That aside though, I can't explain it, but I feel utterly tired and drained and physically and emotionally exhausted, even though my afternoon was only moderately more serious than normal, and work was quite fun, due to it not being busy because of all the snow, and Laura and I thus having ample time to get as much done early as possible, which made it possible for us to be out of there at 1:30. I haven't eaten a whole lot of food today either - less than normal, to be sure, but I feel slightly nauseous right now, as if I've eaten too much - and got only ~30 minutes less sleep than I've been getting for the past half a week, none of which would seem to explain why I feel the way we do. Other most likely unrelated things are that I got a sliver at work tonight, and Laura thought I was actually cutting myself with my knife trying to pick it out, and this bubble-forming thing I have going on has progressed to the point where the bubbles have lost some of their thickness, but made up for that by being salty. It is the strangest thing, but seriously, they taste salty. It's a good thing I have only two cans of Pepsi left, because if the two things are related, I don't want to see what will come after this. I think I might even buy a bottle of water from Dollarama on my way in to St. Clair tomorrow, so as to be able to rinse my mouth out periodically during my class. That and gum, of course, but chewing that with other people there would be obnoxious, and I do not want that.
Otherwise, what more can be said of today? I had a fairly interesting chat with Dan before I left for work, which I was hoping to post an excerpt of the chat log of, but I can't until I'm sure about what it says, and I'm not sure, because it concerns a theory that I came up with only just yesterday. The general idea is that one of the overall reasons I might have issues with insecurity is because of my preference for ambiguity and uncertainty in how I think and act about nearly everything else, but until I can prove that that's actually the case, I don't want to say any more about it. I will however say that if I can find some place that sells acorns or acorn flour either here or in Toronto, that person who said they wanted acorns in their cookies will indeed be getting the closest I can give them, and otherwise, they'll be getting a recipe I found to make something that looks like an acorn, with a peanut butter chip, a small vanilla wafer cookie, and a Hershey's Kiss, all stuck together with peanut butter. Fun idea? Yes, definitely, and provided I can find all of the ingredients, those wouldn't take more than half an hour to make. Dan seemed to agree with the general idea as well (although he apparently didn't see the link to the recipe), because he said it would be cool if I was able to make something with acorns, however, even before he said that, I wanted to, because that's just one of the things I like to do. It is taking things that are presumably meant as a joke seriously, in a way, but to go there and do what other people weren't actually expecting is immensely enjoyable. The only example I can think of comes from an episode of Whose Line is it Anyway? that I can't remember the number of, but it's just that idea of them being joking, and me saying "Oh, you were joking? Well, I'm going to do what you said anyway, so I'll get back to you when I'm done". Of course, where cookies are concerned, if I did that, it would only be fair to make a batch of peanut butter balls as well, which I hadn't really been planning to do even though I saw that person say they were awesome a couple weeks ago, but there should still be icing sugar at the apartment, and I could just buy two jars of peanut butter instead of one, so we'll see.
I want to say anything else can wait until tomorrow, because it's after 6, and since I have good reason to wake up earlier than normal, I want to set alarms on both of my laptops (which are currently in use) tonight, to hopefully be up at 2. I don't think there's anything else going on tomorrow (yet), but the beginning of a new week is always kind of special, so maybe something interesting will happen instead of it just being a normal day. For example, receiving a response to the email I sent about Brandon's most recent online purchase (the really expensive one) apparently not having been shipped out yet. I suppose it's better than nothing~
