Survivor

Well, somehow I managed to get through yesterday. We left out for the drive to Mt. St. Helens, a trip that is about an hour, hour and a half, say. THREE AND A HALF HOURS later, we get there, due to the ass-backwards route Mom took...and I gotta say, her driving is slipping as she gets old. I'm not crazy about being a passenger anyway, and add that to "too long in the car or twisty mountain roads", plus "woman who swerves onto the wrong side of the road on blind curves", and I was just happy to get home alive.

John stayed and hung out for the beginnings of anime-fest, which involved jahnji and his sis and karzon. Man, I love having people around...and good anime anyway (Macross Plus and Berzerk).

Need to get a little preliminary work done, and then see the rest of the anime...

Long Days, Long Nights

Man...sitting around today with jahnji and Mary (his sis), watching the rest of 'Berserk', I found myself getting noddy-tired (you know, that feeling of being tired combined with catching yourself nodding your head, and wondering how long you were just out for?), and thought to myself 'why are you so tired?'

(Yes, not only do I talk to myself, I have full-fledged debates, stage plays, and occasional demonstrations with myself...we're awful crowded in here sometimes.)

It dawned on me that between last weekend's festivities and the various bouts of stuff this week, I haven't had a really good night's sleep, and it finally started to weigh on me. The headaches that have come and gone for the last few days apparently didn't help any. So probably an early turn-in for me tonight, especially since I'll be out at the in-laws' place tomorrow, helping man the fireworks, and between that, and kids running around (some of which are real hellions and need to have Mr. and Mrs. Spank pay a short, sharp trip to botty-land), I better be bright-eyed and frosty.

The sleep dep didn't affect my artistic talents, though, I'm happy to say, since I did 6 preliminary mock-ups to send to karzon (I'm designing his business cards).

Did I consider napping earlier? Of course not, that might have been smart. Besides, Bug and I were having too much fun playing with lightsabers and doing bodyslams onto the bed (I'm such a COOL bad influence).

I haven't done any catching up with you guys, but I will in the morning, I promise.
