Turns out I'm an intolerant hypocrite. Who knew?

I made a discovery last night...I'm super patient until someone keeps repeating a behavior that is stupid. Of course, I do stupid stuff repetitiously all the time, but it's WAY more annoying when others do it.

The Veracity of Cliches

I recently bought a bottle of miracles. Technically, it's a product called Miracle 2000 and it is a liquid vitamin that you take like a vodka shot. I have to give the product props...I've been taking it for 4 days I really do feel a difference in my energy level (the B12 shot is assisting I'm sure). I've never been able to sustain this sort of happy energy downing vodka shots (vodka happy is fleeting. And very grinnie). That's the upside. The downside is the cliche that anything that is good for you must taste terrible. This stuff tastes like a dirty ass that has been put in a blender with some spinach. I haven't actually HAD dirty ass blended with spinach, but that's the closest flavor profile I can offer. The label proclaims it to be "cherry flavored" and I assume they waved a cherry over the manufacturing plant from a helicopter. There is a minor side effect of neon-hued urine and perspiring a faintly vitamin-y smell.

All that said, I recommend the results. It's the first vitamin I can take that doesn't upset my stomach. Upsets my taste buds yes, but that's fleeting.

Falling sleep.

I heart my extra hour of sleep in the fall AND the fact that it will be light out when I wake up. It's hard to get up and at 'em when it's pitch outside and while you walk your dog, you have that eerie feeling that you're the only person left on the planet (in a less fun way than "Night of the Comet", for anyone who enjoys a little 80's cheese in their movies).

Basic Autumnal goals - fall back into getting adequate sleep. Fall (even if it's a forced fall, or if I have to ask a friend or a Sissi to trip me) into better habits, like getting rid of stuff I don't use and exercising more. Why do people only make resolutions at New Year's? Why not for daylight savings time, when you are getting something you can work with, like an extra hour of sleep???? As WSP might say...Makes sense to me, I must confess.
