Perhaps it's because with my frenetic pace at work, I have so little of it. Or perhaps I never had enough of it as a child when I was frequently assaulted by on-off near-debilitating attacks of insomnia. Then again, I could simply be a lazy fuck who enjoys my sleep.
My precious sleep...
Whatever the reasons, I take my sleep extremely seriously now and practically plan my entire life around it. Woe betide anyone who interrupts me while I'm going through my regular rounds of REM and non REM cycles - since obviously hell hath no fury like a sleeping gay man. By midnight I'm usually in bed counting sheep and it's near impossible to drag me out then.
Everyone has their own distinctive sleeping patterns ( blame the circadian rhythms ) and I just realized that I generally wake up without prompting only at around 9 ( yeah, I took the day off today! ). Without the armed battalion of clocks that surround me sounding the alarms in the morning, I seriously doubt I'd even make it to work. Even then I always have this insane urge to smash the little buggers into little non-operable pieces before setting them on fire.
Don't get me wrong. I like waking up early. Those extra hours in the morning gives me just enough time to get most things done. But come on, it's just such a sinful pleasure waking up with the sun shining warm on your face - unlike my normal drudge days when I rush off to work before the sun even rises and reach home after it sets. Is it any wonder that most doctors are preternaturally pale?
Still I managed to drag myself out of the bed for a bit of shopping by noon - hey, it's one of the few things that I wake up early for, apart from some dim sum and a naked aroused man. Unfortunately can't sleep the day away... and after all, Charming Calvin has a sadly spartan home that needs some lovely knick knacks to give it that homey lived-in look. Like any good gay man, I made my way to IKEA ( of course that's only till we have places like Habitat ) to furnish his cosy crib.
Then again, I took a quick nap again after I finished my errands.
