|04:45 pm - Coffee deprivation|
Guess what this is? It's one of those "I have 30 minutes left at work and 30 seconds of actual work to fill it" posts. It's really not going well because I'm trying a little experiment the week where I'm not consuming caffeine after noon, and as a result I'm crashing about three hours earlier than normal.
Yesterday I checked out a possible living space for next year, but whether it will actually be available or not is still in question. Our tenor was sick, so Offbeat did not sing on State Street. I hope nobody showed up but I rather doubt that they did, thanks to the weather. Snow. In may. It's not right.
I also saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for a second time, and being ready for the differences made it much, much more enjoyable. Someone with more of a life than me would probably not have as many issues with the adaptation as I did, and I held my complaints at bay in my initial review since I knew the movie would be better the second time. It was, so if you wanted to enjoy the movie the first time but didn't, seeing it again might help. And since we're on the subject, here's the Beeblebrox for President Campaign Video.
I'm very tired. I should probably learn to consume less caffeine, because cutting myself off has really wiped me out. This must be why I'm so slothful on weekends.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear from my brother about his roommate.
Rather than caffeine or soda, drink lots and lots and lots of water. You'll pee more, but staying optimally hydrated actually reduces tiredness. That's why they tell you to down 8 glasses a day.
Thanks for the tip. I do drink a lot of water, and it probably helps, but not having that constant stream of caffeine affects me. For the moment, anyway.
You getting lots of carbs and stuff too?
OH! And if you get a minute, pop by Jamba Juice and get something with an energy burst in it. They never fail to wake me right the fuck up. And even if it doesn't wake you up, smoothies are yummy and the fruit is good for you :)
Carbs and fruit, check. Actually, I eat a better diet than anybody probably thinks I do, especially right now since I'm on a baked-potato-topped-with-vegetables kick. Lotsa tomato, avocado, and garlic. Spinach too, though not on the spuds.
I love Jamba Juice, but what I need is just to get used to less caffeine on a daily basis. This is withdrawal in its earliest stages.
Those are just friggin' cool.
Hey, are you gonna see Jonah before Saturday? Find out for me if he has a VCR.
Dat whus da gwatest swide show ewah!
Sure was, Filbert. Sure was.
Maybe it's just me, but it reminds me of a Creed music video. You know, with that guy that everyone loves to hate (oh, and how I love to hate him), Scott 'Dumbface'
McAsshole 'Stapp Throat'.
I 'member that one. They make a good point, though. All our problems would be gone if we'd all just voted for the guy with the longest hair. All our current problems, anyway. I bet we'd still have problems, but they'd be different ones.

Thanks for the campaign video link. I really enjoy the new movie Zaphod, despite his western accent. Now why didn't I think of getting a Beeblebrox '04 bumper sticker last election?
You probably don't read gooingoogoo
but I thought you might find the latest album
he linked to interesting. I rather liked the acapella versions of Speed Racer
I ordered from Homestar today. Our stuff should ship Wednesday and be here three to seven days after that. You currently owe me seventy-five thousand dollars.
Cool. I'm gonna have to write you a check.
