woxin wince

Weary all of the time

Rain yesterday evening, heavy and prolonged and leading to thoughts of flooded basements, which didn't happen, or at least didn't happen where I could see. Preceded all day by rainy season grey saturated clouds and cool muggy wind, which I can live with, sort-of. Better than the muggy sun we're having now. For some reason decided this was a good time to start Stardust, tattered copy picked off the boulevard, and as far as I got it was. Sort of Neil Gaiman meets Lud-in-the-Mist with a dose of Susanna Clarke. Whether it carries on the same I cannot say, because I had an 8 am shift this morning that required going to bed at 10:30. And waking irrevocably at 1 am with chest cramps that are actually a hiatus hernia and acid reflux. Got a few more hours after 4, before waking three minutes ahead of the alarm at 6:30.

Must go back for another 90 minutes. Am figuring how to caffeinate myself for this in view of said hernia being unhappy. Tonight I keep AC on and sleep the sleep of the overworked just, because I'm convinced muggy air coming in with the window fan is causing all this achiness and cramping.
