The heat came back after a couple spatters of sky-water. The mugginess made it feel like it was 10 degrees warmer.
The only one who slept well was the cat, but he gets plenty of practice. Between 3-day-weekend work catchup and the fatigue, it's a rough Monday Tuesday.

Uuugh. I got to sleep late because of the heat. Then the smoke alarm decided to chirp at 0-dark-thirty and I never got back to sleep.
madbaker: (Galen)
For any of us.
Galen woke us up several times with frantic meowing, eventually followed by frantic puking.

So tired today.
madbaker: (scary clown)
I didn't have a great night. I woke up around 2 AM with a sinus headache that persisted. It escalated to medium hangover-feeling status (fortunately, without some of the more extreme symptoms I sometimes get). I've mostly medicated it into submission but I'm tired and blah. Work ethic level: low.
madbaker: (Galen)
Not a good night last night.
First there was yowling. Then a hairball. Then the mandatory grooming ("Monkey, I am upset and want comfort and this taste out of my mouth, so I will lick your face"). Then a few hours later, more yowling. Followed by throwing up.

I love the little bugger, but I wish his Siamese half had not gone as neurotic.

Second coffee today.
madbaker: (scary clown)
I got up late. Partly because I didn't sleep incredibly well - the cat threw up during the night, then demanded to sit on my chest and groom my face to comfort himself. I didn't get back to sleep for a while.

That put me behind in leaving, so I watched my usual bus go by as I turned the corner towards the stop. I took my backup bus and BART instead, which gets me to work a couple minutes later (no big deal; I just generally prefer not to transfer).

When I got to the office, I discovered I'd left my ID and key inside last night. This is the first time in five years that I've done that.

Waiting for the next small shoe to drop...

I don't know why my brain decided that I needed an anxiety dream about being a high school student in France, but it did. Thanks, brain. This second cup of coffee is because of you.

madbaker: (Galen)
Galen has been more snuggly at night lately. I want to encourage this, because I grew up with a cat that slept on my bed every night. I'm happy to have a cat to curl around while I sleep.

Unfortunately, about half the time he is laying on my chest. Which makes it much harder for me to sleep - both from the weight, and from not being able to move. I'd be much happier if he simply stretched out from my crotch to my knees.

madbaker: (scary clown)
I had dreams about reconciling gate.
madbaker: (scary clown)
Last week was okay, and parts of it were pretty good. I've been falling behind on sleep though, which colors everything.

A very nice party Saturday night both helped (social activity, lots of good chattage and terrific milk-washed punch) and hurt (went to bed around 1 AM, still woke up by 6).

madbaker: (disgruntled clown)
Daylight Savings transition is rough.

The upside of having lain awake at 2:30 for an hour was that the ensuing dream was fascinating. I was doing one of those locked-room mysteries, except it wasn't limited to one room - it took up a private island estate. I actually hit the snooze button on the alarm so that I could find out what happened next.
madbaker: (scary clown)
I stayed up a bit too late last night, but I got a major report balanced for someone. So that was worthwhile.
I actually slept reasonably well - up to the point that I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep. Le sigh.
madbaker: (scary clown)
I needed a second cup of coffee today. Weather, financial reports, long work day yesterday talking to (friendly) SEC examiners...
Soft Cell's cover of Tainted Love in the coffee shop helped too.

madbaker: (Dilbert)
I woke up around 2 AM with an aching sinus. Also, an aching shoulder. This just didn't seem fair, ganging up on me like that.
Sleep was eventually achieved through judicious applications of chemistry. I'm still tired and a bit headachy today.

madbaker: (beyond my control)
Because I woke up at 1 AM with a sinus headache. Fortunately, it wasn't a full-blown migraine. Unfortunately, it still kept me awake in pain. Fortunately, I had enough presence of mind to take a half nuke-from-orbit med dose. Unfortunately, that still kept me awake due to the caffeine.

So, sleepy today.

madbaker: (scary clown)
Uuuuugh. I woke up around 3 AM for no discernible reason and didn't get back to sleep for at least an hour and a half. I'm dragging today.

madbaker: (beyond my control)
(Ten points to the person who calls the header reference. Minus five points if you have to use a search engine to do it.)
It was hot last night. I did not sleep well. Also, I bruised my tailbone in my bus fall. Occasionally I sit down and wince in pain.

madbaker: (scary clown)
I don't expect that anyone else will actually understand this. That's okay; this is a very deep subset of the financial markets, and most people don't know the lingo. Heck, my cow-orkers won't get this without explanation. The effort that my subconscious put into this is staggering... but why?

I dreamed that a business contact, who is an inflation strategist, was holding a TIPS-themed Christmas costume party. The wife asked what she should wear. I told her to go in gold. I was dressed in twigs with balloons (i.e. inflation hedge). Someone else at the party was also in gold, but with added deely-boppers (a gold bug). Another person at the party suggested I add a cape to my outfit, so that I could be a dynamic inflation hedge.

The best costume, in my opinion, was a person dressed as the top of a Japanese house.

madbaker: (brains!)
My alarm went off as usual this morning, although it was louder than usual. I hit the snooze button, thinking that I must have bumped the volume when I put on the white noise at bedtime. I drifted back into a snooze but woke up fully before the alarm went off again.

...at which point I found out it was an hour before my alarm was due to go off. I hate when my brain does that.
