The most prominent of those things is that as of tonight, Walmart is open 24 hours. My list of things to look for / buy there isn't terribly long - four items, two of which are optional, but I still fully intend to look at the blankets, as well as the Christmas candy. I'm almost hoping work is busy enough that Manoah asks me to stay and close, because I'd stand a better chance of being able to get breakfast from McDonalds, but there's something else I haven't mentioned yet. After confirming Walmart's hours, I checked Real Canadian Superstore's website, and guess what? They're only open 'til midnight right now, so I wouldn't be able to go there tonight either way, but starting next Sunday (the 16th), presumably all the way through until the 23rd, they're open 24 hours as well. Mind you, there's less appeal there than going to Walmart provides, because I'm really not interested in just going out to buy groceries, but browsing through there would be fun as well, and I pretty well missed any chance I had to go there last year, aside from the 23rd. Regardless, a nice walk out there could be exactly what I need to get me away from these other things for the night. Instantbird and Skype are still both closed, and I'm still logged into my email account only on the chance I get a couple emails that I'm hoping for (one of which would be to inform me that my copy of DJMAX Technika Tune has been shipped), so I'm about as removed from things as I can get right now.
Last night was kind of interesting in that regard. I closed both of the aforementioned programs around 11:30, and then either due to being overwhelmed by the way I was feeling, or just from fatigue, I kind of drifted in and out of sleep for a good couple hours. I didn't lay down in bed, but rather just laid back into my pillows, closed my eyes, and drifted off for a bit. The first time it was only ~15 minutes. I can't remember how long the second was, and if there was a third, I don't remember it at all. The only thing I do remember after that is waking up, remembering where I was and what had been going on before I nodded off, and being so caught up in conflict and agitation that I couldn't do anything. I just laid there, repeatedly thinking that I should at least go out to 7-11, because that was my plan for the night earlier in the afternoon, then eventually deciding that I didn't feel like going to 7-11, but I was still hungry and therefore should have something to eat, even though I didn't have the will to make anything, or even go downstairs for it. Eventually, I dragged myself up and out of bed, grabbed a carton of juice from the fridge in the basement, went back upstairs, and just drank that while I fiddled around for the next couple hours. I finished a couple more puzzles in Picross 2, completed (in the "beat the game" sense) a Super Mario World hack that really came to enjoy, started into a new one, and then finally called it a night sometime around 5. As for today, I'm disappointed again that no more packages have arrived, but apart from that, things are exactly as I described them above / in my previous entry. There are some additional details I would like to make note of, but I find I can't even think about doing that without compromising both my mood, and the mood of this entry. Perhaps that's a good sign, but it's too early to tell.
I'd like to have a shower and shave before work though, so I'm off to do that now. Maybe even that will help, but last I noticed, the hose up where it connects to the shower head was broken. Somebody else was in there having a shower earlier, however, so perhaps it's not as bad as I'm thinking. Time to go find out~
