The only thing that makes me feel better about being up at five a.m. Chicago time is that it is six a.m. Indiana time. Let's not look at the fact that I went to bed at midnight. Having a drink last night was a mistake. I always wake up Really Damn Early whenever I have any alcohol. I suspect VVC will be experienced in a state of near-constant sleep deprivation. [eta: I was right.]
It may (will definitely) be worth it. [eta: And right again.]
My poor roommates may have been woken with my rummaging around in the dark. I really hope not. My first attempt to grab shoes, my purse, and quietly sneak out met with two failures. One, no matter how gently I eased the door, it makes a very, very loud click as the lock engages. Two, I stole someone else's sandals. [eta: I later discovered they were cherryice
's.] I had to go back in, necessitating two more giant clicks, and resorted to using my phone as a very dim flashlight so there was no more accidental thievery.
And this, after my first impression to thirdblindmouse
was likely of a frazzled babbling person, because man do I get like that when tired, and I woke up at three yesterday, but only wandered to the hotel room for sleeping at eleven-something.
For those of you who didn't go on the great fangirl Chicago outing yesterday, it was awesome. For those who did, you already know. Highlights included Millenium Park, Ghirardelli Chocolates (and the both best and most terrible cappucino--hot, amazing; cold, an abomination unto caffeine), and [Bad username or unknown identity: svmadelyn site=]
's favorite pizza place (the name of which, as ever, escapes me).
There are a number of people I need to add from the trip, and I still need to add back most of the people I trimmed from my f-list in preparation of visiting Japan, so I suspect the next several days is going to be some sort of adding frenzy for me.
Also! It's slowly come to my attention (very slowly; sometimes I just do not pay that much attention) that hey, some of you whose DW I follow are still only posting to LJ. I didn't take you off because I didn't want to read you! I just thought I wouldn't be reading you twice, not that I suddenly wouldn't be reading you at all. Working to correct that.
