Something is clearly wrong.
I have overslept twice in all the months that I’ve been blogging; it does not happen often. When it does, it is usually because I went to bed too late the night before, which was not the case last night. This morning, however, my brother tentatively cracked open my bedroom door at 6.35. That is an hour and twenty-five minutes past my alarm (and over half an hour past the time that I usually leave the house)!! I can’t understand it — I went to bed by 11.00! I said a dirty word and leaped out of bed while thanking my lucky stars that I had taken a shower the night before. So much for trying out one of my new cereals… A baggie of this one somehow wound up in my hands as I dashed out the door. I don’t usually have a lot of time for breakfast, but at least I can sit down and eat my cereal with a spoon like a civilized person. Sigh.
Waking up late is aggravating; it throws off the whole day. If my brother hadn’t woken me when he did, I might still be sleeping! I went to my “Friday” gym (it’s closer to my office, but it opens later than the one I usually go to), which was a little anxiety-provoking, but I was grateful that I was able to go at all.
And you would think that because I had that extra sleep, I’d be less tired… ha, not so much. What did help with that was the Excedrin Migraine I took during the day; I get aura, and I am so terrified of migraines that at the slightest hint of spots before my eyes, down the hatch go the pills. Excedrin Migraine’s caffeine keeps me awake like nothing else can!
Because the vent in the office has been open for the past couple of days, some internal warming was in order.
Yes, I eat crap. I’m entitled. (Doesn’t it figure, however, that they closed the vent midway through the morning? Not that I’m complaining about that! Now if they’d only empty the trash can…)
There was also, naturally, an embarrassingly enormous salad.
Romaine, baby corn, zygote carrots, zucchini, Lightlife burger.
Then it was off to some of this…
Can I just say, I have serious issues? (Tell me something I don’t know…) In one of my classes — obviously, not the one with the professor who likes giving tricky pop quizzes which just serve to prove the point that I am a total dumbass — the discussion is actually pretty interesting. Not that I participate in it, or anything; even if I wanted to, even if I could get over the notion that anything I could possibly say is just so stupid that there’s no point in saying it, the very thought of voicing anything in that forum literally makes me freeze. I sense a problem…
In my break between classes, I bought these pastry crisps.
They played the role of last week’s soy crisps. (Seriously: I want one day where I don’t freak out / obsess over something food-related. One day. Is that asking too much?!) Look at what I saw in the store:
Yes, that is a real bird. It was chomping on something. I was completely grossed out, and will never buy anything in this store that does not come in a closed package! (Even though the only things I ever appear to buy there are Glenny’s crisps…)
The professor for my second class (the one that proves my stupidity) wastes time… I won’t even begin to describe what he does. But at least he lets us out early, so we spend less time wasting time! I have my preferred procrastination methods, and apparently they don’t coincide with his. Anyway, as soon as I got home I jumped in the shower — I usually slather myself in moisturizer while my skin is still damp after my shower in the morning, and I was starting to feel its absence! That, however, means that I am now waiting for my hair to dry. Again. I actually think I remember reading once that healthy hair takes longer to dry… um, right. Must be the horsetail extract in the normalizing conditioner I use after I go swimming. :p
Ehhh… I don’t know about that. But I am very, very tired.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
