Wasting a Saturday.


Waking up really late drives me crazy. It’s not just the “losing three hours of the day” thing that drives me nuts, but when I wake up on the weekends, I don’t feel like my day has actually started until after I’ve gone to the gym. And if I don’t wake up until 10 a.m.? And I want a cup of coffee? And maybe some oatmeal? And then I need to digest before I go to the gym? And when I get back from the gym and I have to shower? That means my Saturday really doesn’t start until 2 p.m. It’s March, so that gives me about four hours of daylight. At the most.

What’s worse is when you go through all that, with your sleeping in and all, and then your body has the audacity to go and get SLEEPY on you at 8 p.m. Seriously. I think my body is confused. Feeding it chocolate-covered peanut butter pretzels for dinner probably didn’t do much for my energy levels, but still. Am miffed. All I really managed to do today was go to Trader Joe’s (where I went crazy with impulse buys and spent more than $100 to replenish my empty-except-for-condiments fridge) and the gas station before watching really bad TV with Kel for a couple hours.

I seriously debated getting into bed at 9 p.m. but felt lame, so I drank a cup of coffee. I’m awake now, but barely functioning. Maybe I’ll read for a while. The new Kate Atkinson is so good it’s making me crazy. I saved it all week long while I was in San Francisco for work so I’d have something to look forward to this weekend while Adam is DJing. NOW IS THE TIME.

p.s. Also making me crazy is the new Basia Bulat album. “Walk You Down” is my favorite, although this versions starts very abruptly. Unfortunately live video of her new album is hard to come by and also, apparently, un-embeddable. Thanks, YouTube.
