I need an insomnia-related icon. badly.
So I had an even harder time than normal getting to sleep last night. I had finally fallen asleep around 3 when I woke up from noises from outside; someone trying to get into the house. Followed by incessant ringing of the doorbell. I was afraid it'd be the vile one, but when I answered the door, it was some drunk guy asking for jan. I told him he wasn't here and I hadn't seen him in a long time. I go back up, and there's still noises outside, I talk to the guy who's down there (not sure if it's the same guy who was at the door or not) and he says jan had told him he could sleep in his bed tonight. -_- Damn that guy. If you are going to offer a bed to someone, at least give them a key. I apologized, saying I couldn't let someone I don't know into the house in the middle of the night, and to please leave, and he accepted that.
But there was still some noise and one final ring at the doorbell before it got quiet again.
And after that, I couldn't sleep until it was light outside.
I don't know how long I had been asleep when I was woken up by a knock on my door around nine.. maybe an hour? probably not as much as two.. So I'm all groggy in my bed, staying quiet because I wouldn't be able to answer with more than an incoherent murmur, afraid that I wouldn't comprehend anything said to me through the door. At least I had a fair clue who it was; a couple of friends of the landlady were staying here tonight. Did see the door handle move, but I had of course locked my door.
I get up and sit at the computer for a while to wake up, and the phone rings. A telemarketer who wants to sell me power. I'm so tired I had to try several times to structure my sentences to tell him that 1) The offer is useless as power is included in my rent, 2) I've been on the national no-call list for over a year, and 3) I don't like being woken up. Even if he wasn't the one who did it, he still would have if I had been alone in the house.
So I wake up properly, go downstairs and talk to the guy. He apologized for waking me and just wanted to know if I knew the guy from tonight's disturbance.
So yeah, less than two hours of sleep tonight, in two different segments. Going to crash and burn later.
That's it for the woe, otherwise things are looking pretty good: Today is payday. I have money.
And I got a mail from a guy who had read my site and had a question about an extremely minor character. ^_^
Life isn't half bad. If only I could sleep..
