Is this sad, or is it just me?

So ever since I figured out that it was Tuesday, I have been looking forward to 10 PM for one reason...it's time for the 10 Spot on MTV, and tonight that means a new episode of the Real World: Austin! What is going on with Johanna and Wes? And why is Wes so creepy? And why do those crazy kids drink so much? I have to find out, so I have to watch.

However, I am getting Old. I can't rely on my own body just to keep me awake in front of the TV until 10:00 rolls around. You know what happens? Sleep happens. I am watching random TV, la, la, la, and suddenly it is midnight, and I am waking up on the couch and I have missed all the TV I wanted to see. And that Andy Milonakis Show is on, and it's loud and annoying, so it isn't peaceful noises to which I wake up. It's Andy Milonakis. And there's a reason I don't watch that show.

So I came up with a Plan. My plan was that I would surf the Net for the two hours between When I Got Home from School and When the 10 Spot Comes On. Now, surfing the Net used to be cool back when the Net was cool. Now, it's reserved for Bloggers (wait, that's me), people who are addicted to Internet Games (yes, that's me too), people who have IIFs all over the country (ummm...me), and people who are getting so old that their bodies will go to sleep at 8:00 if given the chance so they have to be tricked into staying awake until 10:00 to watch a show that they might end up sleeping through anyway (and yet again, me).

Please note that some Bloggers who are addicted to Internet Games and have IIFs all over the country are still cool. It's when you cross that line into having to trick yourself into staying awake that I am sorry to say that you might be heading into Loser-ville. After all, it is rarely cool to fall asleep on the couch at 8:00 and awake four hours later in a puddle of drool with Andy Milonakis in the background. I'm just saying. However, I seem to be alone here in Loser-ville, which means that you are all safe elsewhere...
