Kind of Zonked

I should stay up all night more often. I have some really interesting thoughts, and everything is hilarious. I've been running on three hours sleep today. I was really tired in the morning, but once I got past noon, it was all good. Sure, my eyes are incredibly blood-shot, and I haven't been very coherent today, but that doesn't matter.

If you ever decide to attempt a feat such as this, be sure and have these vital ingredients for success:
  1. Friends to keep you awake
  2. A plethora of funny movies at your disposal
  3. An imaginative mind to come up with words like, "cantankerous"
  4. A burning desire to see how long you can stay awake
You should really try it sometime. It's quite fun. Actually, what's really the fun part is thinking back on all those incredibly stupid things you said at 4:00 in the morning. I happen to have said something along the lines of, "Cark your parkus." I'm suffering from severe sleep-deprivation syndrome right now so, I'm off to bed.

Amazing!!! You actually posted! One note though: I don't think you were the one that invented "cantankerous" I've heard it many times before you came along... :-)

Poor,poor James...You are obviously very inexperienced at the art of staying up late. You forgot to add sugar, caffiene, or both to your list of must haves! Of course that is if you want to actually succeed in staying up ALL night. I can proudly say that I have gone 60 hours with no sleep. Leslie and I have decided the saddest part of our ordeal was that after about 48 hours of this we could still understand each other but not anybody who was talking in actual English! And yes Cantankerous is a real word. :)
