Until the sun comes up.

Items needed shortly after arrival at work:

I had an essay to write that needed to be in the post today(it is) so much of my evening/night was occupied with looking at a book on the Colosseum and then staring at a blank page. This was no use so I found things to do in-between bouts of staring until midnight when I finally began to write in bits and pieces. This carried on until 5:36 a.m. and my alarm goes of at 7:10 a.m. I knew that if I went to sleep I would not get up in the morning so I spent the rest of my time dozing in front of a video. So now I work with no real sleep but an intake of caffeine, nicotine and sugar(which can be close enough when need be).

These past two days Ive been talking to people and Ive found out that two hours of my memory is missing from Saturday night, from after my speech(about 11:00 p.m.) to about 1:00 a.m. I have been informed that this mostly involved dancing with numerous people onto the dance floor and at one point carrying someone towards the dance floor. I have no recollection of these events. I do not like this fact, it is a bad fact. Alcohol has only served to enhance my memory in the past, never to damped it let alone remove entire chunks.
