I arrived at work 6:55 am 24May06 and I left work at 12:50 am 25May06. As I recall, that ties with the extraordinary weekend at Abbott, but that weekend started later in the day, so I left there about the time the sun was coming up, which seemed worse.

'Twasn't 'my' project, but it had an oven failure, too. Different oven, different day by 24 hours. I suspect we have been invaded by gremlins. (I didn't mention the oven failure on 'my' project between Monday evening and Tuesday morning? Well, I have been at work, but not at the computer, rather a lot this week....)

And while we will be splitting 'my' project up over today and tomorrow (which I very nearly begged our client for permission to do), it's still going to take bloody near forever to a) heat 36 liters of water to 50-55 °C and b) then cool it back down near room temp to adjust the pH and then Q.S. it (that's our shorthand for 'add water until the total weight is where we want it').

And tomorrow... we filter and fill it. True to form, I woke about 6 this morning and my brain started whirling and churning about timing issues. Go back to sleep? HA! But since my partner-in-crime said he would be back in about 9 this morning, I have some time to kill. So, here I am.

Did I mention that, when I left work in the wee hours, I had 39.35 hours in already? That is a record for me. The air at 1 am was extraordinarily pleasant, as I recall and the drive was the shortest I can remember, what will so little traffic and all. (No, I didn't exceed my usual speed limit - too few other cars to 'hide' me from any HPs.)

Next time that happens, call me and see if I'm up, so you don't have to drive all the way back.

Dude! It was one o'clock in the morning. I'm not calling ANYONE that late/early unless it's a dire emergency.

Most of the time I don't go to sleep until after midnight. :P
