Ain’t No Mountain Hai(ku) Enough: The Week in Twitter Haiku

I’m starting to notice the number of haikus I write that include either drinking or insomnia. Call me crazy, but I’m beginning to think the two might be related. Granted, if you asked which came first, this isn’t a “chicken or the egg” scenario. I’ve always slept poorly, even when I was a kid. And at that time, I was barely drinking. So what did I do yesterday? I didn’t drink. Not a thing. Now, I’m not saying I had an impeccable night’s sleep; however, I feel better today than I did yesterday, so there’s that. My plan, then, is to drink nothing for a few days and see what happens with this whole inability to sleep thing. The question, then, is can Cousin Brandon lay off the booze and drink nothing but coffee, Diet Coke and water until Friday at the earliest? We’ll see. I have my doubts, but we’ll see. Anyone want to set the over/under for how long I make it?

This installment of haikus covers Monday, February 15, 2010 through Sunday, February 21, 2010, covering President’s Day, Married with Children, hangovers, Ed Hardy, insomnia and getting entirely too drunk. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or go on over and subscribe to my Twitter feed (@CousinBrandon). I, of course, encourage you to do both, but I’m only one man, and we all of us know for a fact that a single person can’t change anything. Except the channel.
