Never sleep.

It was another early morning for Firefly this morning, and I got up as usual,
but wasn’t feeling well (starting to sniffle) so I figured I’d avoid the gym,
stay up for a bit to see her off, then buggeroff back to bed where I should be,
and wake up at a leisurely hour (say, 9 or 10 or so). Well, it almost worked.
I got involved with something, dealing with email from the previous night or
something, and around 7 or 7:30 finally figured that hey, it’s getting light
out, time to head to bed.

I spent the next couple of hours drifting in and out of sleep, having the most
bizzare dreams (and those of you who have read this before will know
that means a lot). The only one I semi-remember involved my glasses breaking
somehow, except the glass on them wasn’t just the lenses, but there was glass on
the sides as well, and by the nose bridge (almost as if they were wrap around
sunglasses, but not). I remember sitting there with a handful of glass (much
more than could have come from a pair of glasses) say something like “oh that’s
going to bugger things up.”

The phone tore me out of my fitful slumber, and I went and uploaded HTML for the
designers I’ve been working with. The project is, as far as I can see, done.
There will probably be some tweaks here and there for the client (who was
apparently given a tour today), but other than that, all is finished. I
managed to throw out a quote on another job for them as well (whoho!). A couple
of little things I got to play with was the “oh yea, they want a stock ticker”
at the last minute. Glad to let you know that Finance::YahooQuote
completely rocks πŸ™‚

Here’s a couple of desktop screenshots for ya’llz amusement. Here’s my gnome 2 desktop (800k) and one of the kde 3.1beta2 desktop (344k) that I spent the day
waiting for the compile to finish. It seems damn fast though,
I’m quite impressed…. I may have to play around with it a bit more πŸ™‚
