and homeowner that I am, my body powers me up through the seven layers of sleep to a level of consciousness suitable to go check out the noise ...
which is because it's raining outside, and I'm not used to hearing it.
Cue twenty more minutes of consciousness.
Before the alarm went off, I was dreaming I'd been in an accident on a roller coaster in Disneyland, and the doctor there was trying to push off seeing me so he could avoid a lawsuit. I also dreamed about my grandma, which was pleasant (it's the only way we get to visit these days).
Best finish off breakfast and get out the door. My boss is back today, thank goodness. Will spend a bit of time on the phone with BT asking them why we still don't have a dial tone.
