I’m on call at work for a week. Of course, last night being the first night on call, I got paged at 3 AM with some problem that we had no real solution to. (I also seem to have a cold now.) My brain snapped at me, “What are you doing getting up! It is time for the slumber! I demand that you return to bed!” I said, “Silence! Or you shall have no Mountain Dew and Cracklin’ Oat Bran tomorrow!” My brain and I dazedly shuffled through program logs trying to find the problem for two hours. It’s weird the way the brain alternately falls asleep and spazzes out when you are awakened in the middle of the night and have to stay awake.
