Another weekend where it's stupid o'clock in the morning here and I'm trying to hold conversations with people in America and Thailand. Things would be a hell of a lot simpler if we all lived on the same O'Neill cylinder.
My project manager bought assorted chili peppers at a market at lunch today. As the afternoon wore on he gave in to temptation and sampled a few. The first was a Padron; reasonably hot according to him. The second was a Christmas Bell; quite sweet apparently.
There seems to be quite a difference between insomnia - which I sometimes suffer through - and deliberately staying up through the night. Insomnia makes me tired but that's all. Right now I've had just over three hours sleep since Tuesday night on purpose thanks to work commitments and I'm feeling spaced out as all hell.
From midnight through to maybe 04:00 or possibly even later I'm going to have to babysit a code deployment for a client. We have deployment personnel but the client has insisted on having a developer present in case of any problems. I've done most of the work so work insists that that means me. I was given 24 hours notice of this.
#SaturdayFF Today I watched a 2011 recording of Cendrillon by Massenet filmed at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, this being the first opera not sung in English I've ever watched all the way through. Subtitles helped. A lot.
