Reset Twenty-One, Day Twenty-Seven

Once again I got up way too late on Thursday, and now I'm awake way too late on Friday morning. Sometime in the next few days I expect I'll wake up way too early and then end up taking an evening nap and things will get weirder still. I'm pretty sure I ate something, but I can't remember what. I know I had a bottle of beer with it because I see the empty bottle on the counter. I remember watching a bunch of videos of stand-up comics, and one of them I remember is J. J. Barrows, who is pretty funny. I'll have to look for more of her stuff, as it is effectively distracting, and I like distraction, except when I'm doing something. These days I'm doing nothing, so it's a good time for distraction.

Now I'm going to try to get to sleep before the day gets hot, or before the wind shifts and smoke from the many large fires heads this way, as the wind is supposed to start doing strange things over the next few days. I don't expect getting to sleep will be easy, though, as it hasn't been for the last few days. Hotter days and nights are likely to make it worse before it gets better. It might get better around, oh, I don't know, maybe December.

Oh, they are evacuating big chunks of Plumas County now. The Dixie fire has topped 110,000 acres and another fire has gotten started nearby. They might merge. The evacuees are unlikely to head to Chico as the highway between here and there is closed. You can't get here from there.
