What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

I’ve been up since 9:30 yesterday morning — over 29 hours now — and I’m not sleepy yet. This is bizarre. Maybe I’ve developed a tolerance for long waking hours, since I’ve done 24-hour-plus days five or six times so far this month, as a way of resetting my sleeping schedule. I tend to gravitate toward staying up late (3:00, 4:00, 5:00 a.m.), and sleeping in late (11:00 a.m., noon, mid-afternoon) . . . because although I can put off going to bed indefinitely, once I fall asleep it kills me to get up again without a good seven or eight hours of slumber, at least.

But sometimes I just have to be up early. So instead of sleeping fewer hours, I don’t go to bed at all. This usually leaves me feeling pretty wasted after 27 hours or so, and I end up going to bed around 5:00 in the afternoon. And then the schedule starts to slide later and later again, until I’m right back where I started.

I didn’t even feel like nodding off during church today, which surprised me. I’m not usually the nodding-off-in-church type, but I figured I’d be fighting off the yawns today, at least. Not so.

So I guess I’ll watch another movie and then try to crash.
