Too much sleep

Gee, I wanted to listen to The Black Hat Show on Free Radio Berkeley last night. Josh had told me he'd be playing the interview from last Friday, but his show starts at midnight, and I fell asleep at 8:00.

Not counting waking up to pee a few times, I slept almost twelve hours straight through. Then I got up, typed a while, and fell asleep again.

That's two nights of sleep for me in one night, and I don't even know why. I've had a toothache off and on for a week — maybe it's getting infected and I'll be dead in a few days. Whatever.

So after all that sleeping, I got to the Avenue about an hour late, and that's weird, too. I'm late for dinner sometimes, but never late for movies or work.

Felt groggy selling fish most of the day, but still had half my wits about me. Worked next to the annoying guy who'd hollered at me for being an inch into his space, who'd then another day, bizarrely, pretended we were old friends

So today it was my turn to pretend. I greeted him with my biggest smile, laughed at everything he said all day, and by the time we started packing up our tables, had him convinced that we're best buddies for life. Now that he's not expecting trouble, next time I see him my first words will be, "Screw off, honky motherfucker."

Tired of this damned toothache, I am very. Most days I can barely feel it, but some days it's all I can feel. Lower right side, toward the back, and now I'm also getting early warnings from upper left, both sides.

And I'm so damned tired, it's all I can do to type these stupid sentences. Then I'm going to eat a few soft sandwiches, peanut butter, I think, and go to bed. It's only 7:30. So much sleeping last night, and still I'm exhausted.

I wonder what bug I'm fighting. Hope it's something exotic. That would at least be interesting.
