Musical confusion
I had my piano tuned yesterday, since I'd taken the day off to recover from the weekend. I also had my (beautiful new!) garage door installed in the morning. Due to my late arrival the night before, and the early arrival of the garage door people that morning, I didn't get a whole lot of sleep.

When the piano tuner arrived in the late afternoon, I let him in, showed him the piano, and went upstairs to read and stay out of his way while he worked. It was kind of cold upstairs, so I pulled my comforter over me as I read my book, laying on my bed. A cat came over and curled up on my back. I was warm and relaxed. The drone of the piano being tuned echoed rhythmically in my head, and my eyelids got very heavy.

I slid out of my glasses, and a pillow made its way under my head. Yes, I fell asleep, all alone with a strange piano tuner in my house. Probably not too smart. I woke up in the middle of a weird dream in which I was sharing an apartment building with Tara Lipinski, to the sound of my name being called from downstairs. I scrambled out of bed in a disoriented panic, cats and covers flying every which way. I hurried down the stairs, looked at the fuzzy piano tuner, and realized I'd left my glasses upstairs.

He said he was finished, so I went and got him a check, discretely fetching my glasses and finger-combing my hair at the same time. I signed something or the other, hopefully not anything too important, let him out, and finally caught my breath. My mind stayed blurry and confused for quite some time after that; I received a phone call from C a little later and was fairly incoherent as I tried to pretend I knew whatever it was we were talking about....

At least you got caught up on a little sleep. How's the garage door working?

It works great, although I need to fix the outlet that the opener plugs into (soon as I find my circuit tester, or borrow C's). And it looks awesome!!

meep! scary. I hate it when you (this is only slightly related) can't really hear someone, but are tooo embarassed to ask "What?" because you don't know them very well and have already asked it repeatedly, so you just kinda fake that you know what's going on and hope you don't say anything too stupid. meep. Related cos the fuzzy, not sure of what was going on feeling you had reminded me of that. lol.
