Is This Monday?

Can’t be.  I haven’t had any sleep so it must be Sunday.

For those who don’t know, Amoeba has been in Hawaii for the past several days.  He arrived home at 5:20 this morning and called me to pick him up.  As is customary, I didn’t get to bed until after midnight.  As isn’t customary, I couldn’t sleep.  The last time I looked at my clock it was 2 a.m.  I was soundly asleep when the phone rang at 5:10 a.m. and Amoeba told me the ferry was docking.  Do the math.  I haven’t had enough sleep.

Don’t feel sorry for me though.  Amoeba has spent the last 5 days working in a different time zone, and having to wear long jeans in Hawaii (work regulations) when he is used to PNW weather conditions.  PLUS, he endured a cramped plane ride, a long bus ride, and a 4 hour wait at the ferry terminal — which was locked for a good part of the time leaving him standing outside in the rain — and he finally arrived home about 5:45 a.m. looking like something the cat would be too embarrassed to drag in, just in time to shower and head for the labs because he is teaching today.

I am off to deliver Avon, looking sadly like an Avon Lady the cat drug in — through the mouse hole.

  1. Hope all is well… is there going to be a Punny Monday this week despite your exhaustiion? You don’t want all of us addicts to go into withdrawl do you?

  2. We must be on the same wavelength. I went to bed late and got up early too. Thank goodness it wasn’t because I had to pick up somebody. I hope Amoeba isn’t very jet lagged and you get some sleep tonight.
