My body decided to reboot itself last night (finally). Around midnight, I just blacked out and lost consciousness. Which is why every time you tried to start a conversation with me, Alison, you had to start over ("Do what now?"). I woke up long enough to shut my computer down and drag my ass to bed, but I must've been asleep slumped over in my chair for a good half hour or so. Subsequently, I woke up at something like 5:30, and after 15 minutes of restless rebuilding of the anxiety the night's sleep had erased, thinking about bills, and how my lease is set to expire and I don't yet have a job or apartment lined up, and the papers I have yet to write; after all that, I figured I wasn't going to be able to sleep. Rather than poot around on the computer (Lorelei calls it a pooh-tah), I dusted the cobwebs off my sneakers (ok, cobweb, singular), threw on some shorts and dirty clothes (ha ha, take that, godliness) and ran to Stewart Park. 8 minutes, no stopping, which means I'm in better shape than I thought. I've been thinking about picking up some chain lube for my bicycle (just lubed my motorcycle's chain yesterday, go me), because I really prefer the bike to hoofing it. Plus, I can take the bike downtown within a reasonable amount of time for things like going to the Diner or to my games club. And I found some neat trails that wouldn't be too much to ride on a given morning before sunup.
I walked around Stewart Park a bit (not running, but still better than sitting on my ass), deliberately got myself lost, ended up crossing the railroad bridge that runs alongside 13 (yes, I felt the rails for oncoming train activity; I have no desire to reenact Stand By Me), walking along the tracks and then under another bridge to come out by the high school. I ran around the high school and back home and here I am now, in need of a shower and food. Since I have no food, I have to go out. Last time I went to Wegmans in the early AM on a weekday, it was empty. I hope it'll be likewise today.
Better get moving. Those papers aren't going to write themselves (despite me having given them plenty of time to do so. Lazy fuckin' papers).
