My Life, as seen from today

So, my boss had an emergency appendectamy and I am now in charge of her department. Ok, so not entirely, but we don't know when she will be back. What I want to know is if this means I get a raise...?
I forgot to read my philosophy before class today, so I went to the bookstore and stood there for a while to read the chapter, since I am too cheap to actually buy my own copy. Unfortunately, I had forgotten everything by the time I got to class. However, we had a lively discussion that did not depend on having read anything, and it was even interesting enough to make me forget how much my head hurt.
We took a Spanish test this morning, and I think I did okay, even though I was watching something in French last night with French subtitles and thought that would create problems.
It snowed about three inches last night, and whoever was plowing the sidewalks couldn't walk in a straight line and went over the grass some, and it was slippery, but I still made it to class before the teacher.
The food at lunch today tasted better than usual, after a weekend of inediblity, but it still made my stomach hurt. Maybe I was eating too fast, or the subject of discussion was inhibiting my digestive enjoyment...
We were supposed to go bowling lasst night, but Sarah was writing a paper and needed me to talk her through it over the phone, and I was too tired to go anyway. Instead, we hung out in 220 and listened to Jess obsess over her newest object of fascination, who knocked on the door while we were talking about him.

Can I please just have a few days off so I can sleep? Can I please find some way to sleep?

Wow, your day sounds so much more exciting than mine. Perhaps its all in the telling? I'm sorry to hear that you still can't sleep...but I suspect its more like you still can't sleep in your own bed at night. I recommend that you get someone to drive you somewhere, or take a bus, that used to put you to sleep immediately. When I was in college (ooh I hate that line), I used to nap in the student union, or on a couch in the dorm lounge, (or of course in class), and then it didn't matter so much about the lost sleep at night. (I think I still get better sleep on the couch than in bed...but that could be attributed to the fact that I FALL asleep on the couch by "accident", but I GO to bed because I'm "supposed to".)

PS: I suppose this means that you have to answer your boss's phone. I know how you "just love" that!

Actually, no one has told me to answer the phone, but I haven't heard it ring anyway. The worst part is that there is no one who knows what there is for me to do, so I don't get to work today, which might sound like a good thing to anyone else.
I guess you're probably right in regards to the sleep, because I find it a lot easier to fall asleep in other places, although even driving around with Jess last night did not make me sleepy (but I am going to attribute that to her driving style).
