Hi, honey, I'm HOME!!!

I'm home!
The house-sitting gig went well. No werewolves or burglars.
Actually the burglars were something I WAS sort of concerned about. The reason mom asked me to house-sit overnight is because last Monday some other houses on the same road had been burglarized. So she was worried that their house might be the next target.
And there WERE some cars that drove by slowly in the middle of the night, as well as a vehicle that stopped completely, right in front of the driveway, at 4:30 in the morning.
Strange.
Luckily I am a night-owl, fully capable of watchdogging during the wee hours.
Yay for Janna the nocturnal creature.
Wouldn't it be cool if my eyes glowed in the dark?

Anyway, I'm back, and I just finished responding to all the comments you left while I was gone.
The next thing I need to do is take a very long nap. :)

P.S. Maybe the werewolves ate the burglars.

I would have been a nervous wreck! But I guess at least I would have been able to keep a lookout for burglars because I wouldn't have been able to sleep a wink.

And I am so NOT a night owl!!!

XUP said...

You need to go for a whole lot of x-rays and then for sure you'd probably glow a bit. That would not only be useful, but might also scare burglars. (speaking of burglars, have you ever read any Lawrence Block? He has a great "Burglar who..." series.

Marilyn said...

They really ought to make glow in the dark contacts.

Welcome Home.

Janna said...

EvilGenius: I've been a night owl all my life!

Xup: I've never read any Lawrence Block! Hmmm. It'd be fun if there was a series about bloggers... "The Blogger Who..."

Marilyn: Ooooh, that would be a great idea, if only I could wear contacts! I seem to have an aversion to touching my eyeball.

Bear said...

I'm sorry, Janna, I owe you an apology.

Having changed my appearance, name and personality (I’m not as ‘angry’ as I used to be), I thought it would be safe to stalk you at a closer distance, but perhaps parking in the driveway was just a little TOO close. I’ll work on that.

Cheers.

Werewolf!
There.
What?
There wolf. There castle.

:)

Janna said...

Bear: Yaaay! You flew halfway across the planet just so you could stalk me. Now that's special. Next time, peek in the windows or something. When I finally notice you there, hold up a giant sign that says "G'Day, Mate", written in Vegemite.
Laugh maniacally when I scream.
It'll be fun!

Janna said...

Scaramouche: Where? Oh! There!

XUP said...

Janna - what a great idea for a mystery series. I'm on it. Or, I guess you could be on it, since it was your idea.

Travis said...

That could be your super power...eyes that glow in the dark. And then you could spot all the Bigfoots (Bigfeet?).

Janna said...

Xup: Be my guest. Just mention me somewhere in chapters 2 and 7. And maybe 9.

Travis: I could spot all of them, but how would I get the narrow-minded debunkers to believe me?

Travis said...

Convincing folks isn't my department. I just name the super powers.

Trukindog said...

I think you would make an awesome She Warewolf and LOL I did mean breeding in that other comment heh heh.

Janna said...

Travis: Who does the convincing, then? Do we subcontract it out to a 3rd world country? That's not good for the economy....

Trukindog: Well, I guess if I was a werewolf I'd be able to lick things I can't reach right now.... So that's a bonus.

You could always buy a pair of those laser pointers from the dollar store and scotch tape em to the arms of your glasses - or do one and look like a Borg.
Plus, when your cats get bored, all you have to do is shake your head in the dark for hours of lazeriffic feline fun.

Janna said...

Morgen: They have laser pointers at the dollar store? Really? Wow. I didn't realize they were so cheap these days. The last I checked, they were about 20 bucks.
