its 4:51 in the morning and I can't sleep a wink.

in other news, I'm home for the holidays.
this is me and my mother looking rather disheveled in a cell phone camera picture:
 -

She's 45 and she raised me so you know she's amazing. oh yeah, she's also single [Wink] [evil]

Aww... you've got the same smile. Disheveled or not, being cute obviously runs in your family.

we definitely do. same nose and bone structure too!

put my brother and me next to my father though, and you'd ask "do you even have a mom? jesus! you're all clones!"

We demand scientific evidence! [Wink]

Seriously... how about a family photo?
(assuming none of your family members have any major reservations about it)

Ah, but would it be scientific? Might be a Photoshop whiz and tamper with the image ;)

Heh, at first I thought this was a thread about somebody who had insomnia. I was kind of at a loss, because I have the opposite problem- narcolepsy.

Anyways, nice photo BA. Lookin' good!

Dang, BA, I would have thought she's your sister!

Strangely enough, I couldn't sleep last night either. Sympathy insomnia maybe? I did manage to drift off before 4:51am though! I think.

I think we're supposed to be taking a dad/bro/sis photo tomorrow with a photographer, actually. but I won't be anywhere near a scanner until after Christmas.

and club: I can only hope that I age as nicely as my mother is.

That's okay. It gives me something to look forward to that might brighten the miserable, barren wasteland that is my life.

(the fact that this is being posted two hours into a three hour long meeting that I can barely keep my eyes open for may have affected the tone of the post)

Damn, Steen...you practically make me sound cheerful by comparison. [Wink]

I don't envy you with the 3 hour meeting...but try having a 5 hour meeting...that's a new level of hell. Most of us came out of that wishing we were dead. (Thankfully that was 1-2 years ago, but I'm still kind of shell-shocked.)

And now, let me just say "Bah humbug." [Big Grin]

Ouch. I was just bored and had a computer to entertain myself with (how bad can a meeting be if I get to read GC during, after all).

I do get to feel some pain for the end of February/beginning of March. I have to sit in on a week long customer training class to audit it (i.e. pay attention) and verify that everything is taught correctly. I wrote 90% of the material, however, so it's guaranteed to be boring for me.

Thank goodness the Dilbert-ization of my company has not proceeded that far. The longest meetings we have are our twice-annual company meetings, which last for about an hour and a half. That duration has held fast even after a large infusion of private equity and acquisition of one of our largest competitors. What are we doing wrong? How can our company possibly be succeeding without long boring meetings?!

Our lab meetings happen once a week and rarely last more than an hour. Then the boss's ADD kicks in and he lets us go.

I love my boss.

In my company's defense, there's something big that may happen (I have the -best- insider trading info right now [Eek!] ) that requires this level of discussion. Depending on the outcome, it's possible I may get shipped off to a very northern portion of Germany for a bit. Not a really fun area, though, so I'm sort of hoping to avoid that part of it.

... and now I'm gonna shut up before I give away information that could get me fired [Smile]

Ugh, I am not a fan of Insomnia, but he seems to be awful fond of me.... [Frown]

If ever you find a solution for it, please let me know.

I've been suffering from it all my life and I think I've tried just about everything. Environmental changes (colder, hotter, light, no light, sound, no sound, etc)., diet/exercise changes, schedule changes, over the counter medicine, perscription medicine, therapy, sleep hypnosis, warm milk, reiki, prayer, wall sits for hour increments while reading army manuals, etc.

Heh.

Heh.

Rohipnol. Not only does it help you sleep, there's a whole wide world of uses for it at bars and clubs.
