This seems appropriate. Instead of staying home and doing laundry along with the homework that's due tonight (to say nothing of work originally due Saturday) I blew both off, inflicted the laundry on Melody as my revenge for irritations large & small, and went out to meet some folks I'd met online. In St. Paul. This kept me out until 1 AM, got me sufficiently tired that I stopped at McDonald's on the way home, and caused me to stumble forth this morning into the rain so that I was about 20 minutes late to work. As usual, fatigue induced me to make bad decisions about food, and I hit Bruegger's for a late breakfast. Right now I feel sluggish, sleepy, and about 99% sure I've contracted a cold.
Well, nothing for it but to pitch into the work the Evil Banking Neighbor demands of me, slap together the work that's due for class (better a half-ass job on the assignments than no assignments at all) this afternoon, and make good decisions about food for the rest of the day. Perhaps most importantly, I need to get a solid chunk of sleep when I get home, because the second go-round with Social Studies Methods starts tomorrow night and I want to have my game face on for that.
UPDATE: Apparently I'm not the only one disgruntled by the weather, but then I've been planning to leave Minnesota for a long time now...21 years, six months, and three days, by my count.
