It must have been lunch - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal
It must have been lunch
I seem to be unable to write anything much meaningful at the moment. Theories about this later; but for now, an example of Just How Dozy j4 Can Be:

This morning I got up earlier than usual and packed my bag for work. Despite not really being awake yet, I remembered to pack the lunch I'd made yesterday (but not eaten owing to being ill), as well as a bag of stuff to give away on ucam.adverts.giveaway! How organised.

Then I remembered that I'd also intended to take some books to a charity shop. I unpacked the bag again to get these books in at the bottom, and forgot to put the lunch and other stuff back in ... leaving salad and fruit in tupperwares out of the fridge, and in fact on the living room floor. D'oh.

Remembered this in time to phone sion_a at a time when I thought he'd be awake but not already out of the house. No reply, so I figured he must still be asleep. Phoned again 10 mins later, only to find he'd already left.

Lovely sion_a actually went home and got my lunch and stuff and brought it in for me.

Then I remembered that I was meeting acronym for lunch, so I'd actually managed to forget lunch-and-stuff for something I didn't need to bring in anyway because I wouldn't be able to take books to charity shop at lunchtime. Oh well, I can take them tomorrow.

Then acronym pointed out that, of course, as I was meeting him, I didn't need the lunch either...

So far today I have remembered everything I didn't need to remember and forgotten everything I didn't need to forget. I have, however, rehomed the following junk: a plastic folder of pasta recipes, a small photo album, a green plastic policeman, a tiny address book, an empty Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle sweets container, a Keble College Ball 1997 promotional 'bug', a plastic spider, two money-sorting bags, some plastic cutlery, 2 books, and 11 beer mats.

But hey, at least the lunch confusion means I already have lunch in work for tomorrow! Unfortunately, though, I already made Thursday's lunch last night, because I knew I had yesterday's lunch for today.

I give up.

Glad you made a quick recovery anyway.

Ta. I think (at the risk of TMI) I threw up enough fast enough that I got whatever-it-was out of my system... felt grotty for most of the rest of yesterday, but mostly okay by this morning.

(Okay I still feel a bit icky but I often feel a bit icky, can't tell how much is leftover-ickiness-from-yesterday and how much is just normal not-very-well.)

OOh. There was a bug going around our school about three weeks ago that worked exactly as you described. One minute you're feeling OK, the next nauseous. Then you throw up, and you're OK again within 24 hours.

I didn't get it :( But virtually everyone else at work did.

Are you sure you didn't read law? I think you might have a hidden talent- nay, genius m'lud - for padding legal bills.

All you have to do now is itemise all theose pointless actions repetitions, phone calls and learned-sounding 'duh' noises, and present your bill.

It's true. But the reason I got up early was so that I could get into work and do the stuff I was supposed to do yesterday afternoon (but didn't because of being ill), which has a deadline of lunchtime today. And lo, I have met the deadline. So I did something right.

It's somewhat better than getting that stuck as "It must have been love, but I'm sober now."
