Had a really bad night. Insomnia kicked in hard, worse than usual. My best and favorite remedy for sleeplessness has been snuggling Hobkin. He was the softest, warmest plush beastie to cuddle at night. Guess it should go without saying that I felt his absence particularly keenly as I tossed and turned. Ended up getting almost no sleep whatsoever, so now I'm exhausted and emotionally frail. Add to that the likelihood that we're going to have a very late night under the gold dome, and we have a definite not-my-favorite-day day.
I'm off at 8 - if there's anything I can do, let me know. I'm not allowed to shut down the session (at least not legally :P ) but I can supply ice cream or someone at whome you can throw things (I assume you could throw things at Matthew too, but he's nice, and you live with him :D ).
I have been away from LJ for a little while - as I catch up with everyone I am truly saddened by Hobkin's passing.
I never met him in person but I feel like I know him after all of these years reading your LJ. I am very sorry for the loss and wish you comfort eventually. It is so hard to get over the loss of our furrbabies!!
