I go up a little earlier, just to be with J. I fall asleep with the I Love Lucy DVD on. I realize Lucy, et. al. have been in my life for as long as I can remember. That is pretty incredible.

But the pattern is that I fall asleep earlier. I waken after a similar interval, two or three hours, with body pain and over-heated from central heating.

Going up earlier sends J the message that i want to be a with her. Monday night brings the c challenge of feigning interest in The Bachelor. I am just not that good an actor. We shall see what happens..
