State of Mind

What do you call the phenomenon where you are tired but for some reason you stay up late and watch episodes of Lost downloaded for $1.99 from Apple.com and then peruse the web for another hour beyond that. I wouldn't call it insomnia, maybe hysteria? No that isn't right either, at least according to wikipedia.org. How about insanity, meaning behavior influenced by mental instability. That could work. Or stupidity-as in lacking intelligence as opposed to being ignorant or ill educated. I don't like that one either.

Ooo,ooo, I found it. Addiction: a recurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences to the individuals health, mental state or social life.

Yep, that's it. Hi, my name is Jeanna and I am in internet addict. Hello Jeanna!

Next thing you know I am going to have to take a sledge hammer to my laptop to rid myself of the terrible chains that are dragging me down. I think I would rather hide in my closet and secretly surf the internet for websites and blogs, as long as I can access my neighbor's WiFi.

It is 1:13 a.m. and I would prefer not to be held responsible for what I say, but at 1:17 I am hitting the hay. Nighty night.

Welcome to Whacko World! I do that all the time. It's sort of an avoidance technique. If I don't go to bed and I just keep filling the night with other stuff to do, then the morning won't roll around and I won't have to start another crazy, chaotic day. It never works, the sun always rises and I'm stuck with blood-shot eyes, nerves like a saltine cracker and nothing productive to show for my time. Hope you find some time for a nap!

I've always wondered how people could stay up that late and actually get something done. Even if it's at the computer, I can doze off. Maybe that's because I work on the computer all day. Oh, congratulations on your weight lose.
