Play it cool

I’ve got a dull headache right now. It’s 1:45 on a Tuesday, and I’m already exhausted by the week. It has very little to do with work, I think, and more to do with how I’ve been sleeping lately. Sunday morning, I woke up at 8 am before deciding that was too early (especially since I went to sleep at 3 or so) and sleeping until 11 (woke with no alarm). Sunday night? Wasn’t tired at all. Got in bed at two and couldn’t fall asleep. When I did fall asleep, it wasn’t deep (at all), and I woke up numerous times during the night (and then, of course, had trouble getting out of bed in the morning). So last night, when I thought I could get some sleep, my room was freezing (now, I sleep better when it’s cool, but not when it’s this cold). I don’t mean that the whole apartment was cold, I mean my room was like 15 degrees colder than everything else, and their was a weird dripping noise coming from the AC/Heat unit (which was off). So… yeah, didn’t sleep well either. Now, I’ve got that dull ache above and behind my eyes that feels like some small mole tunnelled through my nose into my brain and is now just camping out there. It’s not pain, it’s not sharp, it’s not moving, it’s just dull.

Now, for a guy who likes his sleep as much as he likes his parentheticals (which is a lot, though infrequent and not always consistent), these past few nights have been less than enjoyable, but, then, it could be worse. I don’t think I would have slept at all last night if it had been as abnormally hot as it was cold. So, I’ve got that going for me. Gunga. Gunga galunga.

Free cookie to the first person who gets that.
