Its a long time since I did one of this and not much has changed other than I am older, maybe wise and definitely a little less placid.
8:06 am after resetting the alarm from 7:15 to 7:40 and then snoozing several times.
I find 7 minutes intervals to be the perfect time between ‘that ka sleep is checking in again but I have to wake up” and ‘Shit! its 9am, I must have snoozed waaaay off”‘.
2. How do you like your steak?

Did You Know?
That MJ is not yet buried?
I am not sure he is even dead…remember how he pulled that trick that he was white and all this time his closest buddies (mourners on stage, doctor, lawyers etc) were black?
In fact the most consistent white people around MJ were the young boys, go figure!
Michael was a great talent and a greater freak (SERIOUSLY, who buys a hundreds and hundreds of right handed gloves, WTF does he think the manufacturer is supposed to do with the left ones??)
All I know is MJ could be in a cave in Afghanistan working on single with 2pac while his perm gives way.
