Okay, fans and followers, sorry about that. I'll try to explain and then be my regular hiLARious self...
The nemesis of the Hope of Future Laughter is the Prospect of Future Despair. In my tired and weakened state (seriously, how many walking trips will it take before I start feeling good, already?) I made the mistake of looking into the future.
This is never a good thing--unless I'm looking forward to the day I can look back on my current hell and laugh and laugh and laugh.
Oh, sometimes it's good--if I'm looking forward to a visit, or one of my friends' kids graduation ceremony, etc., or that day I win Powerball and rule my little corner of my little universe...
But you get the idea. When I get super-tired, bad things happen--mainly to the happy-go-lucky lands in my head.
Also, I'm prone to crankiness due to this class I'm trying to keep up in... and failing to keep up in. So it goes.
Anyway, I was so tired I skipped my solo callback tonight. I had to get home. I want to be in bed sooner, rather than later. I have things to do tomorrow (for instance, this week's assignment is due by midnight, the budget stuff is due at school, and I have to finish grading a bunch of tests for progress reports going home on Thursday...) and I need to prepare for that tired.
The Prospect of Future Exhaustion. There's a new one!
