Down and Dirty

We have recently re-acquired satellite. We had it for the first 6 years we lived here, then got rid of it for about 6 years. We took pride in the fact that we didn't have or need all the extra channels. We really didn't watch a whole lot of TV either. It was nice.
What made us decide to get it again? Well, Jason is a HUGE fan of the Jazz, and not a single game is playing on the local stations here. That made my husband very sad, so...we decided to get it again. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I haven't had much time to sit down and channel surf either. Last week, we were talking about just that. Loo and Sue both said they hadn't watched anything on TV yet. I mentioned that I hadn't either. Super pipes in and says "Dad has! He was watching this dirty show." So of course, I have to go give Jason crap about it. Let him know what his daughter says he's been watching. I say "Supe says you've been watching a dirty show" We laughed. Jason was watching "Dirty Jobs" on the Discovery Channel.

Sleeping in Toasters???

If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters. ~author unknown

Morning and I are not friends. I keep trying to be friends with her, but Bed keeps making me stay with her and Pillow. It's so irritating! And why are Covers and I best friends? When Alarm Clock calls, I seldom have time for her right then. I usually tell her "10 more minutes.... please" .

I found this quote a while back, that I think sums up the whole sleeping experience: The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late. ~Charles Caleb Colton

Anyway, I find it extremely hard to drag my butt out of bed in the mornings! Especially since the arrival of fall. The longer hours of nightfall are killing me! I don't know about you, but I find it much easier to get out of bed when the sun is at least starting to rise. And, lately, I've been getting up and into the shower with the lights off. Then at least it feels like I'm prolonging the arrival of a new day. After my shower, my feet find the way to the garage, where I can grab my version of a cup o' Joe (a coke), and then, the rest of the day begins...

Hopefully you enjoyed my ramblings about sleep today! I wanna know...are you a morning person? What gets you up and going in the we small hours of the morning?

Without further ado, here's today's play list: Sleeping Lessons by the Shins and Dream a Little Dream of Me by Ella Fitzgerald and Lois Armstrong.
