Isn't it naptime?

No, actually, I am not okay.

I thought I was recovering decently from the Blogathon, especially as I slept well last night. But this afternoon I have a horrible headache, and I'm exhausted. Ack. I am very very tempted to e-mail out sick from class. But it's the last meeting of this class. (Nothing to hand in or anything, though.) And the professor's really great and a good contact to have in my field, so I don't want to end on a bad note. And last week he said "Don't any of you who presented tonight think that means you don't have to come on Monday."

But falling asleep driving is no good either. I don't know what to do.

UPDATE: Headache was getting worse and worse, even with ibuprofen, so I e-mailed the professor and told him. Driving an hour, into the city, exhausted and with a piercing headache just doesn't seem safe. Neither does driving home like that at 10pm.

Cab? Hope it goes ok if you decide to go.

That's a tough one. I've pulled several all-nighters for work and it always hits you real hard a day or two later.

Uh oh. Any chance you can go home a bit early from work, sleep a little bit before class and then blearily show up? Or just sleep at your desk until someone notices? And wakes you up>

Or you might email your prof & let him know you did a 24 hr charity thing over the weekend. It's not like you're ditching his class because you spent the weekend in a blackout at a party.

OTOH, it's your birthday. Why are you at class & work exactly?

Poor you - hope you are feeling better later on.

What a crappy way to end a birthday :( One year my mom set the kitchen on fire making a birthday cake, but nobody got hurt. Just cold
