Right Back In Again

I wonder how Michele would respond to my taking a day off already... I will still go, but all I really want right now is to go back to sleep until I have to go to work, come home, enjoy an hour or so of Avernum 4 or whatever, and go back to sleep, to repeat the same process the next day, but minus going to work. I feel absolutely drained, raw, and just in an unpleasant mood, but also on one front, kind of excited. Among other things yesterday, I proposed to Dan that, should Mary grant me time off in August when a date for the furmeet is decided on, I might look into taking the first train to Toronto (departing at ~6am, and arriving at ~10am), head right back to the apartment, have a nap for a few hours, then go out grocery shopping with more time than before, so we can go to both Real Canadian Superstore and Food Basics in the same night. I kind that idea exciting, and at least as a theory, it is sound, because I did roughly the same for the staff meeting at work not too long ago, but aside from it, I just feel so overwhelmed that all I want is to go back to sleep. Why, though?

For one, I finished watching season 4 of Fringe just earlier today. Surprisingly decent, and the only questions I have now are what happened to William Bell, and whether the observers were as benevolent as they appeared throughout the rest of the series (Letters of Transit aside), but now I also have that excitement and interest renewed, but nowhere to go with it, as season 5 still appears to be an indefinite amount of time away. That's only contributing factor number one though, and as far as influence goes, it's more of a minor issue. Secondly, things about the furmeet. I find it actually really neat that I had more or less a direct influence in this comment being made, but the comments after it (at least the three that are there now) are... annoying. Back on the first page, Elezia said she preferred the 4th, but then, on the second page, seemingly suddenly remembered that she wouldn't be around then, and asked Dan if there was any chance it could be pushed back to the 11th. As for Daeryn, he / she simply said that they didn't want it to be on the 11th (before the possibility of having it on that date was even introduced), because they wouldn't be around then, and didn't want to miss out on the next furmeet. Fine, right? It's also understandable that they would post new comments stating their choice of date after Dan asked people to choose between the 4th and the 11th (the 28th is pretty much out of consideration now), but to approach the matter from an objective point of view, one way or the other, one of them won't be able to attend. Dan doesn't want to wait more than a week to book the party room, so although he didn't say it in there, the cutoff date for opinions is the 5th of June. Then there's sammypanther's comment of "sometime in july or august". Really? Rest assured, the furmeet will be sometime in August. Unless you're going to select one date or the other though, your comment is irrelevant. I probably wouldn't see it as so annoying if I didn't have these and other things on my mind, but I do, so... I do. As for the last one (that I can think of for now), I'm going to put it in a cut.

Other things aside though, I am now overdue for leaving for Heart and Stroke, so I need to be off. With any luck, the change in environment and specific task will help me to put these other things aside for the afternoon~
