I got up this morning right after my cats woke me. This usually happens 10 to 15 minutes before the alarm clock goes off. It's like, well, clockwork.
Monty bothers Daisy who hisses to warn him to leave her alone. She continues to hiss until Christine awakens just enough to tell me to do something about it.
So I get up, switch off the alarm clock, feed them and start the coffee pot since it's still minutes before the automatic timer fires. Yet I stubbornely refuse to re-set it.
I did all that like always, the coffee maker wasn't already on or anything because I remember it making whining sounds when it started.
I let Oliver, the indoor-outdoor cat, out then sat down at my computer. (Christine's friend said recenlty: "You know four cats is getting dangerously close to `strange cat people' behavior.)
I got coffee when it finished brewing, read a few e-mails, blinked and it was an hour later than I thought it was.
I looked down at the time in the lower corner of the screen and thought something was screwed up with my computer. Then I discovered every other clock in the house had the same time.
Cue The Twilight Zone theme.
I don't know if I was abducted by aliens when I let the cat out or what happened but Holy Moses!
1. The alarm didn't go off.
2. The coffee maker didn't start automatically so I think I got up when I thought got up, yet boom suddenly it's an hour later than it's supposed to be.
If I mysteriously disappear, remember this post.
