Listening to: Meanwhile, Rick James - Cake
Who the hell calls in the middle of the night?
All I remember last night - last night after beddy-time - is Lori getting up in the darkened room and rushing to answer the phone.
Me, I could barely hear the thing. I wear earplugs to bed because one of us honks and snorts in our sleep. It might even be me, I don't remember anymore. So yeah, I close my eyes again, ready to rejoin the rannks of the slumbering when a dark angry shape hovered over me, piss-offedly thrusting the phone at my head.
It's for you she hissed, tell them what fucking time it is.
Wuhhhh... I countered - clearly not at the top of my game.
I reached for the handset, put it to my ear and muttered hello?
No answer.
Hello! Who is this!? I asked, annoyed.
Rick James answered the faraway voice, sophomoronically disguised.
Never heard of him I countered as I hit the end-call button and handed the phone back to Lori.

Rick James.... didn't he do Super-Freak? Am I now a Super-Freak magnet?

Precisely!
If someone phones me in the middle of my beauty-sleep it had better be to tell me that s/he's just died from something. Or something.

yeah.. but you'd think he'd know what time it was on earth, wouldn't you?

I'm sure timezones are a funny thing in the afterlife.
I require vodka, sir.

Meh, I was miffed that he woke us up, but I was looking forward to blogging it in the morning. :)

I'm sorry about Merganser. :(
*hugs*
