It’s quarter to three,
There’s no one in the place ’cept you and me
So set ’em’ up joe
I got a little story I think you oughtta know

We’re drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I know the routine
Put another nickel in that there machine
I’m feeling so bad
Won’t you make the music easy and sad

I could tell you a lot
But you gotta to be true to your code
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

You’d never know it
But buddy I’m a kind of poet
And I’ve got a lot of things I wanna say
And if I’m gloomy, please listen to me
Till it’s all, all talked away

Well, that’s how it goes
And joe I know you’re gettin’ anxious to close
So thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn’t mind
My bending your ear

But this torch that I found
It’s gotta be drowned
Or it soon might explode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road


It's 0245. I can't sleep and I don't know why. The above song popped into my head when I saw the time. Tony keeps glaring at me because I'm typing 'too hard' on his little Apple Branded iBook G4. I want to sleep. I want to drift off into blissfull unconciousness. But I cannot, and I don't know why. Played poker at Tony's house most of the evening with he and Andy. Texas Hold'em. Tony's facinated with the game. I think I'd prefer straight 7-card for that matter, but it was entertaining nonetheless. I have a friend who went to Las Vegas to compete in the World Series of Poker. She finished in the top 5%. Not too shabby. She was playing Texas Hold'em. Changed Daisy's litter, refilled her food, and cleaned out her water. She gave me lots of love for that. Then I put her monthly flea formula on her and she skulked back under the bed. If I don't fall asleep soon, I'm going to pull an all-nighter and just go extra early this morning. At least the traffic from Richardson to South Fort Worth won't be bad. I have a can of Starbuck's expresso in the fridge. I was going to use it to bring myself back to life when I awoke, but perhaps I'll use it instead to revitalize myself during my zero-dark-hundred dash back across the Metroplex. Daisy just jumped up to give me some more kitty-loving. Good thing Tony keeps his iBook nearby. I'm going to try again for a little more shut-eye.

And one more for the road...
