9:08 PM: who?

While I was watching ANTM tonight, I was surfing blindly with the Stumble button. For some reason, it showed me this image. I think it's a t-shirt, but when I saw it, it made me stop for a second and think about the answer to its question.

And after just a few moments of considering the idea, I feel enormously blessed. So, I thought I'd give you the same opportunity to feel warm and fuzzy. Who loves you?

That's all.

10:08 AM: happy

This is going to be a good day. I can tell already. I'm ready for church and still have some time to sit here and read my hometown newspaper. Not that it's exciting, but it's home. I'm eating Frankenberry cereal, which means it's fall--and the best cereal season ever. Martin is singing for me. The Steelers will be on tv later, and that always makes me happy.

Mom's home from the beach, so that small and inexplicable annoyance in my life is fixed (inexplicable because, well, she doesn't live near me anyway. So, why should it matter?).

I found an article on commas that made me laugh. We are all the same.

12:28 AM: sleep and such

Have you ever actually tried counting sheep? I've had a hard time falling asleep lately for some reason, and the only thing that really seems to work is Nyquil; however, it creates brain fuzz the next morning, regardless of the dosage. Last night when I couldn't sleep, I started wondering if anyone really counts sheep to fall asleep. Have you ever tried it? I decided to give it a shot, but I found that "watching" the sheep jump over the fence gave me a headache. I wasn't positive, but I guessed it was the counting that was the putter-to-sleep, so I switched to cats walking. I figured that would be easier on the eyes of my imagination. Thing is, neither the sheep nor the cats actually helped me fall asleep. Not sure if I'm just the single exception to the sheep-counting sleep success, but it didn't work for me.

I need to say this: way to go, Steelers... way to open the season by pulverizing the Browns. It doesn't get much better than that. At least not for a Steelers fan stuck here in the OH-IO.

I've decided it's time for another media fast. Time to get my focus back. Today I was driving home from the store and I was thinking about wanting to write. I always want to write, but I'm just too stinking distracted. I can't do anything I should do because I'm always distracted by stuff that's easier and more mindless. So, I'm going to do it. Wednesday to Saturday (um, the new shows start next week. ha!), I will be AWOL from the online community. Taking away my internet and television, I am then left with... what? Books... a pen and paper... chores... work... Jesus... all good things I don't seem to have enough time for because my Internet addiction gets in the way.

If you happen to need me, you can either call my cell or e-mail me at work. I have no choice whether to be online at work--it's kind of necessary. I have to watch my e-mail for my freelance work, too, so on the off-chance it's a life-or-death matter, I am reachable. Otherwise, I'll see you on Saturday.

much love!
