Epiphany!

Ok--I figured out why lately I've not been able to sleep at night. It's because my body knows something that my brain didn't figure out until just a few moments ago. Obviously, the reason I can't sleep during normal hours is that very soon I'll be working a new job, and of course I'll be working the swing shift--8pm until 4am--every night, and my sleep cycle is preparing me for the changeover from the years of office hours/being an unemployed bum to working the Michelob shift.

Mystery solved.

In the meantime, I have to try to sleep somewhat normal hours for the next few days so that I'm bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for school every morning until I leave the nest.

As far as tomorrow goes, I'm really looking forward to the NCAA Final. I picked Illinois to go all the way on my bracket, but now that it's down to it, I find myself kind of hoping that Carolina gets the victory. I'm fickle I guess. I have friends who went to both places, but I've liked Carolina for a long time. I just didn't think they'd make it this far.

I'll probably go over to the Palms after school and watch the game. There's a very very miniscule chance that I could retire the Ghetto Sled tomorrow, so I'm gonna give it a try. It seems that the Palms is giving away a new 2005 Mustang tomorrow at 6pm, and I'm going to be there for the drawing. Basically, all through the month of March, they were giving away entry tickets to anyone who scored a blackjack. Well, my crazy-assed friend Angy was there a couple weeks back being the ringleader of the circus that encompasses her wherever she goes, and managed to have everyone she came in contact with give her their entry slips. She then passed them along to me, so I've been filling them out for the past few weeks and stuffing the ballot box.

Wish me luck! By this time next week I could be cruising around town like Steve McQueen. All I need is a fast machine.
