I had an idea, then i forgot it. Runaway Brain Musings.

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, "Where have i gone wrong?" Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night." -- Charles M. Schultz

I'm back to waking up at 3 or 4 am with that Runaway Brain. You know the Runaway Brain? It happens after i wake up, usually after a weird dream where i am either lost in the hallways at schools, or i've lost some important material thing (most recently not only a boarding pass, but my whole purse and i only realized it as i was getting on the plane), or i'm falling off a bridge for a very long distance ( i always wake up as i'm falling).

My dreams suck....

Anyway the Runaway Dream goes like this:

1. Damnit, i forgot to call Sarah W. on her birthday or at least email her. ...I am a terrible friend.

2. How could i forget when i saw it on Facebook?

3. I wish Facebook was never invented.

4. I probably should dump ______ fill in the blank with whatever Facebook friend posted something stupid, like about politics or some fetus baby thing.

5. I really need to check my online banking tomorrow...

6. Oh no, did i pay the utility bill yet?

7. I hope i didn't offend.... fill in the blank ______________ (for anyone i was out with the night before.)

8. I don't like our kitchen tile. I think we should pull it up and put down lighter bigger tiles.

9. I wonder how much it would cost to scrape off our popcorn ceiling?

10. Does our popcorn ceiling have asbestos?

11. Maybe we should just buy a new house?

12.  But what if my WEA pension goes in the toilet, given the way unions are starting to join the Post Office, 8-track, cassettes and cds, newspapers, and landlines.

13. I need to get a job after retirement so i have purpose.

14. Or not.

15. I hope we don't really owe too much in taxes.

16. Maybe i should write a book instead of blogging.

What do YOU think about when you can't sleep?

Notes to Self: 
Sunset: 5:27 pm
High temp: 46 degrees
All time blog views: 39,762
Weird thing about blog stats: This week my top viewed page was from Aug. 16, 2009 entitled "Rules I have for myself". It got 57 views and it's an old post that is not normally in the top. (Bad Boyfriend always wins that one.)
Shout out: louie? louie?

This quote comes from a book journal titled "I can't sleep!" from one of my two best friends. (julie who posts here infrequently as jj.)

I don't have any trouble going to sleep but I need to train myself to go to bed before midnight.

I say my prayers, make sure the dog isn't taking up more room than he's allowed, and most nights fall right off. If I've had a lot of liquid, there's a good chance I'll get up and go to the bathroom.

Hey a-bunny! I used to love being more nocturnal. But now i fall asleep on the sofa at 9:00 and by the time i go to bed after washing my face i am awake. So now i wash my face before i plop on the sofa. It helps getting back to sleep. It's the waking up hours after going to sleep.

In other news let me just say that i am glad Valentine's day is over. All the flower photos and gushing about their honeys is BORING on my Facebook page.

Did anyone see the quentin tarantino spoof Djesus Uncrossed on SNL? It was pretty funny and i'm sure they got tons of messages from outraged folks.
