When you are a bit of an insomniac, and when you have been averaging under 5 hours a night, and when you have been getting to sleep just shy of 3am, it's actually a very bad idea to fall asleep at 8:30pm. Because then you wake up 5am much to annoyance of any girls lying next to you.

Having a full two and a half hours to lie awake staring into the murky darkness gives you times to contemplate things like

  • The rain falling gently is quite peaceful and relaxing. Well it would be if that alarm in the distant just loud enough to be really annoying stopped.

  • Why is that car in the street just sitting there with it's lights on and engine idling?

  • Why is that car in the street now hooting and driving off?

  • Why is that car coming back every 15 minutes and hooting again?

  • Why doesn't someone throw a brick at that car?

  • Why can't I just think something and have it automatically blogged? Digital age my ass!

This all went on amongst other boring thoughts about laptops and work and stuff to do till 7:30am when my alarm went off and I promptly fell asleep till 9am and was late for work. The irony (and please do knock me down if this is the wrong use of irony, as I know you will) is amusing.

I hear ya. I got woken up by a magnitude 6.5 earthquake. I thought about diving for cover under my desk, but I was pretty tired and decided against it.

I fell asleep at 6:30 one evening…..yes, 6:30, I planned on taking just a nap, but woke up at 3:30 a bit disoriented…….then I did laundry.

There seems to be some kind of rule that you can always sleep when the alarm goes off, even if at no other time.

“much to annoyance of any girls”. You usually sleep with more than one girl? Lucky bastard.

I found this blog because I am so tired, but can’t sleep and went to Google and typed

insomnia r us

Oh, and some porn sites fell under that description too. Not interested in porn though. Porn is dumb.

Holy chiat.. i did the exact same thing! I even put it as my nick in MSN Messenger “insomnia r us”

Isn’t it strange how the mind works? How somebody out there can have the exact same thought as another miiiiles away from them? Now there’s another thing to ponder as i lie awake..

Take it easy people..
