I decided to stay put, and not take advantage of the Fireside being open 24 hours (still a relatively rare thing in Portland). Didn't feel like taking the walk.
Life simplifies when you're sleep-deprived. Thoughts get simpler, to avoid the risk of getting too complicated for tired minds. It's not the time to be pondering politics or existentialism or Man's Crisis of Identity in the Early Part of the 21st Century. The Blogathonners and I are not to the "Fire Bad, Hugs Good" stage of sleep-dep. It'd be interesting, though, if we did.
What simple thoughts can I think right now?
