how it happened

so I did start to read through my dissertation and although I wasn't planning on it I also wrote a few things to explain this and that and by the time I was a quarter of the way through it I was exhausted and so decided that with the revisions that was enough for one day and was going to do something like work on my blog or something but then I fell asleep.

I can't believe how easy it is to fall asleep anywhere--anywhere!--once you reach a certain age. I can sleep bolt upright in my computer chair which doesn't even have padding or a place to put your head. I'll just let my head dangle on top of my neck when I'm in there. I've slept in that chair for hours. I just had a four-hour nap in the living room chair, where I had moved to be able to put my feet up on our little square coffee table. no more of this craving to be horizontal before you'll sleep. I don't feel that even slightly these days. I think I should go back to traveling coach on amtrak since it is apparent that I can now easily sleep in a space designed for one sitting body, and those spaces are actually designed to be able to sleep in.

well so. I guess I'll have a bowl of cereal and see if I need anything more than that to eat this evening. it's almost bedtime, after all.

sleep is very very nice, it's true. I could do with needing less of it though. this involuntary napping takes a lot of time out of my life--I wonder if I get it back at the end because I'm so well-rested?

I wonder if that's a guy thing
I remember my dad falling asleep all over the place. My mom, not so much so. I'm extremely fussy about being comfortable but I'll have to get back to you about this in 10 years or so :)

Re: I wonder if that's a guy thing
yeah I can't tell if it's testosterone- or age-induced or both. it may be other meds-induced as well, but when I was on psychiatric drugs when I was younger I still had to seek out a bed in the face of overwhelming drowsiness. none of this sleeping with my feet on the floor.

I probably snore with my mouth wide open too. no one here but the cats to let me know about that. sandy doesn't witness many of these daytime naps.
