sleepman, champion of slumber
Sometimes I pay for being stubborn. Thanks in part to Indiana's staunch refusal to recognize daylight savings time, it's sometime around 5 in the morning when our youngest daughter wakes up (she's up with the sun; if we were on daylight savings, she'd sleep til 6 instead). And of course that means I've been waking up earlier than usual--definitely earlier than I want to.
Despite this fact, I've still been striving to get some geek time in after my wife and girls go to bed, staying up til after 11 watching a movie or anime or playing PlayStation. So every day, I'm just a little bit more sleep-deprived. I don't complain about it, since it's by choice.
Well, last night I paid for it. I was planning on doing much-needed grocery shopping after the girls went to bed, but as I was patting Naomi to sleep, I apparently dozed off myself--at about 8 p.m.! I didn't wake up until around 11, and by then it was too late, so I just slept the rest of the night. I admit I feel refreshed today, but I really needed to go to the store, not to mention I missed my evening Final Fantasy VIII session.
Oh, well. I still have something to make for dinner, so we aren't hurting that badly. I'll go tonight, and swing by the video store to drop off last week's movies and pick up some more on two-for-99-cent-Tuesday.
By the way, here's what I rented last week:
Also, Memento on DVD (which isn't covered by the two-for-99-cent plan; I got it for my lovely wife and myself to watch before she left for Denver last week).
