being sick sucks, or, the mighty huntress strikes!

Among other things, being sick totally fucks with your sleeping patterns. Last night I went to bed around 1am, but woke up again at 1.45, unable to sleep -- probably due to the three hours I slept during the afternoon -- and watched some of 21, a movie I'd been wanting to see, as the true story it's based on has always fascinated me. Finally went back to bed around 2.45, only to be woken up at 7.15 by Aoki. I assumed she wanted food, as is often the case, though it turned out that there was a decent amount of food in the bowl (though the water dish was low -- that, though, usually doesn't prompt her to wake me). I couldn't get back to sleep, so I watched some more of 21 (thank you, DVR), then started to fade again a few minutes ago, so I came back into my room--

--only to discover the corpse of a tiny mouse near my bed. Suddenly, I divined the true reason for Aoki bugging me 90 minutes ago. The mighty huntress has claimed another victim. *shakes head*

The mouse has been flushed, and now I have to see if I can get back to sleep with that rather big shock in my system.
