must. stay. awake.

It's almost 2am and I am still awake! My plan is going according to, eh, plan! (Sorry folks, words are apparently not my strong suit this late at night)

See, our flight leaves tomorrow, er, TODAY at 2:35pm. And since it's an overnight flight my plan is make myself so damn tired that I have no choice but to sleep on during the bulk of it. I think this is a brilliant idea. Jparks does not agree. He thinks I'll be tired and cranky and not able to fall asleep. He has not met my new best friend forever, Mr. Benadryl. My new friend is really good at knocking me out. And if that doesn't work, I'll have jparks read to me from one of his new Dungeons and Dragons books. The ten hour flight will fly by. (fly, flight. dude, at 2am I am cracking myself up)

I am mostly packed right now, with only toiletries and power cords for various electronic gadgets to toss into a bag in the morning. I have my airplane books picked out (in case I really can't sleep): The Audacity Of Hope and In The Woods. I have dvd's queued up for when I just can't read another word (good, fluffy dvds too. The first and second season of Beverly Hills, 90210. I'm kicking it old skool). Ireland, here I come. Lock up your whiskey and beer. And potatoes. mmm, potatoes.

I am ready for this damn vacation to start.

(On a side note, did you guys know today, er, yesterday was Monday. I did not. Seriously. I took today off to finish packing and totally forgot that other people had to work. I didn't realize that it was an actual work day until just a few minutes ago, even though I talked to some friends while they were at work. Am so smart.)

((Also, I went to see these shoes in person and the store was sold out of them in my size. Bitches. I could order them online, but they were on sale in the store and I now feel kinda dumb paying full price. le sigh))


  1. i tried that once, before my trip to london for the marathon. didn't work, and i ended up being awake for like 36 hours by the time i finally got there. sucked. hope you can sleep!

  2. Have a great trip! I hope you are able to sleep on the plane. Are you going to upload a photo of your flight-to-Ireland outfit?

  3. That was a sign -- you do NOT need the shoes.

    Have fun in Ireland! Hope those power cords you are packing for your electronic gadgets work over there! Don't they do things funny across the pond?

  4. Have a great time! Can't wait to see the pictures and hear the tales.

  5. Have a great trip! I want to know how the staying up thing turned out.

  6. Have a great trip and take lots of pictures! Wish I was going, too, I've always wanted to see ireland! And I just now realized that you are already gone, ah well.
