What the hell am I doing awake? Ok, I understand that during the week, Week of Fun mind you, I was only getting a little bit of sleep each night. What could I do? Fun was being had, and I had to be there. But when the weekend entered Iíve been unable to sleep for more than five hours (if that). Iím so dang tired. I would assume that something is on my mind. Usually when I have this much trouble I have something bouncing around in there, but Iím unable to focus on whatever it is. Crap. Hopefully I can pull off the normal fall asleep while having a baseball game on the television.

Two days ago I sat through a 10 hour poker game. Congrats to Paul for winning the big potÖ.$200. Not to shabby if you ask me. The best part is the last hand came down to two flushes (king high and 10 high) in a fabulous game of Texas Holdum (if you have ever watched the World Series of Poker on ESPN you will know what game Iím talking about).

Iím in the midst of my Week of Fun. This week has been non-stop fun and excitement. Whew.

I participated in Madden. 49 rounds of excruciating pain. This is for all you football freaks out thereÖ..My 2 starting wide receivers are Antwaan Randle-El and Az-Zahir Hakim. Iím in some trouble.

See, the non-football fans who just read that just thought ďI donít know who those guys are. This is a really stoopud post.Ē See thatís why itís funnyÖ..I barely know who they are either.

I attended a rock show this past week. At this show I was given the best compliment in the past two months. A girl came up to my friend and told him he is cute. He said hello and thanks. She asked if he had a girlfriend, and he turned to me and said, no weíre together (heís straight and married). I went along with it. The girl then stops us and then says, ďYou guys arenít gay.Ē

Actually later this week I was told I have a nice smile. She didnít want to hear about my story of the best compliment in the past 2 weeks is Iím not gay.

There are 2 kids outside holding sticks. They are beating a stop sign. When they grow bored of that they beat each othersí sticks. Then they go back to beating the stop sign. How cute.

1st thing this morning...I grab my dresser drawer, the front falls off in my hands. I stand there holding the front piece hanging inbetween two fingers and I use all of my will power not to fall back into bed. Here comes the day!

Iím looking for a home. There is a sense that one feels when they have a home. The time I was in college Champaign had moments, but my apartment never really felt like the place I could call a home. The Cradle was close, but that was more of a house that we didnít give a crap about (aka throwing things at people so that they could hit them with a bat, smashing a guitar on the roofÖ.i could go onÖ.). Well, Iíll be moving in the next few weeks to yet another apartment. 3 in 3 years. I was stooping on my back porch and I was trying to figure out why for the last couple of years Iíve felt tense or on edge and I was trying to come up with times where I was comfortable. Completely comfortable, and I havenít felt that at my home. Since I would see my house/apt as a place I need to feel comfortable (a place where I can block out the noise of the city and just be) Iíve felt more tense than I have the last couple of years. Iím not saying I havenít felt comfortable ever during those times. There have been moments, shared with certain people I have never felt more comfortable, but itís always been fleeting. I donít know if it is the city of Chicago that makes me feel this, but I have always look forward to moving. Maybe a new start, a new place to recreate myself. Iím not quite sure. All I know is I better find me some boxes because Iíve amassed even more stuff than the last place I was at.

There has been more and more talk of a road trip. I should save and invest in one of those.

I donít really view myself as a lucky person. In most aspects of my life I would say Iím quite unlucky. Like the time I dislocated my shoulder by hitting a wall. Some would say Iím just fragile; I would say Iím unlucky. But this past weekend I definitely was lucky. Why would I say this? Because I have a 5 foot inflatable monkey currently sitting at my dining room table.

I almost quit my job on Sat. and joined the crew of one of the boats at Navy Pier. Then I would be a pirate sailing the seven seas. Watch the fuck out.

But instead Iím back here typing away for all of you. Thatís why Iím not a pirate right now, for you. Remember that.

The monkey freaked me out Sunday morning right after I woke up.
