too much caffeine + too late at night = this post

Monday, February 23

last night i consumed far too much caffeine after dinner. usually, i can handle large amounts of caffeine with no problem, and still fall asleep at night. but, for some reason last night, my brain was racing a mile a minute, and i couldn't slow it down. and as i lay in bed, trying desperately to fall asleep for what seemed like hours, my mind started to wander and consider various theories and hypotheses for scientific experiments that i would never in a million years be able to test or perform, because the technology needed to perform them only exists...well, in my imagination. yet, i performed them in my head, and gathered imaginary data that i used to draw my conclusions.

when i woke this morning, and thought back on the late night experimentations that went on in my head the night before, it made me wonder why i didn't pay more attention, or participate more in science class. in high school the 2 subjects i always enjoyed the most were math and art. (while my friends were all taking geometry and algebra, i was taking trigonometry. then i took ceramics, sculpture, and jewelery my senior year. and of course, photography my freshman, junior, and senior years.) it wasn't until i met adam that i realized how interesting science is! i started watching star trek, documentaries about the universe and the human body, and i may even start to read his book explaining string theory. (he's reading it right now, so i'll have to wait.)

i definitely concede that i would NOT be the person i am today were it not for my geeky, nerdy, smarty-pants, cartoon-faced husband. ; ) 8 years ago, today, was when we started officially dating, and we have LITERALLY seen each other every single day since!

happy dating anniversary, adam!

good thing you remember dates like this. i have a hard enough time remembering our wedding anniversary, your birthday, and when garbage day is.

8 years, and you've seen each other every day? That is an incredible accomplishment :) Congratulations!

(It sounds like you fit each other to a "T". And Marcia, I am totally impressed by your sleepless thoughts. If I can't sleep, I think about food, or shopping, or my to-do list. Definitely not scientific experiments!)
