I'm not sure what I've done, but I've really turned myself around...I'm not even on Eastern Standard time either! I think I might have over-thought this whole thing and put myself on Phillipines time. WTF!?
So last night I was up until like 0425! So just try to guess what happened today!? I SLEPT ALL DAMN DAY and now it's like 8 pm and I'm wide awake. My solution: I'm going to just take 22 tylenol pms and call it a day at about 11 so that I can make it to work on time.
What could possibly go wrong??
(I'm kidding mother! No need to call the hospitals! I'll only take 9. KIDDING AGAIN!)
However, plus side? I have not eaten all day! Clearly, I'm getting all psyched up for Ramadan that starts here on a day that can never be known until you show up at work and all the locals are crabby, and then by noon WE are all crabby because we realize that all the restaurants are closed because WHY would they be open if nobody is going to be eating until it gets dark? HOWEVER, you realize that you didn't pack a lunch because WHO KNEW that Ramadan was going to be starting TODAY!? Sufficie it to say, the start of Ramadan (for Christians) is ugly.
Note to self: start hoarding food in your office. Hide it so that the others in the Embassy cannot find it. Locate secure area in which to eat your hoarded food so that you are not seen by the others who may cause an uncomfortable situation when you have to explain to them that you do not now, and never will share. It's just better to remain a closet eater (as is my norm, so it's all good).
Although, maybe I shouldn't turn my jet lag around! Maybe I should just remain on this new schedule for the whole of Ramadan. THEN, when I wake up it will be dark and I will have plenty of food options.
Now all I have to do is convince Paul to allow us to impletment and alternate work schedule to accomodate my new timezone theory.
The Very Best Day
