Toora, Loora, Loora

I think the Florida State University College of Engineering has combined forces with their School of Chemistry and released into the air an experimental biological warhead containing spores which induce narcoleptic-like symptoms in all living forms.
This weekend was spent fighting the need, no the physical necessity for sleep not only by me but almost every human being I spoke with. I took a nap Saturday morning….MORNINGbefore lunchtime for crying out loud. When I spoke to my mother, my ex-MIL, and my best friend all three of them had napped Saturday as well. It affected the young and old alike.

Even Spawnette, who usually slithers to her Moravian sarcophagus just as dawn is breaking, had succumbed to a comatose slumber by seven thirty last night; the dog right there at her side.

If the trend continues, I’ve considered purchasing the new and improved SGE 400 complete with the Drager 40mm NBC Filter. I have five days to get my work at the office caught up with nothing sitting on my desk. The Spawn and I are leaving for a weeks vacation and I want nothing… hear me NOTHING standing in the way of a totally and completely irrelevant and meaningless vacation. A vacation spent drinking beer by the poolside and reminiscing with my girl Kat about all of the trouble she caused during our years in high school.

Crap, you already read yesterday’s post, didn’t you? I like to pretend I was a sweet, kind, and caring young lady back in my teen years. Can you guys play along with me, please?

I haven’t yet figured out what has been causing the need to sleep. I have hypotheses other than airborne pathogens expelled into the air with malicious intent to infect the good people of Tallahassee with experimental bioweaponry but I’m going with my first suggested explanation for now.

Sleep well, my Brethren, and dream of peace.

I always dream of ... I'm sorry, did you say "pEAce"? I though you said something else. Carry on.

No "ni" in peace, Lou.

You've just hit upon the peaceable version of chemical warfare! We release these evil pollen spores upon the enemy. Or would could also release the pollen that makes your head feel like it's exploding.

I think it's sympathy sleep since I haven't slept in a week.

Hey there!

You crack me up! I've had a bit of the insomnia myself. Isn't that weird!? And don't worry, you'll have a fabulous vacation doing nothing or everything...whatever you want, baby. Just down lots of foo foo drinks and you'll be just fine.

BTW, as you know, I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I wanted to let you know I really appreciate all your sweet and supportive comments. You rock so much!!! I love ya too!

You are so lucky to be going on vacation! We're not going anywhere this year. Due to some dumb house projects we have to do before the cold bitch which is winter hits our land.

I wish I could take naps. I tried once about 3 years ago only to be rudely shaken awake by one Andrew Husband asking me if I was okay because I never sleep during the day! I'd try it again but this way I can always say "You NEVER let me take naps!" It's more fun.

Don't worry about the naps...when you're 90 you won't be able to sleep a wink...but you won't know it either. Isn't life fun? ha ha

What the hell ... I'm practically a hypnotist ... Let's try this.

Look into the screen.
Stare right into it.
Focus on the center of my words.
Your eyelids are getting heavy.
They're getting heavier.
Even more heavi. . . . . .
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzz

Here's to hoping you are well rested just in time for your vacation. I expect a full report when you get back. :)

Geez, Blogger is totally sucking these days. I just wrote a response and it didn't take.

Anyway, my poor sleep habits require me to take a nap almost daily. Maybe your need to nap means you're mind is already in vacation mode? Or maybe Mercury is in Uranus?! *snicker* (I love saying that!) ;)
