I just can’t deny it anymore

My name is Alex, and I’m an insomniac. Lifelong sufferer, but I’ve always blamed it on other things. Caffeine, eating too close to bed (temporally, not spatially), lack of exercise, too much exercise, naps, too much on my mind. But none of it’s true. Even when I live as well as I can I still have nights where I just can’t sleep. I realize that it has to be something mental; I don’t have an insomnococcus infection (streptococcus: any of a genus of spherical or ovoid chiefly nonmotile and parasitic gram-positive bacteria that divide only in one plane, occur in pairs or chains, and include bla bla bla–gram-positive? divide in one plane? occur in chains? Maybe biology is cooler than I thought. Other than the memorize-every-tiny-detail stuff). But it’s not some external factor that I can determine. The worst part is that I’m tired. I’m too mentally exhausted to do anything useful, like read A Tale of Two Cities (hence all these posts), and I know that I’ll be exhausted tomorrow at work, and the day after that.

Oh well, no one ever died from insomnia, right?

For shadwstalkr I got “Mussolini said, ‘Right, we’re all fascists!’ but, most Italian people are always on scooters going, ‘Ciao…’,” which is one of my favorite lines (but I love all the lines in that show. Buy the DVD, there’s about 30 minutes that were cut out on HBO).

Oddly appropriate. And for shadwstalkr I get papillon (butterfly). This is creepy.

A good tip from Queer Eye

Reheat pizza in a skillet rather than in the microwave. The crust stays (or gets, if your pizza place sucks) crispy. I haven’t figured out the correct temperature yet so that the cheese gets melty but the crust doesn’t get blacky.

If you haven’t friended merovingian yet, go read this. It’s so rad it made me use slang from the early nineties.
