Last night I cancelled my date due to exhaustion. Nautrally, sleep hated me and I ended up bouncing unsteadily off the walls until nearly 1am due to yesterday's caffination. Naturally, today requires more caffeine. *sigh*
In more positive news, my alienware machine arrived yesterday. It's very pretty, and alienware make well-designed machines. I'm seriously impressed by their attention to detail. The only downside (beyond a slightly emabrassing mistake *I* made) is that the pretty box is too big. It is too tall for the PC shelf in my desk, and with it under my desk, I can't get the chair as close to the desk as I would prefer. I'll figure something out eventually. Maybe even something that *doesn't* require power tools.
I has a plan for Hallowe'en. Naturally, it's changed in my head so that it requires sewing something I don't have a pattern for. However: SCIENCE!
