As I’m writing this I’ve been awake for 36 hours, minus the 20 minutes of sleep I managed at around 9 this morning. The reason for the lack of sleep is of course work; scheduled maintenance at the data center combined with a full work day before and after. Me and two colleagues had a very efficient night in the data center, moving massive amounts of hardware around.

What surprise me the most is how awake I am. At least I feel awake, but I noticed that I had a hard time focusing on work this afternoon. I don’t think not sleeping is recommended over a long period of time, so tonight I’m sleeping again.

As you’re probably aware, Christmas is coming up and for most of us that means Christmas presents. Personally, I don’t feel it’s important to get anything material for Christmas, a little peace of mind is more than enough. But of course, getting stuff doesn’t make me angry.

That gifts are not important to me (unfortunately) means that I don’t give away a lot of gifts either. A little something for Gine, a little something for her closest family and a little something for my closest family. The great thing about this is that getting the Christmas presents is done in half an afternoon. Still I’m all out of ideas. You got any?
