Not tired.

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

I'm telling you, this works better than counting sheep.

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

A couple days ago, I picked up a guitar for the first time in ages. To play something OTHER than Coal Miner's Daughter and Delta Dawn, which I played one too many times this summer, and sang with a fake Southern accent while dressed in pigtails.

I'm starting to crave the recording studio again, and singing as myself instead of whoever.

But I DO love being imaginary people. The only thing with being an imaginary person is that it takes me a LONG time to wind down after returning to my real self, and now I can't sleep.

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

It's working.

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

I also tried eating graham crackers (they're actually graham cracker sticks) dipped in peanut butter. That may be helping. I hope we don't find out one day that crackers lead to some kind of incurable disease, because I'd be doomed. DOOMED. It used to be Wheat Thins and Triscuits. But after, oh maybe 8 years of those two kinds of crackers being staples in my diet, I've moved on to Kashi 7-grain. They're delicious! And now I'm into these Back to Nature Cinnamon Graham Sticks. Back to Nature also makes a very good cheese cracker. Much like the Cheese Nips or Cheezits or whatever except they're less fat. And all natural. This is just out of control, this cracker business.

Ya know what I think it is? I used to be a cereal connoisseur. Cereal was my go-to snack. But nowadays, cereal is ridiculously expensive, and if I snacked on cereal, I'd eat myself into financial instability. That must be what started this whole economic downfall in the United States. It's the cereal! Nobody could afford their mortgage payments because they ate too much cereal! Well, I am way too responsible for that nonsense and have cut my snacking expenses in half by substituting crackers for cereal. I should write a book on solving the financial crisis. It would be titled: Eat Less Cereal!

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

I've got double shows tomorrow. Matinee and Evening. It's 5:04 AM. This is not good.

Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired. Not tired.

But getting sleepy....

You know, some people might find that odd, but I understand completely. Whatever you and Seth enjoy is really your own business. Sometimes Nanx dresses up as a naughty nurse for me.

LOL Chaotic Hammer!!

Also, you might consider getting a script for some Ambien. It's a wonder drug. I take half of a 5 mg tablet; I fall asleep within about 15 minutes and it wears off by about 4-6 hours so I don't ever feel groggy in the morning. I'm telling you, without it I'd never sleep.

C-ham, I didn't know Nanx was in theater too! What show?

Its not odd, its theater! For the record, I'm not in theater and have NEVER dressed up in pigtails and sang with a fake country accent.

Ahh I remember the Wheat Thin years... we ate many a box of those at 24C! I too however have had to move on and I agree with you about the Kashi crackers!

Audrey said...

you said "not tired" 48 times! Including the title and if I counted right:)

C-ham, uhhhhh.....T.M.I.

Katy, thanks for the suggestion. =-)

Haley, (well, I'm pretty sure you're Haley, because if baby Isla could type already, woah., and I don't remember Stephen ever raiding our pantry for the Wheat Thins, so....) hi!! So glad you agree about the Kashi crackers! Ahhh the days of 24C.

Audrey, yes I did. =-) Sure beats counting 48 sheep.
