I’m a night owl. Sure, I love a good sleep just like anyone else, but I prefer that sleeping to be done during the day. I’m not sure why I like the night so much, but I think it has a lot to do with television shows without interruptions, Taco Bell lines that are short, and the blissful hours of reading a book without someone disturbing me about it being “time for dinner.”

The night people eat their meals when they feel like it, they don’t need a schedule!

And never forget, the lack of traffic. While one can postulate that there is no traffic due to everything being closed, I beg to differ. Taco Bell is open until 3am. Then they reopen at 6am. That’s only a three-hour window of depression until you can be happy again. The internet is also open. Everything that isn’t at Taco Bell can be delivered to my doorstep, so I don’t really need to worry about them being closed.

Why did I tell you all this?! Well, because I got sidetracked on the night owl tangent and had to let it out or I would physically burst open. My new blog series is going to be called Things That Keep Me Awake At Night. I’ll post on this topic once a week, or once a month, it really depends on how much my brain ponders.

A teal/green owl that says

Do actors who develop Alzheimer’s believe that they actually were the characters they played on the screen?

Take for example, Matt Damon. Will he one day actually believe that he lived on Mars all alone and farmed potatoes? Was he really Captain Blondebeard and the fastest man in space? Did he outsmart every U.S. intelligence official and break a lot of arms while doing it? Will Matt believe he was a mathematical genius who also robbed Las Vegas casinos? (He needed some spending money I guess.)

And most of all I wonder this, will he ask everyone if they like apples?!

  1. I’m liking this. I notice that you mention Taco Bell a few times. I’ve never beeb to a Taco Bell but I’ve noticed theres one in Sheffield so I will pay them a visit at the weekend. Things that keep me awake … Facebook and my neighbours radio (he’s deaf in one ear)

  3. Aaah, I was going to say that I wished we had Taco Bell in the UK, you make it sound sooo awesome-then I see someone commented that we do have them in the UK! I did not know this, but sadly, I’ve googled it, and we only have about 7, and they are all at least 3 hours away from me… boooo!! Anyway, I’m always kept up at night too! And I’ve wondered the very same thing about actors as well-great minds! The other night, I was determined I needed to remember the name of a book I read back when I was a teenager, and spent hours googling the description of it, as I couldn’t remember the title or the author, and then wondered why it was so important to me to know, especially in the middle of the night!!

    1. I love it! So glad to know I’m not the only one googling random stuff in the middle of the night- did you ever figure it the title of the book?! I actually did that a few weeks ago- found the book and it sucked. Not sure why my brain wanted to remember it so badly! If you ever get near the Taco Bell you must try it! It’s not authentic Mexican, but it is so delicious that you practically weep while drinking cheese!

  4. So up until this point nothing has kept me up at night except small humans and their unreasonable demands. I think this is possibly because I don’t live anywhere near a Taco Bell? Although now you mention it – that is a very valid question. I shall now be pondering the Matt Damon issue whilst hunting for missing socks for the smallest one at 3am. 😉 Thank you so much for nominating me for #BlogCrush x
