Weird Side Effects

I don’t know if this is a side effect of the treatment, or if it’s just because I’m spending so much time on it, but I’m making crazy progress at work. We’re working on a little project that I thought would take weeks to finish, but we’re just about done. I have been working more hours than I expected, but not overkill or anything. The funny thing is that I’ve been making some of the strangest bugs. It’s almost like I’m writing two programs at the same time. For the non-programmers reading: unlike DNA you can’t mix two programs together randomly and end up with something that works (usually). Thankfully my co-workers are quick to point out where I’ve gone wrong. I don’t know what I was thinking, but some of that code is downright silly. On the other hand, the code has just been pouring out, so I guess it all balances out.

It seems like everything is getting on my nerves lately. My long distance company keeps calling to try to get me to switch to them for my local service. I’d be happy to switch, but my DSL complicates everything, so I tell them I don’t want to do it today. I’ve asked them if I can just call them back next month when I’m ready to deal with all of this, and they still keep calling. Maybe I’ll switch both my local and long distance. That’ll show ’em. 🙂 I’ve got to get a new keyboard, why do they make keyboards so lound these days? There really should be more 24 hour stores. It’s not like we don’t have electricity, and we couldn’t see to shop once the sun goes down. *sigh* Thank god for Amazon.

Maybe I’m going crazy or something, but I could swear that I keep seeing people from the pharmacutical company around work. I don’t get it. The company that is running the tests is in Thousand Oaks. What would people from their be doing in Malibu? I hate to sound paranoid, but I think they might be watching me, and I don’t mean reading my blog. Of course, if they are: “Hi guys! Can I help you with something?” Maybe I’ll just ask next time I go in for a checkup.

It’s probably nothing. I’ve been having some weirdly vivid daydreams lately too. It’s almost like those dreams where you wake up in the morning and you’re late, so you rush around trying to get ready, then your alarm goes off and you really wake up. I’ll be thinking about doing something like having breakfast, and then all of the suddon realize that I’m not actually eating, and I still have to go make breakfast.

Speaking of food. My headaches are getting worse, and I’m having with nose bleeds which could just be the weather. I have a more than decent appitite, but I never seem to have enough physical energy. Coffee seems to help, but a few hours later I’m back to where I started. The doctor suggested that I take some multivitamins. I’ll try that out and let you know how that goes. Mentally I can still focus at a respectable level, so that’s a good thing. I have aquired an annoying little habit of getting songs stuck in my head. I’ve resorted to not listening to any music at work, but it’s always popping up here and there, and once it’s stuck I have the hardest time forgetting it.
