Middle of the Night Observations

OK, so if anyone has a real reason I should NEVER sleep again, please let me know. Otherwise, I'm seriously irritated. I went to bed at 8:30, finally fell asleep around 10:30, woke up to go to the bathroom and thought it had to be like 3 or 4. Nope. It was 11:02. WHAT?! I went to the bathroom and cursed Christopher as he slept soundly, snoring and drooling, as I grabbed my pillows and made my way out to the couch. I went to sleep and woke up again to go to the bathroom, convinced it would be like 5 this time. Um, wrong. 2:02. Great. I just watched a show on HGTV about Ed Bagley, Jr. installing some satellite irrigation system and $400 plugs in his house to shut everything in his house off by flipping one switch when he leaves. Swell. Interesting to know, but I'd rather be sleeping.

Who believes this crap on television in the middle of the night? Does anyone REALLY think that Penny on this infomercial bought this information about how to be a power seller on EBay, quit her job, and made $3700 her first week working from home? If you do, you need the "Auctions for Income" system for only $39.95. You can probably buy it on EBay. Patrick is making up to $12,000 a week in sales. He clearly is up in the middle of the night too. And uses Meth so he can be on his computer 24 hours a day to make that money. And DAGMAR averages $5,000-$8,000 a month, which is more than she makes at her full-time job. I think that's a damn lie, because if she really made that much money she'd get her teeth fixed and a new hairstyle before she went on television. Even if it is on in the middle of the night. And what the hell kind of a name is Dagmar?

And I just read an article on Yahoo news about a gang in L.A. The first paragraph made me laugh out loud. Not funny laughing, but laughing because it's so ridiculous. The headline is LA gang F13 accused of targeting blacks. "In a murderous quest aimed at "cleansing" their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County's most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation found." HELLO! It's a damn GANG!! Not typically known for their nice behaviors, helpful ways, and tolerance for other people, is it a freaking surprise to anyone that they'll kill someone "just because they're black?" This is the headline article on Yahoo news! Stupid.

I'm sure I'll have more observations, but quite frankly I would rather try to go to sleep than expound about their virtues. . .

Being someone who is lucky to catch 2 consecutive hours of sleep at a time, I feel your pain. Early morning TV programming sucks. Your observations are quite funny I might say. It's amazing that your wit never sleeps! :)
