Sleep deprivation

I wanted to write a post about the strange crap that flows through my mind when I’m sleep deprived.

I was mulling the concept while waiting for a bus to work this morning. Only, in my mullings, I called it dep-prevation.

Also, is mullings a word?

So anyway, I got on the bus & saw a girl using her phone. I freaked out in my head & thought “OMG! Isn’t this a quiet carriage?!”

Clearly I get trains too often.

Also, this is what the bus seat fabric looks like:


Not actually related to sleep derivation, but not a thought a normal person has, people seem to like the “wheel” seats now. No! That was my little secret!

If you have a wheel seat, your legs are up a bit higher & they form a convenient table so your bag doesn’t have to touch the dirty bus floor!

This is a wheel seat. R-L: aisle, normal floor, wheel bit. Yep. Technical!


This also gives the impression that you’re very uncomfortable & resigned to your lousy spot on the bus so no one sits next to you until it’s absolutely necessary. Double win!

Also, I’m glad I snapped those photos before the bus started filling up.

Some woman just walked past me jangling. Not just like some tiny charm bracelet. She sounds (and looks) like a freaking wind chime. I feel sorry for whoever sits next to her at work all day.

Now I’m thinking about ears. The person in front of me has her hair up & the back of her ears are very visible. It’s not often you see the back of someone’s ears. I don’t know who would have seen mine last. I hate having my hair up (long story) so my ears are the hairband for my hair.

So, after reading this, are you as strange as me when you’re sleep deprived?

  1. I’m going to go with… No :). But I do like this stream-of-consciousness post. You have a point about eats. I’m going to go wash behind mine right now 🙂
    You can sleep tonight, yay!
