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 Five-Hundred-Twenty-Two:My hominid-servant's favorite waking resting posture is reclined on a cushioned, textile-enshrouded piece of furniture that allows her to elevate her feet and rest her head simultaneously. She then, generally, places a flat section of textile, with dimensions somewhat longer and wider than her body, over herself. It is in such a position that she spends many of her waking hours when she is not otherwise occupied with tending to the domicile or food preparation activities. From this perch, she is able to complete many sedentary tasks, everything from mending the occasional damage to the textiles with which she covers her body, to creating new textile products with various uses, to tapping on several different electronic devices that she seems to have developed an obsession with.
I make it a point not to interfere this habit of my hominid-servant for several reasons. First, she is generally reluctant to abandon her restful pose once she has adopted it, which makes it easier for me to conduct my research without having to concern myself about her reaction to it. Second, when I break from my work, this position is convenient for me to take my periodic measurements of her vital signs, since she will generally remain still long enough for me to record the results.
The third, and perhaps most important, reason for my encouragement of my hominid-servant's resting habits is that, in such a position, she makes for a comfortable napping place. Her body releases heat energy at a relatively stable rate and contains sufficient adipose tissue as to make a soft and malleable sleeping platform. If I insinuate myself between her body and the flat textile covering she uses, the warmth and tranquility afforded by this napping location increases exponentially.
Overall, except for a recent development, it is the ideal situation to allow for maximum rest and recharging for a DPCIL agent. I will wait until my next log entry to discuss the change that is negatively affecting my ability to enjoy this small perk of owning a hominid-servant.
