Today is going to be a long day, work-wise. I'll have to get up about 3:00 am Eastern tomorrow to make my flight home. (That would be, ahem, midnight where I live.) I won't be back to my house for the evening until well after 9:00 pm tomorrow night, Pacific time. That's at least a 21-hour day right there, following on today's long day.

I'm feeling a bit daunted by this.

My current plan is to take a Lorazepam when I get on the plane here in Columbus tomorrow morning, and sleep as much as possible through both segments of my flight home. I'm not sure that's the best idea I've ever had, but it sure beats staying up for nearly 24 hours, given my body's current sleep needs.

I suspect there won't be much if any writing today or tomorrow. Which is okay. I got the Asimov's galley edits for my novella "The Stars Do Not Lie" done yesterday, and I have a couple of weeks on the Kalimpura copy edits.

But, yeah, tomorrow...

Eep. The sleeping pill seems like a sensible idea: I do similar when faced with days like that.
