Why am I so sleepy?

Last night GG’s band didn’t have a show, so he and I went to see this guy he went to college with. He lives with his girlfriend, who was actually the same major as GG so he knew her, as well. I’d never met them before. They live in Northeast Philly, which I realized I’d never been to before. It is such a strange place when you’re used to the suburbs or even like South Philly or Center City. The Northeast is is just like a kajillion rowhomes, as far as the eye can see. So we brought a bunch of random DVDs to show them. We ended up watching a bunch of Wonder Showzen, then the first few episodes of League of Gentlemen. Another guy GG went to college with came over around 11:00, and we watched a Bill Hicks DVD he brought over. (Sidenote about Bill Hicks: I first heard him on CD and thought he sounded like a surly old man. Then I saw him on DVD and realized he was young and good looking! Of course, this was in the 80s-90s, and he’s dead now. Also, he had a pet raccoon named Pinecone! Pinecone!) The one guy’s girlfriend had to go up to bed. I’d heard beforehand that she, like me, couldn’t stay up late. It’s true, I just can’t stay up for anything anymore. I used to be the last person up at sleepover parties and stuff, always just staying up late. Now I need lots of naps. Anyway, a few minutes into Bill Hicks, I had to take a little nap on GG’s arm. He’d had me chugging Pepsi, but I just couldn’t stay awake anymore. I woke in time to see the end of Bill Hicks’ set, and then sat around while GG and the other guys played with guitars and stuff. By the time we left, it was 2:00 and I was about to die.

This morning I got to sleep in a little, and then GG and I went out to do some errands. We got home and sat down to watch a DVD, and both of us fell asleep before it was over. Then GG put on The Last Starfighter, which I totally slept through. Also, I did laundry. After he left for his show tonight, I, um, fell asleep again. For a few hours. I finally woke up, with the cats snuggled up on either side of me, and realized that if I didn’t at least get up and put on my pajamas, I never would. After I finish writing this, I’m getting right back on the bed and hopefully the kitties will follow.
