Six words--"Haven't slept since I was fourteen"

Love these pictures.
1)We can't nuke Nevada until EmPo and Bradly have made their exit, but I love the idea. See side post by Danielson.
2)Bulletin--In our latest "Get to Bed by 1AM" contest, Crystal Fair has won the first week. Bless her little brat heart. It was close--for awhile, then she won by a landslide; therefore, I admit owing her a shake or smoothie of her choice.
3)However, there's always next week. And I KNOW I can beat her because she's a night-aholic just like moi--we howl at the moon and jig jag under stars--which is not easy to overcome. Let's raise the stakes--dinner at Winger's or Applebees? We start again Monday, which means I begin getting ready at 8AM on Sunday. Whaaaaa...

Yay! I'm cool! That is all I ever wanted. I'm intrigued by this get to bed by 1am idea. I would toltally lose at this. The whole "don't have a summer job yet" thing mutilates any sense of proper timing for sleeping, waking, eating, showering...you know, all the stuff we need to do. I've learned that routines are creatures of necessity not programming or whatever it is that we do to ourselves to make us get up at five in the morning. When I was working and had to truck myself out to San Jose everymoring I could pretty much count on my body to wake up and I'd run through my daily routine. Wake up, shower, dress and out on the road. Quick on the road breakfast while listening to the morning show on Live 105. Guess how long that lasted after school got out. Is there a way to measure in negative time? So since that time I have been staying up until I can't hack it any longer. Waking up when I get hungry and showering when I need to leave the house. Where did my routine go? And the worst part is that I can't figure out which lifestyle I prefer. Sometimes I just feel like a chunk of meat hanging on some hook waiting for Stalone to punch me and make me useful. Other times though, I love the fact that I can do what I want when I want and if that is nothing and never then so be it. But I know that soon necessity will come knocking on my door again because I can't survive for two months without income and I will be forced back into a routine that has me going to bed at 11 and waking somewhere between 5 and 6. So until then I await Mr. Balboa because it is Saturday and I don't have any real plans. So until then, i respectfully remove my name from the bed by 1 contest and will make a grand and glorious return to the running when life and politics so demand...
Until then my best wishes to you all. Take care and keep laughing.

Does anyone want to start up a competition with me, one that I have a really good chance of winning? I'm totally out of cash until pay-day and I could use a milkshake. Maybe it could be something like a having-a-middle-name-that-starts-with-CH contest, or the person-that-doesn't-actually-work-at-the-Writing-Center-but-spends-a-lot-of-time-there contest (I think that makes me a loser). Any takers? Again, the reward is a milkshake of my choice. So let me know soon, that would be pretty cool.

Nate Russ said...

so if I havent slept last night, who do I owe a milkshake? Chan? I'd be worried, but NO ONE can make it through priesthood with out catching a few z's. I would just love to say something witty here, but everyone knows you can't pump anything out of a dry well. Night everyone.

iBo said...

You could probably pump dirt out of a dry well...

I'll do a contest with you Chan, or I could just buy you a milkshake for all the rides you've given me over the semester.

Sky said...

Ivor, how nice, especially since I don't see Chan offering up an intelligent life-saving contest like mine and Crystal's. (Chan, come to seminar--treats from Eric and Kiersten's birthdays OR come back to work for the Center where you make more MONEY.)Gotta get to bed to beat C. tonight. Cyrstal, we better let All-nighter Nathan into the contest. He'll be a cinch to beat.

Crystal said...

Yes, Nathan should join our contest so that we look good.
I'm going to beat you again, though. hahaha.


My hand looks like it's trying to kill/suffocate me.
