Last night's sleep was ... rough at best. Starting around 3:00 a.m., and with no discernible cause, I started waking up frequently, and even when I was asleep I was having noisy dreams that kept me from getting rest. I don't remember most of them now, but I remember there was one about a very normal contemporary suburban elementary school that just happened to be sitting on a snow-swept mountaintop, and there was another about a CHAMPIONS campaign I was going to run in which the mastermind villain called himself "Deuce" and was actually Two-Face, in his eighties and still batty as a bedbug -- and I was debating with the police NPCs from the campaign the details of Two-Face's headquarters and what "powers" should represent the various gadgets therein. I was also trying to figure out a way to work Dr. Destroyer into it.

When morning came, in my dazed half-sleeping state, I tried to explain to laurie_robey how I felt after these nocturnal adventures, and having fallen asleep without realizing it I told her, "It's like I had coffee before bed so I could watch the squirrels bounce." Which simultaneously makes no sense whatsoever, yet perfectly captures exactly how I feel.

Ermf. Gonna be a long day. -.-

I just had my 4th straight night of exactly that, but at least illness is a good excuse.

And I bet you that the squirrels are all saying: "Leave you ALONE? Nah, where's the fun in that???"

Makes me think of the current (#269) Sequntial Art.

Squirrels bounce indeed.

Oh man, do I know those nights. Right at the moment I'm not getting the best of sleep either. Most of this is due to the brain not wanting to shut down with all that I've got to do for work and Marine training coming up. I'm also into that time of year when the bed room gets hot at night and yet is cold in the morning. So I have the window fan (with thermostat) running as I go to sleep sweating and grab the covers in the early morning. Just got to love old houses/heating systems. I hope your nights get better so you're rested.
