Yes, I'll have the pasta, and a few more hours in my day, please.

I'm utterly exhausted, which is why you haven't seen much of me lately.

I woke up at 3:30 this morning, and I couldn't get back to sleep; all I could think about is work, and everything left to do.

I've found I have to check my work email after I get home and before I go into work, just to keep up on things -- am I turning into a manager after all?

I haven't had time to move into the more spacious cube that has my name on it -- too much to do!

And I pretty much slept the entire weekend, so I feel guilty for not getting any cleaning done, or anything that would remotely pass as something resembling productivity. I just didn't have the energy. It's probably my body trying to recoup from the stress of the week.

I did, however, manage to get up the energy to go to my best-friend-from-high-school's-daughter's 1 year birthday party, which was a hoot, in a low key sort of way. I saw people I hadn't seen in a literal decade, including said BFFHS's 3 year older brother, S. We caught up; he's changed in some ways, in some ways he's the same.

He was proud of the two way pager he had gotten, and even more excited when I showed him my matching model that work leashes me with. Which reminds me, I owe him a page.

He's still into sports, and is a certified world traveler now -- nothing I would have expected at all from the person I knew 10 years ago.

Raven (zen_raven) asked me about him, and the first thing that popped into my mind was "He's short." And really, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw him, that he was short -- taller than me, but only by a couple inches. Perhaps I'd just forgotten, or my memories of 10 years ago had added a few inches because he was The Older Brother (I didn't have one) -- and we always looked up to him. Maybe I just remembered that as literally.

Now, don't take me wrong, I have nothing against men that are 5'8" or so. I'm not that shallow, although I think we all have to admit we're somewhat biased by how someone looks. But I think I really do base a lot more on personality than looks, overall.

But it's be cool to renew the friendship -- I don't have enough friends who knew me way back when, and I've always thought S was cool.

On a slightly-related-but-not-really note: I must have Hardy's kids. Oh, yes, he will be mine.

But more urgently, I need to sleep.

  • Tired.

    Being in the office at 8:30 am means getting up at 5 because I hate traffic and traffic starts at 6:30. Wah. But I did get more Caribou. YOMS.
