Sitting in my favourite coffee shop, drinking my favourite drink, ready to update this blag, I realised that I left the crucial data at home that I wanted to write about today. So… it will just have to wait. Today is my ‘day off’, which means I go in to work, blast my music (because nobody is there) and get a lot of work done – it’s great.
Although… I was so excited about life last night that I couldn’t really sleep. You see, the problem was that I got back from work at 23:00 (11pm for you yankees) – arriving at my apartment in Old Town Pasadena on bike (yep, still biking to work), I was hot, sweaty, and definitely not ready for bed. To make matters worse, at 01:00 when I tried to sleep, I started getting hungry! So, a midnight snack and ice cream cured that and finally saw me off to bed around 02:00. I feel like the clerk in, well, Clerks: I’m not even supposed to be here! I knew if I slept in today, my whole sleep schedule would be deranged, so here I am, going to work, and not even supposed to be here.
Work is fun though, and since a post with only text is quite boring, here is a picture of my office. Oh yes, we had a 8+ hour power outage at JPL on Monday from 14:00 onwards, I took the time to rearrange my office and build this awesome command center:
It’s hard going home to my puny 27″ display after spending a few hours at the command center!
