Congrats to Laurie, who won the copy of K. Z. Snow’s m/m romance, The Prayer Waltz!
- Will my current refrigerator last long enough for my backordered refrigerator to arrive?
- Inquiring minds really, really want to know.
- Although I’m pretty sure it makes no difference to those ten-year old pickles…
- Monday night I had to work an upgrade.
- My part consisted of staying awake until 1:25 am (yay! they didn’t think they were going to be ready for me until 3:00 am!), then doing quality assurance testing for one hour.
- After which, I couldn’t fall asleep until 3:30 or 4:00 am.
- Later in the morning, I was sitting on my couch in a stupor and preparing to log in and work for a few hours when my boss called to tell me about a noon meeting that I really, really needed to attend.
- It was 11:45 am.
- I managed to shower and get there by 12:30, which I thought was pretty good.
- I think my boss was just happy that I got there. 🙂
- I spent the rest of the day feeling as if I was having an out-of-body experience.
- Have I mentioned that I really don’t do sleep disruption very well?

I do have weeks and days like that sometimes… too much to do, too little time…
That Mayhem is become a little big headed – she certainly loves the camera – or is it the camera that loves her….

Fingers crossed on the fridge. It’s backordered? Have they given you an ETA?
Over tiredness = yuk…which reminds me…I must sleep 🙂
.-= oranniaÂ´s last blog ..The Spare =-.
I hope they’re paying you really well!!!
.-= lisaÂ´s last blog ..morning kayak =-.
That’s cruel and unusual work conditions! A new refrigerator is a great way to clean out the old.
Mayhem, you are one scary grrrl. ;-D

Oh, wow. Bet you slept well last night. At least I hope you did.
Backordered appliances: eep!
.-= trekÂ´s last blog ..Missing the point =-.
I am so sorry. I also don’t do well with sleep disruption. (Much as I’m looking forward to going away this weekend, I am NOT looking forward to leaving my house at 7:30am on Friday. I usually sleep from midnight to 8, and I’ve been slightly late-shifted since working late on Saturday.)
.-= naomiÂ´s last blog ..eye candy friday =-.
Chris- If I don’t sleep, well, I probably would look very much like your ten year old pickles. Yikes!
.-= LorraineÂ´s last blog ..Does That Come in Size "Huge"? =-.
Hope your fridge makes it! Although that’s a good excuse to eat out, right?
Hope you got some sleep after the meeting!
Good luck with the fridge!
Yikes on the sleep-in. But nothing much happens in the first half-hour of a meeting anyway, does it?
.-= Cheryl S.Â´s last blog ..FO: Drops 105-6 top =-.
May’s picture looks a bit like the effect of sleep disruption too!
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..leveling up =-.
That work things sounds awful. Ugh. Thankfully I never have to work all night. 🙂 Hope you are catching up on your rest.
.-= TamÂ´s last blog ..A minute to update =-.
I hope the fridge makes it to you quick.
Ugh, sounds like a truly bad night and day. Hope you’re recovered now.
*backs away really slowly before May sees me* 🙂

Poor baby. Nefarious evil-doers and linkity dealers need their rest!
.-= wrenÂ´s last blog ..National Poetry Month =-.
Yikes, well at least you got there.
Scary kitty *hides*
.-= blodeueddÂ´s last blog ..Winners!!!!!! =-.
I’m STILL trying to get used to DST! I do not handle sleep disturbances at all either. 🙁
LOL Mayhem, that is just too funny a picture to be scared!
.-= BrigitteÂ´s last blog ..Old Friends =-.
I hope you have caught up on your sleep! And that your frig arrives soon. May sure looks cranky. Are all her pink furry mice under the dying frig?
.-= BrendaÂ´s last blog ..Catching up in photos =-.
Well, my sleep deprivation was not from meeting or work… but I am still trying to catch up on my sleep from my weekend….
But I wanted to pop in here to see how you and my ktties were doing!!!
I see one sleeping (yesterdays) and one is just giving dirty looks (cuz big kittie did something to her probably)!!
Hope all is well honey!!!
I keep warning people to avoid looking at the bags under my eyes. They’ll turn to stone! Major sleep disruptions lately! Hate it. I feel for you!
.-= Julia Rachel BarrettÂ´s last blog ..Tomorrowland? Iâ€™m thinking moreâ€¦Yesterlandâ€¦ =-.
LOL MAY!!! That’s a great picture!!! Hope the new fridge gets here soon. Wouldn’t want anything to happen to those pickles…
Oh, Chaos, we know you really aren’t that mean and tough.
Yeah, and if you believe that…
.-= kmkatÂ´s last blog ..Because I know you wanted to know. =-.
Oh, gosh, hope you get a chance to catch up on your sleep! And that’s some kitty photo. I think she’s even flashing us a bit of fang, ha, ha!
.-= Val KovalinÂ´s last blog ..Review Happy Snak by Nicole Kimberling =-.
Good eye there, Val – she is!
I’m feeling a bit more rested today everyone – thanks!
what a ferocious panther princess!
I am not scared of Mayhem.
How’s your luck lately? If it’s been pretty good, you may be able to squeeze some time out of that fridge.
The fridge thing has me paranoid now. Just a little, but paranoid none the less that an appliance is going to go kaput.
May—-that is such an evil look!
Congrats to Laurie!
I keep my fingers crossed for your fridge! You don’t want those pickles go walking by themselves 🙂
I’m glad you’re feeling more rested today!
Oww, very vampy, May!
.-= ErotRomReader JannaÂ´s last blog ..One Authorâ€™s POV on POV: Guestpost & Giveaway with Sloan Parker =-.
It looks like May had her ears cleaned a few too many times. 🙂
Ah mystery foods in the refrigerator. I found some potatoes the other day that had long vines on them, not just sprouts. Hope your backordered refrigerator arrives soon.
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Ferret Spring Fever =-.
That’s an awesome pic of May! 🙂
I’m a queen of odd sleep schedules. 5 hrs during the work week, 12 on the weekend. I tell myself all is cool since it averages out to 7 a night. LOL
.-= Ava MarchÂ´s last blog ..Nook Lovin’ =-.
That’s an awesome picture of Mayhem! I love it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, it helps on days like these.
PS. I hope the new refrig arrives on time!
PSS. I finally upgraded laptop from Vista 64 to Windows 7. Not too bad…except Win7 can’t decide if I have a DVD drive or not. 🙁
Amazing…just amazing. Tell me your secret how can one shower in less than 15 minutes?
Gah. Hope you at least had a delicious meal of some sort.
.-= Carolyn CraneÂ´s last blog ..Day of questions! =-.
Umm . . . did the kitty go overboard on the catnip? When my students have that expression on their faces, it usually means they’re high.
Your ten year old pickles belong beside my five year old ketchup.
.-= EyreÂ´s last blog ..Thursday . . . =-.
I hope that you were able to take a nap maybe… a little purr induced shut-eye always help me.
I’ll cross my fingers for your fridge. It’s no fun when they stop working.
Sounds like a grueling schedule – I don’t manage well on too little sleep either. I love May’s expression there.
.-= mrspaoÂ´s last blog ..In the door =-.
I’m in the same failing appliance boat. Lotsa luck with yours until the new one arrives.
And the expression on May’s face is downright Dirty Harry! Make my day – with tuna.
.-= Karen B.Â´s last blog ..We are everywhere! =-.
That is a great picture of May!
