    The ISTJs are funny because they work for extremely consistent hours, eat at extremely consistent times, go to their breaks at extremely consistent times, and even use the bathroom at extremely consistent times. They're so curious to watch.
    Yes...it's like if they don't their lives will unravel. To be uncertain about one's digestive comings and goings means certain death.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Lack of sleep is as bad as being drunk.

    I think I went way over the top last night...in a bad way. This will eat at me all day, I just know it.

    Another random thought: I actually screwed up with an orchid, which is pretty rare for me, but it happens sometimes. I cut off a raceme that you would cut off a Cattleya because they don't continue blooming after all the flowers have dropped. However, it turns out that an Epidendrum can continue to use the same raceme indefinitely. The plant is adding new blooms to the racemes faster than the old ones wither and fall off, and all I am doing is watering and feeding the plant, too. Apparently they quit watering them after they went to the store, just like most orchids at such places. It's crazy how well they grow with proper light and a little water...

    Unfortunate. I got less sleep than I should have, myself.

    Were you working on something?

    I did, too. It's not good, because I need to come up with a complex system today, and I'm still uncertain about anything beyond a very high level.

    Were you working on something?
    I worked later at work, then after I drank a smoothie thing, I hunkered down and started chatting on IRC. It was...interesting...but lasted way too long and I feel like I went way over the line, so now I regret things. That's the problem with a lack of sleep, which is like being drunk, as I mentioned above.

    Unfortunate. Engineers? Hope it goes well for you, though.

    I had a final this morning.

    I've done similar on occasion-mostly under stress. Not usually a good thing.

    I'm always tired if I have to get up at six in the morning, though.

    Thankfully, they trust me and therefore I can probably just give them the high level.

    I always hated early morning finals, or anything early morning, for that matter. Sadly, I had to take earlier classes because I had to work in the afternoons as a rule.

    No, it isn't.

    Same here, but that's how the world likes to run.

    So, that had to be interesting to see. I wasn't present at all. I just started going through chatzilla and am afraid to close the window, for fear I won't know how to get back. That's why I've been there non-stop.

    I think people typically go way over the line in IRC, so maybe it wasn't so bad? It seems like a majority of the time the chats involve humorous remarks about the grossest possible topics: poop, bodily openings and fluids, maiming, hating, etc. It's a whole new approach to small talk.

    More orchid info:

    Epidendrum picture.
    It looks a lot like this one, only a different color, and the plant is growing vertically in bark (the one in the picture will ground root), so my flowers are curiously upside-down. As the racemes grow out, like the one in the picture, they might start curving down and looking a bit more natural... This little one is at 6 racemes right now, with two new ones getting ready to bloom for the first time.

    The Dendrobium keeps opening blooms, slowly, and they are remaining for quite a while. I love how it's starting to perk up so much - the leaves looked a bit unhealthy in there where it was sitting, now some of the unhealthy ones are dropping and being replaced by healthy ones with the neatest purple edges and center veins. It would be worth growing for the unique leaf coloration alone, let alone the medium-small lavender and white blooms. I must imagine that the root system is happier now, too, as another cane is growing vigorously. The root system on this plant looked pretty sorry when I pulled it out after coming home, and it still has some anchoring problems in the new container because it's so top-heavy in comparison to the roots.
