Mourning Glory

Can someone tell me how to be a morning person AND a night owl?

…No one?

I think this may actually be impossible. If you come across such an anomaly of a human being (robot?) please put them in touch with me immediately. I’m in trouble over here.

Writing posts at night is just not happening. I used to post everything in the morning before work, and felt great about it. Now I just feel lame.

What happened to my mornings? The gym. Oh, how I love my new gym. The running on cement every morning had turned my knees into gravel–LOUD, CREAKY, PAINFUL gravel. So no, I never made it from my couch all the way to the 5k. However, I am alright with that because instead of my morning runs, Justin and I have been making it to our gym in Andersonville before the sun even hits Clark street. I feel great. One of my goals is to be able to arm wrestle Michelle Obama and not lose in the first 2 seconds. Arm wrestling me is on top of her list of her priorities. Surely.

So even though I am getting in shape and feeling healthy, my blog life is really suffering. I am going to have to move it up a spot on my nightly list of priorities. “Falling asleep on the couch before 9:30 p.m.” will have to move down a notch. 10,000 lame points have just been awarded to me.

So if you have any ideas that would help me that don’t involve methamphetamines, that would be swell.

I have a lot in common with the morning glories that climb the fence near my train. Here is how they look before lunch.

And her they are around dinner time.

On a happier note, my friend Randy just got a job in Chicago and is moving here! He will be a fine addition to this great city. Here he is showing the proper way to smash/eat an oversized burger with way too much grease. Welcome to Chicago!

  1. I just wanted to tell you that I read your blog (yes, all of it) during my dull work day yesterday. Thank you for such amazing writing and such AMAZING photos. You put a smile on my face all day.

    And then I bought a magnet toy.

  2. I want a girl who gets up early.
    I want a girl who stays up late.

  3. A girl with shoes that cut?
    And eyes that burn like cigarettes?
