“I want to go to sleep in my time machine and wake up eight hours in the future.” – Jarod Kintz
Today I am tired. I am the furthest thing from a night owl. Jamie celebrates if I make it to 10PM – I know, I am a load of fun! I am not one to sleep in either, once my eyes open I cannot go back to sleep – I have no idea how people can do it.
Last night, I started a book – a really great book (so far). I stayed up and read 51% of it. That is part of the reason I am tired. I probably should have stopped at 30% and got some sleep.
The other half of why I am so tired is because of Twitter. Twitter never keeps me up, but last night was different. Yesterday, across Ontario we had they mayoral election. The polls closed at 8. By roughly 8:30, Toronto had all its counselors, and the mayor elected. My little town? Well, we had technical difficulties. Our server was down which caused issues tallying the votes. I would have easily gone to sleep and found out this morning who won (because just like a sporting event, whether you watch or not it doesn’t change the score).
The tweets that were coming in were hilarious and I couldn’t seem to put my phone down.
It took over 83 minutes for the start of the results to come in. 83 minutes.
I got a great amount of reading in – which I am happy about.
But today will be a struggle. Today I am tired.
I just hope 4 years from now we would have updated our server and at least tested it first.
