Today, I was a shambling wreck
When I was in college, I would pull an all-nighter nearly every week. IIRC, it was typically Thursday/Friday. I was fine with it, usually.

But that was pushing two decades ago. Now when I stay up all night, I'm a shamble the next day and so. And while I'm glad I read the new Harry Potter book, it was really unwise, there were things I wanted to do today that I couldn't...

I did get much of the scheduled stuff on my calendar done tho. I picked up my ex jezel, and Smudge, and took them to the vet. Smudge needed some tech work, and hauling her from West Seattle to Shoreline on jezel's scooter is not something to be done. I got to see jezel's new apt and to meet her roommates. And I put in an appearance at the monthly binetseattle saturday social. We had a new person show up!

I spend some phone time chatting with amythis about HP7. Almost universally today, when I mention that I've read it, everyone immediately says something like "dont tell me, i've not finished it yet!". It was nice to actually talk to someone who had finished it.

After stopping at the pharmacy, I collapsed back into my unmade bed, and got in a few more hours, then pulled myself out to watch Shortbus with solomoning and gipsieee.

No, we actually had two new people there today. Just because the other lady was my date does not remove her from the count.

Well, you knew I was likely to finish it early. ;-) I called my friend Lauren at 8 p.m. because the post-book "what do I do now?" feeling had started. (Esp as I'd blocked out the whole weekend to read, and it's a nice rainy weekend for that.) She'd gotten up to Chapter Eight and didn't want to spoil it for one of the friends she's staying with, who was on Chapter Two. :-J So I just told Lauren about my adventures before getting the book, talked about the movie for a couple minutes (like me, she's seen it twice, though I'd be willing to go again, hint hint), and a bit about our lives, and then we hung up after 10 minutes.

I'm so proud of myself for not spoiling the book for anyone, self included. :-)

Sorry you were wrecked though. I hope today is better.

Man, I did so many all-nighters in university too. Started in high school. I can't do it anymore. I've tried, but I lost the energy; I think the 9-5 lifestyle tires me out more than the cram lifestyle of school ever did.

I had planned to do what you did: get the book Friday night, stay up reading it. I ended up going to bed at 10:30pm instead. I am so ashamed.

Did you love Shortbus? I did.
