At 2:37am I finally complete the business of the day and lay myself down for much needed rest. I quickly fall into dreamland but apparently I bought a round trip ticket because I wake up about five past three feeling refreshed and invigorated. Oh no! I have accidentally taken a power nap. That doesn't help me at all! Takes another hour to fall back asleep, and though I wish I could report otherwise, my slumber is troubled and dis-pleasant.
My alarms go off at the usual time (I have two alarms in case one breaks down) and I can't help but groan. In two weeks I will be 27. I guess I've gone from being a "young man" to just a "man" although maybe I skipped "man" and went straight to "old man." As I fumbled with the coffee maker I was like "Ooouggh. Ahhhh. Dammit. Grrrrrr." Later I fell asleep while brushing my teeth, and I didn't even think that was possible.
On the way to work I saw a license plate holder that said "Utah Utes - Kick Ass." That's stupid. It might as well say "I like sports." License plate holders ain't what they used to be. Where is the wordplay, the puns, the double entendres? What a sad state of affairs. When I was in High School Debate our slogan was "CHS Debate: We kick aff." Now THAT was a pun, my friends. I don't remember what it means though...
By the way, though I did high school debate I wasn't very good at it. Does that make me more of a nerd or less of a nerd?
The one good thing about my morning has been this new CD mix I made. Though I'm not particularly a fan of Metallica or metal in general, I put their cover of Thin Lizzy's cover of the Olde Irish Folk Song "Whiskey in the Jar" on there. That was just the song I needed this morning. The lyrics really speak to me. "Mah shareem shamado shamada." True dat, holmes.
I wore my sunglasses on the way to work, and I haven't taken them off yet. I'm going to keep them on until someone says something.
Earlier today someone found my blog by googling "R2D2 mailbox sightings Denver." Sorry I couldn't help you with that, stranger. Hopefully you'll stick around. There is much to learn here.
Okay I'm done for now.
