two things

Two things I learned about myself today, that I probably already knew.

1. Sometimes, I talk too much. Sometimes, talking more doesn't make things better. 
2. If I paint a wall all on my own, I'm less likely to lay on the floor and take breaks, and more likely to just motor on through. 
Who knew.

thursday morning thought. on paper. to be transcribed later. you're welcome.

Thursday, April 6, 9 am. - I'm at school. Subbing. I'd actually have been more than ok being home. To nap. I really have nothing. No thing. Hallway people are being loud.

Once I've told somebody something, it's "out there," and I don't feel the draw to come in here and write about it. Maybe I should just stop telling people things until after I've blogged.

I didn't sleep much last night, probably because of all the coke in the paralyzers. After a night of tossing and turning and weird dreams, I finally just gave up on having a really good sleep at about 5:30.

Then, all the coffee, and catching up on some blogs I read, and wondering why I essentially quit.

Tennyson was up here at 6:30 and hopped on the other computer. Did you know that boys can't play computer games without becoming their own narrat…
