Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

I’ve Got Nothing on Day 5

It’s 2:47 in the afternoon on day five of my commitment for 30 posts in 30 days, and I’m sitting here thinking about what an insane commitment this was, and I’m wondering why I like self torture.

So rather than anything even resembling a cohesive thought, I’m going to take the liberty to ramble on for a few minutes about nothing in particular.

Last night I went to dinner with two friends. We didn’t get home until after 11:00 and then I stayed up watching a movie with my husband until 1:00. Yes, that darn alarm clock still started singing at 6:00 this morning and I’m fried. Why is it that I can no longer function on minimal sleep? Maybe I never really could, it’s just my teenage mind made me believe sleep deprivation was a reasonable idea way back in the day.

Is the health care debate making your head spin yet? I’ve found it so difficult to cut through the rhetoric coming from opposing view points to develop a deep understanding of the proposed solution(s). What I have come away with is a tremendous headache and a new understanding of how complex the issue is. Yesterday a friend sent me the link to the 1,018 page Bill. She likes to torture me that way and knows I won’t be able to resist reading through the document since I know she will, and then if we haven’t both read it, how will we ever have an intelligent conversation about anything every again? Just thinking about 1,018 pages of government jargon is making my headache worse.

If my lack of sleep and health care induced head banging isn’t quite doing it for you today (it’s not for me either), there’s always day six…
