i'm ready for my close up mr demille

the amazing saga of Loren the Mighty

Location: Indianapolis

I don't like sleeping for enormous lengths of time. It's not that it isn't good for me, but I feel like so much is lost, like, a part of my life is gone that I can't get back. I've often wished I was a chronic insomniac who just needed to "rest" every now and then. I slept for about 11 hours last night, borne largely out of boredom. Funny thing is I managed to wake up an hour earlier because I forgot I was in a new time zone. So, I vacuumed my truck this morning. It needed it so bad.

My next load comes out of Indy tonight around midnight and I head for Chicago (deadpan "yay"). It appears this weekend I am heading back to the east coast to Connecticut. I'll probably find some time to visit NYC some more (if they get that power outage thingie under control), although, I haven't been home now in three weeks. I was kinda hoping to go home this weekend, but I guess I shouldn't complain. I'm getting some miles and some nice paychecks, which are so desperately needed.

Without further ado, the journal quote of the week comes from my own journal, or rather, a comment left in my journal. It was left anonymously, but I think it's safe to say that it was letsjank: In your defense, I will say that I understand why one such as yourself would avoid serious self examination: The necessary result would be suicide.
You can follow the whole thread here if you care.

I was listening to the radio today, something which I do from time to time. I find myself listeing to a variety of things: sometimes I feel all information hungry and listen to NPR and on occasion I'll lsiten to country music stations, but the staple of my radio listening is generally rock/pop stations. Today I was listeing to an oldies station. For your information, yes, every oldies station in the country does claim to provide "good times and great oldies." Just like the classic rock stations all do "double shots" on "two-fer-Tuesdays". It's a law.

Forget Iraq and North Korea... Emo and Nu Metal are the real axis of evil.
