Rebel Without A Clue

So. I woke up crabby today.

VERY crabby.

Part of it is that I woke up with a really bad headache. And part of it is that I even woke up at all.

Now, you KNOW how much we love our DVDs here. We have hundreds of DVDs and most of them we have watched multiple times. So, perhaps staying up late last night to watch a movie that we’ve seen — let’s be honest, here — probably 50 times (!!) was not the smartest thing we’ve ever done.

But it was Hot Fuzz. And if you’re going to stay up overly late to watch a movie, you have to admit, that’s a good choice. So we stayed up and had popcorn and laughed.

And I woke up this morning very tired and crabby. Part of the crabby comes from the tired. And part of it is because I am insulted.

Seriously. When did I get to be such a big pansy? “I stayed up late! OOOH! OOOH! Look! Look how LATE it was!”


What the heck HAPPENED to me? What have I become? I used to be a night owl. I did my best work late at night, I had energy and liked being up. Now look at me. I have a headache. I’m dragging my arse. I’m bitching and moaning and complaining.

What a big PANSY.

I know I should not have stayed up so late, but we were having fun. And it never USED to be a problem. I USED to be able to stay up late and function on little sleep and throw caution to the wind.

So, this is what it’s like to be a responsible adult. Is THIS how it’s going to be? Is it? Because I tell you, I am not liking it ONE. BIT. I sound like somebody’s PARENT.


I’m going to go do some cartwheels in the yard.

AFTER a nap, of course.

  1. *yawn* Sorry, did you say something? 🙂

    I saw Hot Fuzz for the first time last month and I can’t believe I waited so long to see it. It is so funny!

    Being tired and dragging one’s arse all day are how we practice for (old age) parenthood.

  2. Since we are speaking of old age (not that I will admit to it) try getting up at six A.M. do the puzzles, read the newspaper and get ready for the great outdoors. More raking of the lawns and flower beds then on to the pruning of the shrubs.Get lunch and more pruning of shrubs.Had a shower and then off to an appointment with Dev our financial adviser at four P.M. Home for supper then tidy up the kitchen and off for my 30 minute walk. Tonight I am dragging my butt to the computer and I will chill out for the rest of the night. Now “haze” I am tired and dragging my arse but this is not practice, it is REAL LIFE for some of us. The muscles and bones are creaking and moaning as I lift my little fingers just to type this note. A little bit of wine may make me feel a lot better. Excuse me while I try that and see if it helps.
    Parenthood toughens you up for the later years.

  3. I hear ya sister! After I write this little ditty I gotta go get ready for bed…lol…used to be I was just getting rarin’ to come night fall…now my husband can barely keep me awake.

    We used to go to the late show because that was cool….now the early show. Used to go out for the evening at 10 or 11 now it is home by 10 or 11. Instead of getting together with friends…we opt out because we need to get a good night’s sleep and go for coffee in the afernoon instead!

    I love the night time and I miss it!

  4. Oh ya! I loved Hot Fuzz too but Shaun of the Dead is even better 🙂 Check it out if you haven’t seen it!
