Twenty hours done, four to go

It's 4am.  I'm pretty sure the last time I saw 4am, I was in school.  Fittingly, I've been continuing with Ivory Tower Blues, though I got a bit of The High Road in when I was relaxing in child's pose.  It felt awesome and I can feel my lower back tightening up so I might be spending a bit more time in that position.  The last four hours have gone by so much slower than the first ten did.  My eyes are heavy and I'm yawning a lot.  It's times like these where I wish I could tolerate caffeine.  However, enough whining.

This hour's mini-challenge isn't up yet so I'll catch up on it later.  In the meantime, let's hope the eyes stay open.


  1. Could you find something that has the same properties as caffeine that you can tolerate, maybe? (I'd offer ideas on what that would be, but I have none. Thinking aloud, I guess.)

    You're doing wonderful, though. I hope you'll be able to stay awake since it sounds like you want to be.

  2. Usually, I use sugar as a substitute but I think part of the problem is how quiet it is. If there was more action going on in my living room, I might be a bit more awake. Or maybe I should switch books - the one I'm reading now is non-fiction and while interesting, it's a bit dry. But I only have 15 pages left!

  3. I thought you were brave doing a 24 hour read-a-thon before, but I had completely forgotten about your problems with caffeine (or at least, hadn't put the two together into a coherent thought).

    Now, I'm just in awe. You so crazy.
