Conversations with my best friend about my boyfriend

Before there was Twitter, I had this blog. Okay, maybe it’s more like before I was on Twitter, I had this blog. And I used it for things I would now put on Twitter. Or Facebook. Or Instagram. And now, I am trying to come back here. And occasionally I stumble on one of these ridiculously old posts and giggle internally. And now apparently, I add disclaimers. And fix typos. And change titles to make them more something-friendly. I don’t know there’s a tool that tells me a score and I make the titles longer. Whatever it doesn’t matter. I’ve officially added more to this paragraph than the entirety of the original post. Thanks for being here.  (revised 2020)

Me: My boyfriend was up until 5 am.
Katie: Doing what?!
Me: Playing video games.
Katie: And what time will you wake him up?
Me: Maybe 3.
Katie: That’s very generous of you.
Me: I know.
Me: We’re supposed to go to his Dad’s after the Bears game.
Katie: oh.

And then Brian woke up all on his own…at like 1.

How late do you like to sleep, Blog Friends? Do you stay up late?

  1. You neglected to mention the part of the conversation where you schooled me on RPGs, LARPing, and MMO (or whatever the acronym was for the RPGs on computers…)

  2. I’m a night owl by nature but a morning person out of necessity. This sometimes results in me getting like 3 hours of sleep.

  3. If I had my way I would stay up until 3am and get up at like 10:00am… I love staying up late and having the house to myself but with work I can’t really do that. Don’t get me wrong…. I still try to do it and get up at 6:00 but it seems to make the day not as productive at work.

  4. I was over-the-moon excited because I got to sleep until 10 Saturday. Which happened only because I got a text at 8 saying that our daughter’s 9:30 am soccer game was cancelled due to rain. Score 1 for the parents.

  5. My husband is a musician, so he stays up late on most nights because he’s working. I used to wait up for him, but these days I’m always in bed by 12.

  6. When I was a youngin’ , I worked until 3AM and was up at 10 to go back to work . I also walked to school 3 miles each way, uphill both ways and through 3 feet of snow, least ways that’s what I remember. Anyway no yum up at 6am, and sleeping by 10pm, paradigm shift.

  7. BTW conversations with a Katie can be a bit dangerous.

  8. I haven’t slept until 10am for years. Kids make it impossible! I still stay up way too late.
