Insomnia

I wish I could sleep when I really wanted to. Instead, my brain decides to take a tour of any random event or past thought. And I do mean any.

Some of the things my brain has decided to rehash today (yes, instead of sleeping).

  • The Acting Company of Hibriten High School 1994 performance of 'Romeo & Juliet'
  • Do I have a fiber to go from patch panel A to patch panel B at the office?
  • Why don't I write a blog post about the music I have been listening to lately and why I have been listening to it?
  • Why can't I sleep?
  • I should clean my office.
  • I should clean my office at home, too.
  • Why didn't that port work this morning during the overnight maintenance?
  • I need to order 'Small Favor' by Jim Butcher.

Yes, some of these things are 'todo' list items that I should probably have on a todo list so that I stop thinking about them. The problem with that is, once I start making a list, I obsess about it. Which means I don't sleep anyway. So what do I do? I fire up the laptop, look at my rss reader, facebook, twitter, email and then fire up a blog post.

Oh yeah, reaaaalll productive.

Anyone have a location of the Insomnia Fairy? I have something I would like to discuss with that individual.
