I have gotten a total of 7.5 hours of sleep over the past two nights.  As such, I am admittedly a little, um, what’s the term – punch-drunk?  What does that even mean? 

Also, wordpress informs me that I have misspelled my title and now I must fix that.

My friends, landsquid love them, have come up Sky Turtles and Sky Sharks and Land Piranhas.  JOY.  Uh, I mean, what, I don’t have an obsession with fictional animals.

Right, focus.  I had planned a nice writing post for you all today, but seeing how I’m having issues staying awake and coherent and how everything is funny, we are going to leave that for another time and instead communicate in haiku.

Now you may ask why
The answer is quite clear
Because I said so.

Come, haiku with me
Perhaps we’ll tell a story
Possibly about squid.

The Squid Majestic
Ruler of the Deep Waters
Except the Landsquid

    Punch-drunk – dazed from or as if from repeated blows; “knocked silly by the impact”; “slaphappy with exhaustion”

      In proper format. 😛

      (What does slaphappy really mean? I ask you.)

    I’m so tired
    Could be I’m glued to my chair
    What? There’s beer? See ya.

    You should do more posts
    While sleep-depriv’d. This is
    a charming nonsense.

    In sleep you are short
    In chills you are most gifted
