I ain't slept in 8 days, I can go for 8 weeks, ain't nothing to me...

Sunday, February 1, 2009

So my lack of sleep is starting to become somewhat ridiculous. I'm exhausted, and I'm so excited to take a nap I planned one into my schedule! Unfortunately I don't have time until next Tuesday.

I know, I know. I chose to join the swimteam, so therefore I choose to get up at 5 am to go swimming. And, all of this means technically speaking the sleep deprivation is self-inflicted (which provides an interesting question as to whether self-inflicted v. torture device sleep deprivation ramifications are the same?)

Anywho, I digress, the point is.... it's sunday morning. I am up after a 3 hour nap (I hardly feel I can call 3 hours of sleep a night's rest) working on my lesson for Relief Society. It's SUPER exciting. (Dangit... sometimes I really do hate technology because my tone and sarcasm don't translate. What if in 60 years I've become some sort of spiritual giant who's abandoned sarcasm and then my grandchildren don't understand my journal entries when superimposing that personality onto the entries. Highly unlikely you say (the abandoning sarcasm, not my grandchildren lacking understanding) well, you're probably right, but what if?)

Where was I?

Oh yeah, I'm tired. And I'm teaching my relief society about dating today. Joy. But, as my name is Carla Morgan and I often spout the adage "All of life's lessons can be learned from the movies," what would a lesson be without a classic movie quote?

So as Hitch states

Basic Principles - no woman wakes up saying "Geez, I hope I don't get swept off my feet today!" Now, she might say "This is a really bad time for me," or something like "I just need some space," or my personal favorite "I'm really into my career right now." You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? 'Cause she's lying to you, that's why. You understand me? Lying! It's not a bad time for her. She doesn't need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she's really saying is "Uh, get away from me now,"

Or, possibly, "try harder stupid."

Yay for Hitch. How was the lesson?

i think it went well... the guys got out of elder's quorum and just kept asking what we were talking about cause they said they could hear us laughing through the whole lesson
