Few things can make me stay up past my bed time.
Let me list a few:
- Caring for a very sick relative or friend.
- Seeing a very special relative or friend for the first time in a while.
- A playoff hockey game.
It is the playoffs. And my team… The Montreal Canadiens are still in it. As a result, every Montreal game means that it is hockey night in the M household (during the regular season, I generally only stay up for whole games on the weekends). That means I have to stay up late every other night for the last almost week. It also means that I eat more junk food (not good given I can’t run).
Yes, I have to. It is not an option.
Tonight, we cleaned the house. I did an assignment for my Molecular Genetics rotation and worked a wee bit on my manuscript (almost done the submission for research day). We are now watching the hockey game and it is around that time I would normally be hitting the hay.
I’ll be sleepy in the morning (and I have to leave extra early because my half crutch/half walk thing I have going on means it takes me about triple the time to get to the bus stop).
And yet, I don’t want this to end. I will deal with the sleep deprivation of a good long playoff run (I would like to thank residency for training me for this kind of thing). Preferably Stanley Cup kind of long.
I am a hockey fan. What can I say?
