    I'm sitting up at 12:30, I have to be up at 6:30 for work. I am not tired in the least but I know I will be tomorrow. I blame Nanowrimo, it's starting to take over all my thoughts...I can't sleep because I'm thinking about what I will be writing tomorrow.

    I'll go play some Pacman, that'll help I bet. I downloaded a cool PC game that is exactly like the arcade version...

      Could you post a link of that? I love Pacman.
      It's 5:50 am here, and I can't sleep either. But as I have to be up and fresh at 8am, why bother trying to get to sleep anyway now?

      I just don't worry about it. No big deal, one night no sleep - the other night I'll sleep like a baby for 14 hours big_smile

    Whenever I can't sleep I get up, have a couple of cups of coffee, and then I can sleep - go figure.  lol  ("Sleep coffee" has to be mild, have a lot of cream in it, and have one sugar in it. It's great for producing lethargy.   smile  )

      What if we are dark souls living in dark holes with only unsuccessful actions of darkness?

        Perhaps jogging 3-5 hours would help your dark mood, endorphines and all that good brain stimuli?  wink

    Sleep? Who needs sleep? I haven't had a full night's rest since I was a teenager. Staying up til 1a, 2a, etc. and getting up to get the kids to school is nothing new.

    Sitting in front of a droning TV always puts me to sleep.
