Spy vs. Spy

In the wee hours of the morning when the rest of the world is fast asleep, the differential wheels in my head spin, cogs meshing together to create a surplus of torque to carry me through the night. The moment my head did finally hit the pillow, I was immediately caught up in an adventure with a distressed damsel who exuded overt sexuality with my standard bent of saving the known world.

Spy vs. Spy: Sadly, its duration was only two hours - the exact amount of sleep I got last night.

Keeping myself animated with an unusually high intake of MONSTER directly proportional to each hour of sleep I missed, I began my drive to work. A car deftly maneuvered between me and the car in front of me, allowing only about a foot of clearance between us.

Spy vs. Spy: Since what I could only assume was a comfort level of the other driver with that proximity, I maintained it the duration of my commute.

Anxiously charging my iPod once I made it to work, I pulled up Gnome's Rhythembox on my laptop. The writers of the application fundamentally felt that an equalizer should be global on the system, therefore excluding one from the app itself. So I downloaded a highly-lauded third-party equalizer in which Rhythembox utilized as a plugin.

Spy vs. Spy: It didn't work.

Because of my lack of sleep, I planned a very short day for myself at work.

Spy vs. Spy: I ended up working 12-hours.
