year from now

Missed it by *that* much

Well, damn. I'm late.

It's been my goal this week to throw a LJ post your way at least once every calendar day. I mean, let's face it. Historically, my posts don't come frequently. I figured that I'd get you used to seeing my icons on your friends page... And then, when I went back to my old days of not writing, you'd miss seeing me there and demand more. Oh, well.

Actually, I would have been in here before midnight but I was having a conversation in my truck. Sometimes I call people while driving home and when I get here... I just don't come inside. There are too many distractions inside. Besides, it's fun to get comfortable and watch the crazy neighbors come and go.

Wait, who am I calling crazy? I'm the one sitting in my truck in the middle of the night.

I'm not a smart man

I am in the middle of a battle. I'm probably losing.

Right now, it's Fletch versus Sleep. I scored two hours Tuesday night. I only had about five hours Wednesday night -- and that was work sleep, so it only counts for 2.5 hours. Granted I took a nap yesterday for a couple or three hours... but it that certainly wasn't enough to catch me up. So now, I'm sitting here at 4:30 in the morning refusing to sleep. Why? How retarded can one person be?

I look at my bed. It does not seem inviting. There are things I need to do. I have groceries to buy. I have cleaning to do. I have entries to write. Whao. Wait. Did I say that I have groceries to buy? Who thinks about groceries at 4:30 a.m.? Oh, that's right. A man with an empty fridge *and* pantry. But anyhow... the point is that although I've only had 10 hours sleep since Tuesday morning, I'm still not jumping into the depths of sleep as I should.

This is proof that I make everything in my life much harder than I should.

This is also proof that you can't write a good entry with your eyelids half-closed and your mind already gone for the night. Somebody wake me up later so I can delete this sucker.
