Understanding platitudes

OK, first of all, I'm having a kick ass weekend. Limited major commitments, the weather rocks and I slept through the night for the first time in months.

Anyway, I've discovered the validity of a few platitudes this weekend. This is the kind of inane stuff that runs through my mind when I am not working. Enjoy.

Better living through science: I can verify that this one is indeed true. Because I went to the doctor on Thursday and now I am finally sleeping. You know all those things that complete the sentence "It's better than_____". Well, when you aren't getting sleep, it's better than all that stuff and pizza too. Because you can't even begin to enjoy that stuff fully when you are walking around like the un-dead. My eyes look alive again. Whee!

Playing Possum: Jonas freaked the crap out of one this morning. When I saw it and called him inside, it was just laying there. I thought it was dead. A few minutes later it was gone (it was just a little one). And yes, I know that it's called an opossum. It's just that nobody says "playing opossum" (well, anyone who does is super annoying).

You don't sh*t where you eat: Well, I've really only heard this one. However, I can confirm that if you are a dog in my house, you do pee where you sleep. Is that close enough? And so we have the "big green carpet cleaning machine" out today. With the heat, the carpet will dry in a jiffy. But still, Jonas...bad doggy! My weekend was supposed to be filled with bathing suits, books and chardonnay. Naughty, naughty boy.

  1. Good read…But as an Espresso junky I just have to know what you craved for your first drink after such a successful night’s sleep. Please tell us if it was enjoyable. 😉

  2. Greetings Heather,

    This is the first post of your I have read (I think), got your RSS feed via the Microsoft Community Blog Posts feed.  I like your style so I will be sure to visit more often.

    Here’s to sleeping through the night, as if I knew what that was like!

    wisemx – I’m addicted to Peet’s Arabian Mocha Java. I have it shipped. And yes, it’s so enjoyable after a night’s sleep. I am really loving that groggy feeling when I wake up (forgot about that) versus just waking up tired and pissed off. 🙂

    Anthiny – thanks for the nice words. OK, seriously, if you haven’t yet; go to the doctor. I waited way too long to do that. The more I didn’t sleep, the more I wasn’t going to sleep. You just lie there ticked off about not sleeping and that’s not restful.
