I do not know what was up with Uschi last night, but she was incredibly silly and crazy during the Write-In. I can only assume she was just not in the mood to work, which would explain her very unorthodox reaction when I got her harness out to leave the house. Maybe she figured her daily allotment of work was complete since we had done so much earlier and so she was quite unenthusiastic when I was harnessing her. At Professor Java’s she spent most of the evening trying to distract everyone into paying attention to her, she was uncharacteristically whiny and wouldn’t really settle down at all. I finally took her harness off since I didn’t want to reinforce this lackadaisical behavior and after being even more silly — like climbing onto my lap — she did finally lay down for a nap. Granted she had to wedge herself under an end table first, but it wasn’t nothing.
I am still sans a laptop so I didn’t intend to get any actual writing done last night. I did get a good chunk of school reading accomplished, though. Oh, and the cupcakes were quite a hit.
