I just can't stay awake tonight. I wonder why that is? Could it be because I didn't get any sleep? Actually that's not true - I slept 22 minutes, from 8:58 to 9:20 pm.
I went to leave work this morning and there was a marathon blocking all of the streets around the beach, so I was stuck here at the hotel for a little while when no traffic could get anywhere around here.
You know how those marathons, they usually have volunteers that have tables out there on the side of the street set up with little cups of water? Well it was a little cool for ice cold water today, so I was thinking, it'd be nice to have a table set up with hot chocolate. But you know, make it scalding hot hot chocolate. And you'd have a sign that would say hot chocolate - but you know all those runners, they wouldn't look. So you'd have runner after runner grabbing these cups and splashing them in their faces and then screaming and doubling over in pain. Well I thought it'd be funny, since they seem to think it's funny to mess up the entire morning commuting traffic system of the whole beach 2-3 times every year. Oh well, I guess it's okay 'cause it's on a Sunday morning. The only people that count are those that work Monday-Friday 9-5. If you work third shift and just want to go straight home and take a couple-hour nap right after work you're outta luck.
And then the best part....I stayed around the hotel a little while and had some breakfast from IHOP, I took my time because I had to be somewhere at 10:00 AM so rather than go home I just waited ///interruption -- I'm trying to write this post // and this lady calls about a reservation she already made through Hotwire and how she wants to be sure what she's getting before she books it. She already booked it!!! Aaaaargh!!! "Well, I don't know, I just don't know if I want to book this or not...." ///// so anyway I went through Clearwater and wouldn't you know I got held up by the end of the marathon as they were coming back through around Fort Harrison! What's up with that!?!?
So at 10 AM I go to Domino's where I'm going to start working part-time a little bit here and there (buying a house takes money, and all) because there.... (to be continued)
