Sweet Sleep

To: Ash
From: Crecente
Re: Don't You Just Love All Nighters?


I'm running on no sleep Ash, NO SLEEP!

Well, that's not exactly true. I went to bed about 4:30 a.m. and woke up about 7 a.m. So I'm actually running on two and a half hours sleep. Phhhh, that's plenty.


Did I ever tell you about the time when I went on a sleep-free marathon? Downing so much caffeine over the course of, I don't remember how long, that I was days and days and days without sleep? It was weird, I became convinced, seriously convinced, that sleep wasn't necessary. That sleeping was an addiction and being tired, withdrawal.

I started hallucinating and eventually passed out, completely passed out, behind the steering wheel of my car. Fortunately, it was safely parked in the parking lot of my college. Best 20 minutes of sleep I had in my life.

I think I tried to convince myself of the same thing when some girl spurned me once. I ended up half-crazed on NoDoz and running around a classroom, laughing madly about the number '96000'. I would stay up all night making mixtapes or playing SNES.

The weird thing is that I found people on some listserv (I think it was a Tori Amos group) who were willing to back up my delusion. It was a weird time to be on the internet, those late '90s.
