4 in the A.M

Remember how I said I had I had to go to Arifjan for my paperwork on the 3rd? Well, the above picture summarizes my luck for the day.
The previous night, I was at a wedding half heartedly sipping on a superbly diluted Vodka that tasted like utter Sprite. I hadn't slept a wink but the redbulls kept me as awake as they kept me edgy. Always a funny combination. Anyways, the puncture was not even the worst part ironically enough. A friend still managed to get me to Arifjan on time, where I waited in the biting cold for 4 odd hours to be told that my paperwork was not complete. Argh indeed! Now I'm at my desk sleepy as ever because I slept all day yesterday and wound up stayibng up almost all of last night. I need to return to my time zone seriously. Well, I need to go find a solution for my series of yawns. Any rememdies, folks?

That sounds absolutely terrible! I'm so sorry to hear! I'd say drink coffee during the day, but I suppose that'd just make you more sick :(

It was amusing in retrospect actually. Trust me, I've drugged myself silly with all the coffee, it's all surreal now :-D Quite funny!

Puncture? It looks like you hit a 'roadside device.'

Oh, and I love your banner picture.

fasting has been proven to keep the mind awake for short periods, as your subconsciousness kicks in to be on the lookout for food.

It sucks hardcore...but I use to do it when I worked 36 hour shifts...

Damn that's cold!!! Brrr!

Yeah, doesn't look like a puncture...more like a shredding.

Espresso and loud music always worked well for me -- throw in a cold shower and you ought to be awake. Pissed off, but awake. :)

Aye,Cap'n! I facebooked the pic so my boss saw it and then broached the topic of another nicer car though! Harhar!
Yea, wish that piece of creativity was mine. I am only responsible for messing with contrast on photoshop :D

Argh Buddy, 36 hours!?!! I can imagine fasting working, yea! T'was funny I was wide awake the moment I left work though :D

Rayboy, yea I kinda floated towards the emergency lane at 140. The Gods of Glide were with me Ha!

Hey Wayne!!! I think I've got a pimped up immune system! All I had was one sneeze today :D

Hello Lil Gosling, I did try Chemical brothers for a while until my ears were numb to them :D
