From 6:3o to 9 a.m.

Went to work (coffee /breakfast with colleague; we didn't get much done — a sort-of friend felt like telling us a really long story about jobs and job-esque things, and I compared him to a person he had just said was difficult to talk to … I love not having a filter right now, being innocuously honest when I say things like, "You're very much the same, just orbiting in two different spheres of artist-ness; I can communicate with both of you separately just fine").

Went to office.

Accomplished weekly mail event thing.

Started thoughts on our management system.

Did not get to the Quickbooks.

Was taken to Hamburger Mary's by workfriend with other friend's car who works there (Mary's).

Ate with them.
Had a chocolate martini.

I have to say that my current state of non-sleep-non-eat means that alcohol doesn't "do" what it usually does. Nothing at all, really.

I am entertained, as usual, by the meta-experience of watching what "it" is all like.

Meant to go to many things – to see people I actually like, not obligation-events.
Determined it was impossible.

Slept from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Tried for more but felt hungry.
Ate, thinking lack of hunger pangs and the addition of digestion would do the trick.
Oh, and here we still are.

kosinski said 2-4 hrs a stretch worked best. 'course his schedule allowed; mine never has though i attempt the regimen often; stepping out of sync is often enough reward.

Your circadian rhythm (nothing to do with baby prevention) is all messed up. Until you get constant habits (nothing to do with nuns) your body won't have a clue what it's time to do.

it doesn't help that i don't remember falling asleep last night, just that in the pre-dawn of 7 a.m. the stupid neighbor was scraping her stupid driveway that's outside my sleeping window. who shovels an inch of snow when it's still snowing? it's all covered over, including her stupid tire tracks from wherever she went, if she even did, because it's hard to tell whether there are any travel tracks at all. talk about people with circadian problems …

my habits of sleeping/waking/working/etc. have never been constant. that sort of thing bores me.

Just remember "homicidal" is not something to kill weeds.

I read this and took away a few things with me.
One is that I'd like to operate without a filter much, much more often. MUCH.

When I read your line "to see people I actually like" I wondered.. err, tried to think of...people I actually like.
And also I tried to think of people I am actually liked by. They were equally difficult.

my comments are all so belated.
