Sleep dep: spamming the lj begins

Well, and here we go: this is pretty much the limit of "normal bedtime" for me. I took a short nap in the afternoon as planned, but when I tried to take one this evening, I couldn't (stomach too upset), and now I'm not allowed. For another...about twelve hours, counting the time until I get there and then the test time. Meep.

I'm going to need to eat something in the next hour or two, but I'm not sure what will be reasonable. Cereal, maybe. Cereal is good. Cereal has blueberries in.

Some of you made one or two good suggestions for babbling topics. One of you made so many that I'll be set for random topic prompts for weeks. Much appreciated, thanks.

I've been plenty awake enough to read down on the couch, so that's what I've been doing. I finished matociquala's Worldwired, and it had the good problem for books with ensemble casts rather than the bad problem. (The bad problem comes about when I only care about one of the characters and resent having to read about the rest of these stupid people. The good problem comes when I care about all the characters and want more about all of them, so that a 400 page novel would be about 1200 pages: this is not a good want to indulge.) I'm in the middle of Ann Halam's Siberia now, and it appears to be genuine YA SF and not YA fantasy with SFnal decoration. So that'll be pretty neat if it keeps up.
