It’s 4 o’ Clock In The Morning

March 18, 2013

This is why I don’t go to bed early.

Because I wake up at 3:38 a.m.

I’m trying to make the most of it.

I think it’s working.

This very early Monday morning…I’m grateful for Diet Pepsi, my friend Brandie, HBO and my computer.

I wish I craved water like I crave artificial sweetener and carbonation. We already know I’m perpetually dehydrated. I’m thinking my insides have to be corroding by now.

When I first woke up, I skimmed through the text messages and notifications on my phone. One of the messages mentioned Brandie. She tagged me on Facebook. So I went to my Facebook page and found this…

If you spend any time on Brandie’s blog, you’ll see she has plenty going on in her own life. I don’t know how or why she found the time to think about me. It’s just who she is. I imagine it’s who she’s always been. Not to mention the fact that she’s never forgotten how much I heart Adele.

It’s also kind of ironic Brandie posted that particular Adele quote on my timeline today. It’s so relevant right now. I really needed to read that. At this minute.

After I realized I was not going to fall back asleep, I tried to find something to do. Thanks to a few texts from Maid Marian (there is really no limit to the ways in which I will try to entertain myself), I remembered I had missed the finale of our favorite show. So I got up and watched Girls on HBO. The Game of Thrones preview that aired before the show started – made me happy enough…but this gem…this quote…made freezing my a$$ off on the couch for 30 minutes (I was too lazy to look for pants) seem like no big deal…

“Ok, I love you, so much, like, to the ends of the world and back, so much. But, sometimes, I love you the way that, like, I feel sorry for a monkey. Like, they need so much help, and they’re in such an ugly cage. Know what I mean?” – Shoshanna to Ray

I’m still laughing right now.

Last, but (definitely) not least, I love my laptop. I don’t love that I’m awake. But I knew I’d be fine. I knew I could write.

I’ve got so much new material. I don’t even know where to start.

Well, I do know where to start…I’m just not sure what I want to say.

Are you nervous?

Yeah.

Y-O-U.

Can you please explain this quote in a general context? I just dont get it. Thanks

Laughing. I didn’t even realize you were quoting the quote at first. I was so confused. And that quote might only make sense if you actually watch the show it came from and know more about the girl who said it (and why she said it). Maybe it’s only funny to those of us that watch Girls religiously (Girls the show, not actual girls).
