Bad Timing?

I did something stupid yesterday. Yes, stupider than usual. I took a nap when I got home from work. That's right. I arrived home around 5:30 p.m., crawled into bed and dozed for almost an hour. It felt like a fine idea at the time. Our flannel sheets, clean and alluring, drew me into the depths of relaxation with their sneaky cuddly comfort. The sounds of my happy sighs drowned out the tiny niggling voice in the back of my head saying "Suzanne, oh Suzanne! You are going to regret this!"

That tiny niggling voice was right, of course. At 1:00 a.m. I lay awake in our bed, my girlfriend warm and snuggly, sound asleep at my side. Dudley was lightly snoring and Cosine was making her own dent in the mattress. I, however, was not sleepy. I'd had a nap.

I think my eyes were the only tired part of my body so reading was out. The words blurred on the page. So I surfed. Channel surfed. On my side, curled around Wendy, my head propped on a pillow just high enough to see the television screen over her shoulder. I eventually drifted off to sleep with fragments of these pointless thoughts sliding around inside my head.
  • Can there be any nutritive value, real or imagined, to a Checkers Chili Cheeseburger? Imagine someone wolfing down that slimy creation while driving, plastic cheese and chili dripping down the steering wheel and on to the driver's leg. Yum?

  • Keanu Reeves' new movie "Constantine": the trailer is horrid. I don't think I've ever seen anything less likely to lure me into dropping $9 for a movie ticket. Does it truly appeal to anyone? Then again, I'm not the best one to answer that question. I can't think of even one Keanu movie I found appealing.

  • Dominos Pizza has a new commercial out which gives a human form to days of the week. If I were a day of the week, I'd like to be Saturday. Maybe Sunday. Unfortunately, I think I come across more like a Monday most of the time.

Despite your feelings towards Keanu Reeves, I will still continue to read your blog ;) Have you ever seen "I Love You To Death" - one of my all-time favorite movies. He and William Hurt play stoner brothers. Kevin Kline, Tracy Ullman, Lawrence Oliver's widow, River Phoenix - great cast, great fun.

Awesome blog. Monday wouldn't be so bad. It's the day of fresh starts.

P.S. I'm going to steal some of your links.

Keanu, or Canoe, as I like to call him for no reason other than I think it is one of those endearing things I do, didn't ruin Much Ado About Nothing. That is the most positive thing I can say for Canoe.

I love Saturday afternoon naps, but I too, often pay the price. They are just so darn refreshing!!
