Late Night Netflix

In college, I never drunk dialed anyone.  I’ve never intentionally or knowingly imbibed alcohol, that I can recall.*  But I’ve tired called someone.  And that can be worse.  Because you have no good reason for leaving a stupid message except that you are up much too late and you need to go to sleep.  But that was college.  I don’t call people when I’m tired now.  I do something else.

I tired order Netflix.  I go into my Netflix account, order DVDs, and then I forget about them and go back to sleep.  Which is how I came to recently watchI feel as though I need to apologize to you and to Patrick Dempsey, to be honest, because he would probably like this one to be put somewhere far, far away.

I don’t remember why I ordered this one.  I went through a brief Robert Downey Jr. 80’s phase a month ago, at midnight, but I don’t think I went through a Patrick Dempsey 1980’s phase.

And of course I watched it.  I mean, I did order it.  It’s the least I could do.  I think I need more sleep.

Anyone else order stupid things when you should really just go to sleep?

*I believe that pretty much covers me.

    OMG I work night shift. There’s not much I HAVEN’T done tired, although my biggest weakness seems to be kindle romances. There’s a whole ton of books on my kindle with nekked men on the cover, and I don’t have a clear memory of how they got there. Wasn’t really a problem till my husband got a kindle Fire. Since we share the same account, he gets to see EVERYTHING in my stacks. In color. Oops. Some of it makes Loverboy up there look highbrow.

    Wow, I haven’t seen Loverboy since I was a little girl! I’m definitely adding this to my Blockbuster @Home queue even though Dempsey may find it odd that I’m making this decision while I’m wide-awake. I know how you feel, livrancourt, I work late nights in one of DISH’s call centers so when most people have already started their day, I’m still sleeping until my normal rising hour of 1 PM. For some reason my family and friends still call and text my sleepy head and me before noon, and I actually answer. While still sleeping I’ve had several conversations that I don’t remember, and often times I make commitments through text that I don’t know about!
