Asleep at the wheel

I have a blog category called “Better Left Unsaid” for a reason — because I shouldn’t admit shit like this.

Today after I drove to work, I fell asleep at the wheel, literally.

As of somewhere around 10 a.m. today, I had already worked 40 hours. It’s Thursday. And I have to work a convention tomorrow and Saturday.

Either I have to work faster, do more stuff half-assed, quit volunteering for more stuff or ask for a raise. 🙂 But seriously, I parked the car around 10:30 a.m., put my head down on my hand that was still on the steering wheel, and conked the fuck out.

The last song I remembered was the remix of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” and when I came to, the CD was on Jamiroquai’s “Seven Days in Sunny June.” That meant I totally missed the song between the two, Holly Cole’s “Make it Go Away.”

And for the equally anal-retentive, why yes I DO burn my CDs alphabetically by artist. I used to arrange songs by theme but fuck, that takes effort. (Incidentally, a Nick Lachey tune was next, if you really need to know what I’m listening to these days. “Run to Me.”)

No big, I guess — I’ve had a schedule like this for five years. Once you set the precedent, you can never break out of it. I just wish I had more to show for it other than high blood pressure, missed dental appointments, abandoned relationships, a propensity to break into hives practically on command and an eating disorder. No wonder the hair around my face (which is mostly blonde) has more silver shining through than I’d care to admit. Other than that, life is grand. 😉
