A Day Off With Amy - I can't sleep lately at all. I shouldn't be sleeping now, of course, but I was up from about 2 until 4:30 am and I'm exhausted today. What's impossible is trying to function when you are overtired. That's how I've been lately. I scribbled thesis notes all morning yestersay in my office, to the accompaniment of my office mate's exaggerated sighs, and rapid-fire page turning. I'd like to turn to her and say, "Calm down. Take something," but I don't. I brought ear-plugs today, but even they couldn't tune her out. She's always like that, snapping pages, sighing like her life's going to end, making every conceivable annoying sound one can make without vocalizing...so today I am relaxing. No work, just a day to myself.
I am overjoyed that Kira decided to stay home this season, putting off another year of resort work for the winter months. I was rather surprised when she alerted me via IM, because I figured she would be leaving any day now and I would have to be content with the shots we'd taken the last few times for voy-zone and our website. Since she is enduring a holiday job she has been looking for any almost excuse she has to blow off steam. Of course, I tend to have quite a few suggestions in that department. The other night we got thrashed on eggnog and I loved how perfect her outfit was for this time of year. I kept teasing her with elf jokes and she finally punched me when I asked if she lived in a tree. Good to see the girl can take a joke.
