|09:56 pm - you don't say, half-asleep self|
It's nice to have the netbook by the bed in case I wake up in the middle of the night and go "OH HAY THERES A THOUGHT" and instead of scribbling down something illegible on a piece of paper that invariably falls off the nightstand anyway, I just type it into a little text file and there you go.
However I still find ways to mess things up marvelously. A recent entry listed a joke setup line and then underneath I swear to god I wrote "...the response should be easy to determine."
So easy, in fact, that I didn't even need to write it down.
WHAT BRILLIANCE COURSES THROUGH THESE NEURONS IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT

Perhaps the text file was TOO NARROW TO CONTAIN IT!1!!
Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night and explain jokes to my husband. He says I'm not even using actual words or anything comprehensible. Just the rhythm of sentences.

Men seldom make passes . . .
...while eating molasses.
Dottie would disapprove.
Maybe you thought that the response would be easy to determine later, but not at that point. So you didn't forget the awesome joke, you were just procrastinating it.
I'm on tenterhooks... WHAT WAS THE SETUP LINE?
Yeah, you should post and we can finish it for you!
a. you should def. post the setup line and see what we can come up with (in our sleep if necessary)
b. I usually have questions, not jokes - as does the boy. Recent 3am queries involved me waking him up to as "but what is gravity? I mean, what's it made of?" and him waking me at a similar point to find out "why far away things look small".
So in your sleep you ponder theoretical physics, and the boy...is Dougal from Father Ted?

I often write myself little lists to remind of things. Monday night, I apparently jotted myself a list in the middle of the night, for morning, so that I would remember the following things: 1) bank deposit 2) cats (to remember to check that the cats had food and water before leaving for work) 3) direct deposit form (to change to new bank account), 4) remind tenant of gas bill amount, and 5) Toes.
TOES. What the fuck, I asked my brain, did I need to remember about toes?!? It just smirked at me.
I still have no idea.
Hey. Maybe you know? And if so, WHY ARE YOU KEEPING IT FROM ME?
