Sleep and Shoes
cap, captain miss america
I got less than four hours of sleep last night.

I'm not really sure why. I blame a week off for part of it-- when you spend a week going to bed between 2 and 3, you are not going to suddenly be able to get into bed and go to sleep before 1. Or something. Especially when you got eleven hours of sleep the night before.

Sometime around 4:10, I set my alarm forward to 8:30 and said fuck it, I would be late for work.

But then I woke up completely naturally and feeling bright and alert at 8:18. I don't know how. I was still a little late to work, but surprise!

Now I am drinking chai to keep myself perky. Whiskey Monday tonight! It is always weird, you know, the way that coming back after a week of cooking makes me feel like everything is new again.

I finished Feed by MT Anderson. Funny story, this: liret told me I should really, really read a book called Feed. I looked it up and found said book, and was very excited because I enjoyed Octavian Nothing. I read the book. About a chapter in, I realized it was a different Feed from the Feed Jess wanted me to read, which is about ZOMBIES. This one is about chips in our brains and Google Ads ruling the universe. It is awesome and amazing and you should all read it. I have been 100% converted from the person who would line up to get the first chip, to the person who will never ever ever get a chip unless it's a cure for cancer or something.

Now I'm reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and quite enjoying that as well.

I got a new pair of shoes in Delaware. They're orange:

I went into Clark's planning to buy another pair of black flats. I walked out with orange shoes.

I put together my Christmas wish list for my parents and forgot the most important thing! How could I?!

Love you all!

I love Feed. And Burger Wuss (by the same author) has to be in my top ten YA novels ever. I even wrote a short play based on it once. >_>

I saw that book in the back of Feed. I need to read it!!!!

My allergies have been keeping me up lately. :(

I went through this cycle last night where my allergies were bad so I wanted a Benadryl but I knew it would make me sleep and I had homework to do so I was trying to finish it before I took Benadryl, and then it got to be 2 AM before it kicked in so I couldn't sleep and than I couldn't get up this morning AND the class I had was cancelled so I totally could have taken my Benadryl and quit working earlier.

Oh, ugh. I hate when that happens. It's especially infuriating when you get up early after having had no sleep because you have a commitment and then that gets canceled.

Feed was great, but Burger Wuss was even better! I loved MT Anderson when I was in high school. I should really re-read those books. He also has one about a vampire that's pretty good, but I can't remember the name...

I didn't realize he had so many books! I just discovered him from Octavian Nothing.

I really want to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, it sounds great :D

It's a very quick read; I'm halfway through it already and it's quite excellent!

I heart those shoes? What brand/make are they? I want to buy them in different colors, if they exist

Clark's, and they were on sale for like $27. They had them in orange and in black with beige/brown trim.
