Last night around 7PM I came to the realization that in the last 7 days I’d ridden over 150 miles on my bike and suddenly felt exhausted. I still had a lot of work to do so I decided a brief nap would be in order. I was expecting to sleep for an hour. I woke up at 6am today. So yeah, it lasted a little longer than I was planning. I remember responding to a few SMS messages with my phone, but otherwise nada. It’s particularly amusing because i kinda just stopped what I was doing and closed my eyes, and while I was in fact sitting on my bed at the time I wasn’t in it by any means. Hell I was fully clothed laying on top of it with a pile of work crap currounding me. In fact, here’s a short list of other things that were also on my bed within arms reach when I woke up this morning:

  • Mobile phone, battery dead. (I plugged it in and it instantly told me I had 27 new SMS messages. Will check them after breakfast)
  • U Lock
  • iPod and headphones
  • Laptop wide open with 19 blinking IM windows, everyone of the people who sent them currently being offline or away.
  • A fan that I don’t remember moving from my window to my bed. Yes, a fan. Turned on.
  • An open bag of Doritos, luckily not knocked over.
  • Sunglasses
  • A camera and related cabling to connect to the laptop.
  • Bicycle gloves.
  • Unopened mail
  • A few scrachy notes to myself of things to remember to do before going to sleep.

Even better, I leave for Seattle in about 24 hours and now have considerably less time to finish up a ton of crap before I leave. Eeeep!
