Up late. Used to have this trouble sleeping about every other night, but this is the first time in a long time I've been up past eleven. It's raining. I'm typing this on the stupid slow computer instead of my laptop so I don't wake anybody up fumbling around in the dark. I dislike this desktop very much. I've done all the clean-up utilities I can think to do, and still it took me ten minutes to get a browser going. I don't know what to do. :-/ I think it's the stupid Kodak Easyshare software, which starts up and updates as soon as you boot the computer, yet there's no option in the preferences to keep it from opening on startup. It sucks all the resources from all other programs until it's finished with its lumbering update. Guess I'll just remove it, since we don't use the camera very much anymore.
Here's a tip for you: Super Metroid is not conducive to sleepy times. Usually when I can't sleep I'll get online and play some Dynomite or something, but since I'd acquired the thermal visor earlier today, I thought I'd explore a little, no biggie. Except that there are big, bad monsters to kill and much jumping from platform to platform. I'm tense. And I keep thinking monsters are going to jump out of the dark kitchen and start shooting at me. (Oh man, I just got the pee scared out of me. Just as I was typing that, a kid got up to go to the bathroom and knocked something over. Geez!)
Well, I could go on for a long time like this but it won't make me any sleepier. Guess I'll go play some soothing Dynomite after all, and hopefully get in bed before one. Night all, or if you're reading this on Friday, Good morning!
