Lunar Eclipse + Snuggles
Aaaaaah, working at nights. How exhausted + turned around you make me. You old foe. I got off work this morning at 6:30 am. The benefit to this was that I was able to witness a total lunar eclipse!!! Apparently the next full lunar eclipse won’t occur until 2014. I’ve never seen one before! Ever!!! As we were wrapping, I saw the moon slowly recede, + at 6:30am the moon had turned to a reddish hue (the moon takes on this new color because sunlight is still able to pass through Earth’s atmosphere and cast a glow on the moon). My co-workers + I were running along Hollywood Boulevard in the dark, early morning like crazy people chasing the best view of the red moon past the luxury hotels + before it hid behind the mountians!!! Oh, it was so cool + exciting!!!! I couldn’t get a picture, but here’s what it looked like:
Creeeeepy. Yes, there are happy moments that occur when working in the film industry at night. You get the delightful surprise of ending your hard, torturous, painful week by sharing a beautiful full lunar eclipse with your wonderful friends/co-workers while you marvel on nature’s miracles. Those are the special, spontaneous moments that occur that make me realize that I appreciate the unstructured environment that I work in.
Well, nevertheless I was pretty much a useless blob today. I was supposed to clean the condo with my sister today at 11am. That would have put me at 3 1/2 hours of sleep. I canceled the cleaning date + decided to go about the day at my own pace. Woke up at noon, sauntered over to the condo around 1:30 + decided to just snuggle + hang out with Megumi for most of the afternoon.
It looks like I’m torturing her + putting her in a choke hold, but believe me when I tell you dear readers – she was purring the entire time.
See?! It’s no joke. We are so in love with each other. Jeff’s feline allergies will never tear us apart!!! There is nothing like a warm, furry creature’s unconditional love to comfort you when you’re feeling down + out in Little Tokyo. I tidied up for a couple of hours + boned out of there. Basically, I got nothing done. Tomorrow will be a different story….time to man up!!!!
