Boss Coffee

One more for the road

Well, one last staff meeting today before things kick off on Thursday. A couple of minor things have gone wrong but are being fixed or will be fixed by Thursday, so I'm okay with that; everything else is in the pipeline and ready to roll. I still have to make a couple of calls tomorrow about having things printed up, dividers and shelves brought in, and catering laid on for the staff & guest mixer on Thursday night, to say nothing of a couple hotel-related issues, but none of it is critical failure-type stuff.

Oddly, though I only got six hours' sleep last night, I woke up about 9 AM and was wide awake even before I got to the hotel for the Board meeting and sucked down all that coffee. Unfortunately, all the coffee has worn off and I am very tired...think I might leave the little bit of schoolwork and housework for tomorrow and Tuesday and just go to bed early tonight.

Maybe I should just stick the disk in the microwave...

...except I don't have a microwave, so that wouldn't work too well. Instead of going to bed early like a sensible person, I wound up laying down and "resting" with the help of Civicrack and Iron Sunrise. Now here it is 10:30 PM and I'm not all that sleepy any more because the brain has been going on all cylinders while I administer a harsh beatdown to the Carthaginians on the one hand and follow a rollercoaster novel plot on the other whilst the AIs scheme against me. I should have just taken my medicine and gone to bed after some quality cuff time. (God, that sounds like some kind of BDSM thing. Eeeuuww.)

Tomorrow I'll be driving in, since I have the doctor's appointment over my lunch hour (so to speak) and class afterwards. I think the legs have improved a lot after a few days of hitting the cuffs religiously, but the doc knows better than I do and she'll make the call tomorrow. I'm guessing I'll be stuck with the Lasix for a while, not like I have a real clue.

I forgot to mention in my Wednesday night post that we may be staying at the Thunderbird after 2007 after all. (Even though the big Indians in front of the hotel are now gone. Gone before we even had a chance to put fukus on them, too! ;_;) Apparently Phase II of the Sprawl is projected to have a 2500-seat auditorium and additional function space; since Phase II will be right across the street from the T-bird, there's a possibility of a skyway link, and then we'd be pretty much set, wouldn't we? We'll give the Sheraton one more shot after Kale takes over, but we're none too pleased with them going in, so the deal better be an attractive one.

And with that, I am really going to bed and to sleep. Monday's going to be damn busy.
