Why am I watching this?

It is a little past midnight here in El Paso. Despite a 0500 wake-up I find myself watching the live feed of the Olympics from Beijing. Now, when it was something interesting like Michael Phelps being superhuman or a bunch of teenagers reaching the apex of their accomplishments at age 13 16 I could excuse myself the indulgence. Right now I'm watching the women's 10,000 meter race. I have no idea why. Could be worse, I could have paid money for a plane ticket to China, a hotel room in Beijing, and tickets to the track and field day and realized that I went on the day of the women's 10,000 meter race.
