Mr. Martini Syndrome

Remember Mr. Martini, played by Danny DeVito in the movie version of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”?  Today I feel like his much younger, taller, skinnier sister.  He uttered about two words.  “Tired. I’m tired.”  Maybe three … “I’m so tired.”  Here’s what I’m tired of and what I’m going to do about it.

  • Hopping around my bedroom in the middle of the night because my leg is cramping.  Bananas, eat bananas.
  • Keeping everything organized in my head instead of physically organizing desk, house, car.  Get your clean on, wench!
  • Not giving more to those who need it (American Idol Gives Back guilt).  Whip out the checkbook.  Volunteer work.  Actions speak so much louder than words.  Act Now!
  • Fighting with Cooper for household dominance.  Let’s see … 15 pounds vs. 120 …. I WIN!
  • Getting phone calls from people who tell me what to do.  Didn’t ask.  Caller ID was invented for this reason.
  • Be kinder.  Have been told numerous times, “Mean isn’t a good look on you.”  Get that tattooed on left forearm.
  • Exercise.  Go back to class. Chasing the dog up and down the stairs is not enough. Duh.

Although I’m tired, so tired, I’ve got plenty to do. I’d best get started.

Later.

  1. Bananas help with leg cramping? They’re now number 1 on my grocery list.

  2. They should be all I eat, considering the amount of hopping I do.

  3. I realize I’m a little late on this, but, I can’t believe you posted about this movie 5 days before I posted about crime show addictions — we really may be the same person. My boyfriend’s brother can act out the entire “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” movie, no lie, a one man show. So, what I really mean is this. Amen, sister.
