This week was fun (by popular demand)

While I extended the deadline to vote in the most recent blog poll, it is looking like a landslide victory for "more entries about my boring life."
The public has spoken, so by popular demand, here's a breakdown of the past 72 (or 96?) hours or so of my life.

6:05 AM - Return home from the News Gazette, attempt to sleep.
6:07 AM - Realize I have emails to send. Get out of bed to send emails.
6:49 AM - Look at the clock and realize I have yet to send emails. Curse at facebook.
7:13 AM - Pour myself a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios.

7:16 AM - Eat cereal, and realizing I can not sleep without some form of background noise, stream WGN Radio online.

7:35 AM - As I start to doze off, I dream I am on a life-support machine {{{beep...beep...beep}}} I wake in a panic, only to realize it's just Twitter sending me mobile updates from @news_gazette, @cardinology, and @wgnkathyandjudy
Turn phone to silent.

7:59 AM - The vibrations from my cell keep me awake. I listen to the 8 O'clock news.
8:38 AM - A nightmare about Rod Blagojevich having octuplets awakens me. (see 7:59)
9:45 AM - Finally I get an hour of sleep in. But I've missed the first 45 minutes of Kathy and Judy! Poo!

10:15 AM - Back to the kitchen for a snack, then one more attempt at sleep.
Noonish - Okay,got some decent sleep in, might as well tryto do something with my day.

12:15-2:30 PM - Search craigslist, monster, etc. for new jobs/posts I may have missed. Fill out some apps, send a couple more emails, mess around on facebook/twitter.

3:00 PM - Contemplate a nap.
3:01 PM - Realize there is no chance of me sleeping right now. Curse Mountain Dew.
3:02-4:30 PM - Spend far too much time earning $8.50 on Campusfood.
4:30 PM - Call Mom.
5:00 PM - Finally get to sleep for another hour and some change.
6:30 PM - Shower
6:45 - 9:00 PM - TV, food, etc.
9:00 PM - Head out to Guido's for Danielle's birthday.
10:45 PM - Party moves to 88 Broadway for Open Mic night. Have a beer, couple shots.

12:15 AM - Head to the Silver Bullet at the birthday girl's request where she insists I get a lap dance. (You can touch the strippers down here! Just no boobs or crotch.)

1:00 AM - Silver Bullet closes, head back to 88 to drive some drunk people home.
1:45 AM - Arrive at Perkins for breakfast.
2:37 AM - Drive back to Urbana to drive even more drunkies home.
2:55 AM - Arrive back at the News Gazette to work.
6:00 AM - Leave News Gazette, head home.
6:07 - Noonish - Actually get some sleep!
Noonish - Laterish...? - Get more apps filled out, win another $5.50 in Campusfood Cash (up to $14 now!)
9:00 PM - 2:45 AM (2/18) - Hang out, order Rosati's with Campusfood cash = $3 coupon. Total paid out-of-pocket = $0.02!

3:00 - 6:00 AM - Deliver the papers.
6:00 - 8:50 AM - Volunteer for extra work making 1000 "FanPacks" to be handed out at Illini basketball game.
8:55 AM - Call in to WPGU with the answer to trivia question. Win coffee mug + gift card!
9:00 - 9:15 AM - Finish transcribing Joe Pug interview for Heave. Send to Peters.
9:15 - 10:30 AM - Listen to Kathy and Judy on WGN. First topic: Gangsta names. I join the discussion on the Facebook fan page. My suggestion (K-Dawg and JD Money featuring BadBoy Bertrand and the GN Allstars) gets read on the air. I feel like a rockstar.

10:30 AM - 5:45 PM - The most sleep I get in the past 72 hours.
5:45 PM - 2:15 AM (2/19) Get some more work done online. Enjoy Rosati's leftovers. Watch a few Dawson's Creek episodes with Jenny. Watch some Conan!

2:15 - 2:45 AM - Talk to a drunk Kyle as he returns home from the bars.
2:45 AM - Back to work.
3:00 - 6:00 AM - Deliver papers.
6:10 - 6:30 AM - Write this entry.
6:30 - ??? - Hopefully get some sleep.

Can't say it's been a boring week; lap dances, drunk people, winning radio contests, etc...

One more day of work before the weekend. Pretty excited. Now I just have to get some cash so I can actually enjoy the weekend. And maybe catch up on a little sleep.

OMG! How do you remember this shit? I think you're right, lol.
I answered: Who played the President in Mars Attacks?
I couldn't think of it right away then they were like "here's a couple clues: he played Joker in Batman and was also in About Schmidt."
I must have been the only person listening in the morning lol
