Stuff makes me tired

I am taking a class on Advanced Perl this week.

It's good. I'm learning new stuff, and getting some stuff I sorta knew down a lot better. There's a bunch of stuff that I already know, or that I get after the first half of the explanation, which is good, because I can use that time to catch up on all the email and suchlike that's not slowing down while I'm out of the office.

I am freakin' exhausted.

Partly I have this horrible cold that is receding, but still hosing my voice. And all the computers in the classroom make mind-deadening noise. And of course today I had to go in early to take the Jetta in to the dealer, because the fuel door wouldn't open, and it was down to 1/4 tank of gas. Which is, y'know, a minor thing, but you really can't not fix it. (Happily, they were able to fit it in, because they are awesome.)

And, well, last night was Games Night at Chris's, so we played Tales of the Arabian Nights until midnight. It's a kind of multi-player boardgame Choose Your Own Adventure. It was fun, though we really didn't come at all close to finishing.

So it's not really unreasonable that I'm tired.

But yeah. I am.
