No more late nights...

Well, Dr. Dean said that it was important that I get more rest in order to avoid having more seizures. This simple solution is a bit harder to implement than might seem at first glance. First, I have been accustom over the last year or so to getting about 6-7 hours a sleep per night during the week. Now I am going to try for 8. This leaves me cutting out about 10 hours of stuff per week....My plan is to go to bed at 10 and get up at 6....

So what do I have to cut. Well, it means no more Daily Show at 11 P.M. and no more Colbert Report at 11:30 P.M. No more Countdown With Keith Oberman at 12:00 A.M. No more Missing at 10:00 P.M. and I got to hit the sack right after CSI goes off. Finally, I'll be missing the last hour of WWE: Monday Night Raw.

Solutions... well, I'm definitely going to have to make some adjustments so I can get in the important shows... So, I'm going to try to watch the Daily Show rerun and 1st run Countdown at 8:00 P.M. although I may miss a bit of each, I should definitely be able to catch any of Olbermann's excellent Special Comments, such as this one on Fearmongering or this one on Death of Habeus Corpus. Of course, if I can't watch the show, I can always catch the Special Comments clips on Crooks and Liars.

The most important thing is that I get more sleep. I really don't want any more seizures. This last one beat me up pretty bad. Glasses got smashed up along with my face. Ended up in the hospital for about 3.5 hours getting X-Rays... Not fun at all...

Personally, I think if you cut out Olbermann, that would probably take care of your seizures.

Of course, my son's are probably caused by overexposure to Fox News.

Seriously though, you just need a DVR/Tivo. Not only can you time shift, but Olbermann's show will only take about 40 minutes to watch. (4 minutes if you are watching for substance ;) ).

You are probably right... I don't think my Dr. took into account the content of the shows I watch. If she had, I'm sure she would have put me on a low "trash news" diet... probably be limited to The Weather Channel... not many ways you can spin news like that.

Easy solution: Go to bed at 1:00am and get up at 9:00am. Work from 9:30am-6:30pm. You're still home by 7 and you don't miss any shows. No Problem!

LOL! JesusGreek, you forget that those of us not in the profession of saving souls have to do things like shave and wear neatly pressed clothes each and every day of the week... not just on The Lord's Day!
