I’ve not had a good night sleep in literally a year. I waken somewhere between 1 am and 3, then either stay awake until 4 or so, and/or fall back into disturbingly detailed (yes I remember them!) dreams until my alarm goes off at 5:15 am. Last night was no exception- I checked the clock at 2:23 am. I was hearing an annoying mechanical drone coming from off in the distance, that continued on the WHOLE FREEEKIN’ NIGHT. Sometimes I can hear the MBTA trains warming up at the train yard, but this wasn’t quite the same noise, plus, around 4 am, I DID hear the trains moving about from the train yard to the station, including the crossing bells, in addition to the drone. I seriously was SO close to getting in my car at 3:30 to drive around until I found the source of the noise, and then batter the culprit to death with my aluminum baseball bat. The noise was like a huge vacuum hum. I have no idea how far away it actually was; the train yard is about 2 miles away, the train station about 3/4 of a mile.
ARRG!!!!I’m getting totally annoyed just remembering it! I was extremely cranky at work today. (And tired). My boss has been omnipresent in the office for 2 weeks straight. He’s had a head cold (poor snookums) and hasn’t gotten back to his gym schedule. We’ve gotten in a bunch of new jobs (YAY! Economy is doing something!), so I’ve been busy, but he keeps back-seat drafting and today I was ready to whack him upside the head with a drafting scale. Gawd- I needed some chocolate!
The guacamoles presented me with this last night:
I worked on these last night at Jeanne’s:
I made Salmon Cakes for my supper (and Diabetic boy). Here are 2 mooches:
Delilah (Shhh! Don’t tell her she’s getting fixed next week!)
And Chicken (with Delilah’s tail in front)
