could it be i'm suffering because i'll never give in

Trouble Sleeping (Corinne Bailey Rae)

It's late and I'm feeling so tired
Having trouble sleeping.
This constant compromise
Between thinking and breathing.

Some kind of therapy
Is all I need
Please believe me
Some instant remedy
That can cure me completely

If you are a good little minion and you scroll back through the Great Blog of G you’ll see that every once in a while I don’t sleep for a couple days. It usually happens after my sleep pattern has been disrupted for a while and I’m exhausted, because my body has a sick sense of humour.

So, tonight I’ll be going to see Hancock with Part Time tonight and I’m almost finished with a book I wanted to review for you guys. Let me warn you right now: anything that I post for the rest of the week (and possibly on Monday) should be taken with a huge grain of salt. This is the third morning I’m running on less than three hours and I’m already feeling a little nuttier than usual.

Seven nights at two hours or less per night is my record. Let’s hope it stands…

Wow...
Sorry!

Susan said...

I never seem to have trouble sleeping when I'm falling in love.

That sucks, that happens to me sometimes, followed by periods where I go to bed like a child or old person 8:00pm

I can't wait to see Hancock!! I LOVE Big Willie!!

And here's to NOT breaking that record.

It's no big, NoR. If I start getting blurry vision I usually take a day off from work. I'm going to try melatonin tonightand we'll see...

Right Susan, but you are having crazy sex, so of course you go out like a light!

OG, maybe it's a condition that only attacks the fabulous? And I'm pretty excited about Hancock myself, it's just not summer without a Will Smith movie :-)

What's with bloggers and insomnia? Either insomniacs are over-represented in the blogosphere or there's a damn lot of insomniacs in this world.

I usually take Tylenol PM a couple of nights in a row to at least put me to sleep at a decent hour. Sometimes that works.

Doc said...

Enjoy the movie!

(hope you get some quality Zs soon)

Doc said...

Psst. If I am ever not able to sleep I just turn on 'The O'Reily Factor' Out like a light in like 5 minutes.

Susan said...

I haven't had crazy sex in a whole two days, G!

WNG said...

I've tried it. And any number of prescriptions as well. Warm milk, exercise, reading, and any number of things. I just have this crappy cycle. I'm trying the melatonin tonight and we'll see (fingers crossed)!

As for the insomniacs in the blogosphere I have no idea. Then again, my brain isn't really working right now so...

NoRegrets said...

I'm just saying, I'd be dead if I had to go through a schedule like that. I admire your fortitude. I was actually prescribed clonazepam.

WNG said...

Doc - If I watch it for more than two minutes I'm throwing things at the TV screen and my blood pressure is ridiculous. I'll try and do a movie review tomorrow Doc :-)

I am no longer speaking to Susan.

NoR - That's one I haven't tried, but I really hate pills so I try to stay away from docs until it's really, really bad.

NoRegrets said...

Well, Susan's busy having sex, so I'm not sure she's noticed that you aren't speaking to her...

Yeah, I used to say that. Now I'm ALL into drugs. Sort of - it really pained me to start taking this. Luckily it is short term, and non addictive. I had tried ambien and I got a hangover from it.

WNG said...

Ambien put me to sleep the next afternoon while I was at work. I literally passed out(of course I had taken three the night before). I'm only glad I wasn't driving. I might make an appointment if Part Time Blogger can't get me something - what's the point of hanging out with a Pharm Rep(drug dealer) if you can't get some good stuff for free???

ps. I am no longer talking about Sexan either

NoRegrets said...

Ha! That's Susan's new name!!!

WNG said...

If I knew who you were talking about I might agree with you...

Susan said...

If only I was from Texas...I'd be Susan Sexan, she's a Texan

WNG said...

I'm sorry, who are you? I used to have a friend named Susan, but then she kept flaunting her crazy sex at me when I was sleep and sex deprived and I'm not friends with mean people like that...

did that sentence make any sense?

dude, I need a nap...

Susan said...

I used to know a girl like that but then she kept all her crazy sex details secret and people complained. Thus she became known only as SSNT-Susan Sexan Not a Texan.

Susan Not Sexan a Texan?

Why? What's wrong with Texans?

Gye Greene said...

Sleep deprivation is really good for songwriting and abstract poetry. May as well make use of it... :)
