Someone Has To Pay

OK, this is not a morning that I would classify as "going well". First off, I'm roused from one of the most vivid, interesting, and non-nightmare dreams I've had in forever by the phone ringing. Add to that, I was sleeping on my stomach, so my neck and shoulders immediately screamed their dissent at the body's decision to attempt to get vertical without first changing position (fucking christ, I'll feel this one all day). Then, the phone, upon answering it, not that I knew what the question was, proceeds to merely beep in my ear...Apparently, I was called by a computer at 6:45am, simply because it was lonely.

Well, shit, the shock of awakening that suddenly and sharply ensured that all systems were on overdrive, so I managed to shut down the warning klaxons from the Red Alert, only to discover that sleep was no longer in the building. OK, I think, might as well just start the morning ritual early, no biggie. Lean over to turn on the lamp (my head is directly above it), and the lightbulb blows out. Ever noticed how a dying lightbulb never just fades, it goes out in a blaze of glory, a "blinding" flash, as it were? Well, one of my eyes sure got a good close look at it...at least it was my bad eye (the other is just a problem, but not malicious).

All this before 7am. Man, this doesn't bode well. The only plus is that it appears my DVDs of Friday the 13th 3 and 4 may have come in...gotta wait for the office to open to find out, though.
