Hey Everyone! :-)
Agent Thoth discusses more of the trials and tribulations associated with living with hominids. Incidentally, if you've missed Agent Thoth's earlier entries, you can find them here: Thoth's Journal

Agent Thoth's Personal Log
Day Three-Hundred-Eighty-Four:I have found that there are instances during my hominid-servant's sleep-cycle when the time seems to drag. Clearly, this is a purely psychological phenomenon, but it still makes my assignment on this planet difficult to endure at times. I believe this challenge could be solved if my hominid-servant slept in shorter, more frequent intervals, as any civilized being does, since it would enable her to help keep me occupied.
To assist her towards this goal, I sometimes undertake to wake her up multiple times during her sleep-cycle. This can be quite challenging, as she does not seem to appreciate my assistance in this matter. In fact, she sometimes becomes quite hostile and raises her voice when addressing me!
I have attempted to curb these outbursts by sitting on her head and engaging the P.U.R.R., but for some reason the P.U.R.R. seems less effective in these circumstances. I would have thought that obstructing her access to oxygen in conjunction with the soothing effects of the P.U.R.R. would have a pacifying effect, but apparently hominids do not respond well to this combination.
In spite of the difficulties I have encountered with this experiment, it at least has the advantage of keeping me entertained when the domicile is otherwise too quiet. I will continue my studies in this area and report on my findings as the data comes in.
