I decided to stay up extra long and go to sleep sunday afternoon to get my sleep schedule somewhat back on track. Unfortunatly my body had decided by 3pm that it wasn't really tired anymore, despite the fact i'd been up for 24 hours. I managed to froce myself to sleep sometime between 3:30 and 4, but then got woken up by my cat pawing at me at about 7:30 or 8 =P

This time my body really didn't want to go back to sleep, and i had to work on it for what felt like another hour before i fell asleep again. It certainly didn't help that the cat spent most of the time pawing at my face until she finally decided to settle down on my chest towards the end.

Now when i got up i'd been planning to go to The Hat and get some chilli cheese fries just before the closed, since i had some In-n-Out at 5pm on saturday and have just snacked on some chocolate and ice cream since then. However when i got up at 1am it was still raining lots =/ So now i'm figuring that i can go to del taco if the rain dies off before i leave for work, but i'd been looking forward to the hat's fries :( I don't think i'm going to do the DMV this morning unless it's gotten a lot drier in 4 or 5 hours. I may try to go to work earlier than normal so i can get home and get to sleep earlier. Both because my schedule is still slightly shifted and because i need to get up kind of early for the convention tomorrow. Registration starts at 7 i think, and we're supposed to be done with that in time for the keynote address at 8.

And finally when i came out to the computer this morning i noticed ants crawling around on the floor. First ants i've seen in here in over a year. I still haven't figured out what they're attacking, unfortunatly (i guess?) there aren't enough of them yet to trace to their origin or destination yet. Once i do i'll have to try the mint spray again since it seemed to work so well last time.

People were nuts on the road today. While i was on the 605 there were three people who must have been street raching or something. At least the three of them were sticking pretty close together while all weaving in and out of traffic with very small margins and going at least 20 mph faster than everyone else. And of course it was still raining and the road was soaking wet. Then when i was getting onto the 210 the guy in the next lane over apparently didn't notice that his lane was merging and he was heading into a truck, so then he suddenly started moving over into _my_ lane to get out of the way of the truck and i had to brake fairly hard to get behind him.

In less exciting news i found out this morning what the ants were attacking, my leftover candy canes :( It looks like only one or two had broken wrappers, so i'm wondering if i can declare the rest to be okay. Then as i was heading out the door i found out how the ants were getting into the apartment. The door =P So i quickly grabed the mint spray and sprayed the edges of the door, and i'm trying not to think about what happened to the poor ants who were trapped inside the apartment =/

I should be getting to bed fairly soon. The conference thing is at the Anaheim Hilton, which means it's about 15 minutes closer than normal (or more depending on traffic.) However registration starts at 7 and we're all supposed to be there for the keynote address being presented by the president of the company at 8, so being late for that would obviously be a bad idea. Leaving at 6:30 would _probably_ be safe, but i'm tempted to leave closer to 6 just to be sure.

And speaking of that apparently we get to do a late night thing at Disneyland on saturday. Of course that means that i probably shouldn't be going to Dungeon this week. Not sure how much fun Disneyland would be alone, so hopefully i'll be able to leach onto someone.
