Daily Grind: Twitchy

Name: Vin (aka shakey mctwitchy)
How Vin feels today: Twitchy @ 1:38:25 PM
What Vin really wants today: More sleep. Also, more coffee but without the twitchy side effects. Attempt to lessen coffee intake as day progresses.

Music Stuck in Head: Night Moves / Bog Seager
Disturbing yet fitting all at the same time.

Stuff to do today:

  • Launch a whole bunch of updates for work related tasks/projects/favors/requests
  • Fix several stupid mistakes made due to lack of sleep
  • Pat self on back for being smart enough to make backups first
  • Yawn
  • Prep house for ensuing pipework with chances of dirt/dust clouds that will begin shortly
  • ...all of which should be just great for the sinuses
  • Buy masks for family
