napping through life

so I slept from like 3:30 to 7:30 and I think I'm about to fall asleep again. I need to take some meds I think and feed some animals (Sandy is in Seattle) and then we'll see how early I wake up. it looks like it might be an actual daylight day tomorrow. I'm not sure how well I will deal with this; I've rather enjoyed sleeping through the day and camping out at my desk at night but all good things.. will probably repeat themselves in a couple of weeks.

I will be in Seattle myself after Aug 9 and I have promised lisagail that I will revert to being diurnal while there. it's just as well I think. I'm not sure about the social ramifications of this sort of sleep routine but if I could get the kinks worked out or somehow make it so that being awake at night was not so qualitatively different from being awake during the day I could continue to do this. but we'll see. the last 24 hours have been odd because I napped much earlier than I expected to early this morning and then stayed awake much longer than I expected to this afternoon so the feeling of being constantly jet-lagged is disorienting. why would my body decide that it wants to ignore the sun? I mean, if I want to be awake at night, fine. if I want to be awake during the day, fine. but the slowly creeping around the clock thing is confusing parts of me while making other parts of me quite happy.

well I'm going to carry on with this till I leave town. when I get back, we'll see. depending on how early I wake up I might get a car and go get groceries shortly after waking. otherwise it's wait till 9am for Rainbow Grocery to open, which gives me better choices and prices but gods know if I'll be alert enough to recognize my usual foods!

ok. bedtime. again.

Yes, night can be interesting. I am actually going to bed tonight, early for me- before 3 AM!

I did enjoy morning the other day though, I had not seen morning in about three weeks. I guess it is nice to have a bit of both, some late night and some morning.
