Nap Drunk

October 11, 2012 · 18 comments

I. Can’t. Stop.

I’m going to turn into a half-peanut-half-candy-corn. I have a dish of them in my living room, and every time I have company over, I may as well be tipping the dish into my mouth. I can’t stop refilling the dish. Somebody needs to do something about this.

I have become that person. I actually prefer waking up at 5:30 a.m. to get a run in before work. I keep talking about how I used to roll my eyes/scoff/laugh at the people who said “It’s just so peaceful,” “I love getting it out of the way first thing,” and “I have more energy during the day!” But now I’m that person.

Some mornings, I pop outta bed ready to rock and roll. And I get excited about it.

Except for the whole having more energy during the day thing. That’s currently a little touch and go, as I almost passed out at work on Tuesday. I plopped into bed at approximately 4:50 after work, and at 6:40, I barely woke up for rehearsal. There onstage was a nice zombie vegetable Alyssa staring into space, clad in sweats, glasses and bedhead. I was a real treat.


I was nap drunk. Yes, that’s a thing.

Meeeeh, at least I could say I ran at 5:30 that morning. 2 miles plus the daily fitmixer boot camp workout. Early productivity > evening brainpower? No? Not so much?

It’s fine. I plan to be back on my A-game for tonight’s rehearsal so I can impress everyone with my skills in focus and productivity.

I completely know what you mean, honestly, where do people get the idea that early morning workouts give you more energy? cleary we must not be doing the same workouts!
There’s nights i’m in bed by 8:30pm!! I’m in college, that’s just not right! haha

8:30 p.m.?! I’m impressed! My body just doesn’t like going to bed early.

i am that person, too (getting up at the un-godly hour of 4:30AM!). I can’t help it. My co-workers think I’m insane. But, I do loooove morning runs. I am that person.

How have I become that person? It’s crazy. :) But I did it this morning, and I feel great.

I’ve totally experienced nap drunk!! It’s the weirdest feeling. I’m too afraid to buy a bag of candy corn bc I will go ape-shi* on them. But yeah, I’ll buy them when they go on sale so I feel less guilty. Ha.

I really like that you *bleeped* out the “t” in there. And yeah, I refuse to bring them to work. If they’re on my desk, I’ll be in huge trouble.

OMG make me one of those early morning work-it-out gals! I would love to have some of that willpower in me.

I am awful at taking naps now, but in college, oh em gee, I was the queen of naps. Oh, to be young again…

I’m that kid in kindergarten naptime who won’t partake in activities. I really rarely nap unless I reaaally need it.

I am avoiding all Halloween candy. At least for a couple more weeks. It’s just too good and I have no willpower!

The longer you put it off (at least for me), the better. ;)

First let me just say that I LOVE workaholics and always sunny. And let me also say that my coworker so evil-y puts out a dish of STRAIGHT UP candy corn in a dish in our office kitchen. I think I’ve developed so many cavities because of this. Evil, evil coworker.

I refuse to buy any candy! I will eat it all. I am going to wait until Halloween when I can “borrow” some from my nieces and nephews. ;)

I love getting a workout in during the morning, but for me that’s 9am rather than 5;30am! But if that was the only time I had to work out, I suppose I would do it too!

I have been eating candy corn non-stop! its crazy!
