Not Anymore
Tuesday. Well, again, a lot of sleep last night: to bed at ten, up at six, to breakfast before seven, home before eight, to bed for a nap before nine, getting up again at ten. How many hours is that? Well, it doesn't matter, but it definitely should be enough. They say you need less as you grow older. They say many things, I'm to a point where I don't listen anymore.

Later. Well, what can be said? More naps. A run to the grocery store for two of the small one flask bottles of sake for later consumption, a box of low fat crackers, apples and hummus. Why hummus, I'm not altogether sure, but I get it now rather than cheese and it seems to go with crackers. You get older, you try new things, sometimes you change after a good deal of screaming and kicking.

Not sure why more naps. Why so much sleep? I have another physical coming up in another two weeks, I'll suggest this doesn't seem altogether normal. Being this tired as a cave man out on the veld wouldn't be good when the saber tooths were out and about looking for something other than hummus for dinner. But then that was the way it worked, was it not? It's only recently that old folks actually got old. And tired. And kept a journal.

Later still. OK, we walk to breakfast tomorrow morning and skip the little pain pills with the label that warns you about side effects and feeling tired. Who knows? Lying in bed (after one of my naps) early this evening, listening to a program about questioning your surroundings, I wondered if the domain name was available. Do you see any commercial value in that? No, I don't either. The one's that strike my fancy generally don't have any commercial value, the one that did (have commercial value) was one I registered and used without a thought for resale. So, is available? Not anymore.

Best to question what?

My sanity.
