i couldn't figure out why i was so tired, but now i remember. i think i mentioned that there is a bird who lives in the tree outside my bedroom who thinks it is its job to sing all night long. for a while, it would just start singing at four or four thirty and wake me up, which isn't too bad. last night it sang all night long, and it is LOUD. finally at 2 or three i got up and went out and shook the tree until it flew away. it was blissfully quiet until 4:30, when it found its way back and turned up the volume. this can't go on. the thing is, i like its song, if it would only sing in the daytime. is that too much to ask? yawn.
