Couldn't Do It

I tried to stay awake until midnight local time... but somewhere along the line, I dropped off, computer still on...

I woke up shortly after 12 and just went to bed. The new year seems to have arrived okay without my vigilant attention... at least, the sun is up at the normal, expected hour today.

And my 4" of ungraded papers are down to a real do-able inch. I need to go in and put them on the computer yet, which should leave about half a day to finish up my nano novel. (You know, the one I was going to finish in December... after I got the stuff already written edited into coherence? Of course, it is about a half month's worth of writing from being done, so I should have NO TROUBLE doing it this afternoon, right?)
