E. and I have discussed this many a time (because we've discussed almost everything)--sleep is a waste of time. There are so many other things I'd much rather do than sleep. A sampling:
watch other assorted TV shows (mostly of the PBS or Discovery Channel variety)
listen to music
have sex (or contemplate the lack of)
See? It's a waste of time. I love the feeling of cool sheets as much as anyone else, but the result of a comfy bed and clean sheets is usually 5-8 hours of inactivity, and that makes me crazy. If I'm going to be inactive for 5-8 hours I like to enjoy it...awake. Doing one or a combination of those things listed above.
Tonight, instead of sleeping, I've been watching TV and listening to music. I've downloaded a variety of tunes, the majority of a very angsty emo variety. For instance, did you know that Jared Leto has a band?? Remember him? He was Jordan all-silky-hair-and-killer-eyes Catalano from My So-Called Life..by far the best angsty teen show ever in the history of the world. Dawson's Creek had nothing on Angela, Ricky, Raeanne, and the MSCL crowd. So anyway, the band is called 30 Seconds to Mars. I guffawed when I saw our poor Mr. Leto on Carson Daley's show.
1. I hate Carson
2. Jared was all blacked-out..goth with cheese if you please (that's him, to the far right)
Much to my chagrin I liked the song. Oh the humanity! So I'm listening to "The Kill" over and over. Jared has quite the pleasing voice.
That one download got me contemplating other angsty emo, which led me to download "Something Beautiful" by Cauterize that I heard ages ago and never took off on radio.
That got me thinking about the other musical conversations I've had lately...mostly with Beth at drunken parties. So, I downloaded "100 Ways" by Porno for Pyros just now, and I'm enjoying it muchly.
As much as I hate sleep, my aching shoulders and back are about to win out over my desire to sit up and do mildly amusing things that make me feel productive. On that note, I go to bed.
P.S. What the hell was with the e-mails we received from the poet laureate of English 521? Anyone else find those odd and slightly needy/creepy?
