shaggz: i was expecting a response akin to "because jesus hates you and you're going to die"


I went to sleep last night before midnight, and I don't have to be in the office until ten.

I was still late to work.

I eat sleep like it's candy sometimes.

And sleep and sleep and sleep until the rest of my life is clouded and dank.
