Empathy No. 015
07/21/02, Diary entry 410
I swear, no one SLEEPS in this house. I know I didn't sleep great last night, not with Jason clomping around like that. I have no clue how he makes that much noise - and does he think he's being quiet? Please.
But I asked him about it - not that I expected he was sneaking out to go drinking or anything, he's way too boring to get in trouble - and he had a lot to say. I guess he noticed Roderick was up a lot, and he went out to see what new stepbro was doing. They spent the evening watching some Japanese cartoon that Roderick's into. So does this mean that they're buddies now, or is one of them just being really, REALLY nice? Well, I hoped this would happen, and it takes some of the pressure off me.
Actually though, I wonder how much Roderick does sleep. He's always up when I'm up, beats me up by quite a bit I think. But he'll also wait all night for the bathroom to open up, and I bet he's not going to bed until at LEAST midnight. So he's getting six hours max, and prolly a lot less. I would be a positive WRECK if I tried to keep that schedule for more than a couple days. How the hell does he do it? And what does he do with all that time? My theory that's he not human gets stronger by the day.
I can't believe I'm wasting so much mental effort on this. Gary's big show is coming up, and I'd bet real money that Dad makes me drag Jason along. And school starts after that, and I got to watch out for two new people. If anyone needs that extra sleep, it's Yours Truly.
