I’m now on the tail end of a night of insomnia. I’m still wide awake, but I’ve usually woken up by now anyway. This is always so awkward. Do I just… go through my morning routine and start my day as if everything was normal? I have some sleep pills here, and only now, after the sun has begun to rise, does it occur to me that maybe I could take one.
Or maybe I should just keep doing what I’ve been doing… which is just clicking on stuff, staggering around the internet like a drunk trying to find his way home. I must say there are an awful lot of very odd blogs out there if you suddenly find yourself going down the wrong internet sidestreet at 2am on a Monday morning.
LATER: I work from home, so I don’t have to worry about “going in to work”. I took the day off anyway – I’m in no shape to code. The project I’m on involves mucking about with a database and doing some semi-complex things to it. I need to have my head clear before I attempt that.
