Functional Eye Lids.... Amen!

If ya got some, send 'em ovah pronto.

I'm literally sitting at my desk bobbing my head as if I was Rocky Balboa against Clubber Lang. I've already sent three emails that were not only fragments but incomplete with hanging sentences.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Boy do I feel like an incoherent idiot right now. Well, a very heavy eye-lidded bobble head action kine incoherent idiot to be more specific.

I'm going on five hours sleep going into 36+ hours all for wat? Da Baby's first luau next week! I just completed a couple of rush jobs to earn some moo-lah to help cut down on da cost and while it's not making a dent, it's slowly chipping away at it.

Do you know how many times I've edited dis blog entry?? Thank goodness we got an endless supply of coffee and tea around hea. :razz:

How long have you gone without sleep? Do you try and do anything special to avoid da dreaded bob and weave head shake? Just remembered dat Sharper Image (are they still around??) has dis ear plug dat you wear and it senses wen you "dip" then plays a shrilling sound to wake your okole up. Believe it or not it was marketed for those who are on da road a lot. :shock:

I got one das free and you most definitely WILL NOT get trouble for falling asleep at work but you have to be "setup" oddahwise not going work.

First, you put your hands together like you're praying with your elbows on your desk. Get your elbows comfortable and lower your head (forehead) on your clasped hands. Now go to sleep. If anybody tries to wake you up or you slip off your hands waking yourself up all you gotta do is............ say "Amen."

Since religion is such a touchy subject and our First Amendment right, you got your bases covered.

But you'll definitely be out if you snore.... or drool. :lol:

    Twice I stayed up for almost 24 hours. First time was in high school watching movies and chatting with my friends sister at their house. Didn't even like her but we had a lot in common, I guess. Stayed over for a beach outing early the next morning. Decided to pass on the beach outing for some sleep. Second time was at my 10th class reunion. A bunch of us, including my ex-girlfriend, stayed up all night reminiscing about the good old days. Was hoping to rekindle the relationship, but it didn't happen. We have remained close, though.

    Hang in there BL when your luau is all said and done, it will have all been worth it and more...You're still a young'un! You should be able to hang! I certainly can't afford to fall asleep either...Unfortunately, I snore horribly...and the more tired I am, the louder I snore! Aiyah! That's one sure way of getting busted! :)

    HA! Good one.

    Just don't fall asleep on your keyboard. That beeping sound will keep you awake, and the drool may cause problems.

    Watched a kid fall asleep in my lab one hot afternoon on the last day of classes. Slept right through the beeping keyboard and woke up with key indentations on his cheek. Funny!

    The older your body is, the harder it is to go without sleep. Pretty dangerous, too, so no stay driving much.

    Couple of years ago, was working campaigns & basically lived in Starbucks & Zippy's (Sbux open early, all ovah da island, close late; Zippy's - well, da buggahs stay open & stay everywhea!). Trust me, you get immune to the caffeine after a few days of 3-4 hours' sleep - max, a day. Got to where I could drink a trenta iced coffee @ 7:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 4:00 PM, and 9:30 PM and still go to sleep at 3 AM. Sore stomach, though! :-P Anyway, Hau'oli la hanau to Da Baby! :-D

    Wow, I don't think I can go 24 hours. 20 hours and I'm delirious! GO SLEEP!


  7. Ynaku:

    AMEN!

    Yep I've had those long days when we did some changeover work. Work all day to prep, go home eat dinner, try rest but you know cannot cause you all worried lidat so you go back work to get things ready for the changeovers. When that maintenance window opens, start the work. Work until pau. Test. Stick around to make sure everything still work. WHen get trouble, fix em. Sometime takes awhile. Or your partners down the other office having problems, so you hele over. It may be miles away like in an other district but you gotta go cause there's no turning back once we cut out the old stuff. No can splice that wire or reconnect that old equipment cause it's no longer communicating with the other dead one :D

    So yeah, stayed up close to or past the 48 hour marks.

    Hang n dea. Bumbye pau and you can rest. Then agian you get keeds so they going wake you as soon as you fall asleep. Trust me, been there too :lol:

    For years went to bed after watching the Johnny Carson show and got up after about 5 hours sleep. Recently started to hit the sack around 10 PM and up at 5 AM. As one grows older you realize you need more sleep. Am 89 this past June.


  9. M:

    Howzit BL!

    This past Tuesday I got up at 5am and the next time I went to bed was Wednesday 10pm. That's 41 hours being awake.
