phone duty  

We got another 100 votes on Last Days yesterday, although somehow it’s still not back on the trending projects page! But if we make it to at least 1570 votes today, I will send a book to somebody who reports their number in to me today, just for fun. (And also because I have an overstuffed bookcase full of my own books, sigh, but let’s pretend it’s all just for fun. :)) The Last Days project. :)

I’ve taken, the past several nights, to going to bed by 9:30. It’s embarrassing, but probably good for me. And someday I’ll learn that if I wake up at 5:something for the call of nature, I’m not going back to sleep so I might as well get up and work instead of lying in bed being grumpy about everybody else being asleep while I’m not. I mean, obviously, I *know* it, but I still keep trying to go back to bed.

okay, things i have to do today:
- go to bank
- find a pen to sign that form
- put form in envelope
- bring enveloped form to post office & mail it
- call some preschools
- call plumber
- call greyhound
- call airtricity
- get phone insurance argh i don’t have my wallet with me

how can sitting in one place looking things up online and making phone calls feel like so much work?

i'm 1570! :)

i vote every day, but i have noticed what sometimes when i go to vote, the system says that i've already voted. this is odd because i vote at the same time every day.... o_O

Sometimes you have to reload the page before it works.

It seems to be a fault. Once this is over I'm going to complain like h**l to Guinness about the way they wrote their pages.

I was 1579! Broke 1570 and the day is still young on the West Coast! :)

I’ve taken, the past several nights, to going to bed by 9:30. It’s embarrassing, but probably good for me.

I tweeted something to this effect a couple weeks ago, but fuck embarrassed. :) You need sleep, it helps deal with the effects of stress, it's healthy, it helps with weight loss, and if you're waking up at 5:30 and not getting back to sleep, it's better for you.

You're old enough by now that you should make peace with what's good for you instead of some misguided conception of what society expects as a sleep schedule. As long as your immediate household is cool with it, do it, and enjoy the extra sleep. <3

It's not societal pressure, I just think 9pm is a terrible time to have to go to bed. :)

There was a time a few years ago when I was having to go to bed at 7pm every night. That is a terrible time to go to bed. 9pm sounds like toddler time. :)

Okay, okay, you win. :)

Haha, I don't want to win, I mostly just want you to let go feeling any kind of negative emotion for wanting to go to bed at 9pm. If you need to, you need to! A well-rested Kit will be a happier Kit!

I've been pretty well asleep by 10pm (and sometimes rather earlier) for the past several nights and I'm afraid I do in fact feel quite a lot better. Go figure.

Shocked, I say. Shocked! :-O

(FWIW, I've also been dedicating myself to trying to get to bed 'on time' and 8 hours of sleep. And, amazingly, I've been feeling less tired as well. *fistbump*)

Woot! I'm 1583.

I TRIED to go to bed at 9:15 last night... then realized that the new grass desperately needed watering, so didn't end up getting to bed until nearly 11.

it feels like so much work because it *is* work.....

I got the "already voted today" message too. I'll try again later. But it was at 1587
