I slept for a bit over twelve hours and it felt good. Woke semi-abruptly to Meet The Press, making approximately the noise spelled out above.
This was the kind of sleep -- long, heavy and deep -- that one of the engineers I worked with back when I first started out referred to as "sleeping viciously," a sleep that refuses to let the sleeper go until he or she is truly rested.
I'm up now-- planning on making home made corned beef hash. With eggs on the side. 'Cos I can.
