07:52 pm: Sleepy but No Nap

I didn't nap yesterday and after reading the paper and watching a DVD, I went to bed to read at 2:00am. My stomach growled so I came out here and had an english muffin and petted Spirit. I went back to read but about 10 minutes before the end of the book, my hip hurt so much I couldn't stand it. I rolled over on my back and read that way until I finished at 5am. This book also had a couple of items from earlier books: Waterford crystal that was a mixture of blue and gray, and in a nursing home, a woman with rheumatic arthritis because she can't teach piano anymore. It makes me wonder if she forgets between books.

I woke up at 11am with lots more pain, took another narcotic, and turned the alarm off. I slept until 4:40pm. I'm going to have to be places at specific times on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I need to work this out.

I'm partway through washing the bed laundry and will follow that with a load of my clothes. Loki has developed an idea of when the food machine will dispense -- he's in front of it waiting about 30 minutes early. Then the food drops down and Junie pushes him aside to eat first.

I found a way to get Junie to eat her (pill)pocket. Instead of putting it in a container and in the trash, I give Loki his snackies (equivalent to her pockets) and then she eats the (pill)pocket. Last night she even "scratched" with her front leg and then with her back leg, but when Loki ate, she ate hers.

Yesterday's WashPost Opinions had one from someone upset at the picture and story that had been on the front page 10/6. And then they said Also of concern was the overline: "Gimme shelter." "Gimme" is an expression that parents labor to eliminate as soon as their greedy toddler utters it." I don't know if it's age, place, or what, but I'm surprised they didn't know what Gimme Shelter is.

Have you heard of The Church of Body Modification? I hadn't, and neither had a principal who thought a nose-pierced girl was violating the dress code. A judge told him that she would probably win a suit, since he has to exempt religious elements, so she gets to wear the stud to school.

A simple nose stud piercing? OMG! We have teachers at the grade school level with eyebrow piercings, never mind nose studs. And since ears are part of your face, can't students have pierced ears? All I can think about is the year my neighbor's kid had 3 large gold hoops through her lower lip. Thankfully, the kid outgrew the need to rebel in such a grotesque manner.

Yeah, there's a picture with it. A small stud, even. But that's South and they tend to be a bit pickier about that. It just seemed so weird to me that she would be told to take it out -- she'd been suspended four times already.
