You know you're tired when you open a browser but don't know why.

You stare into your makeup compact of face powder and wonder where the calculator keypad went. :bugeye:

You call someone and when they answer you don't remember who they are or why you called them.

I'm tired. :frown:

When I'm watching TV late at night while fighting to keep my eyes open sometimes the TV screen splits into two images. My eye muscles can no longer hold my eyes correctly.

Time to crash, sis. Lay down. Rest those peepers. It's dreamtime.

Yeah, and the streets are covered with ice and snow, we had ten inches of snow over 2 inches of ice. :zzz:

The good news is I understand that people that are unconcious when they crash suffer fewer injuries than those that are concious.

Whenever I get to a computer, I open an internet browser, then realize I had no reason to and close it. It's just a habit

Hehe, I've had that happen to me several times. Usually around 2AM after a boring night at home alone :frown: I sit by the computer, stare at it a little, open up the browser, and wonder why the hell I'm not going of to bed.

Hope you had a good night's sleep :wink:

Lol I've done this opening browser and forgetting why I wanted to open it many times. Other things include:

Answering the phone in the morning when the alarm goes off
Going to shave in the morning and using my tooth brush
Sliding my credit card instead of my student ID at the prt (transportation system at the university here)
etc...

Going to shave in the morning and using my tooth brush
That sounds particularly familiar. :rofl:

I often stay online because I often can't sleep - and I hate it when I can't sleep, so I actually stay online because of the phobia of not being able to sleep, although I'd most likely be able to sleep most of the time. :biggrin:

Well don't crash! If you have to go out, please drive carefully. Get yourself home safely - and stay there! *stern but kind smiley face*

I heard its really bad out in Kansas, and people have lost power around Missouri.

We just had a severe thunderstorm blow through here and this area is under a tornado warning until 10pm local time.

I'm safely at home. The animals are fed and happy, I have my flannel polar bear pajamas on and a plastic cup filled with Fresca and vodka. Now I'm no longer tired. :frown:

Just keep topping with vodka, that shoulddo the trick. :smile:

Going to shave in the morning and using my tooth brush
:rofl: I guess that's better than going to brush your teeth in the morning and using your razor! :bugeye:

Sliding my credit card instead of my student ID at the prt (transportation system at the university here)
etc...
I'm rather fond of trying to walk in the exit and then get confused when I can't figure out where to slide my ID. Thank goodness I don't need to use it very often (but it always seems to be when I'm very tired and would rather not be heading to one of the other campuses).

When are we going to meet up anyway? If I can go to Disney to meet Zz and Philly to meet Russ and NJ to meet ST, surely I can manage to cross University Ave to meet you! :rofl:

Answering the phone in the morning when the alarm goes off
:rofl: For me it's the other way around - my phone rings and wakes me up then I keep pressing the snooze button and wondering why it isn't shutting up. It's very disorienting!

Spending ten minutes unsuccessfully trying to find your glasses in the morning only to discover you can't see after you step into the shower because they fog up.

The worst is when you hear your alarm clock go off at 6:00 PM. It means you
  1. slept right through it without even turning it off in your sleep, and
  2. have only twelve hours until it goes off again.

Often, as a sleep-deprived college student, I subconsiously--no joke--turn off my alarm clock. It is very frustrating. If I decide to study for a test and stay up, then that means I'll be up the whole night, because I'm scared to go to sleep with any time left over.

When your driving home late last night--knowing that your about 10 minutes from your house in a very well-known area, but yet you still forget how to get home and get lost. I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out where the heck I was and how to get home :(

How about driving down the interstate. There is a truck traveling the same direction about a half a mile ahead. All of sudden, it's right in front of your car. Good thing the interstate was straight! :bugeye:

That was after a 12 hr concert on a Sunday afternoon (12 noon - 12 am), which was after being up all day Saturday night and sleeping for about 2 hrs in the parking lot at the concert stadium Sunday morning after driving overnight. That was back in the wild days of uni.
