I didn't sleep well. I woke often, twisting, turning, moving to a cool spot on the pillow, freezing, too warm, the shadows of restless dreams faint in my mind. When I woke by the alarm the last time, I felt as tired as I usually do when woken by the alarm, but still I found myself in a relaxed and happy mood.
At work I didn't get to do much before everything died. While digging up all the roads out here, they had also succeeded in cutting a fiber cable - and our contact with the outter world was lost. After another two-three hours of being creative about coming up with things to do (like tidying up the cable spaghetti beneath all the desks and doing some corrections on some of the standarized e-mails we use), I and another Norwegian was allowed to go home, since we couldn't actually do anything useful anyway. Glorious - it was still light out (although very windy), and I was able to buy ale for tomorrow (and perhaps tonight), something which I thought I would not be able to do due to my late work hours.
There are many plans for the weekend - I think there will be lots of fun to be had. Industrial fair (optics), coffee with a friend, ale, and going out to dance the night away. I think it will be good for me to be out and about so much.
I wish yesterday had been as good. I said things I regret and I believe I was or will be right about the predicted results of it yet. Alcohol and Irssi is a bad combination, all in all. Like noone knew that... except for me because I never learn... I was sad and upset by it all and I think that is what made me sleep so restlessly. It cannot be unsaid however, and I still think it will be for the best in the long term.
Now I am having a beer and pondering whether to make another attempt at finishing that puzzle that was begun in october, or if I should read - I have a new (to me) Pern book, whee! The joy of books! There was a Stephen King boxed set there, I sortof want to go back to buy it. Looks so good in the shelf and it is books I want to read too (the Dark Tower). Hmm :)
PS: The title of this post is a random or not so random line from a song that happened to be playing when I started writing, and it seemed as good as anything I could come up with on my own. Interpret it as you like, but not too literally.
