This week I have gotten a grand total of fifteen (15) hours of sleep, six (6) of those being in the last three (3) days. Insomnia, yes. The leading theories are that I am evolving into a higher organism, or that the extra-strength decongestant is wreaking havoc with my system. Experiments to ensue. I and everyone is amazed I haven’t disintegrated into a shaking puddle of tears and irrationality. However, despite sleep deprivation and adventures with Crazy Anachronistic Muslim Jews and the Amazing Oedipal-Mosaic Judas, some Things of Note have happened this week, namely:

  1. A positive meeting with The Rheumatologist. I have, it has been said, stunningly perfect toes.
  2. Officially accepting the Offer of a Place as a Ph.D student. I had the rare opportunity of delivering my letter in person.
  3. Cut off a good foot (12″/30 cm) of my hair. I had an audience when The Hairdresser snipped off the ponytail that will soon be sent to Locks of Love.

hairHastily edited, alas, but here is your “before and after.”

Despite my seeming coherency, I feel like tightwalking on a bar of music, and so it is probably a Good Thing that I have an appointment made to see a GP on Monday morning.

    I did manage to get some sleep. I thank Sarah for supposing a chemical imbalance, but, without the sinus meds I have an awful headache. I guess it’s still a Good Thing that I’m seeing a GP on Monday.

    I think the pic looks great!

    Also, someone told me that cherries are high in melatonin, that they are in season, and that you should eat some 🙂 See, even people here who only met you once worry about you! I ❤ you…perhaps we can talk on Monday afternoon (my time about 3:30 or 4) if that isn't too late…

    I’m sorry about your imsomnia! You would probably make a great mother of a newborn!

    Good feet must run in the family because I think David has nice feet/toes too. He seems to think so also. He always makes fun of my second toe being longer than my big toe.

    Can’t believe you cut your hair, but it probably seems liberating. I really need a hair cut too.

    Hope you get some sleep soon!

    No, not yet. I realize that the picture above just makes it look like my hair is tied behind my back. That’s because the stylist used a straightener. When we Skype next you’ll get to see what it really looks like. It’ll probably be past my shoulder again by January.
