Lovejoy, Peacepatience

When I was in college, I knew a girl whose last name was Lovejoy. My friend Kelly and I decided that we also wanted to have fruit of the spirit last names, so I started calling myself “Kari Peacepatience” and she decided to be “Kelly Selfcontrol.” I even got her a little beaded bracelet that said “self-control.” We thought this was the funniest thing ever. (We also thought that quoting Tommy Boy a lot was going to help us get guys. That tells you a bit about our intelligence right there.) I can’t help it – I still giggle when I think about it.

Last night I fell asleep just fine, but I woke up around 2:00 or 2:30 and was awake until 5:00 or 5:30 . . . I avoided looking at the clock, so I don’t know for sure. But I do know that even Pride and Prejudice didn’t help me, and its soothing tones usually lull me to sleep when I am having trouble sleeping. So, if you don’t think my Peacepatience story is funny, blame it on fatigue. (But if you like it, just remember that I am a naturally clever person.)
