Morning (Absence of) Glory

Okay so I have not spent the morning picking up sticks and weird long bean strings from the back yard as I had hoped to, and do you know why?  I am addicted to sleep.  Or maybe just the compensation of sleep that seems to come in the mornings as a result of tossing and turning at night.  I miss my cheap bed.  This new plushy one with all the fixins just isn’t doing it for me.  I’m not as stiff as I was before, … Continue reading

Before I Forget

I had a weird dream last night.  Miklos, his brother and I were in a fishing town and we stopped for something to eat.  When we were coming out of the place, which was old and small-town ‘fish n chips’-like, some guy followed us out and I think it was Rob Delaney.  He said we should go see the new Pink Panther movie because it has almost all the guys from Kids in the Hall in it.  We said we knew that (?!) and we … Continue reading

Oh hello.

Chrome keeps freezing. Are you cold, little one? I love you… you’re normally so quick and clean and refreshing. *Wraps a blanket around you.* Is that better? Will you start scrolling again soon? Is it that I haven’t updated you in a while? Do you feel out of style? Are you angry at me because I’ve been working doubles and I haven’t been warming you up with my ever-overheating laptop? I am so dedicated to you, Chromey. Don’t let me down. You’ve always made me … Continue reading

I don’t play baby games.

An empty Tim Hortons cup sits on my desk, to the left of my computer and to the Southeast of my phone. This is a cue for me to make a tea. I enjoy a good Earl Grey tea these days. I also enjoy ‘paying back’ my sleep debt. One day Miklos is going to pay back his sleep debt too, but his case will be much more Van Winkle than mine (minus all the tragedy). When he awakes, there will be mugs and mugs … Continue reading

Electric Feel

Why do I not like sleep at night, but I love it so come morning? I’m tired as all shit, but I just won’t go down. Why don’t I think this much during the daytime? It certainly would help a lot of things. This is a good’un (I didn’t pay attention to the video, I’ll be honest). It was track #11 on ‘Economics is a Drag’ Mix ’08 as compiled by Ellie. That girl was fun. Share the post “Electric Feel” FacebookTwitterShare… Continue reading

American Idol auditions are back, yesssss!

Listen, I don’t want to bore you with stories like this… but this is one for the memories. Ignore it if you are anyone other than me reading. Situation: I’m lying in bed, doing math in my head for some reason. I’m on the threshold of sleep when I hear a sudden frantic scrambling; a clink of my potted plant possibly being knocked down onto my bed; a quick, sharp and terrified meow; then finally a thump on my mattress, where my cat lands in … Continue reading

There’s no day like a snow day

Due to “treacherous” driving conditions today, I decided to stay home. One of two of my classes was cancelled because the prof didn’t want us to die on our way in, so I figured that was enough. I mean, added to the fact that I didn’t really feel like going in the first place. Ah, sweet apathy. The day off was even more a blessing because it means 1) my first day of school isn’t until the Thursday of the first week back, and 2) … Continue reading

Plans and Sleep

You ever look at a play-on-words so many times that the real word looks downright out of place the next time you see it? (Probably not.) Tonight, reading Vonnegut’s introduction to Bagombo Snuff Box, I came across the word “comatose”. Just looks weird to me now. The drive-in is fun. It is one of few situations where a station wagon dominates a much sexier car. Any car you can lie down in the back of on a pile of blankets and pillows to watch three … Continue reading
