I pulled my first all-night in a long, long time. (As in, the last time I was asleep was 11am on Sunday). I was feeling a tad overwhelmed with the work that awaited me on Monday, which kept me up until 4am. Eventually, I said "Screw it" and decided to at least work. So I worked until 1-ish, then split for home to pick up some packages that had been waiting for me since last week in the rental office at my loft (as well as a package at the post office). And you know what? It was a fairly productive day (albeit with a lot of low-hanging fruit, nothing too major).

I got my copy of the "Stuff White People Like" book, which I hope will help me make some friends. :^)

I also got some coins I ordered a while back - the American Silver Eagle is GORGEOUS! I was incredibly disappointed with the American Gold Eagle, though ... the thing is so tiny you can barely see the design! I also picked up a Hawaiian Silver Dollar from WWII (these were normal dollar bills that were marked as "HAWAII" so that if Hawaii fell to the Japanese, the US govt could quickly devalue the dollars).

I also managed to get my kitchen cabinet door (which fell off in April of 2007) fixed. So now I don't have a cabinet door lying around.

And then I went to the dentist for the first time in at least two years :) My teeth were in pretty good shape, so no worries there! I guess I'm just a small-town kid, because I was pretty impressed with the fact that each seat had a TV with cable! 65 channels! AWESOME! They also have a pretty cool website as far as dentists go (UrbanDentalSanDiego.com), and the dentist was telling me how the X-ray photo software they use is open-source! So I guess if you need a dentist downtown in San Diego, check 'em out.

So all-in-all, a pretty productive day. Now if I had only gotten my hair cut, I really would have accomplished all my "personal" goals for the second-half of 2008.

So now, can I make it 36 consecutive hours awake? We shall see....
