Incidentally: I’ll be at an Edward Tufte course all day tomorrow, so no VR story snippet until Thursday.

3:49 p.m.

A friend suggests I might feel better if I ranted here.

Ironically, everything I need to rant about has been improving a bit over the past couple of days. But, I don’t need to let that stop me.

Sleep. Sleep’s been a big weight on my mind lately. I’ve been unable to fall asleep until after midnight, then I’ve woken up groggy and exhausted. Repeat. And it’s kind of amazing how much of an impact that’s had on my mood. I’ve tried everything I can think of, including sleeping pills, and nothing’s helped.

Then, I was completely unable to sleep Saturday night (but at least I finished the first of Dan Simmon’s Hyperion books, which was brilliantly written). This was the cap to an amazingly busy Saturday. Sunday, I went to church then spent the afternoon with my Mom, and after she left I fell asleep and didn’t wake up until late Monday morning.

So, that’s left me dazed and feeling out-of-sorts.

Then, the alien parasite illness of last week prevented me from doing pretty much anything productive, and I’m still recovering from that.

So, I’m mildly frustrated and annoyed.

Ummm. There we go.

I just wish I had done something in the past week or two. I feel like a drain on society right now; passively consuming but creating nothing.

Yes. Yes. I know. No updates in practically forever, other than anaemic posts Thursday and Friday.

To be honest, I’m just not feeling like it. Work is stressful, and my sleep patterns have become all wacky again, to the point where I have very little time at home when I’m not either asleep or trying to go to sleep.

So. My apologies, and I suggest that you expect a Week of Suckage here.
