Dear Matt Damon: Welcome To The Club, And Pass The Nyquil

Matt-damon This just in from Matt Damon, who has three kids, the youngest of whom is 15 months: "I never knew I could function this well with no sleep. That was a realization.”

Welcome to the club, buddy.

Welcome to the club of sleep-deprived parents who THINK that they function perfectly fine without sleep, that weeks and weeks and weeks of nights wrestling toddlers don't really undermine our ability to walk and speak and be coherent. We are the parents who say things like "that was a realization" and then wander away, confused.

Somehow, though, Damon managed to stay upright long enough to make a documentary about political participation - The People Speak - although when you think about it, that's also a totally sleep-deprived thing to do, because, seriously, when else in your life are you going to find discussions of filibustering and gerrymandering and proportional representation interesting?* When you're sleep-deprived, everything is stimulating.

Now's the time, in other words, to go work on that degree in public administration (with minor in municipal tax policy.) You go, Matt.

*says the girl with a political science degree.

I can't even process what any of this means, but like the photo of Matt Damon looking cute.

I haven't slept in 6 days. Who needs Nyquil? I'm high as a kite on sleeplessness.

I'll see your six days and raise you three years. One of my 2 1/2 year old twins woke me FIVE times last night because she had a runny nose and her blankie came off.

If only I could be sleep-deprived WITH Matt Damon, that might make it all better.

Janna

Now when my husband and I get too much sleep (ie over 8 hrs) we just sit up at night, too alert to fall asleep. I can only function now on 5 hours or less, or I can't sleep because of all the ideas flowing in my head.

That paragraph is full of crazy but it makes perfect sense to me.

Jessi

Kim - Amen, sister. Being sleep deprived with Matt Damon would make it all better.

Regina

And I thought starting my master of public administration now that my daughter is two was the way to go. I should have done it when she was still up three times a night. I missed that opportunity, I guess. Now I have no excuse!

His brilliant turn in the Entourage season finale (esp the credit sequence) earns him a handful of free passes from me.

Petit Elefant

At this point C-Span is the equivalent of Nyquil, or Ambien or any other sitting still action that puts me to sleep.
