Bad night of sleep last night.  I had pop with lunch and dinner yesterday - mistaaaaake! - and also had a bee in my bonnet about trying to finish writing this really major action scene - which I didn't finish - and ended up going to bed like almost two hours later than I usually do.  And just laid there, and laid there, and laid there.  I don't remember falling asleep (which means I probably didn't get to REM sleep), but I woke up at 1:30.  Laid there, and laid there, and laid there.  Again, don't remember falling asleep, but woke up at 5:30.  Dozed, checked the clock, it was 6:30.  Decided to lie there for a half hour and get up at 7, my usual time.

Then, of course, I fell asleep HARD.  My emergency back-up alarm woke me up at 7:30 - my alarm never gets to the point of actually going off.  I did my usual morning routine of stumbling down and staring bleary-eyed at my computer before finally managing to get my contacts in, and before I knew it, I had eight minutes to get ready for work.  Did I have my clothes out?  My lunch made?  Any of my assorted shit gathered?  Of course not.

Somehow I managed to make it to work on time (two minutes to spare!), but I am like...foggy today.  I'm not tired per se, but I feel like I did in school, when I'd stay up late working on something - like I'm kind of out of sync with the world.  It doesn't help that for some unknown reason, the building's heat is on, so it's all warm and toasty in here.  I am like five minutes away from pulling a George Costanza and taking a nap under my desk, and I still have seven hours to work.

I've decided to start a new life - a life of crime.  Because I have hot glued all my fingertips off.

Still better than trying to sew!  Take that, sewing machine!  Screw you, needle and thread!

I don't really know why I felt like I needed to get out of the house today - now that I'm working like a boss, I leave the house every day M-F - but it was a mistake.  It was cold and windy, and now I have a headache and feel pre-sick.  (You know that feeling?  Like, you're not sick yet, but you just feel like you will be soon.) 

Ugh.  It's 8pm and I'm already thinking about just grabbing my Star Trek book and climbing into bed.  Here I am instead worrying about some landcomm challenge like it matters.  (If I don't complete this screencap scavenger hunt, I will have let my team down!!!1)
