Hour 5. Shooting a fast food commercial. Will be updating until I get off work as an experiment of sorts. Also to make sure I stay awake.

I am not particularly sleepy yet even though it's 3am. I arrived at work at 10pm. People were saying 'good morning' out of habit. It is not morning. It is night time. I've been up since 7:30am yesterday morning because I could not sleep at all during the day. I had a giant cup of coffee before work. I should be ok.


Hour 6. It's 4am. Still not particularly tired. My monthly visitor is being a real butt and my back hurts. Currently sitting. People are getting loopy and laughing about the phallic nature of what we are shooting. We're not shooting porn. We're shooting fast food. I have now been awake for 20 and a half hours. This is my own fault. I should have slept today....yesterday.

Hour 6 and a half. Coworker yawned in funny way. Me and other coworker imitated his funny yawn in exaggerated manner. Probably would not have been funny if it was not 4:30am. Edited title of this post because it was kinda vague.

Hour 7 and a half. Lunch has been called. Actually really sleepy now. Went to my car to take a nap. No dice. I thought I was tired but whenever I get in a car my brain goes into 'I DONT WANNA DIE!!' mode and wakes the fuck up. Dammit, brain. Shut up.

Hour 8. Actually eating now. Managed to get about 5 minutes of rest. It sort of helped. Did some minimal manual labor. Have 'Everything is Awesome' from Lego Movie stuck in my head. That is definitely helping my mind get to the right place to finish strong. Grabbed a coffee to get me through the next 4 hours.

Hour 8 and a half. Giggly delirium is setting in. Used restaurant bathroom and noticed sign that said 'Notify crew member if this room is messy.' Briefly entertained notion of informing fellow crew members that the bathroom was a bit messy. Resisted the urge.

Hour 8 and three quarters. We have moved outside. It is fucking freezing out here.


Hour 9. In one half hour, I will have been awake for 24 hours.
