not for the insomniacs

I didn't sleep well last night. In a good way. I saw it coming, when it came it sucked, but I deserved it, I think. But it was because of something good.

See, back then in my senior year of high school, I always put my alarm to go off at midnight. Reason: I want to watch Newsradio. At that time, between all the other comedy series shown at midnight in Indonesia (including later, The Ellen Show, Murphy Brown, but not Friends. Friends was shown Sunday afternoon.), I connected the best with Newsradio.

The only problem was, after waking up for thirty minutes, laughing, most of the times out loud, I could not go back to sleep immediately. Adrenaline rush? Endorphin drunk? Happiness high? I think a combination between those three. Sometimes I'd lay in front of the TV for 2 hours not going back to sleep (but of course you have to know that at that time, I went to bed like 8 at night, and fell asleep no later than 9).

Learning from that, I always carefully schedule my watching comedy series schedule, so that it won't interrupt my sleeping pattern.

I succeeded to do all that until last night, when I have The Office season 5 DVDs in hand and deliberately decided that I could not wait any longer to know the story between Jim and Pam before I will finally see the grand wedding (Oh my God! Wikipedia editors already changed Pam's last name to Halpert!). So I prepared my dinner, sat on the couch, and started the first double episode. And then the next one. And the next one. And one. And before I knew it, I was drawn directly into putting the next next and next discs and started a marathon.

The marathon lasted until a wee bit after midnight. Fun times.
