Have you ever had strings of thought, while lazing on your bed on a lazy afternoon, during a boring meeting or whenever and wherever? I do.. a lot. Its like, you think about one subject, linking it, logically or not, to another and before you know it, you are totally off course from the first idea you thought up of.
For example, I was having one of my sleepless nights and all I could do was stare at the ceiling. I had to get up early so I didn’t want to leave the comfort of my bed lest I be more awake. So, I started wondering and pondering on my thoughts, and it goes something like this…:
Dark ceiling… hmm… kinda looks black.. like black Sunday.. what should I do this Sunday? Wash clothes, clean the flat? I think I should go shopping.. I need to buy a game.. which one?? hmm.. the new Gears of War is out.. War in the Middle East.. terrorism.. America.. KFC!! I’d definitely get some on Sunday.. Its so hot, wonder when it’s gonna rain.. wonder how long I’ve been awake?? 25 mins!! think I should get up.. naah.. Need to get up early.. wonder If I should take a bath now or when I get up? or not at all.. haha.. good one.. (*I smile at myself!).. stop smiling to yourself, dumbass.. jackass.. I wonder if Johnny Knoxville is coming out with the next installment..money.. I need to start investing in something.. gotta save some tax.. (*looking at the clock).. 35 mins!! 10 mins passed already?? Am I wasting or saving time right now trying to sleep?? let me close my eyes.. Its dark again, but I can see something floating ahead.. why do these spots keep moving in front of my eyes.. that one looks like a head.. ahead.. (*smile again).. Now I’m smiling with my eyes closed.. to myself!! What a freak!! I need beer.. I need a sip at least.. else I can’t sleep.. I need…Zzzzzz….
The next morning, I wouldn’t remember the last thing I thought about, but probably the first. And this does not just happen at night. Sometimes, while talking to someone, if the topic of discussion is boring enough, I’d be looking at him and yet mentally be playing with my strings of thought. Is this an inability to multitask, or an addiction to it? Cos’ I pride myself in being able to perform more than 2 tasks at one time, and no, reading the morning paper in the loo isn’t exactly what I mean. I wonder if this is ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder? A.D.D.. hehe.. name of the band in The Rocker starring Whatzisface from The Office… Funny movie, great music.. kinda like School of Rock, but nobody beats Jack Black and Ben Stiller in comedy.. Tropic thunder wasn’t their best one tho’.. I wonder if Robert Downey did it out of respect? When is Iron Man2 coming out? I was unsatisfied with the first part, I wanted more.. Terminator Salvation is releasing this year, so is Transformers 2 and Watchmen.. Hope they live up to my expectations.. Wonder how many lines more would I have to type on this post.. I kinda think it is long enough… hmm.. I wonder…
