The Evil Sleep Plot 2

Summer unemployment continues, and it leads to the development of weird sleep habits and theses. This is just one of those theses.

I’ve got a fiendish plot: I’m going to go all the way around the clock with my sleeping habits so that I’m actually waking up at a normal hour when I go back to the show in mid-August.

So far, it’s been working well. I had been stuck at the go to bed at 6am/wake up at 2pm state for a while, but I’ve recently moved up to the go to sleep at 8am/wake up at 4pm cycle.

My dad asked me today if I’d finally caught up on my sleep, and I had to explain to him (after IMing him at 6am my time) that it’s not that I’m not caught up, it’s that I’m getting my 8 hours at entirely bizarre times.

I should really take this opportunity to travel. I wouldn’t have to switch my sleeping habits at all if I went to Australia right now. Of course, I’d have to have money to do that, and a job to have money, and being gainfully employed would put an immediate end to the plot.

The main problems arise when I have to do something during, well, normal waking hours. Like I’m having lunch with Nate tomorrow at 1. This means I have to be up at 11am, which to me is suddenly an ungodly early hour.

It’s another 6 weeks before I have to go back. I wonder if I really will go all the way around the clock so that I’m finally going to bed at 11pm and getting up at 6am, or if I’ll just randomly have to switch.

My money, or what’s left of it, is on the latter. Only time will tell.

    I’ve been meaning to ask this – what the hell kind of talk show takes the ENTIRE summer off?

    And I’ve been on the 4 a.m. – noon sleep pattern for about seven years, now. It’s always worked well for me. When you HAVE to, you can still get up at a reasonable hour.

    This reminds me of the time the Daily kept calling CRC #319 for an entire quarter and thinking that I was Laz. If I had any sort of individuality, this would concern me. Alas.
