It's midnight. The alarm will be going off in less than five hours. I'm wide awake. I lay there in bed for a couple hours with my mind running off on a mess of tangents. Finally, I got up to read some blogs for a while.
Over at Gnat-Bottomed Towers, Aril wondered about "Mayday!" How did a spring day turn into a call for help? Turns out it is from the French 'm'aidez'.
And I wondered why I never wondered about that before.
Midnight is weird, I woke up at that time over the weekend and I could hear in the distance the sound of Karma Chameolon played by Culture Club. It was a wedding party playing old hits. Music has been on my mind ever since!ReplyDelete
It's always darkest just before dawn. I had a sleepless night and my head going off into tangents too.ReplyDelete
It's frustrating when that happens. I watch the clock ticking through the hours thinking that surely I must doze off soon.ReplyDelete
Ah, the wee small hours...but definitely a constructive blog wander.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing that tidbit. Now I know. (and I also wonder why I never wondered about that before)ReplyDelete
I think I've read that before, but it was nice to be reminded!ReplyDelete
