And apparently the bug that floored me starting last weekend left me unable to add. Yesterday I was at the office from 11:30 to 4:30, which with an hour’s lunch becomes four hours of work, not three. (I even sort of realized this. Last night after work I bought my monthly bus pass. “Credit or debit?” the cashier asked. “Credit,” I said. “I may not be able to handle numbers right now, but I can sign things, by God!”)

So today became another short day, another four hours of work from 11:30 to 3:30 without a lunch break, because I didn’t have the energy to do more. I was getting tired and loopy, almost like I was drunk, and I don’t like feeling that way. I’m past the bug (I think) (and hope); now my mission is to regain my pep. Get refreshed. Not use the temporary, artificial pep-enhancer of caffeine. I’m already in my pajamas, and I have a library copy of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s Black Orchid awaiting reading. And then sleep. Sweet, sweet slumber…
