Currently drowning in homework. Am far more snowed under than I imagined I'd be. The more times I go back and re-read my syllabi the more I realize I missed the first time around. That's probably because I fainted from the stress of what I did read, fell and hit my head, and never got through all of it. Every time I look at the assignments I cackle madly like an insane person, hoping someone will hear and have me committed. Anything for a justifiable reason to have a little extra time to complete assignments.
In other news, being exhausted and over-worked has been producing some rather odd incidents in my life. Yesterday I left my travel coffee mug on the back of my husband's car, while loading up homework to take with me to work. Somehow I totally forgot the coffee mug, which rolled off the back of the car as I backed down the driveway. Hearing the odd plastic-like sound of the mug hitting the driveway I stopped, but then shrugged and thought I was imagining things. Then I ran over the mug.
Today, after working at the library and working out at the gym, I was sitting comfortably on the sofa doing homework. I put my head back, just for a moment, and fell asleep, hands still on keyboard. I jolted awake about half an hour later, when my laptop started sliding off my lap. Luckily, unlike the unfortunate mug, I caught the computer before it hit the floor.
In a final bit of excitement, over the course of just this last week I've fallen asleep multiple times reading homework in bed, waking up to find I'd dropped a highlighter on my shirt while blissfully dozing away. When you drop a highlighter on your shirt you wind up with a nice, big, spreading stain. For the record, it washes out. At least so far.
Otherwise, not a lot to report, unless you consider reading articles and getting high on highlighter fumes exciting fare. Stay tuned for more misadventures as they occur.
