Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves.
I can't sleep, have terrible insomnia again. This does not bode well as I have to be up in a scant hour and forty-five minutes to catch a train upstate to teach. I'm on an awful schedule that I can't seem to shake. I can't get to sleep until frightfully late, then I'm asleep during the day and it's not a deep restful sleep because the sun is out, duh. So then I wak eup late in the day, depressed and tired. I feel like I'm in some NYU pre-med deprivation study. At least then I'd get paid.
Plus at this hour there is nothing good on TV because every channel seems to run some god awful informercial from 4 am until 8 am. Jesus! I remember when there were three or four infomercials, now there's at least 20 (Who just dated themselves blatantly? This one). The Cher hair products one was a personal fave. I wonder if they still even make & sell those Lori Davis products.
I ran into my one of my exes today as I was on the way to class. It was odd. Thank god I had makeup on and some semblance of a decent outfit versus my usual androgynous gay PE teacher look. It would have been awesome if I had a cute boy dripping off my arm, but ah, well.
Sometimes when you wear a skirt and heels, guys hit on you. I need to remember that when I stumble around and pull on clothes in the morning under the guding principle of "It's clean and does not make me scratch at myself".
I just went into an inexplicable frenzy and bought a bunch of cookbooks online. I want to start entertaining more and cooking at home for friends.
Cats have 3 eyelids.
I think I will go to karaoke tomorrow night in Queens.
For some reason when I'm riding the subway I assume everyone is staring at me.
Someone told me I had the "sexy librarian" look going for me recently. I was delighted, as I always assume I have the "dumpy soccer Mom trying for hip" look going on. If that Mom was drunk and obnoxiously forcing her friends to dance to Destiny's Child at their own party while wearing a baby blue feather boa, after jumping on their bed and dumping a vodka lemonade on it. You know, same old same old.
I am going to go lay in my bed and close my eyes and play possume for and hour and fifteen minutes now. Thanl you kindly.
