sometimes when I wake up my mind is wiped clean from the worries of yesterday - like an open blank canvas where the murky colors of my dreams leave water-colored splotches that fade as I brush my teeth.

then yesterday, and yesterday's yesterday comes trickling back in, like the volume in one of those cars that adjusts for speed - the faster I wash my face and walk out into the living room the quicker my brain seems to come alive.

this morning, though, i woke up with an Oasis song already in my head from yesterday, and the world was already at my beck and call before I touched coffee.  Things I told myself I have to remember -

  • i leave in 12 days for Tokyo
  • how does the wallpaper i was up until 3 am making last night look in the morning?
  • will every song we practice on Rock Band get stuck in my head that way or just the Oasis songs?
  • It's time, far past time, for me to do laundry
  • the dog is limping less, thank god, and she's going to be one of the people I miss a whole lot when I'm gone for a month
  • the dishes are never ending
  • My boyfriend is unhealthily interested in gameshows.  Unhealthily, I tell you.
  • Leaving for Japan doesn't seem real, but it will be.
  • we watch way too much reality TV - TLC, TLC, TLC.
what about you?  how do you wake up?  does it take that first sip of caffeine before your eyes open?

Caffeine is a bonus, but usually my eyelids won't function until I have my first cigarette of the day. It's the best part of waking up, you know.

I'm going to miss you when you're gone! WAH. But Japan! *covets*

As for reality TV, the less said the better. My mother however is completely addicted to What Not to Wear. O_o

See, here's my problem - I HATE waking up, so I trade sleeping time for having a nice wake up at home with caffeine & cigarette.

(and hey, i thought you quit?)

Instead I get my ass up and out of the house, smoke on the way to work, and if I'm out early enough I'm allowed to buy the caffeine.

Oh dear god, Neil had WNTW marathon Fri?Sat? and if I see stacy and clinton again I am SO going to shoot someone.

and yes, my boyfriend is probably more metrosexual than yours ;)

Well, I resolved to quit, but my resolve went up in flames. ;)

WTNTW marathon. Friday. Watched it. Stacy and Clinton. Help me.

But you know what most pisses me off at that show? Those dumbasses who can't figure out how to spend $5000 on a new wardrobe. In New York? Are you kidding me? GTFO! *shakes fist*

Tell me about it - I could spend it all in day one and be asking for a second damn credit card for day two.

Awesome! I'm going to Japan in 12 days too. We should hang out sometime while you're still in Tokyo. :) I'll be in Yokohama.
