'Did you get everything you wanted out of this internship?' *SNORT!*

Lack of sleep does strange things to you.

It can make you suddenly decide that you HAVE TO UPGRADE MOVABLE TYPE at 8am. It can make you upgrade Movable Type when you're also supposed to be gluing things to your poster. It can make you late for work because you were sticking things to posters and panicking about missing comments when you should have already been at work. It can make you forget to put on deodorant. It can make you go to the bookstore for an emergency deodorant purchase and end up buying chapstick and a vile weird-ass energy bar as well. It can then make you eat said weird-ass energy bar. It can make you send the following in an email to Mr B------:

Subject: Summary of flavors

Honey.
No, wait, not honey.
Something like honey though.
Some kind of sweetener.
Damn, this is sweet!
Too sweet?
I don't know.
It tastes like other things, too.
Grainy things.
It tastes like burning!
Likeburnt rice.
Or maybe just stale rice.
Why's it got to be so conglomerate? There are bits of mysterious things in my teeth.
It's ugly, too. I shouldn't look at it.
By the time I finish chewing one bite, I forget that it was kind of nasty at the beginning.
I guess that's good.
It's okay once it's been mashed around in my mouth for a while.

These are, of course, all completely hypothetical and didn't happen to me today. *sniffs armpits*

How many more hijinks can I have today? I look forward to answering questions about my internship with excessive sleep-induced honesty!

What, we missed creepily accompanying you for another emergency deoderant purchase?!? Darn... ;)

Question: Did you also happen to buy the deoderant for which your trip to the store was originally intended? Or did you just smear chapstick in your armpits in the hope that, while smelly, they at least wouldn't dry out?

"as well" referred to the deodorant!
