I got into bed at 9:30 last night but stupidly kept watching the debate, my friends, so I didn't actually fall asleep until near 11. And then I woke up at 2 freezing my butt off, and am now sitting on my couch wrapped in a a sweatshirt and blanket. It's 46 degrees outside, and that weird time of year when many landlords have yet to turn on the heat in their buildings because it can still climb into the 70s during the day. We pay for electric (including a/c) but luckily don't have to worry about the rising cost of heating oil, except I guess that may be one reason why my rent is going up by $30/month beginning in January. Damnit.
Yesterday was a short run, today's a rest day, tomorrow's a shorter run just to stay loose (but come on - 2 miles? I know myself well enough to know I'll run 3), and that's it. I've had a headache for the last 24 hours which I think is a result of adrenaline that is already beginning to course through my system. I also probably shouldn't have worked on my appellate brief until 8pm, but I was in the zone, and it has to get done before I take off on Friday.
Now I'm going to get into a hot shower, drink more coffee, begin carbo loading (Kashi whole grain blueberry toaster waffles! yum!), and go to court for what is bound to be an adjournment of a motion argument, which is fine with me because if I had to argue the intricacies of this particular statutory scheme right now I would probably have to resort to giving the judge big brown puppy dog eyes instead.
