Being overtired has not improved the sight of the blue Christmas lights that still festoon the house up the block, and I'm still a bit miffed at myself for having slept through both the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, and then forgotten to watch either of today's reruns of last nights shows. I blame the balmy weather which has enervated me and the drought which has probably desiccated my brain. Also I haven't cooked myself a decent meal in four days, and the diet of canned beans, microwaved burritos, sandwiches, and random leftovers on the verge of going bad has surely not helped.
Tomorrow morning the mulberry tree in my front yard is supposed to get trimmed back, so there will be great noise and commotion. This would be a good night for me to get plenty of sleep, but I wouldn't be surprised if I end up staying awake until all hours. That happens frequently when I'm overtired. Maybe I can find something really boring on television. Carbo-loading and an extra bottle of beer might help, too. I think I'll make some buttered noodles.
