sleep drink and be merry

it is 7 and I'm thinking of bed just because it seems like the best option. there is nothing online I particularly want to look at and there is nothing on tv I particularly want to look at and if I were to say go pop in a red dwarf dvd I'd really only have the energy for one and a half episodes which seems hardly worth the trouble and what's worse is that once I had myself all comfortably arranged in the livingroom it would be time to unarrange everything and then go to bed.

thus the fact that I'd have to go to bed in about an hour anyway makes it seem like I should just go to bed now.

the one thing to keep in mind is that I do not want to get up terribly early since I teach from 4 to 7 and one needs to be on one's toes thus late into the night (tomorrow at this time, for instance, I will have just finished and will be making my way towards the bus stop for a bus ride that is relatively short when there is no traffic and since rush hour will be over there probably won't be but even so getting to bed before 9 will probably be impossible.

there is always the possibility of a nap tomorrow if I get my class together in time to take one. but I'm not sure I should sleep in the middle of the day I teach as evenings after naps tend to take place in a sort of twilight of consciousness and I think I owe them my full consciousness although I really only get paid for about two-thirds.

the thought of santiago and jackson all curled up next to me sure sounds inviting. if I sit here much longer I'm going to do the dozing off in my chair routine which consists of giving up trying to keep the eyes open but occasionally jerking myself awake once they do close. not terribly restful but it is difficult to convince myself to stand up, head for the bathroom, do my getting ready for bed stuff and then come back. so much easier just to fall. asleep. now.
