Stress Induced Insomnia

by nick on January 20th, 2005

I can’t sleep. Again. The install this week is going really bad. The first day was spent troubleshooting the access point. The second day was spent configuring the wireless devices. The maintenance guy actually physically installed 1o machines for me today. He will get the other 11 tomorrow. I’ve yet to physically touch a control, or set up any machines in Predator. The AP is still not mounted. If I finish this in the next 27 hours (which is the max I can work in the next two days), I’ll be shocked. That’s just over 1 hour per machine. Fortunetly there are a lot of Fanucs and a few Fadals. That should be pretty straight forward. The bad thing is that 4 machines need to drip feed, and the install is wireless.

Explain to me again why I like my job? Installs like this make me want to find something easy, like surgery or running a super power.

I am now watching a infomercial for Tony Horton’s Beachbody Power 90. I need to get that. I’m a fat cow. I have no idea what it is, but it has some really hot people on it. Who knew a 90 year old guy could be hot? I’m obviously tired. The only bad thing is they show before and after photos. I really don’t need to see fat people topless and in bikinis. I’m going to have nightmares now. If I can fall asleep. I need another cup of coffee. Maybe that’s why I can’t sleep. Or it could be because I’m watching TV and typing on the computer.

Speaking of computers, I miss my computer. I just got it all set up, as you all know, and now I cannot use it. And I’m going to Mexico next week for another install. So that means both more time away from Laura and Courtney, but most importantly, more time away from my computer. My computer will be very upset with me when I get back. At least I found a Subway here. I missed my turkey sandwich with cheddar| provolone and lettuce, tomato, onion, olives, and bell peppers with mayo and mustard on a Italian herbs and cheese | parmesean oregano | cheesy cheddar name that I forget.

So the moral of the story, kids, is to always remember what breads Subway makes, or you’ll be unable to sleep and be forced to watch infomercials or Blind Date. I need a life. Please send me one.

Hey, Andrew, how is life in Canada?

    Hey Nick, life in Canada is a continuing adventure and exploration. (A vague but intriguing response.) Basically life fo r me involves healing and developing myself, and exploring through books and my mind since right now exploring the world physically isn’t feasable — I don’t know when or if it will be. My life is currently like a pseudoblind spiritual adventure or quest, following my heart, which is confusing at times and amazing at others. But the primary goal right now is to heal, and I have progressed massively in that — though I am searching for what I will do next.

    Interessant, n’est-ce pas?
