Q: Why am I publishing this at 3:00am on Saturday night?
A: I am working the nightshift presently. Back on nights for about a month, and already remembering that jetlagged feeling. Reality starts to curve and bend on your 11th hour, and after shorting your sleep schedule, dreamlife and your own lucid thoughts are really competing for space. Luckily, I've finally gotten myself stablized in terms of not dozing off at 3:00am.
Unfortunately, with my crazy schedule comes the return of the old stomach problems -- acidity and endurance seem to be tied up in my efforts to stay awake (and cheap coffee at work aint helping matters any). I definately know now why I had to leave this schedule... I can't remember why I stayed on as long as I had (2 years).
Socially, I've not missed anything. I went to a party over at Rachel and Lyle's this evening, and have been out the past few nights seeing films (to be reviewed later)... The downside is that you can't really drink and relax as you normally could (obviously, as I had to go to work in a few hours), and most bands will take the stage at 12:00, so going to see shows are out of the question on those nights. Oh well, this will only last until mid-january, then back on days.
So, after few feeble attempts a coupla months ago - I ineptly kept opening blog's only to forget their password, and then not wanting that lag time between the original post and the actual date, I'm going to again start over... Afterall, new year, new journal, new space. Hoping to eventually get a website so I can start posting this for all family to see along with photos, so for now, I'll just crash here.

So hello. If you are reading this, you are reading the beginning of what I am hoping to be regular updates about yours truly, unsolicited and uninformed opinions (because I keep posting to BB's and getting smacked down for uhhh opening my big mouth), and general reviews and rants about life here in the great NW...
