I love 'em too, my problem is, once I am engaged in a movie, I can't/won't fall asleep. I skillfully avoid some of my faves if they are on when i am trying to only watch the backs of my eyelids.

On top of all the family stress going on with Dad, my asthma has decided to act up again and so I had to start back on the dreaded prednisone again. As if I didn't already have insomnia, this stuff always elevates me and I end up with energy and anxiety half the night.

So, rather than fighting it I think I am going to go bake some cookies to take to my pain clinic tomorrow. I have been promising them something and I might as well use the time wisely.

I do miss my midnight cooking, seems like I really only enjoyed cooking in the wee hours. But, of course, when I was working night I didn't have half the health problems i have now...I think I may be allergic to days....

I fortunately don't have medical problems that keep me awake, just a really active brain. My thoughts go all over the place. "That water stain on the ceiling looks like a horse Roland is snoring funny tonight Zombie plants aren't really a very scary idea The viens in a leaf really do fit asthetically into the whole idea of a tree since they branch out in a way similar to a tree's branches Cauliflower doesn't work as well as baby trees as brocoli does but it kind of works as piles of snow if the stem is completely gone Zebras Hey there little fly buzzing on the ceiling...)

The worst is if I end up wondering about something because I'll obssess over it until I find an answer, even if the answer is that nobody knows. Like, I'll suddenly want to know how cough drops work, or I'll remember part of a math formula but not remember all of it. The science and math ones aren't as bad now that the internet provides access to so much information which I'm super grateful for. If I know the answer is known by someone it gets physically uncomfortable for me not to know and there is a very physical craving for the answer. But sometimes I'll start thinking about phillisophical questions or big picture questions (what does forever really feal like, if God created us who created God, musings on the difference between what's legal, what's ethical and what's moral). If they are questions that have no answers it can take days, sometimes weeks to distract myself away from the thoughts. The craving to know the answer isn't there, instead it's a craving to completely explore the thought and unless I have something else to focus on my brain feels sort of itchy if I move away from the thought.
