Fscking power outages and sleep deprivation
Last night, with 2 auctions left to list, my power went out. I waited a while to see if it would come back, with my UPSen bleating. (Memo to self, put ADSL TA and gateway on UPS.) After waiting a while, unable to sleep with the noise, I just shut down everything, turned of the UPSen, and crashed.

The *ONE* fscking thing I missed in my 'turn if off' run? THE LIGHT IN MY ROOM! Damn it. So around 5AM the power comes back on and I wake up immediately. And it was *cold*, since the heat is a gas heater in the kitchen and the fan I use to move it is, duh, electric and the suplimental heat in the other rooms is electric. So I'd turned it off since it was just making the kitchen roast and not heating much else.

So, being startled awake and unable to crash I went around and turned things back on. And still up I entered those last two auctions, and now here I am posting. I'm just getting sleepy again - by my alarm goes off in 20 minutes. Today is going to SUCK SUCK SUCK. I think I might head in early and see if I might be able to slip out early. This shoots tonight for me too, I'm going to be dead. I expect I'll come home from work, eat, and crash.

Oh, and I think I'm getting a cold since I was very sniffly all day yesterday and it is starting again now.

Lots of orange juice. Vitamin C and energy. It's what I used to pull all nighters in college after I figured out that coffee just made me feel sick, more tired then I had been, and unable to concentrate. ... Hope you feel better soon.
