Trying To Want To Sleep

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Ebert asks the Heavenly Muse to sing on the new Adam Sandler movie. Speaking of movies, here are some movies I have not yet seen: the second and third Matrix movies, the second and third Lord of the Rings movies, at least one of the Godfather trilogy, Thelma and Louise, the Nemesis Star Trek movie, and the second and third episodes of Star Wars.

The unfinished chores rise around me like water from melting polar icecaps. I wasted too much of the weekend. But -- "nothing is finished, that no matter how strong the sense of lost hope, there is always going to be sleep. And then rising, feet on the floor, blinking hard at the light coming in through the blinds. It is not enough, but it is enough for now."
