It's the middle of the night, why aren't you awake to entertain me?

That has to be one of the longest titles I've had on here. But, that doesn't really answer my question. I'm working midnights, so you all need to be awake and on Twitter, or Facebook, or anything. It's boring checking out Twitter and seeing nobody has updated. What am I supposed to read? I'm reading the new Dean Koontz book, but reading a book puts me to sleep at 3 in the morning. Reading Twitter, or something along those lines doesn't. Hey, I have to be awake, why doesn't everybody? (Quick, how many times does "read" show up in that last paragraph?)

This was not a fun day. I should say yesterday wasn't. I worked overnight, then had to go pick up my mom at my brother's house, and take her to the doctor. At least, that was the plan. It turned into me going home, picking up my daughter who was sick, go get my mom, have my daughter get sick in the car, go to Target to get her some clothes, call my sister to meet me at my mom's, have my sister take my mom to the doctor, and then go home. Not that I went home to sleep, I just went home. I went to sleep at 4 pm and woke up at 9 pm to get ready for work. I guess you can say I'm a little tired.

We have the TV on at work (no sound) and there isn't even any good infomercials on. That is always one of the highlights of the midnight shift. Instead we are getting "Breaking News" on the Tiger Woods story. From 8 hours ago. I think it is safe for them to drop the "Breaking News" off of it. Don't you think? Speaking of that, I think Larry King had Pat O'Brien on to talk about the whole Tiger thing. Is he really to best person to talk to about this? I guess Kobe Bryant was busy.

That's all I have. I was trying to think of other things I was going to talk about, but I'm too tired to remember. Maybe tomorrow night.

I think maybe you should start following some people from Europe or something on Twitter. They might be up and about at 3 AM your time. (Of course, they might also be tweeting in languages you can't read - that could be a problem.)

Well, now I know why you're always so informed about the latest "as seen on TV" stuff. You'd think they'd have better infomercials during holiday shopping season.

Florinda: Maybe I should I follow Neil Gaiman but he's here most of the time. Twitter gets quiet around 2 AM or so. :)
