Jetlag manifest

It's strange - usually I have no problem dealing with the lag in this direction. So, you go to sleep a little earlier, and you wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning to pad aimlessly about the house. So what? But this time, I was so tired that I nixed the bedroom-viewing of the pre-penultimate Carnivale, and was asleep within moments of filling in the last square of my middle-difficulty Sudoku (I didn't have the brain or time for a harder one...). Animals start piling on, and before you know it, it's 7:30 in the morning and we can barely peel ourselves from bed. So, travel has resulted in us needing 10-plus hours of sleep. I can't imagine how difficult adjusting to daylight savings time will be.
