first things first

I'm not a morning person. Never have been. Yet I start a 1st shift rotation tomorrow.

I've got 2 alarm clocks set. The three alarms on my cell phone are set and it's charging right now, so it won't run out of juice. My sandwiches are made and in a bag in the fridge with my sodas. I've got a pot on the stove with water ready to boil for the oatmeal packets sitting in the bowl nearby, with the spoon next to it. The coffee pot has the water and grounds ready, so I
just need to turn that on. My deodorant, brush,
toothbrush and toothpaste are laid out in the
bathroom. My clothes are set aside, so I just have to throw those on. I've got my keys, money, CDs, rent check, gloves, a fresh lighter, a full pack of smokes, and my backpack right next to the door. And my garbage and recyclables are outside the door.

I figure I can be out of bed, dressed, groomed, fed, caffeinated and out the door in 15 minutes, possibly even less, if need be.

Some other non-work-related things about me:

My sister's due to have a baby in less than 2 weeks. I'll be an uncle for the 5th time (this'll be the 4th nephew), which is probably as close to being a father as I'll get.

It's been about a year since I've had a haircut.

I have over 600 CDs, yet I still love to make and listen to tapes.

I'm fascinated by religion, and by the Eastern religions most of all.

Anyway, it's almost bedtime.
