Whew, we’ve got to stop meeting like this!! I mean, it’s 1:50 AM and here I am once again on the couch, writing, wondering why I’m not having some spectacular dream (which doesn’t usually happen anyway) and cursing my crappy sleep habits. Tonight’s non-sleeping issue is especially irritating because I didn’t get off the phone until midnight and didn’t go to sleep until about 12:30. Yup, 12:30, just over an hour ago. Yup, 12:30, TODAY!! This is the craziest damn thing, all I can think of is what the hell is wrong with me….well, could be several things but we’re not going to go there.
This morning I’m thinking that I might be able to find something good on TV or at least something that will put me to sleep but I realize late-night TV is crap….and I mean crap!!
I’m settling on ESPN for once. I did miss some of the highlights as I haven’t been home a lot so this will give me a chance to catch up.
Well, it’s now 3:07 and I’ve caught up on sports, that’s for sure. After SportsCenter it switched over to NFL Primetime which is SportsCenter on football steroids and now we’re back to SportsCenter. I have now watched every highlight about 4 times. Every other show is nothing but SportsCenter, you’re not fooling me. I’m not sure how guys can watch these things over and over again because he still makes the catch, he still drops the ball, he still steps out-of-bounds at the one yard line, she still gets fined $2000 for yelling at the ref (really?), he still hit a home run, the damn Vikings still lost and the Gophers coach still has a seizure!!! How many times do we need to watch the highlights (or lowlights)?
It’s amazing to me how people can watch this stuff over and over and over again and act like it’s the first time they saw it. Ohhhh, when they come back from the commercial now they’re going to tell me who the best of the best of the best was. I can’t wait, I bet it’s something I haven’t seen yet……..or not.
I think Jerry Springer is on somewhere, perhaps I should get an ego boost quick before I try to go to bed again. This show makes my life look like a walk in the park as my parents weren’t cousins, my boyfriend isn’t sleeping with my sister, I’m not pregnant and not sure which of 6 men is my baby’s daddy and I’m not going to lose my shirt on national TV when I get in a fight with my aunt because I’ve been sleeping with her newest husband. Nevermind, that was enough of an ego boost for me not to have to watch it.
Hey, guess what? Tom Brady threw for over 500 yards and the Vikings lost….haven’t heard that yet tonight!!
