...the sort of profound that comes at midnight-thirty when one was out way past ones bedtime and is therefore still too wound up to sleep.

Okay, so. I was singing "On Top of Spaghetti" in my head for no particular reason (earlier I was out-loud singing "thwre was an old lady who swallowed a fly" but I couldn't remember what came after the dog, though I have since looked that up), and there is the more commonly known short version, and then there is the version that I learned with an additional verse.

lyrics, full version )

The bracketed section is not always included. Now, without that verse, the moral makes sense: meatballs are yummy (assuming one is not vegetarian), dirty mushy meatball remains much less so. But *with* the additional verse -- dude, if sacrificing one meatball gave me a magic meatball tree the next year? Hell yeah that's worth it!

(Of course, around here it would be "...and onto the floor, then Yahtzee was helpful, my meatball's no more", so it wouldn't get as far as the magic meatball tree stage. But still.)

So in "I may have needed sleep" news: my morning aide texted me early this morning saying she had an emergency and couldn't come in. I woke up literally only long enough to read the text and send back an acknowledgment, before I went back to sleep.

Usually when I don't have someone coming in to wake me up, I awaken somewhere around 10:30-11:30.

...I woke up after 1:30.

I'd say oops, but I'm pretty damn sure I needed it.

(Especially since last night I was at a meeting that went until 10, and while I was in bed by 11:30, it took a while to relax enough to get to sleep. So that was "only" 12h. But still.)

The ridiculousest bit is I'm still not just tired but sleepy. Like I could go to bed without problems.
