Seconds before the Crash
I know that at any moment, on this Friday afternoon around 2 p.m., I'm going to completely crash, so I thought I'd take a quick moment to note that I've finished up another round of revising to "Painting Haiti"!! Woo-hoo. It's the little victories that keep me going on some days, slogging through the long Day Job daze.
The reason I'm about to fall over is that I didn't get much more than 3 or 4 hours of sleep last night. I don't know what got into me -- I had a really cool time yesterday after work, stopping by a couple sites in downtown Raleigh to snap photos of locations for the Haiti story, and then taking a couple photos of cool houses in Cameron Park.
I even found a house for sale there in Raleigh's Cameron Park -- only 650,000 bucks for 4,300 square feet and a historic site. It's a cool house, amd in a great location -- less than half a mile from downtown. Maybe I can find a link for it.
After taking photos I went to a reading by Fred Chappell and John somebody at Quail Ridge Books, meeting Jason and Janet there, then we chatted over a very late dinner afterwards at Whole Foods.
Maybe that's why I couldn't sleep -- I didn't eat 'til late and I was tooling around in the Esquart in the heat and humidity with the windows down. I prefer THAT explanation over what I fear was really bothering me -- work-related stress. Damn it. I hate stressing about work. But all of a sudden I've gotten slammed here, including a crappy project that nobody seems to have wanted to do, so "Let's give it to the new guy! Mikey likes to do scut work! Hey Mikey!"
Ugh. So after tossing and turning from about 10:30 to 1:30, I finally got up and started watching the DVD of "Seven Samurai." I figured at 208 minutes, I'd surely get tired at some point. It's actually a pretty cool movie so far. Some wacky camera work for a 50-year-old movie, and the samurai are great. I made it about 45 minutes into it. Not sure if I'll ever watch the whole thing or its remake, "The Magnificent 7."
So now I've got some more work to do for the Day Job. But when my Diet Pepsi wears off, you can find me under my desk, sawing logs. Later!
