Things I am too tired to do right now

1. Argue with my imaginary friends
2. Write a decent blog post
3. Decide whether or not Einstein and Stephen Hawking would get along if they were locked in a room together for two weeks
4. Breathe
5. Check to make sure I have a clean pair of pants to wear tomorrow
6. Write to Taco Bell and tell them to bring back the Chicken Club Chalupa
7. Vacuum anything
8. Calculate the distance between Venus and Neptune, and decide whether or not this is shorter than the lines were at the grocery store last week
9. Contemplate the wisdom of going to bed earlier
10. Eat pizza
11. Write a poem involving the word "sesquipedalian"
12. Remember where Australia is
13. Think of a thirteenth thing for this list

I think Einstein and Hawking would get along quite well, mostly because Hawking built on Einstein's work by proving the first of many singularity theorems; such theorems provide a set of sufficient conditions for the existence of a singularity in space-time. This work showed that, far from being mathematical curiosities which appear only in special cases, singularities are a fairly generic feature of general relativity. Also, they're both HUGE fans of Gilligan's Island, which they could watch on Hawking's computer at fancast.com.

P.S. -- A poem using sesquipedalian would be unusually long, right? Not as long as a grocery store line, certainly, but perhaps as long as the distance between Venus and Neptune. We should ask Einstein and Hawking. They'd probably know. We could bribe them with Chicken Club Chalupas, Taco Bell's finest chalupa. I have 325 of them stored in my freezer. I knew they wouldn't sell them forever, and they're that good.

I could write all day about things that I am too busy to do, but I am too busy to write about all of them!

I wonder if Einstein liked beer pong? LOL!

There once was a sesquipedalian
Who married an Episcopalian
Ian was the gent's name
And hot sex was his game
'Cause everyone wanted to nail Ian.

Yeah, it sucked. I know

MikeWJ: If you hear a few things go bump in the night, go back to sleep. It's just me raiding your freezer.

Otin: Einstein seemed like a pretty cool guy... just look at that hair!!

Brian: My imaginary friends usually do most of the talking. It's a wonder they don't have blogs of their own.

Mr.Knucklehead:
The lady who starred in Pygmalion
Was not quite a sesquipedalian
She was using the force
So yes, (Yes, of course!)
We realized she must be an alien

I was going to leave a clever limerick as well, but - you guessed it - I'm too tired.

Jeff: I completely understand. The irony is that right now I'm too tired to get up and go to bed.
