Dave!Okay then! I got up at 4:00am yesterday so I could get to work on time... it's now almost 10:00pm a day-and-a-half later... that's 42 hours awake. I might have dozed off a couple times, but it didn't amount to any real sleep. That's tough, because even total insomniacs like myself require rest from time to time.

I never could have made it without the distraction of Twitter to keep me from giving up. Whether it was comparing notes of sleeplessness with @TheMuskrat or joking around about Twitter spam with @AnissaMayhew, it was pretty sweet that I was able to find Twitter peeps out there willing to help me stay awake.

Other than an incident where Jesus appeared to me in a bowl of Apple Jacks cereal, I managed to make it through the 42 sleep-deprived hours with my brain pretty much intact.

I now have 8 hours until I have to pack up my stuff and head back to the airport. I'm hoping a good chunk of that will be spent catching up on sleep, but I'm doubtful.

For reasons I can't even guess, I'm not at all tired.

    If you have any teeth missing the next time I see you then I’ll know why you’re not tired…


    You are a human being, you need it to be on top of your game.

  3. Poppy says:

    Ok, srsly, the last comment seems to not have gone through.

    Please don’t take drugs.
    Please get some sleep.

    That’s the abbreviated version.

  4. martymankins says:

    You found Jesus in your Apple Jacks? I didn’t get so lucky… Jerry Springer was in my Froot Loops.

    Get some sleep. Dave Lake City 3 is coming soon.

  5. sizzle says:

    There’s a point when you’ve been up for so long that you circle back around to awake.

  6. whall says:

    There’s a prevalence of “42” in your post, and you mentioned Jesus. Coincidence?

    I think so.

    Anyway, looks like you picked the wrong week to quit blogathonning.

  7. Have you learned nothing, Grasshopper? Go out, buy a copy of the federal tax code, and begin reading. By page 2 you’ll be gone.

    You’ll also be dreaming about IRS agents giving you wedgies, but hey! You’ll be asleep!
