Awake
Oh dear, I can't sleep. I hate insomnia. I spent a terribly unproductive evening. All day at work, I was sleepy and not-feeling-great. I'm not exactly sick anymore, but not really well yet either. You know when most of your body feels somewhat okay, but you can still feel this evil pool of sickness hiding deep in your sinuses, just lurking, occasionally seeping out to the nose and/or throat. Ick.

Anyway, after spending the whole day at work wishing I was happily at home in bed, I came home around 7, had some cereal to eat, read a bit on the computer, then went upstairs. Read in bed for awhile, then fell asleep. The telephone woke me up at I think around 9pm. It was B, and we talked for awhile, I told him how lovely my Christmas tree looks (as he lives 2 states away and cannot enjoy it easily) and I came downstairs to admire and enjoy it while we spoke. After quite awhile we hung up, and I found I had a voice mail! It was from St, a new boy, who I haven't even met yet. Called him back and made plans to probably do so on Wednesday, and talked to him for awhile. Sounds kind of nice.

So by then I'd spent like 1.5 hours on the phone, and here I don't even enjoy talking on the phone. Also, of course, I was awake again. So I spent some time reading Bridget. Love that book, was delighted to find more diary entries on the 'net, thanks to cannibal. Have found must make concentrated effort not to write in similar style, after reading for a bit. See, there I go again, ha-ha.

I thought I was getting sleepy, so I headed to bed again around 11:45. Read, turned off light, got comfy, and found myself utterly unable to fall asleep. Couldn't turn off my brain long enough to rest. arrrgh. My own foolish fault for taking a nap earlier, I should know better, but it just seemed like such a lovely idea at the time. So warm, cat-cuddly, and sleepy.

Also, I'm hungry. I think my stomach has turned into the size of a watermelon, because it seems like I'm always hungry these days. Is it feed a cold, starve a fever? I hope so, because it seems like I have been eating a lot. Well, not tons, but none of it good for me either. I would make warm milk with honey, C's suggestion to induce sleepiness, but I finished off all my milk with this evening's cereal. Maybe I could have toast with honey. Don't know if that's good for slumber, but it does sound tasty.

I've added you to my friends list. I hope you don't mind. :)

By the way, I was kidding about that programmer comment earlier. I don't really hate developers (that much).

Not at all, cool! I can always use more friends. I've put you on mine. I knew you were kidding. (: But hey, some of us programmers are nice people...

Re:

I'm a sysadmin, so having a general dislike for developers is just part of the order of the universe, I guess. I might see them for the nice people they are if they would just tell me what they need in advance. :P

I'm sure you're one of the nice ones, though. :) Thanks for adding me.

Re:

hmm. Well, I need ice cream and a backrub on sunday. Is that sufficiently in advance? *laugh*

ugh, insomnia sucks. . . I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately (have you noticed? ;) Last night was ok though.

I dun like talking on the phone either. . . I'm like, deaf and I'm constantly asking what the person said. And then there's a long pause cos I have to think of what to say, and I'm slow. (I dont' have that trouble in person, but on the phone I do) Online is better for me cos I can think more about what I say. And I can type hella fast.

I do the same thing, when I've been reading something I'll acquire the writing style temporarily. Sadly, usually i'm reading like, my crazy friend's posts at KPLC or something >.< lol

Re:

My order of preference has always been: in person, online, or telephone. I mean the phone is great for arranging something immediate, and if there's no other option it's certainly better than simply not communicating, but it lacks a certain something. Maybe it's because I can hear the person, so I feel like I should be with them, or something.

yeah, sometimes you do need a phone. . . if someone's not online :D

in some cases, I prefer to be online, cos I can think about what I'm going to say-- in person I can be pretty impulsive and stuff. but nothing can replace real life :)
