On sleep, and lack of it

I got 5 hours of sleep last night.
In college, this wouldn't be noteworthy at all - 5 hours was fairly
reasonable for those days, and that was OK. Of course, that meant
it took an effort to keep me awake, especially during classes, whereas
nowadays I can stay awake even in boring meetings.
I don't mind being low on sleep if I've done something to enjoy myself
instead - programming, video games, etc. But last night pretty
I've had bad allergies off and on for the last few weeks, roughly
correlating to the times when I went back home to Houston. I
should probably go to the doctor to see what the deal is - I've had
allergies before, but not this bad.
Anyway, so I lie down last night, and my nose is stuffed up (big
surprise there). I had just taken a nose spray to clear it up,
but that made stuff start to drain in my throat, which means I was
mostly coughing or trying to not cough, neither of which is conducive
to sleeping. So after a bit of this, I got up, drunk some water,
and played on my computer some (sitting up always tends to help).
After a while, I went back to bed. Unfortunately, I had drunk so
much water that I had to pee. By this point I was actually pretty
tired (another difference from college - never had trouble getting to
sleep in college, because once I lay down, I was exhausted!), but I
couldn't quite get to sleep, and I really didn't feel like getting up
again. Eventually, though, I gave up and got
up to pee, and drunk some more water (but not so much this time!) to
help my throat. Then I got back in bed, propped up my pillows
against the wall (to make my head more vertical), and eventually got to
sleep, somewhere around 2:30.
So I'm tired today, for no good reason. Ick.
