"Introducing for the first time..."

One would think it would have sunk in by now that if I sleep in like whoa I won't be able to fall asleep that night until forever.  But no, I'm a very slow learner sometimes.  I have finished my week's Ulysses reading, though.  [And actually I think I only slept for 9 or 10 hours last night.  Sigh.  Edit: Oh, and laying off the sugar after a certain hour would be a good thing to remember as well.]

Someone at work (Katie?) was telling me recently that she thought I was an early-riser person.  It would definitely make sense but no, I am so lazy and can sleep all day no problem [well, no problem until that night, anyway].

Voice Post: locked out of the apartment

So, moments after I posted, OriginalRoomie came down to get the mail. (Yes it's a Sunday; she never has Sundays off, though, so she wasn't thinking -- and I sure was glad of that.) I had rung the doorbell a couple times in case anyone was home, but as we know it's sometimes hard to hear in the back of the house if you're in a bedroom with door closed (as she was). And she said her phone was dead, so even if I had tried to call her....

So yeah, all good now. Hopefully the locksmith type guy will come soon since the doorknob does need to be properly tightened, but we have appropriate contingency plans so we can go out and feel safe that we'll be able to get back into our apartment again regardless.

Edit @ 4:18pm: Locksmith guy just called, saying he came by the property and the doorknob was back on, that he tightened the deadbolt and the doorknob and if it happens again call him and he'll replace the doorknob.

Edit: So, around 6pm I headed out and the doorknob came off in my hand. Called the locksmith guy and he's gonna replace it tomorrow.

I got 6 hours of sleep.  I'm not sure if I turned my alarm off in my sleep or just never quite turned it on in the first place last night.  I seem to have balanced my sleep, though, 'cause I was easily awake all day.  Am now tired and going to bed, though.

Anyway, I went to church this morning at Clarendon Hill Presbyterian.

I forgot about this icon until I was looking back at my advent daily readings 2005 tag.

I think I am going to do Joy Sadhana this Advent.


I went to the potluck/discussion and wasn't especially impressed.  Collapse )
