Last night I had a sudden feeling if illness. It hit pretty quickly and I decided I'd take a nap before my scheduled 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons game at 8pm. I ended up passing out in my chair, only to have my wife wake me up at 9pm, at which point I stumbled upstairs, didn't set any alarms, and just crashed. I slept until 0715 this morning, which is 2 hours late for me, but I felt fine. I'm guessing my body was just telling me that I needed sleep.
On my drive into work (in much heavier traffic than normal) I tried to listen to the latest Podcastle, but couldn't get into it, so I told the trusty iPod to "shuffle all". Now, doing that on my iPod can be interesting, since my musical tastes include just about everything... Mozart and Bach, to country, to old school DC Punk, to reggae, to indie, to death metal, to hiphop. This morning though, it gave me a perfect playlist and I didn't have to skip through anything.
1) Operation Ivy - I Got No
2) The Bloodhound Gang - Your Only Friends Are Make Believe
3) Matisyahu - Dispatch the Troops
4) Danzig - How the Gods Kill
5) Prodigy - Serial Thrilla
6) Polecats - My Baby Said #2
7) Incubus - Idiot Box
8) PM Dawn - Intro
9) Paw - Last One
I didn't skip through anything, and when each song came on, it was perfect for the traffic I was in, and the mood I was in. I've never had that happen before, and it worked quite well.
Now I'm at work, and finishing up a database migration that has been giving me grief for quite a while now. I hope to get it done this week.
