The Awkward Pause

Yesterday was a better day. We had a pre-St. Patrick’s Day party at the office, which the little man thoroughly enjoyed. And when I arrived home Armchair Apocrypha was waiting for me. And two nights in a row? I managed to sleep straight through. 10:30pm-6am. The most sleep I’ve gotten in ages. A friend knew I’d been having trouble with the whole sleep thing, and suggested I drink some chamomile tea before bed. I had to laugh. Chamomile is in the ragweed family. Which causes my skin to become red and puffy and my throat to swell. It figures, what is soothing for most people is an irritant for me. Then again, I’ve always found the punk rock to be comforting. Go figure.

We have a swell Saturday lined up. A morning spent lounging in pajamas (check). Playing around with flickr’s new collections feature (check). Heading off to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which we missed last year because we were leaving for Iceland. Sigh. After that it’s off to the little man’s swimming lesson. Then we’ll squeeze in some library visits before an evening of lounging in pajamas.

Bonus: The Fabulist reminded me about Flight of the Conchords, a very funny folk/pop/comedy duo from New Zealand. Naturally they’re all over YouTube. I spent last night watching clips before bed and that made me very very happy.

    WMD: hmmm… sounds like your friend may be trying to knock you off… be on guard and watch out too for that suspicious green tea, I hear it’s trouble.
    Hope you feel better!
