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 Seven-Hundred-Seven:The average temperature outside my domicile is once again beginning to rise, as the planetary revolution is causing the portion of this planet on which my domicile is located to once again move closer to the local star due to the planetary tilt. My hominid-servant refers to this phenomenon as the "changing of the seasons," which I find to be a charmingly colloquial, if non-technical, description. The "season" we are entering, she calls "Spring," though I have not observed many springing motions among the local flora or fauna, so I am not certain from where the term originates.
Regardless, as I stated, the temperature is rising and this has resulted in a greater variety, and more importantly an increase in activity, among the local flora and fauna. Unfortunately, due to the fact that my hominid-servant has still not relented in her determination to keep me confined within my domicile, my studies of this change among the local life forms is severely hampered. What's worse, the change in weather patterns seems to have affected the juvenile felid's mental and emotional equilibrium.
The young pest now regularly engages in wild, unrestrained bouts of seemingly random movement, to which he employs a frenetic, almost frantic, energy. I'm not certain if the small irritation is deliberately attempting to disrupt my research for some nefarious purpose of his own, or if the interruptions are simply a natural result of his uncontrolled frenzies. Either way, I find myself frustrated far more often than informed. Naturally, I will report on any progress I may make in overcoming the obstacles I am currently struggling with, as I find it likely that other DPCIL Agents have faced similar challenges and may benefit from any problem-solving strategies I may be able to devise.
Isn't is annoying when others interrupt you when you're working? ;-) You may have noticed that Agent Thoth has a new look. I hope you like his new picture as much as I do, but I'd love to hear your thoughts, either way. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments. ;-) Happy reading, everyone!
