T-to-the-A

All shook up!

We got a little jolt to the emergency preparedness systems last night with a 4.4 shaker!  Strangely enough I woke up just before it happened.  Lying in bed wondering why I kept having bad dreams and why I couldn’t sleep, when I felt myself move out of accord with intent, and then the blinds rattled, and my sleep-fogged brain jumped to attention.

It was over almost as soon as I realized what was happening, but it sure got the adrenaline pumping… the adrenaline and the anxiety.  “Please, God, let me get out of here before any more earthquakes come a rumbling!”

I eventually fell back asleep to be tortured with dreams of some big “Upgrade” apartment in a high-rise where NO ONE who worked there was of any help at all.  I had copious conversations with Apartment staff about finding the elevators, or the stairs, or about turning in a lost flashlight I had found, only to find that not a single person in uniform had any interest in helping me.  I was full of vitriol for the lazy bastards, and kept wondering if it was too late to move back to the little beat up apartment I had recently vacated.

I seriously hope I don’t move back home only to find that no one there knows where the elevators are.

And while I’m the topic of being unsettled, let’s discuss the Spring Forward hangover that is currently haunting my inner clock- Wake up at 9:30 and look at clock with a grumble, if it’s time for me to get up, why do I still feel so damn tired?  Oh, I know, because it’s really (according to my body clock) 8:30.  Working at photos and emails and scripts till 2:00 in the a.m. with a disgusted “I was going to go to bed early tonight!” only to realize it’s only 1 a.m. for me…. then allowing myself to stay up a wee bit later because it’s “only” 1, really.

I’m telling you, weird and rough Tuesday.  Weird, and, rough!

Thank goodness LOST is on tonight and I have that happy little treat to look forward to.
