Sorry, no clever title today. Too tired and too twitchy to think of one.

The hamster count is down by one, not due to a Kaa-feeding this time. Alex got out of the space he was living in, down to the Big Cage, and killed one of the younglings there. Only two hamsters left in the big box now, and... *counts* Rocky, Otto and Wolfgang, Cleopatra, Alexander the Great, AsYet, and two unnamed younglings... let's see, that's eight hamsters left. If the last youngling in the big box gets taken elsewhere and/or fed to Kaa, I'm thinking I'll move Otto and Wolfgang in there, transfer Rocky to their cage as it can be lidded but is bigger (and deeper) than the box he's currently in, and let Alex keep the big box he's in.
So yeah, waking up to a dead hamster was not fun. It was really my own fault - while Rocky was gone I'd given Alex the run of the shelf, as he rarely jumps off anything higher than a matchbox, and often even then won't jump down. Apparently this morning Rhia and Kate found Rocky and put him back in his box, not noticing that Alex was absent... or, more likely, that Alex was curled up somewhere on the shelf and therefor when the box with all the food in it was closed, HAD to jump down to find any.
Torian arrives, in theory at least, tomorrow. Otto-or-Wolfgang is eating a bit of a rye triscuit that I put in there. I'm nearly out of soda and we don't have the cash to get more. I'd check the card Puppy left but I suspect I'd just be disappointed again, and I'm kind of tired of that.
Oh, and hey, sparklies. Go go gadget pre-seizure warnings. My hands are twitching just slightly, enough that I know I couldn't effectively hold a pen right now, there's sparklies everywhere, and when I woke up this morning for a minute I couldn't use my legs. Joy. Err... ok, woke up this afternoon, I didn't get to sleep until around 5:30 in the morning. *twitch* Even amatryptaline hasn't been enough to get me to sleep at a sane time lately.
