Sleep Deprivation

About twice a year I stay up late for some stupid reason (usually to finish a good book). Last night was one of those nights, and the stupid (in retrospect) reason was the finale of Top Chef Masters. I hate the way our cable translates Mtn time. Some shows we get two hours earlier because eight Eastern is six here. Bravo, however, we get to see at its Pacific time equivalent. Last night Top Chef Masters started at 11:15 - fifteen minutes late because the new season of regular Top Chef ran long. I crawled into bed at 12:20.

Draggin' butt today.

Sure, I could've waited and watched the rerun of it sometime today or this weekend, but I got a burr under my saddle. I wanted to see who won, and I didn't want to have to wait - and thereby take a chance someone would let the winner slip around me. (I hate that, so I'm not going to let it slip here, in case any of you missed it.)

And of course, they had to run a marathon of the show beforehand, along with the Top Chef Las Vegas right before. I watched Top Chef stuff for four hours last night.

Silly me.

Anyway, what's something you stay up late for? Any finales or season openers you're dying to watch?


  1. I just finished watching it! I DVR almost everything because I hate commercials.

  2. I'm hooked on reality TV and i too want to see it 'live' lol. HAte staying up late though.

  3. I can't wait for The Big Bang Theory and Heroes to pick back up again. Those are really the only shows I watch.
