The Pros and Cons of Sleep Deprivation

Sailor stayed over last night and needed to leave at 6:00 to get to work on time (the ghastly hour of 7:30). After I let him out I debated going back to bed, but I knew that the hour and a half of sleep I'd get wouldn't be worth the difficulty in having to get out of bed for a second time that day. Getting up is bad enough. Why subject yourself to having to do it twice? Instead, I decided to go into work early. And that I did, arriving at 7:50 am. At 8:30 A and G noticed that I was already working and stopped by my cube to ask me if anything was wrong. I just pretended to be really into my job.

It's almost 3:00 now. I am so sleepy I can barely string thoughts together. Yet despite my mildly hallucinatory state, I have come up with several interesting innovations relating to projects and affairs at work today. Ironic isn't it, that despite my almost complete lack of verbal skills, I come up with the best ideas I've had in months? Apparently, being totally off whack is quite conducive to creativity.

Addendum: After sending Sailor an email complaining that his role in my Thursday night/Friday morning had resulted in my loss of beauty sleep he sent an oh-so delightful response informing me that not only did he manage to score the afternoon off, but that he "is currently naked and about to take a several hour long nap." I hate him. Okay, not really. But still.

Most of the time the best ideas I have are when I'm in bed.

Then again, 99 times out of 100 that idea is "stay in bed" which is an awesome idea at the time.

That's just unfair. Naked and napping. He should suffer, too.
