...incessant phone calls, makes a man angry. Very angry indeed.
After a sleep-deprived weekend, I ended up going to bed at 8 last night, and falling asleep immediately. Then being woken up a few minutes later by a political robot. Back to sleep. Phone. Repeat.
This is not good. Every time I'm woken up by a loud (or otherwise alarming) noise, I leap out of bed severely disoriented, with my heart racing.
Eventually dump the phone outside the bedroom and hope that my parents don't have any medical emergencies.
And so, after what turned out to be a long and fitful night, I ended up sleeping late this morning. But that won't keep me from ambling down to the polling place at 0700 to vote NO on just about everything!
(Seriously, the whole "voter initiative" thing has gone bonkers; we keep having "initiatives" placed there by the ruling party, which wants to raise our taxes but doesn't want to take responsibility for doing so. Instead, the Party announces that the legislature can't do its job because, and I quote, "the forces of Snowball have sabotaged the windmill," and then try to badger us into raising our own taxes.)
