The rancour of the sleep-deprived

Thought, after Wednesday's broken night, I'd need some extra sleep. Wednesday night- or rather, early Thursday morning- was when my cell phone company changed hands, so what do they do? Message me at 2:15 to tell me it happened; message me at 3:20 to tell me how to get into my voicemail; and messaged me several times thereafter but by then I'd muted the damned thing, trusting that if anyone needed me they'd call my landline. (Never giving up landline nope no way.)

So last night I prepared for a morning shift by going to bed before 11 and setting my phone for 8, hoping my body would wake me at 7 or 7:30. 'Every hour before midnight counts as two!' Yes, well. Was woken by phone at 8. And now wonder when I'll wake up tomorrow, when I have a 1 pm appointment.
