the sleep-email connection

A few days ago, my email was bouncing and there was nothing I could do but wait for the problem to fix itself. It made me feel so helpless and frustrated that I buried my head under a blanket and fell asleep. Although I woke up periodically, I slept for almost 24 hours straight until the email problem was fixed.

Upon reflection, it is probably the most I've slept since the last time my email was bouncing.

You have a point... (5.00 / 1) (#1)

I've been doing that whole sleeping in because there's nothing worth waking up for in your life thing again, but when I finally crawled out of bed this afternoon, I thought, "maybe there'll be an email in my inbox that will brighten my day, like perhaps a letter from a long lost friend?" I logged on. Five new messages! That's quite a lot for my private account.

Spam. Spam. Spam. Spam. Spam.

Fuck.
