Early Morning Ramblings.

With going back to work today after yesterday’s day off I’ve decided that I need a little change of pace to liven things up a little bit. So at lunchtime today I’m planning on going for a walk around downtown instead of my usual mad dash home for lunch and then fighting with traffic to get back on time.

I’m hoping the exercise will wake me up a little bit.

Never the morning person, a fact I pride myself in, I’m working the 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. shift this week and so my butt is dragging already. Sometimes I feel bad for the company I work for, as I’m basically a walking zombie before noon. I wonder if they’re getting their money’s worth. Well, I’m not a zombie, but I’m at my most productive in the afternoon. I work amongst “morning people” that are all chipper and whatnot when they get to work. I occasionally fight the impulse to slap them.

Earl called me “Fuzzy” last night because I haven’t shaved my head since Saturday. For the first time in a number of years I’ve taken a break off from the task. It’s not going to last by any means, but it’s interesting to see what grows and what doesn’t and what color it all turns out to be.

Such an adventurous life.


  1. Hey, Fuzzy.

    I’m actually a morning person (versus a night person)…but I still couldn’t manage working at 7AM. I’m still asleep at that time!

    And that’s the way I like it (of course, I’d rather not be sleeping alone – but that’s a whole other story).

  2. I kind of like the fuzzy look from time to time, especially since mine is now a “sparkly” brown, if you get my drift. But it doesn’t take long for me to go back to being smooth.

    I’m doing a little facial hair experiment this summer, too: no more mustache or “soul patch”, just the goatee, which I’m letting grow long. I’m not sure if I like this or not, but I’m giving it a couple more weeks to see how it turns out!
