Less Than Efficient

Wow, my brain is totally disconnected today. I took a decongestant this morning, and have had two units of caffeine in addition. Normally, this doesn't affect me much... today appears to be different. I'm totally jittery and distracted, much more so than usual. Witness the following train of thought/action:

I decide to make an appointment to get my car's brakes fixed.
I check my calendar to figure out a good day.
I get distracted by my work task for awhile.
I surf the web a bit.
I look up a list of Chevy dealerships' websites.
I notice my hands are shaking.
I decide maybe eating lunch will settle me down.
I pull out a bowl of dry soup and put hot water into it.
Looking at the clock, it is 12:28. Instructions say to let it sit for 10 minutes.
I set it next to my keyboard, and make a mental note to wait until 12:38.
I look at my computer, see code on my screen, and return to my current work task.
I mentally reminisce about my weekend trip.
I think about my car.
Oh yes, the brakes!
The dealership's website is still up on my screen behind the code.
I mull over which dealership to go to.
I wonder which day I'd decided was best.
I realize that I'm not working, so I go back to my work task.
Gosh, I'm hungry. Maybe I go should get a snack or something.
I reach for my water bottle without looking, and feel something unexpectedly warm.
What's that? I look -- oh hey, soup! How wonderful.
It's 12:45 or so, I guess I can eat it now.
Yay, yum, this is the best soup ever!
I look at my friends page for awhile.
I notice the dealership's site, still open.
I remember that I'm supposed to be working, and do that for awhile.
I eat my soup.
I am surprised to notice the dealership website.
I wonder which dealership to go to.
I put a bit more effort into my work task.
I decide to write an LJ post.
Yum, soup is finished.
Post is finished.
Except that I still haven't made my brake appointment.
Hopefully my car doesn't stop stopping before I get it done!
Back to work....
