That was not the sleep I was looking for

shadowdaddy set the alarm about 45 minutes early so he could make it to an early meeting at work ...

and my heart started racing, adrenaline pumping through my system, keeping me from falling back asleep. Dang it. I was really hoping for eight hours tonight.

For my friends who cook: a great article on learning to cook (with snark: "Two weeks ago, for example, one of my stories featured an uncomplicated grilled chicken breast sandwich. A reader left a voicemail urging me to include alternate recipe methods for those who don't own grills.") and some recipes using lentils.

This is what happens when I don't get enough sleep

Can you say ... DOH! I left my passport at home. It's the thing I MUST have in my visa application. Good thing I drove today, but Grrrr! that I have to go back home.

I came to work and found a big box sitting on my chair with a bunch of stickers on it. "OOh!" I thought. "Is this my Thanks For Busting Your Ass gift, the new Ipod I've been hoping for?" Well, as it turns out it's a gift for all managers, of course it's not an Ipod. But what I love is that I open up the box and it's full of SUCKERS!

Big plan for today is going out to lunch and shuffling off my games to the people at work who bought them. I'll do a listing of the strategy games I want to sell (only about four of them) in a bit and see who bites. I've also been cancelling meetings I won't be around for. Yay!
