Do you know what time it is?

What you see here is all too true. I refer to the timestamp. It was a long night of mild stomach discomfort and reading. My solace was found within the pages of From These Ashes until I lost consciousness for awhile after 0600. Nothing like page-long bits of sci-fi to keep the mind preoccupied. I was worried, regardless, that I would be completely bushed. I did not want to get up. I even thought about calling in sick. But minutes before my alarm clock went off, I heard a loud thunderclap and suddenly relaxed. I fell right to sleep until my alarm clock sounded and woke up feeling about as refreshed as I ever have. Even now, I don't feel the long fingers of sleep dragging me toward collapse at the end of the day.

Tired and a little sleepy, yes, but it's not a struggle to stay awake or to concentrate. But I have to confess, even by 0500, my stomach was starting to feel better. What surprises me is how alert I am this morning. Perhaps it comes from the previous day being so mentally active (critically analysing the Seven Samurai, reading about 200 pages of sci-fi short shorts, reading that article about how there is no such thing as an instant of time by that Lynds guy). Whatever, today is the day for some reason!
