Ever have one of those days where you feel like you’re in a bit of a mental fog that you can’t seem to shake loose? I’m having one of those days. It would’ve been a good day to stay in bed and just sleep it off and it’s probably lack of sleep that caused it in the first place. Late Saturday night everyone else had gone to bed so I had some free time in front of the TV set to fire up my PS2 and get a little further in the excellent hack n’ slash platformer known as God of War. Well I got pretty wrapped up in it and managed to finally finish the game at which point I looked up at the clock and realized, to my horror, that it was quarter to 4 in the morning. I hadn’t intended to stay up till the wee hours of the morning playing video games, but apparently my ADD had other plans for me that night.
I headed off to bed and slept until almost noon as a result and I didn’t seem to be any worse for wear for most of Sunday though, now that I think back on it, I completely forgot to call my Dad and wish him a Happy Father’s Day. Shit. Hopefully he’s not too upset with me about that. We did send him along a Father’s Day gift from his Wish List and it did arrive a few days early so it’s not like I completely forgot, but I’m sure he would’ve appreciated a phone call just the same.
The sad part is it’s not like I didn’t have plenty of reason to remember the day. I’m a dad myself and Courtney handed me my card and gift shortly after I crawled out of bed. (I’m also getting something off my wish list: The long lusted for Psychonauts which I was afraid I’d never get as it didn’t sell all that well and most stores haven’t had copies in for quite awhile. ) then there’s my father-in-law who got lots of cards from his various children at one point during the day including a Spongebob neck tie and a new fishing hat. So I really don’t have a good excuse for not remembering to call my dad. I’ll have to give him a ring today and apologize.
Anyway, today I’ve got the whole mental fog thing going and it’s making the work day drag on like a bad opera or an Ann Coulter book. So far not even large amounts of coffee/diet cola have been able to dent the fog in my head, but that hasn’t stopped me from drinking more. Good thing that stuff isn’t alcoholic. Don’t know if I’ll get much blog writing done today as knocking this entry out was a major effort in and of itself.
