Some interesting hours I've just had. I'm still kind of lost as to where I am in the calendar day structure, thanks to that "all nighter" on--ack, my UPS just went to battery mode... ah, it was only a self test--Wednesday. No, Thursday. It ended on Thursday. Like I said, lost. Anyway...
I got to sleep last night at around 3am. I slept for 2 hours, before waking up to a faint beeping sound. The sound did not stop. Then, I rolled over, and started to hear a much louder beeping sound. In fact, it was the same sound, only heard by my *working* ear. Seconds later, I put the pieces together: fire alarm. Got on my coat, evacuated the building... I must have been one of the last people out. Which was good, because it was a false alarm.
Went back in, and slept til 12.
Now, I've been using Debrox to try to clear out my ear since yesterday morning, I think. Today at 5PM, I was settling down to watch Knight Rider and put more drops in my ear. Which then started *hurting*. Not good. I went to the University Health Center, but they said I'd have to wait until Monday unless it was an emergency. I asked if an ear infection qualified, and they must have thought so, because I got to see the doctor. She blasted my ear out a couple of times, said I probably didn't have an ear infection, put some drops in, and now I have cotton in my ear that I can't take out until tomorrow. Thus, I don't know if they actually fixed my hearing, but I'll take their word for it.
And that's where I am now. Trying to decide if I should fire up Invisible War again, or maybe just do something productive.
