FanPost

OTFPOTD-01/07/09

So this is what it's like to get up at a decent hour. Can't say I'm a fan.

I really don't have much to say today; just thought I would actually post an OFFTOP at a normal hour for once. My brain doesn't really work all that well on five hours of sleep any more, which kind of sucks. While I know I'm not old by any means, I have started noticing certain things that remind me I'm not a kid (in a chronological sense) any longer either. Needing more sleep to function effectively, joints screaming at me before it starts to rain, constant hip pain, that sort of thing. Also, more frequent (and more intense) hangovers, which is probably for the best. When was the first time you realized your high school self could probably beat the snot out of you?

Also, good gravy that wind yesterday was unpleasant. Trudging across the 520 bridge to Bellevue at 15 MPH with waves crashing over the sides was a blast. I know that sort of thing is par for the course in Seattle this time of year, but after the snow it seems like we deserve a few days of sunshine, or at least boring old drizzle. I know other folks love inclement weather, though; any favorites? Personally, lightning and wind storms scare the bejeezus out of me, but I really enjoy random cloudbursts in 80 degree weather in the summertime.

 

And so forth and so on.
