loved (ETA: thank you, sweetheart), and then after a bit I just felt guilty.

I don't really want to talk to people, even the people I like. I don't want to be treated like I'm made of glass. I don't want to be tiptoed around. I'm tired... of a lot of things. All that, and I have to clean and sort out the stuff that dad brought back from the dorm and yadayadayada. God.

My rat bit my cat today. Right on the nosey. Leaned in for a sniff and then BAM! I was holding two screeching animals. Amusing, in an "oops!" sort of way. Of course, he'd already bitten this particular cat when he flicked his rather long and fluffy tail into his face. Rat. Bit the cat. Sputnik (the cat) has learned a valuable lesson. I hope.

If I ever brought home a rat - or a mouse, or a hamster, or a small dog, or anything in that size range - our cats would try to eat it. ...and probably succeed.

Now, that might have been the case a few months ago when I got my rattie... but he's really been packing on the old ounces. And now the cats are just a little bit scared of him. So.

I don't think they'll try any eating anytime soon.

This is so completely off topic, but we were just discussing how good of a name Sputnik would be for a pet in Pop Cultures today. And that's exciting.

Well, Sputnik has been Sputnik for... god, almost six years now. I had no idea what it meant when I named him, I just knew it was better than "Mr. Hoot."

Then, eventually, I thought to look it up... okay, it's the satellite... but it also means 'satellite.' In Russian. I named my cat 'Satellite' without realizing.

But I'm glad it's exciting however many years later... I had great foresight, eh?

Whoa, I didn't know it meant satellite. That makes it a million times better for some reason.
