Decisions, Decisions

I would seem to have two options about what to do tonight. One is to, within the next half hour, call in sick to work and spend the entire rest of the evening (up until about 3am, to be reasonable) playing Metroid Prime 2. The other is to go to work, making a stop at 7-11 for Slurpees for Manoah and I on the way in, then being able to see firsthand if Tom really is getting a swelled head (as it were) and giving orders to people as if he were a manager, which he was apparently doing over supper on Wednesday. My decision should already be obvious - I'd like to keep my sick days for when I'm actually sick, which I am not right now - and I am looking forward to closing with Manoah again, after having fun with him on Wednesday, but making it farther in Metroid Prime 2 also has its advantages, considering I had to start over yesterday.

Just before that, I was up to the first save point in Torvus Bog, which was right where I started getting tired, leading to deciding to take a break. During said break, I looked over a point-by-point walkthrough of the game on GameFAQs, because I thought I'd been doing a really good job for scanning everything (even objects that didn't count toward 100% completion), but as it turns out, I forgot to scan Amorbis's second form (and that's the boss you fight to get the Dark Suit, no less), so what did I decide to do, after spending two or three hours taking an extended break in my room to watch episodes of Ghost Adventures? Started over. That's right. Erased the save file, and started from the beginning, from where I was able to make it up to the first save point in Agon Wastes before calling it a night. So far it's been overall no different than before, except for putting my missiles to good use before losing them, and also, properly pulling off the technique required to get an extra missile launcher, which will apparently lead to having 101% completion at the end of the game. I truly do think it would be fun to just take tonight off and do nothing but play that, but I'd really like to get paid as much as I did this week on our next pay again, which won't be possible if I call in because I think I have better things to do.

Otherwise though, I just feel tired today, which shouldn't be, because I got eight and a half hours of sleep. Maybe it's because I haven't left my room yet, or, more likely, it's from all the snacks I've had since Tuesday. Right now, I'm in this routine of eating sensibly on days that I work, which is all of them except for Tuesday and Thursday, but then when a day off comes, getting whatever I want from 7-11 and Tim Hortons, which certainly has to leave me feeling somewhat lethargic. Perhaps it would be a good idea to try taking it easy this coming week, especially on Thursday, since we'll also be going out to supper that night. I can see going to only one place per night helping, so I think I'll start there. I'm going off to continue with Metroid Prime 2 again though, and to find out just what it's going to take to wake me up. Maybe a shower first would help...
