i do not pretend I have an attention span today

Okay, in my defense, I was literally mostly asleep during work today and so while I read "OBAMA WINS NOBEL" it didn't really penetrate at all until I dragged myself home, despite teh fact I read all of CNN (I don't remember it. I dont actually remmber most of the day. Yes, I am literal I was mostly asleep). Seriously, somehow--I do not know how--I had a vague "Huh" and then wandered off.

So it was at five o'clock when I got home that I was vaguely staring at the TV and said "Holy shit, Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize?" Which ended with my family looking at me with patience.

I have two thoughts on this after reading--and you know, having read the guidelines for the Nobel, since Stargate Atlantis fandom really encourages you to research awards Rodney really believes he should get (if you were ever in SGA, you know this. That's why all of us came out of there with math related PTSD and have at least two websites talking about unsolvable math problems. And some of us may have modeled a certain graphing one with toothpicks and multiple colors of pens).

In other words--I'm happy about this. I mean, I'm ecstatic about this. And also, I'm giggling inappropriately at what must have happened when the White House found out. If it wasn't at least ten minutes of "You're fucking with me" interspersed with "Seriously, who put you up to this?" I will be shocked. Most people just don't wake up, get their coffee, and find out they've won a Nobel.
