"You couldn't leave a damn note?"
She wouldn't talk to me after that.
For a long time after that I kept the shelf units over my desk locked.

Quickest way to fall asleep. At the moment I have 3/4 tech books beside my bed and one novel. If I have trouble sleeping (which happens a lot) I open one of the tech books and read until I get so damn bored/tired that I can fall asleep.
