So I'm back up at DreamSchool and I've had my first class of this semester (about environmental ethics -- LOVED it, the prof is a genius. He just got his Ph.D. in philosophy from Brown) and I'm back with my friends. Happy, happy Nanny.
Also, sleepy, sleepy Nanny.
Two nights ago, my last night in Texas, I brought pupster Max into bed with me to snuggle/sleep (as I do most nights when I'm home, let's just be honest here). Max weighs about 13 pounds, so he's tiny enough to snuggle right into my stomach and AH LUFF IT.
Except two nights ago, Maximilian was NOT in a snuggly mood. It was 2:30 a.m. and my alarm was going off at 6:30 (what? I procrastinate packing. WHO DOESN'T) and I just wanted to sleep but *someone* (ahem, MAX) had a burst of energy and would. not. lie. still.
So after about 15 minutes of him wandering around in my covers (sounds so dirty. ISN'T), he finally let me pull him up next to me to snuggle. AHHHH. HAPPY. SLEEPY. BEDTIME.
I had accidentally spilled some of my contact solution on my pillow when I was taking out my contacts. And Max LOVES contact solution. L-o-v-e LOVES it. (I know. He's weird. But I love it too. But to use with my contacts. Not to drink.)
So Max found the contact solution on my pillow and then all he wanted to do was lick. lick. lick. lick.
This is the dog who, while he is mid-pee, will sniff something else and wander off with his leg in the air. ADD dog of the century. But two nights ago, when I needed SLEEP, when it was nearly 3 a.m., he was able to focus all of his little doggy energy into LICK. LICK. LICK.
Oh, that dog. I was ready to make him sleep on the floor (GASP I KNOW I'M SO MEAN) except that it was my last night in Teyhas for 4 months and I'd miss him cause he's cute and cuddly and did I mention cute?
HOW CAN YOU STAY MAD AT THAT FACE. Answer: YOU CANNOT. So I put up with the LICK LICK LICKing. Because he's just too adorable to resist. And because I may or may not want to lick him myself.
(Oh, and I'm still sleepy. Last night I couldn't fall asleep because of all the city noise. Sirens, cars going by and honking, etc. I should take a nap. OH WAIT, it's not Christmas break anymore! I have class! Back to reality!) (Oh, there goes gravity!) (Sorry. Couldn't resist the last part. Whoever can identify that song wins 10 brownie points.)
