But what does it mean? [Sep. 28th, 2007|11:07 am]

I'm a jotter down of things. I have to have one of those desk pads that's basically a big pad of paper, because I will jot down phone numbers, dates, things to remember, eschew the calculator for simple scribbling of math problems. And little scrap paper, post it notes, memo pads...let's face it, that sh** wanders. The desk pad is there until it gets filled up. And then, I can pore over it, making sure that any important information is transferred someplace where it actually belongs...and not on some piece of scrap paper pocketed away where its only purpose will now to be screw up an otherwise productive load of laundry.

So, it's time to peel off this sheet and start another one. But I'm baffled by this notation: "31 hours of sleep level 5"...what the hell does that mean? Sure, I'll often make notes during a phone conversation, jotting down important nouns or random words...anything to keep my mouth from saying out loud "You're boring me..." But this one baffles me.

Oh, well, I'll write it down on the next sheet, up in the corner...eventually it will come to me. But if it rings a bell with any of you, ping me.

"31 hours of sleep level 5"

Like all things that puzzle me, I googlesd the above quote, and was forwarded to THIS site:

LEVEL 4: 2am. And the devil is bartending.

For last call, you ordered a bottle of rum and a Coke. You ARE artificial turf!

This time, on your way to the bathroom, you punch the stranger at the
end of the bar just because you don't like his face! And now you're
thinking, "Our busboy is the best looking man I've ever seen." You and
your friends decide to leave, right after you get thrown out, and one
of you knows an afterhours bar.

Here, at level four, you actually think to yourself, "Well... as long
as I'm only going to get a few hours sleep anyway, I may as well stay
up all night! Yeah! That'd be good for me. I don't mind going to that
board meeting looking like Keith Richards. Yeah, I'll turn that around,
make it work for me. And besides, as long as I get 31 hours sleep
tomorrow, I'm cool."

LEVEL 5: 5am.

Yup, now I got it. Helping someone edit a recording...

But for the record...you're both geeks for having googled it.
