Okay... I Fell Asleep in My Chair... So What?

The neighbor came by this evening and knocked on my door and asked me what was going on.

I said, "What are you talking about?"

Connie then points to my front yard.

My front lawn is emblazened with bright lights and a carnivalistic atmosphere has overtaken it.

There is this huge, gigantic blue blow-up swimming pool with a giant slide on one end *and* in the middle. There are water fountains and sprinkler thingies spraying over the slides. There is blue vinyl surrounding the entire pool so that your feet never touch the ground.

Kids are all over the place playing and splashing and running around the monstrous kaleidoscopic swimming pool. There's water spraying and splashing everywhere. The bright lights that are surrounding it makes the splashing water appear like there are diamonds flying everywhere. And music is playing...

I walk up to a man standing next to an 18-wheeler. I presume that this is the vehicle that delivered *the exhibit* to my front lawn. I ask him what is he doing here and, "Why are you doing this in my front yard!?"

The man says that I signed up for some kind of sampling survey thingy and that this is one of the *samples*. He added, "We're testing the market in your neighborhood."

*What the heck?!*

Carrie then comes up to me and starts telling me about her convention trip... and how her ceramic dog broke and that it didn't get to be judged because it was broken on the trip down.

Then Carrie tells me how she didn't do well at all with any of her entries.

Hey... Wait a minute! What *ceramic dog*?!

And then I woke up.

Can you sue a university and a professor for *brain injury*??

I have been having the hardest time reading this book that we have been assigned in my government class. I can't hardly stand it. I keep falling asleep when I try to read it.

This evening was not any different... I am trying to read my book. I got really, really sleepy and fell asleep in *my chair*. Again!

I had this crazy dream... and woke up at 9pm!!

I was asleep for THREE HOURS!


I think my brain is being tortured and traumatized by this *horrible* book!

Somehow my neuropathways are trying to protect themselves from the horrible abuse of boredom.

I am *never* bored... and my brain is having quite a physiological reaction to this book!

I am being emotionally tortured...

In fact... I think my whole body is being traumatized by this book.

What am I going to do?

I have to write a TEN PAGE PAPER on this @#%~& book!!!

Another dilemma...

I have been tagged by two people...



Scan Man's Notes


It's all my fault.

It's my fault for being soooo slow...

I guess that's how you get tagged. Right?

For being slow?

I'm sorry.

I will see what I can do.

I have really never travelled, nor am I as an exciting of a person as everyone else is, and well...

I just don't do what a lot of other normal people do?

I have just now eaten my dinner and now it's time for ?bed?


The picture is from another reading assignment from this past summer. It was a nice day outside and I just wanted to enjoy it. The cat wouldn't leave me alone and let me read. He kept jumping up on my lap and laying down on my book.

I tell ya...

Reading isn't for sissies.

Oh TJ ... do I ever empathize with you. *comfort* Is there any chance whatsoever that the book comes in the form of a tape? If it did, you could play it while you're working at other things ...

I can't imagine a more boring subject than government anyway.

TJ, have you ever thought that it might be the normal people who stay home and enjoy life rather than the other way around?

I like the way you think Moof! I hate traveling!!!

I hope you can get through the book TJ, nothing is worse than a boring book that's required reading. It was invented by the chinese during WW2 when the water torture didn't work!

So Moof... Do you think I might be normal? That would be a comforting thought...

No tape books for me. I am partially deaf so I have a hard time with those kinds of things.

It was invented by the chinese during WW2 when the water torture didn't work!

I believe it!!

I'm expecting them to call me at any time now to pick them up.

And no...

They didn't call once during this past week.

I hope they did well.
