Starting to feel a bit more human…

…or maybe it was that last margarita…

I’ve slept for a ridiculous amount of hours since I got home Tuesday night. I basically drifted in and out of consciousness all day yesterday, periodically taking breaks to do things like run to the dry cleaners (20 feet from my front door) in between naps. I went back to work today, where people pretty much treated me with kid gloves. I was actually excited to get back to working for my normal clients/bosses/etc., because that’s practically a vacation compared to the work I’ve been doing overseas.

And then tonight I went and got some mexican food with my dad. and had a really big margarita. And now I’m rambling on the internet, and it’s 9:30 pm and I’m ready to go to sleep. I’m so pathetic.

The funniest part of the evening? My dad remarking that I looked really good. You see, working around the clock fucked with not only my sleep patterns, but my appetite, so I dropped a bunch of weight while I was overseas. So he thinks I look great, and I have to point out that exhaustion-related appetite suppression isn’t exactly a healthy diet plan.

But even with the sleep, I’m only eating about half of what I used to, so maybe I can maintain this in a healthier way.

I also find it funny that everyone seems to think that switching from diet coke to espresso is somehow a better lifestyle choice. Yes, I get that diet coke has all sorts of chemicals in it, but espresso has about 10 times as much caffeine, which probably isn’t a brilliant idea either.

And now I’m really rambling.

I promise that one of these days I’ll actually catch up with the news and start posting intelligent (or semi-coherent) thoughts again. For now, you’re stuck with my margarita-laced sleep deprived thoughts…
