Broken sleep schedule

My sleep schedule is totally busted, and my usual fixes aren't working.

This is the fourth day in a row I've woken up before 8:00 AM and gone to bed before midnight. My schedule works best when I go to bed at or after 2:00 AM. I fell asleep at 7:30 last night- I just got too drowsy and sleepy to do much more than set my TV tuner software to do a timed recording of The Amazing Race. And then I woke up now, slightly before 7:30 AM; I slept for nearly twelve hours. At least I have plenty of time before class to do a load of laundry, because I'm just about out of everything.

While I have been catching up on much-needed sleep, it's still frustrating. It's not the schedule I work best at, and it's not the schedule that a lot of other people are synchronized to. That's beneficial when fighting over the washing machine, but frustrating and isolating otherwise.

I'm claiming there's nobody else on AIM, of course, but I haven't gone to check. Maybe I'll discover that several of y'all keep crazy hours like this. I do actually prefer an early schedule for getting stuff done, it's just bad for any sort of social life to fall asleep almost immediately after dinner.

a look of abject horror, yikes

*gzzzzz* *SPOINK* "oh SHIT!!!!"

The subject line is the sound of a bicycle's brakes failing while going downhill.

At least only the rear brakes failed, so I could come to a crashing halt on the front brakes in time to avoid hitting the bitch on a cell phone standing there staring at me and making no effort to get the fuck out of my way. Apparently, my yelling "oh shit, NO BRAKES" didn't get the idea across.

So I am now without a working bicycle until the weekend, when I'll be able to haul it to the local bike repair shop. It's not too terribly long, but it's still an irritating thing to have happen.
