I lost my years of sleep data by accidentally deleting the sleep tracking app yesterday.  Oh, well.  The other 5 apps I accidentally got rid of all pretty much came back, tho I think my previous voice memos are gone.  But I can live without those easily enough.  I set the phone not to allow app deleting without me going into settings again, so my pocket won't do that any more, at least.  It will probably continue to speak to me occasionally, though, saying no speakable content can be found on the screen.  And I will or won't meet those words with a however snappy retort, as the spirit moves me.

So I'm going to change the list of checkmark conditions I have the sleep app track for relatively sound/good/long/deep sleep (by its mysterious algorithm), so long as it's freshie time anyhow.  "New bed" had no effect.  Most of them haven't meant much statistically.  I might split "painkiller" into whether I took it in the middle of the night or actually before trying to sleep.  And perhaps I'll eliminate "alienated" (lately I check it every night anyway) and other such conditions it may be less than helpful to remind myself of every night, or nearly every night.  Somehow lowering the bar for what counts as "ate well", or making some aspect of it more specific, might be good too, in the self-(love which is = self-)care way.  Or just skip making any note of how I ate.  I suppose that's really the ticket.

When I was younger, fascinated by sleep, I had vaguely formed ambitions to study sleep, as a sleep scientist, tho I didn't know for sure there really was such a thing.  Funny how it's turned out sleep has been so big a deal for me, in terms of my own quality of sleep, or sleep hygiene.  (Do you also find it odd when "hygiene" is used in a sense like that, where whatever it means it sure doesn't mean, like, washing with soap and water or brushing with toothpaste & flossing, or anything clean-y along those lines?)

There's something beyond words (and pictures) about having the moon block out the sun of a hot sunny day in the middle of the afternoon on the side of the hill up above the big river, or (no doubt) in lots of other circumstances of the moon blocking out the sun.  It was weird and I liked it.  It was a bit animal.  It really was.

So here are some pictures from my jaunt.

It's pretty cool to have one come to our university town.  We have a pretty good local Resistance operation.  Seems like we'll have quite an influx of agents from elsewhere, however.  I'm pretty psyched, even though I have little concept of how it's going to go down.  But I know the zones of town it's in, and I'll pick up swag and talk to some people in person tonight.  Ordinarily I'm a free agent sort of agent.

I think I need to farm me some resonators tonight.  I'm pretty good for bursters.

But this afternoon a plumber's coming to my place, so I've gotta book home now to get everything out from under the kitchen sink and clear a path, as 'twere.

Seems like a busy spurt for me.  Things should settle down again next week.  I hope.  But there are already signs of move-in.  I'm not ready for them.  I wish they wouldn't come back to town until October or so.  But, then again, some road construction is never finished until the football watchers need to swarm, so there's that.

I wish I hadn't played.  I am philosophically opposed to the lottery, in multiple ways (that I could really go on about).  I don't know what got into me.

Still recovering from big eclipse trip.  There's so much I could write about it.  For now lemme just say I'm glad I went through with it.  And it really takes it out of me, driving and driving, days in a row.  It didn't used to.  Now it does.  I sort of remember that any more, but I also sort of forget.

Also on the list of Things to L(ive For or just L)ook Forward To:  the next total eclipse nearby.  Nearer by.

I'll put up a postcard later today, I hope.  Hey, y'all.  Y'few.  :)
