It was really weird how the Republican convention was all "The established ways don't work. It's time for radical change." While the Democratic convention is all "Praise the Lord!!" MERRRICA! MERRRRRRICA!"
It's like I somehow wound up in Bizarro land.

I've taken a liking to caviar. It's not an expensive habit like they make you think.

Finally, after several days of hard work and several nights of endless insomnia, I feel asleep early.
Only to be woken up at 2:30 AM by the sanitation department finally picking up the trash.

It's frustrating how it takes weeks of careful winding down and judicious application of sleeping pills to fall into a normal sleep schedule, and just one night of insomnia to undo the whole thing. By all rights I should at least be sleepy now.

Every single sleeping pill or aid that will put me out but not leave me a zombie in the morning has stopped working.
I had to be up early today, couldn't get tired last night.
I had to be up early yesterday, but first stayed out late, (totally worth it) and then still couldn't get sleepy.
Both days I spent hours on my feet, and wore myself out, but still wasn't tired.
I have to be up early tomorrow, and at 4AM on Tuesday.
Tonight I'm going to have to try the dreaded "go to bed at midnight, lie there, and pray for sleep" technique. Hopefully combined with warm milk/tea, and a shower, it'll cut the waiting to fall asleep time to less then 2 hours.

While cleaning out my dresser and trying on pre-accident/post-accident clothing to see what fits, I found my workout sweatpants from college. They disappeared ages ago. No idea how they got to my second apartment when I haven't seen them since I still lived in my parents house.
Funny thing, they're actually slightly too big on me. I've been proud to have gotten myself down to my normal pre-accident weight over the last two years - but now I have evidence I've gotten beyond that, and am in better shape then I was in college!!
(...on the other hand, I got these sweats so I could take the Physical Conditioning class in college in the first place. So I wasn't in as good shape before hand. So I'm in better shape then I was before I learned how to work out in college?)

There's something really satisfying about getting home at dawn.
|Thursday, May 31st, 2012|
I almost had a freak out while driving tonight. A dump truck cut over three lanes to make it's stop and inconvenienced many drivers in the process, the one in the left lane ahead of me had to merge into my lane, and I had to slow down, as did the other cars were lined behind me.
I pull up past this truck that's stopped in the left lane, and as I'm a few yards away, the passenger opens his door in my face. I quickly check there's no cars in the next lane, it's half empty, and I swing half out of the lane (and more and I'd risk hitting the next car who was weaving slightly.)
As I'm about to pass the dump drunk, a mere foot or two away from his door, the garbage collected hopped out. If I hadn't been able to swerve I would have hit him.
I was shivering the whole ride home. I hope I'm not due an accident. I pray.
Side note: Later, I saw a car zoom speed through traffic. Then another. Then a Police prisioner bus (possibly unconnceted) then some undercovers flashing their lights, (only in the front), and soon a few more cars, no lights flashing, followed the same pattern.
None looked like typical undercover cars - they were all late model, very shiny and well cared for, and didn't have siren lights and antennas everywhere.
What could it have beem?

How come, in the comments, no matter what userpic I choose, it only displays my default userpic?

Also, we're looking for more people for our room in the convention hotel. Interested? Leave a message here or contact me in any of the usual ways.

I can't believe it's 2AM. I've never stayed in the office this late before. So much work to do and no desire to schlep home when I was done. But it'll be harder now. The commute home will be unpleasant.
It's raining, but it's pretty warm for the first day of winter. Being outside won't be so bad.

I think I have the only Jewish mother in the world who wants her kids to eat less and lose weight.

Worked the elections all day and all night. Now to collapse into bed, and get up early again to be at the very bottom of Manhattan at 9AM tomorrow.

|"Is this really your life? I thought things like that only happened to people in sitcoms."
Last week was insane. I had dozens of bad things happen to me, only a fraction of which I talked about on Facebook. Some of them were rather bizarre and out there. All of them happening in the same week was even more bizarre. This week has been much better, though - even had some good luck.
Been working almost literally non-stop this week, working all night, then working all day at a different job, then working all night again, and so on. Can't wait for yuntif to start, so I can rest.
