Let me catch you up: Part Two  
I feel freaking fantastic.

Who KNEW what a few good nights of sleep would do for you? I didn't realize how badly it was affecting me. Man, oh, man. The beauty sleep ins necessary. Carrie was cranky and mean and not at all the happy, whimsical, wisecracking girl you've all come to know and love.

And in related news? I positively ADORE Advil PM. Like LOVE. Like if I weren't already in a monogamous relationship I might want to marry the box and have little Advil PM babies. It is the BEST. I take half the recommended dose and I'm OUT for eight hours. SHEER Bliss.

So... it's that time of the year, again. Nolan's fantasy baseball team has their draft night tonight. He gets positively GIDDY about it. I swear, October and the end of the last season feels like it was only last week, but nope, Nolan's been looking at the CBS Sports Website, clutching a worn copy of a Baseball statistics magazine, and poring over each paragraph with an intent I can only categorize as fanatical.

Which is appropriate, I suppose, considering.

Here's hoping he wins, this year.

Photobucket It should be me sitting there with a glass of wine, writing, not him giggling over Brad Borden's latest Youtube video. *shudder*

Who thinks he should get his OWN laptop and stop stealing mine?

Poll #1543328 Should he?

Leave My Laptop ALONE?

Share, Carrie.
Get your own technology, Texas boy!
Read the PBL website on your WORK computer, like everyone else.
This is the most ridiculous poll, ever.

I think it was Abby who said to McGee in a NCIS episode once that using someone else's PC is like using someone else's toothbrush. Tell him that and tell him to get his own... even a wee netbook or something.

I think we actually watched that ep the other night. WHILE he had the laptop. :S

Glad you're feeling better!! *SMOOSH!*

Also, *totes agrees with maureen*

I too agree with maureen. However, I must have missed that episode (the series hasn't come in yet).

Glad to see you're happy Carrie again. However, I cannot sleep now. I'm about to take a page out of your book. Advil PM.

Wow. You have a rough flist, nearly everyone agrees on Texas boy getting his own laptop.

Okay, Nolan is too precious with his fantasy baseball. My best friend Joey is in a league with his office, and on draft night they all stick their laptops in the conference room, order pizza and talk smack to each other (and these people all work in athletic media relations, so they're the biggest sports NERDS ever).

But I do think he should invest in his own laptop. :D

Isn't is funny/ironic that just a few years ago people would only even consider having ONE computer in their homes. Go back a decade or so and many people didn't even have that. Now we each have to have one and it's almost considered a crime to share. (A crime of which I am guilty - no one touches my ancient laptop. Not nobody.)

I say make him get his own. Or don't you have a desktop someplace? You were using it when your previous laptop died. Can't he use that?

I hear you on the sleep deprivation. I don't think I've had more than 7 hours sleep a night for at least 12 years, and even then I'm usually up at least twice during that time. Wonder why I'm cranky a lot ...

Glad you're feeling better- it's amazing how much good sleep affects our mood, isn't it? A Benadryl usually does the trick for me. I've woken up drooling from that stuff, it knocks me out so soundly.

As one of the fantasy baseball crowd, I'm ashamed to say I do much of the same obsessive poring over and analyzing as your hubby. Our copy of the baseball stats magazine is not only dog-eared, but highlighted. On the bright side, Sean despises my Yankees (insert the generic "Die, northerner, die!" rallying call of the anti-Yankees AL crowd here) and refuses to draft any of them on principle- more pitching for me. :)

Now kick that boy's butt to his work computer! (Or just hide your laptop!)

Yay, glad to hear you got some good sleep, finally!

Normally I wouldn't mind sharing computers for just checking emails and whatnot, but if it's depriving you of your writing time then that's just not on. :)

As one the FEW who said "share, Carrie!" let me qualify that by saying it depends on how MUCH he's using your computer. *looks at Nolan askance* But, he's awfully cute while he's dorking out on it. :)

My own son likes to hog my laptop so I feel your pain!
seegrimseegrim on March 26th, 2010 07:47 pm (UTC)
Yay for sleep!

And seriously, we've been saying it for years now. Nolan needs a laptop of his own. He's probably far too practical to buy another one though, isn't he? :)

I swear by Advil PM. It's so much better than Tylenol PM.

Um, I couldn't resist that many ticky boxes.

I don't actually think that your poll was ridiculous.

I'm glad you're feeling good. I love you, Carrie!
