the good thing about insomnia …if there can be a good thing…(and ask anyone im notorious for finding a positive in everything) is that you can make calls to hong kong….of course the bad thing about it last night…was that i didnt really have anything i needed to say to anyone in hong kong…so there was that….i thought about calling anyway…maybe try one of those saucy lil sexy time phone numbers but… then i remembered you can call those late at night here too… so it seemed like a waste of an international phone call… soo i put my head back… tried to sleep…and everyone knows when you try to sleep…is when you have a brilliant idea that you work out thoroughly in your mind… alll the meandering details and all the  eventualities…you work out the perfect words to say… the deeds to do …and the order in which to do them…all of your arguments are sound and sympathetic … and then

you wake up …

youre late for work….youre not packed…your dog has an upset tummy and now needs a bath… your throat is still sore ….so you eat some ice cream for breakfast WHILE bathing the dog in the kitchen sink…swallow some dayquil caplets with an ibuprofen  chaser for luck… throw everything in a bag… go back twice to make sure you unplugged all the christmas lights that for some reason (which seemed cheery at the time and now seems like nonsense) are in every nook and corner of the house upstairs AND downstairs… inside AND outside… force the dog into a sweater so she wont catch her death…. and pile the whole mess into a tiny roadster of a car while being buffeted by icy nordic winds (maybe im being dramatic but the wind was verrry cold) and about 30 min into the hour long drive you realize you forgot your phone…you reallly consider just buying a new phone … but since youve blown your Dec budget soooo far out of the water that Kim Jung Il wants to talk to you….you turn around…and go back…. and by the time you get to the office youve not only forgotten the elegant solution to your problem…youve also forgotten that there is NO TOILET PAPER in the city….

christ on a cracker…

Tuesday you’re my Monday…and you win…

xoxo
