Have you ever tried to stay awake on purpose? You know the feeling; When you want to sleep, you stay awake. And, when you want to stay awake, you fall asleep.


Unlike my earlier post where I couldn’t sleep, I’m doing everything I can to stay awake. I drank about half a gallon of Coke. I’m wide awake, but feel like I have anvils hanging from my eyelids.

So, I’m working both a caffeine and sugar high at the same time. I’m wondering when I’m going to crash. I hope I’m not standing. The fall could be ugly. Seismologists will wonder what happened, why they couldn’t predict this quake. They’ll all be in therapy before the day is out.

Why would a 51 year-old (no that’s not me in the picture, but add wrinkles and you’re close) want to stay up all night?

That is the beauty of working with factories in China, especially when something goes wrong, and believe me, something did go wrong (no, nothing related to Angelo). With all of the technology we have today, we can work in real time and solve things through photos, IM, Skype, and video. For some reason, we haven’t figured out how to solve the time issue of being on the other side of the world.

And, if they screwed up, why am I the one staying awake?
