I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!~White Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland
I was off today, and I had plans. I was going to wash my car, get it inspected and renew my tags (they expire this month), go shopping for some items that I needed (and wanted), then call some friends to go out for happy hour and dinner. Of course, since I knew that I'd be off today, I was up all night, hung out with some friends who were off this week, and made some calls to the other side of the world. I didn't go to bed til about five this morning. But I had set up my alarm clock to wake me up in a few hours. I figured I'd catch up on my sleep by getting a nap in the afternoon.
While waiting for breakfast to be done this morning, I turned on the t.v. and channel surfed. That was a mistake. I stumbled on Disney Channel showing Alice in Wonderland, a classic! So, of course, I started watching it. When that was over, the Princess Diaries sequel was on. Well, I didn't see that one, and I was mildly curious, so I figured, eh, why not? And by the time that was over, I had passed out on the sofa. When I woke up, it was after six in the evening. I was late, very, very late. The tags office was closed and I was probably going to miss happy hour, but I figured I still had time to wash my car and do the shopping. Then the promo came on saying the Peter Pan sequel was coming in an hour. Curse you, Disney! Tempting me with your movies! So naturally, I skipped the shopping and dinner but got to wash the car instead; and I got it done just in time to catch the movie.
Well, at least the car is clean. Tomorrow, I'll do my tags during lunch and maybe some shopping after work; at least that's the plan. I'll keep in mind to avoid the tv tomorrow.
