i just totally fell asleep at my desk

More like drifted off, actually, but I lost consciousness for at least a few seconds. I feel so out of whack right now. Overly-sleepy... drowsy. My stomach feels a little weird. Totally not hungry, which is, you know, weird.

I think it has to do with last night. Because I was SO LAZY over the weekend, and not as physically active as I should have been, my back sort of tweaked out a bit. Yesterday at work it became worse and worse. Not because I was sitting in my uncomfortable office chair for too long (because I was up and running around all the freakin' time), but I think because I was all stressed out.

So I got home late and basically slummed until it was time to go to bed. But my back was really bothering me, so I decided to take two Vicodin. Vicodin hadn't really helped me during my severe episode, but I thought if I took two perhaps it would work better than some Motrin.

So I took the two Vicodin on almost an empty stomach and spent the next hour having fun trying to analyze the effects of the drugs. I was getting sleepy, sure. I was also reeeeallyyyyy reeeeelaaaaaaaaxed. And warm. Really warm. Super-cozy. And a bit itchy as well. I felt like a freakin' crack smoker. Then I stumbled onto an episode of "Family Guy" on TBS and fell happily to sleep, pain-free.

This morning I woke up with no real damage done. My back was ever-so-slightly sore, but nothing compared to how I was feeling without meds the day before. But, as the day progresses, I'm noticing how crazy-lethargic I am. It probably has a lot to do with the amount of work I have in today (practically nothing, unfortunately), but that's never usually enough for me to actually fall asleep at my desk.

I've been pondering going home early, but, like, I need all the hours I can get. All I need to do is manage to stay awake for the next four hours and then I can crash (at home, preferably, not in my MINI on the drive home, please!).
