Ok, it's been weeks, I had to do a poll.

What Video Game Character Are You? I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.I am a Gauntlet Adventurer.

I strive to improve my living conditions by hoarding gold, food, and sometimes keys and potions. I love adventure, fighting, and particularly winning - especially when there's a prize at stake. I occasionally get lost inside buildings and can't find the exit. I need food badly. What Video Game Character Are You?

The past two days in a row, I've woken up before my alarm has gone off, by a good half-hour at least. The few days before that I also woke up early, but I was at my mom's place and the kids were sleeping in the same room so that wasn't my fault, or avoidable.

Now, this is strange simply because once I fall asleep, I'm usually quite a deep sleeper, and in fact tend to react somewhat violently (in mood if not in action, although possibly both depending on the circumstances) to being woken up. I usually have to hit the snooze alarm a half-dozen times before I wake up. So what the hell is going on?

I haven't been getting any more sleep than usual, and I've still been tired recently, so it doesn't seem to be any more deep or useful sleep than usual. I just wake up early. It's almost disturbing, and at the very least is annoying. That extra 30 or 40 minutes of sleep each morning certainly wouldn't hurt, and might help.

I've also been unable to sleep on the bus ride into work, which is another lost half-hour of sleep. Boggin, it's really annoying. It's not like I've got anything better to do, so I just stayed up and stared at the road for 45 minutes as the bus made its way into the city.

Oh well. Ironically waking up that early tends to make me late, because I get annoyed at being up so early, go off and do things like check email or write LJ posts, and end up getting started even later than usual as I get caught up in them. Like, um, this post. Uh, yeah. I think I'll go get ready now.

Food poisoning... bad, or just misunderstood?

So I went to the bank and got some money out, because you know, in my line of work I need a lot of cash on hand.

I don't know what that meant, but it sounded good.

Since I was right near an Au Bon Pain (note: foreshadowing - it ends in PAIN) I stopped in and got lunch - a grilled chicken caesar salad, something I've always found to be dependable and decent from them. Well, I got back, and opened it up, and took a look... it seemed a bit... subdued.

Then I started eating it. The lettuce was wilty and brown, almost brown-red in parts, but crispy in others. Kinda weird. I think it was because the croutons had an extra-large amount of flavoring on them, and it was brownish-red. BUT the lettuce really was brown in a lot of places, and sort of nasty-squishy. I ate around half of it and then threw it out when it started to burn the back of my throat*. Nastiness. I ate the bread, though, thank god I stopped to get the roll you get with it.

Now I'm surprisingly chipper and not overly vomitorious, but I wonder if maybe I'm going to start hallucinating or something soon. Then again, as I told lilhlfpint, I'm feeling pretty good so I must be dying or something.

Actually at this point I'm feeling sort of sick and headachey and wondering if it really was bad, but I'm also surprisingly happy, so that's ok too.

I've got tomorrow thru. Tuesday off, so I've got a nice 5-day weekend to recover from this. Actually, it'd be pretty cool if I did start hallucinating, I've never done that before and I've heard it's pretty nifty, in a sort of freaky bad way. I'm not into that whole drug scene thang, so I need to get my natural** highs where I can, y'know. ;)

* - Some of you might in fact stop eating before the throat-burning part, when you start to notice it going weird... but... well, I paid like $5 and change for this damn salad, so I was going to eat it. Or at least give it a shot.

** - The naturalness of food poisoning is, I suppose, debateable, but whatever.

Awesome spam

I haven't opened it, as I don't generally open spam, but the subject alone was worth mentioning:

Pill to Increase Your Ejaculation by 581%

It's just so classic, in so many ways.

First off, it's so specific, and, uh, impressive...? It's not 200%, it's not 300%, it's five-hundred-and-eighty-one percent. Five hundred and eighty-one.

Of course, as if that wasn't cool enough, you can't forget what it's about. It doesn't promise to trim your fat, or grow your dick, or give you bigger, firmer boobs - it increases your ejaculation. It turns you into a virtual spooge cannon. You don't just pop off, now, you plaster every surface in sight. Almost six times the normal amount. That's enough to "drown small animals" to quote arachne. Man.

Five hundred and eighty one percent.

You can't beat that.
