This and that, Tuesday edition

I'm not feeling so hot today. Last night, after talking to my dad for a little bit, I decided to lay on the couch and read for a bit. It didn't take long for me to nod off. I woke up when rosepurr called at 10. But I only talked to her briefly as I could hardly keep my eyes open. Then I didn't even make it to bed. I resumed my sleeping on the couch until I woke up again at 2 am. I got up, went to bed, and slept straight through the alarm until I had to rush to get to work.

My head hurts. Like rosepurr, I'm cutting back on the caffeine. (Misery loves company, or something like that.) That may be contributing a bit to the headache and sleepiness, but my general feeling, along with head congestion, suggestions the onslaught of crud.

Work's been busy today. I'm trying to wrap up a bunch of stuff. None of it's pressing except for my own needs.

I've been trying to catch up with friends and family on the phone and it's been good to reconnect.

I'm really saddened by George Carlin's passing. As I read on another blog this morning, "I'm running out of personal heroes.... Warren Zevon, Hunter Thompson and now George Carlin." What we're losing is the baby boomers and 60's radical thinkers who never sold out and we're stuck with the others, like some kind of Hippie Rapture.

Anyway, here's a wonderful remembrance from Esquire magazine's website. Every month they post a column called "What I've Learned" featuring a prominent person telling life lessons. In 2001, George did one.

"Hippie Rapture" has now been added to my list of favorite phrases.

I admit I pleased myself with that one. :)

I have not been cutting back so much that I get headaches. It's best to back off slowly. I am a little tired, though.

I had a half-caff/half-decaf this morning, and a half cup of regular later in the morning. Water at lunch and this afternoon.
