time zone

so I really went to bed at 7:30 last night and set my alarm for 5:30 and managed to get out of bed at 6 and for some reason I am still sleepy. I think the time change gets me even when I try to shock my system into adapting, like going to bed at 7:30 and waking up at 5:30.

I keep such an erratic schedule though that daylight savings time really shouldn't mess me up so much. I sometimes go to bed at 10 and sometimes at 8 and I always set my alarm for 9-10 hours later and so last night was not that different from other nights except that I guess I was going to bed exceptionally early. for some reason setting the alarm for a time that starts with "5" always means I am sleepy the next day even if I've gotten twelve hours of sleep.

but so I did not do laundry first thing as I was thinking I'd just get work done early and then maybe go do laundry but here it is nearly 10 and I have not begun working yet so getting up early is proving to have been completely impractical.

except that getting up early makes me feel almost as virtuous as walking five miles which I think I will do today too. interestingly yesterday I noticed the magic of gatorade for the very first time. when I was young we had gatorade in the house and I'd drink it in the summer when it was so ridiculously hot and sweaty and it tastes good when you are thirsty but this was the first time I actually felt a tremendous energy boost after like three gulps. I was about two thirds of the way home and feeling like a floppy wet dishrag so I stopped in a convenience store and the gatorade display seemed to be yelling out drink me! so I grabbed one in the old original lemon-lime flavor because the blue ones scare me and man did that ever turn out to be what I needed! I mean maybe it was just the sugar but I fairly bounced the rest of the way back.

good to know, though.

I am a day behind on my shot but I'm out of syringes. I don't feel like going all the way down to Tom Waddell to get more but if not today I will just have to go tomorrow night when they actually expect the transsexuals to show up asking for things.

I am now going to scrounge for acceptable socks and get dressed and write another sentence. after that there are things I should do besides study php/mysql but chances are I'll do that anyway. I've gotten to the chapter on javascript and having gotten used to php it no longer looks nonsensical to me so I suppose I should be learning it more thoroughly too.

there's way too much to do. way too much.

blue gatorade scares me too, but the orange flavor is the only one i ever get.
one odd thing about having a walk-in pantry is finding things that have been in there a few years. this weekend i found an unopened container of tang powder

do they still make tang?

I remember when it was the moon drink. right? remember pillsbury space food sticks?

evidently. it must have been some strange impulse buy, maybe when i was buying food for emergencies that have not happened yet.
i remember space food sticks. they tasted awful, but i was obsessed with all things space-related. until i figured out that the military was running the space program and got majorly bummed.
