Friday, July 21, 2006


  • It is at least 80 degrees in this room at 11:13 PM, and probably hotter,
  • Going to bed at 4:30 AM and getting up at 8:00 AM on Friday, the 21st day of July, 2006 just doesn't add up to a lot of sleep,
  • Several people have advised the subject of this proclamation that she's getting a bit obsessive about a certain online reference system, and
  • She doesn't have any great ideas for a blog entry tonight anyway, except maybe this one,
--> Ms. Karen Funk Blocher <--
of Tucson, Arizona,

Declares a rare
Early Bedtime
this Friday night,
the aforementioned Friday,
the 21st Day of July, 2006 CE,
and intends to be in bed

by 11:45 PM Friday
instead of 5:00 AM Saturday,
as is her wont.

Accordingly, she extends her

Warmest Greetings
to all her online friends,
Exhorts them
to enjoy themselves in her absence, and
to read her Email tomorrow,
Saturday, the 22nd Day of July, 2006,
and to finally update her Fiction Blog,
even if it is 90 degrees in this room,
and 110 degrees outside.

In the meantime,
She wishes everyone a

Good Night!

In bed: 11:48 PM
Got up: 11:52 AM for the traditional interrupting phone call (wrong number)
emails in "new mail": 81

What a great post. I never get to bed before 2 a.m. and that's only because I have to force myself to go to bed. And then I fall asleep around 3. Almost every night. I feel ya' girlfriend!
