go'in on 5 days of waking up at 3:30-ish a.m.

what gives?

( this happens often)



When you wake up are you staring at a white ceiling? If so, it's just guilt taking its toll. Cure: bamboo the bejesus out of it and set sail for dreamland.

I hope this will help. It has always worked for me. I sleep like a baby (except I don't spit up and poop in my pants.)

The "Santa Killer" may have taken this idea just a little too far. Sorry.

for the past 2 weeks we have prettymuch been snowed in. No driving for me, ust hiking around the neighborhood. Normally I get atleast 2 rs of exercise everyday, but becasue of all te stoopid snow I cant get to my yoga class, or over to the pool for my mid day swim. You would think that the lack of exercise would really make me crazy , I need to burn off a certain amount of energy every day so i can sleep.
BUUUTT I went to the liquer store, stocked up on the rum and have been drinking plenty-o-cocktails. Consequently, Im sleeping really good!
YEA RUM

That revenge lady is cuuuurazy...LOL. All week I have been waking up around 1am...get up watch TV...go back to bed at 1:30am...then wake up again at 3am and do the same for half an hour. Then I wake up just before the 5am alarm clock. On the weekends it is nap city for me...pisses me off as it is a good waste of my time off, but I am exhausted from this delightful insomnia. SIGH!!!

Nice lid. Yep. I think it's that white strip staring at you all night that's waking you up. Bamboozle it.

Ben!!! That is the ceiling I want in my lounge, with a little tapa mixed in. I already have a ceiling fan almost identical to that one (with the light), so I am part way there. With the economy the way it is though, probably won't have the dough till 2010, but I am sure a group of us Sac folks could coordinate some projects for ya by then. Must be nice though to have that ceiling to wake up to.

I have resorted to taking 1 Excedrin PM some evenings, it seems to help a little, but tonight I might take 2 and see if it works better. Ahhh...better living through chemistry!!!

I think it's just people who are logged in but not actually here. Or some of our global partners. Or robots. Real people aren't actually browsing at 4 Am Pacific, that's just crazy. Unless they're up checking for UFO activity. Which wouldn't be crazy at all.

Then there is a corrolation between tiki collecting and insomnia, you must send me your tikis immediately and you'll sleep soundly hereafter.

I generally sleep fine, but to prevent any chance of future problems sleepin' I decided to heed naugatiki's advice and send alla my tikis his way. To save postage I decide to reduce their weight by first burnin' 'em all to lightweight charcoal and ash...



And while the fire was ragin' I
busted up all the mugs into small bits to save space. I'll get the whole mess...I mean collection...boxed up tomorrow and send 'em off on Monday.

My physician Dr. Somnambula informs me that only intact tikis with remove the spell. Much like removing lava rocks brought curses to Hawaiian tourists who took them from the islands. Im afraid the broken tikis have released their mana in the Seattle sky, more snow will fall next week along with a city wide Starbucks buzz that will last late into the night.

We should call this thread the 2:30am Club.
Here is another twist...my tiny, beautiful, loving wife...snores like a Canadian logger. Dang, the sounds she can make are not of this world, the dog finally gave up and went down stairs to sleep. The worse is, she stops...and then starts again 10 min later, RIGHT before I fall asleep. I have tried moving her onto her side, nose strips, that spray...
My son's home visiting and a buddy came with him so the guest room and the sewing room are full...next couch we buy is going to be big enough to sleep on, this one is 1 foot too short. Too cold in the camper...ah heck there is plenty of Christmas goodies to eat...
