i havent been asleep before 3am at all this week. its been a strange week.
a year ago today i was freaking out after being fired i mean laid off, and if i remember correctly i barely enjoyed my time off because i didnt know how quickly i was going to be hired again so i sat around the house, occassionally going over to the mondrian pool to put my feet in the water, but mostly trying to save money.
if the lord gives you manna, eat it. there will be more tomorrow.
one of the nice things about not getting much sleep is it lowers the odds of any dreams. i pretty much hate dreams. dreams are lies sent right to your brain at your most vulnerable. you wake up and if it was a nice dream youre pissed cuz it wasnt true and if it was a nightmare you wake up pissed because your sleep was interrupted.
my life is interesting enough, i dont need any fake versions. but last night i had a dream that i was taking a shower because my girlfriend was coming over to go on a date with me.
whats funny is one of my favorite things is taking a shower preparing for a hot date, but my bathroom is pretty dark and in the dream it was really bright. and i was singing to myself. anyone who has seen my house knows that there is a music machine in every room of this place. three in my bedroom, one in the living room, one in the closet that i write to you, and a water resistant sony boom box in the bathroom. theres no reason for me to be singing.
nor do i sing. but dreams are retards and always get the story wrong so there i was singing. the tune was our house by madness. a song i like. the only reason that could have been in my head was because i was supposed to play it for the wedding but never did. instead i spun it must be love.
when i woke up i wasnt clean, i had no girlfriend, and i was probably the furthest to having one than ive ever been. i dont even think theres a babe in la who even likes me. and further, hell if i know even one line from the madness classic.
now that i have a car, if i were to be laid off again i would drive it around this country and meet girls whove always wanted to kiss me. i was gonna try to kiss lindsay when she visited me but i chickened out cuz i was so sick. murphys law – yesterday i was the least sick that ive been in two months. the two days of working from home was perfect.
i have a new doctor.
doc if youre reading this your pills and your advice were right on the money. so thank you. and i hope you start blogging soon.
kerry wood pitched for the cubs today and gave up a few homers in the loss. but you know what, id rather kerry wood give up a few runs for the cubs than any other asswipe except for mark prior and hes coming back soon too.
