It is bedtime (and has been for hours), and yet here I sit on the floor, being silly with my phone.
To be fair, I am not wasting away myself or my mental capacity – quite the opposite.
I have been practicing and studying Italian.
I’m one of the people on this planet who genuinely aim to use the genius cell phone technology to improve myself, and not simply to send a million bad photos to semi-close friends all day (and night) long.
So, rather than go to bed, I first sat listening to my latest audiobook (with the excuse that I was waiting for photos to load to my computer from my camera, but I sat long after the computer was already put away), then finally showered when my phone died; returned to my phone for some Italian practice and a jumpstart back into the game for my Duolingo learning league of the week; and then finally hit the point of declaring a need to go to bed, and so am placing my last few open-eyes moments here, writing this.
Op!… looks like we’ve lost one: only the right eye is fully open anymore… and the left is sagging below halfway…
Oop!… the right one just did a temporary slip, and they both closed briefly.
Now it is really time to get to bed, and not just to sit on the floor at the end of it, wearing my jumbo-knit (hand-made by yours truly) green blanket like a heavy Mardi Gras parade cape, considering whether I want to put on a sweater…
Oh, the silliness of sleepiness… 😛
(Or, better yet: Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!) ❤
