Just ramblin'.

It's a quarter after four in the morning where I am, and I'm sitting here munching a burrito and trying to figure out what to write about.  The pets are all asleep (finally Tommy got the late-night zoomies out of his system), and with the exception of our guest's occasional cough in her sleep or random conversation between my husband and me, it's quiet.  It's peaceful.  It's almost deafening.

And you know what?

I'm content.

I honestly love being up at this hour.  Granted, I wouldn't want to wake up at this hour, but I love being a night owl.  While the world sleeps, that is when I am at my most creative.  Sure, there's stuff I should be doing right now, there's a video on YouTube I've had my eye on for the last couple days since my friend told me about it that I'm wanting to watch, but right now, my mind's wandering too much to focus.  So, here I sit, with my burrito and the enveloping silence, and try to just find something meaningful to say.

And coming up blank.

Hey, I said I am creative at this hour, I said nothing of the sort about being able to string together a coherent thought!

Earlier I watched "Eat Pray Love."  My friend hadn't seen it, so she watched it with me.  I think she enjoyed it (at least I'm pretty sure she did, considering the remote didn't go whizzing in the air at my head.  I'm kidding.  She'd have likely just asked me if we could watch something else if she didn't like the movie).  It's one of my favourites, even if it's technically chick stuff.  I'm not really one for chick stuff, even though I, myself, happen to be of the female persuasion.  This one, though, it's based on the true story of the real Elizabeth Gilbert and her search to find meaning not only for herself, but balance in this chaotic environment we call Earth.  And it's by far one of the most beautiful stories ever.  I love it.  I don't really agree with the Eastern religions (not saying I shun them, I don't, I just don't subscribe to their practices, although the statement of "God lives in me as me," that one I can get on-board with.), but the fact that these devotees were soooooooooo in-tune with who they were as people and as practitioners....  It just fascinates me.  Each and every time I watch the movie (and it's been several).  I love seeing the enthusiasm, the warm, open way they accept Liz into their community.

And it gets me wondering, almost lamenting, why can't Christians be like that?  I've been in some Churches that claim to love Christ and love as Christ does, but they couldn't be further from the mark if they tried.  And I've been in some Churches that were quite the opposite, they were loving and accepting.

Balance, indeed.

But, yeah, tonight I'm sitting here just hanging out in a group on Facebook that I found quite by accident not too long ago (maybe a couple weeks or so ago), and tonight's been.......interesting, but fun, in there.  Met some good people, and I'm enjoying interacting with everyone, enjoying the laughs, and the meme party that inadvertently happened.

Still can't find the Murphy MacManus meme of "that's just unprofessional," though.  I KNOW it exists, I've seen it, but.......I can't find it.  Ah, well.

So, aside from that fun-ness, here I sit, writing a rambly post about nothing at almost 4.30 in the morning.

Hopefully one that isn't too boring.  LOL

At any rate, I really should go to bed, I've got stuff to do in the morning, and it's really a good idea to be lucid while doing these tasks.  LOL  G'night.
