12 posts written before dawn.

What a strange morning of blogging!

I see the light beginning to come up at last. Time to back away from the lit screen and absorb the soft gray of the morning.

This is the 13th post, written in the late stages of cabin fever from my remote outpost in The North.

You need to get out more. There are Packer tickets available for Sunday. I'll look for you on my TV.

When I say your title "12 posts written before dawn", the first thing that came to mind was Stan Rogers' "Canol Road". Silly.

And then I read "cabin fever". Eerie.

And he's got his cure for cabin fever now!

From my cabin to yours keep the blog lifeline going.

Even after the snow drifts cover the roof tops in Madison we will know MeadeHouse lives...unless the posts stop. There will be no way you can be outside. But maybe we can get a Chinese Icebreaker through to Lake Mendota.

Your problem is no dog.

I think it is fair to say your remote outpost in The Frozen North.

Written strangely, early in the morning.

Cabin fever but, hey, cabin!

You overlooked Marijuana: Colorado Stores Make $1m In A Day

The record day took place on Wednesday and the industry is expected to generate up to $2.34bn in 2014, KDVR reported .

But many of the stores are unable to gain access to banking services due to a federal law which states that cannabis is an illegal substance


Whose mattress do they stuff it into?

Use regional banks?

Can they invest in stock market or other assets?

Is this some sort of New Year's resolution? If so, it might be quite popular! Grueling, though.

"Canol Road" is classic, along with many Stan Rogers songs. of course, having lived in Alaska for 25 years, cabin fever a common topic. "There I was in my cabin, sharpening my fighting knife for hours, just the hiss of the blade over the whetstone"....

Is Meade Still in Bed on These Middle-of-the-Night Posting Sessions?

Dawn, Delight, Dew, Dove are four of the words in the Poetic Annex to C.K.Ogden's Basic English, put out by the State Department to aid foreign students.

"The late stages of cabin fever..."

I regret to inform you that cabin fever is just beginning. Report to us again in April.

Absorb the soft gray of the morning, in All Fifty Shades.

Of course. The Internet can always wait.

Meade's Old Fashioned Cabin Fever Remedy/Prevention®:
1. Go out and shovel snow.
2. Ski, ice skate, snow shoe, walk dogs.
3. Go to bed when the sun goes down.
4. Get up when the sun comes up.
5. Repeat.

If you lie down with dogs, you get up with dogs.

So… 15 hours of sleep a night?

I slept 6 hours last night. I love reading and writing before dawn and reading at night once it's dark. Usually I get 7 or 8 hours of sleep. You're suggesting doubling that!

Meade said...

Ahem. Read carefully, darling. Did I say "sleep"?

Kirk Parker said...

"So… 15 hours of sleep a night? "

Only in the middle of the winter.

You're supposed to store it up until midsummer when you keep the same kind of solar-based sleep schedule.
