Sleep is a very good answer

I made it to the gym last night, even though I was in a terrible mood, and it helped some. Then I went to sleep at 8:30 or 9:00 pm and slept through. I guess a week's accumulation of sleep debt is worse than even a couple of nights' shortage.

I have a bit of a headache but feel much better. I can do my third gym visit of the week tonight, and will have met my goal!

I finished About Time: Volume 1 (the insanely detailed Dr. Who episode guide), and though volume 2 has just shipped along with my DVD of "Reign of Terror," I gave in this morning and ordered the rest of the series. Geektastic Happy Birthday to me!

While looking for something else, I came across an old email from a fannish friend with whom I once collaborated. She moved away over a decade ago, and we lost touch pretty quickly - I'm not sure if she even continued in fandom. Maybe she wanted to be done with that part of her life. Anyway, I pulled out the story we wrote together and still think it was really good. Alas, I don't feel right about posting it to Archive of Our Own without her permission. I hope she's still writing something somewhere. Maybe I will get to read it someday, even if I don't know it's hers.

I wish I'd kept in touch with more of the folks from my early days in fandom, but it's been such a long time that I guess people naturally drift apart and find other interests. Who knows, we may have nothing in common any more. But it's strange to look back and think how close I felt to them then, and yet I hardly ever think of them now. I am still in touch with a few of them, but not as much as I ought to be.

Clearly, I need to drink some coffee.
