Played Half-Life and Half-Life 2: Mineva past my bed time and finally crashed at about 1300 (1PM) on Tuesday. Got out of bed and made eggs at 5:30 (AM) .. just nowish.
Slept, woke, dozed, dreamed .. realized at some point that I'd way overslept (and this was after waking at 22:30 or so) and that I could get the car cleaned today. So that is the major plan.
Might hit a bookseller and buy some Brin. I've been reading some of his teasers and short stories on his site (davidbrin.com) after coming across one of his columns in an unlikely place. I have also looked at getting them from Amazon dealers used. Most of his old paperbacks seem to be free (0.01 - 1.00) plus shipping (3.99).
