I've been so tired lately that I've slept through my alarm twice in the past few weeks. Not just "Oops, my alarm went off three minutes ago and I just realized it." More like "Oops my alarm went off 30 minutes ago and I just realized it."
Luckily, I can get ready and be presentable in a jiffy.
It would be easy to blame the tiredness on Peanut. I've had a handful of nights where I've slept completely through the night in the past 10 months. Lately, she's even been getting up twice to eat in the middle of the night.
It also would be easy to blame my early start time and 35 minute commute to work.
While both contribute to it, I don't do myself any favors by staying up way to late, mostly spending time with my guilty pleasures.
We all have them and I don't think mine are particularly embarrassing but it's not exactly like I'm proud of them. But I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours. And I promise not to judge if you don't judge me.
Here's mine in no particular order:
- Vampire books specifically Twilight and the Sookie Stackhouse series. High-brow they are not, but they are engaging reads. I'm actually reading the Twilight series for the second time since Thanksgiving. Once I'm done with that (I'm on the fourth book) I'm going to move on to the latest Sookie Stackhouse book that came out last week. They are the books that the HBO series "True Blood" is based on. I don't know what it is about Vampire books. I'm not usually into fantasy books but I think it's just an easy get away for me. I stay up way too late reading and before I know it, it's 11 a.m. and I have to get up in five and half hours with the chance of getting up twice in between.
- "My Boys" on TBS. If you haven't seen it, think of a Tom Boy "Sex in the City" without the fashion, not nearly as much sex, guys as friends and not as cool. It's simple and not always that funny but I've watched it since the first season and can't stop. When it is funny, it's really funny but that happens only once an episode. Maybe. It's on at 10:30 p.m. Tuesdays, pushing my bedtime to 11 p.m.
- Real Housewives of wherever Bravo has decided to find the cattiness women possible. It's like watching a train wreck. There is nothing like a bunch of women who have more money than sense shop, complain about how tough their lives are and stab each other in the back. It's fabulously bad. Even the husband likes to watch it with me although he wouldn't admit it publicly. (Sorry, honey). It's on at the same time as "My Boys" but the seasons don't always overlap.
So there's mine. What are yous?
