paradox of sorts...
strange to find myself here, in this paradox of being both completely exhausted and alert at the same time.

left at 3:20 pm monday, and arrived at minneapolis at 7:15 as planned, where i was supposed to transfer at 8:25. however, for some reason, at about 9:00 pm, we were finnaly told that the bus was running late, as they couldn't find a driver. and that was all they told us. finally, at about 10:45, we were politely informed that if they couldn't find a driver by 11:00, then that schedule would be cancelled. and, sure enough, that's what happened. the next available bus leaving my way wasn't until 7:00 am the next day, and luckily, sinci i had originated at a point outside of the min/st. paul area, they put me up in a hotel room gratis. which was kind of them, as i really didn't want to sleep in the bus terminal, which would close at 1:00 am.

so about 12:45 am, get to sllep, waking up at 5:30 to get ready, so as to be there early. heaven forbid i missed my bus and would have to wait again. so, going on approximately 4 1/2 hours of sleep, boarded the bus and left at 7:00 am, and stayed on the same bus for nearly 24 hours, arriving here at just before 7:00 am this morning. of course, there was the occasional 10 minute stop for smoke breaks and the like, but for the most part, sat in the same uncomfortable seat for a full day. tried to get some sleep, which resulted in brief 10-20 minute naps at the most, so got little sleep. which explains the exhausted part.

and, being back in my home state, brings me some level of consciousness that has kept me surprisingly alert.

and being quite hungry, off to get some lunch of some sort. will update more later, as doing this from a borrowed laptop.

Current Mood: exhausted tired and alert
Current Music: creaking joints and sore muscles complaining and stretching
