shhh... it's a secret

Dude, I'm beat, yo.

No, I haven't transformed into some sort of gangster/hippie hybrid overnight, but 'd' to the 'a•m•n' am I tired.

Too tired, in fact, to make coffee this morning, and since we're out of K-cups, I had tea. And tea is no substitute for coffee. Don't believe me? Why don't you go back and re-read that first sentence. Believe me now? Just be thankful I'm not to the point where I'm deliriously rolling around on the floor laughing like a maniacal crazy person. It's been known to happen, is all I'm saying.

This clock has no relevance to this post. I just thought it was cool.

So you might be wondering why the frick-frack I'm so tired (and when did I start becoming the type of person to replace all my curse words?)? Well, you got me (on both counts). It's not like I'm doing anything all day. However, if I have to blame something, I'm inclined to blame the following:
  1. Medication. I'm on it. You don't need to know the details. Moving on.
  2. Tension. The tension in the world of OBG is at extreme levels right now. What with job searching, apartment searching, money woes and so on and so on. I believe mental exhaustion can be more debilitating than physical exhaustion.
  3. Laziness. I'm pretty sure I read studies about this sort of thing. The less active you are, the more tired you are. Or something like that. The only part of me getting any exercise lately are my fingers. I'm having a hard time convincing myself that it's okay to step away from the computer and the grind of job searching. 
  4. Xbox and Dexter. Two things that have consumed my evenings of late. And when it's bedtime, these two get together in my dreams for nocturnal parties that drain the life out of me.
  5. My Sleep Schedule. It's all out of whack. As I've discussed before, I'm a night person, and I have a tendency to be an insomniac. It is physically impossible for me to fall asleep before eleven pm, and often times, one am. And while I can be quite functional on a mere six hours of sleep, it is cruel and unusual punishment for me to be rudely awakened by bells and whistles and fog horns and alarms before seven am. Especially when I have a tendency to wake up during the night every few hours. *Sigh* I am so not built for the real world. 
So yeah, I'm tired. But I also have shit to do today, so while I'd really like to go take a quick power nap, I might actually go fold some laundry. Or something like that. And yeah, this post really has no point, but whatev'. I'm too tired to think. Get over it.

These two do not play well in sleepy time dreamland.

Oh, and I think this weekend is going to be relatively tame (thank God), but I did hear rumors of bowling tomorrow night, so that'll be cool. What are your weekend plans? Hope they're good ones (but if they're not, that's okay too).

So..I'm the only employee where I work and 2 days a week I'm by myself. Work is done in less than an hour. Anyway, all that to set the stage and say that I watched Seasons 1 - 4 of Dexter while at work. Somehow I think this will come back to haunt me but until then, I'm going to enjoy my little secret haha. I'm sort of obsessed with that show. haha! Anyway, sorry you're tired...its not fun. I replaced coffee with a smoothie today and it's not happenin' either.

I need more coffee. And then a bit more after that.

I was feeling the dolldrums the last few weeks in a bad way. Just when I thought I was coming out of them today hit and I feel like a sack of poo again.

We watched Dexter's 1-3 and are waiting till August 8 when the 4th season comes out on DVD. Love that show.

Try The Wire...that was my last year's obsession.

Tea is NO substitute for coffee. Ever. It has it's place but NOT as a substitute. Trying to be productive this weekend. Not starting out well on blogger at 8am though.
