I’m going to see my uncle this weekend, which means not being asleep during the day, so I’ve been trying to get used to being awake during the day. It’s hell. I hate it. I’m not good at it.

I’ve asked my husband to bring me some Red Bull, because it’s far more effective than coffee. Coffee is good for preventing headaches. Red Bull is good for making me unable to close my eyes, which is what I need most I think.

If I can stay up until midnight ish for the rest of the week, and then wake up around 8-9am, that’ll give me plenty of time to get out the door and get to my train. Which then means I have to figure out how to get there, because I no longer trust the local cab company, and we don’t have Uber or Lyft, and he busses suck.

We’re part of Portland Metro, but this area just fucking refuses to modernise. Literally the only reason they let Doordash in is because of the pandemic.

The problem with this is that it’s compounding with other forces to just make me unable to think or focus on anything at all. I’m behind on a lot of stuff because I just can’t pay attention. My brain won’t work.

Also I’ve been really fucking itchy lately. I don’t know why. If it’s a hange in humidity, or laundry detergent, or what.

And now, even though I slept all night, it’s getting to the time of day that I’m used to going to bed, so my body just wants to go back to sleep. But my husband will be home in an hour with my obscene amounts of caffeine, so hopefully that’ll make it easier.

In other news, I signed up for a record subscription thing. A bit like Columbia House way back in the day, but instead of picking the records I want, I get a blind box each month. It’s getting to the point where I’m really getting antsy because my first delivery should be getting here soon, and I half expect it to arrive when I’m gone.

I’d really like to find a proper Columbia House type service, because I used the hell out of that back in the day, when it was CDs. If anyone knows one for vinyl that works on the same principle, where you can just pick from a catalogue, let me know.
