DU Insomniacs Check In
Edited on Wed Jul-14-04 02:58 AM by Angelus
Whassup everyone. Angelus checkin' in at 1:30 AM CST.

My day was horseshit and very stressful. I got this email from my brother today, and apparently he's having some severe problems with his antidepressants, so tomorrow I'll be staying with him for a few days until he feels better. He's been really down lately and he just doesn't care about anything anymore. So, with me being there, I hope he cheers up. I'm also going to bring him to the doctor's office tomorrow. Hopefully he can help. :shrug:

How was your day?

PS: Another question: What is your song of the night? Mine: Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under The Bridge

Edit: Punctuation

5. I'm here. Not doing a damn thing.
Sorry about your brother. I've been there before and it's not fun. I hope the doctor can help him out.

7. I've been there too.
When I took Paxil, it made me feel the way he does. I should've known it would've done the same to him as it did to me. We're identical twins, so I would think Paxil would react the same with him as it did me. :shrug:

8. Not quite an insomniac
I just fell asleep too early and woke up again.

Today sucked for me as well. My assistant is on vacation, as is my big boss. I'm buying them both lunch when they get back. Work will continue to suck this week, I predict.

Song of the night: What Is Hip by Tower of Power.

12. Good day, great night
My Michael Moore column came out today (not here, unfortunately) and I discovered this evening that Mike has a link to it from his website! I couldn't believe it. So, I'm a happy guy.

My Column at Michael Moore's web site.

I'm watching Casino right now, and if I play some music, it'll either be Venus Hum or Red Flag.

15. Awww shit...
I forgot about the all-star game. DAMNIT! I wanted to see Joe Nathan of the Twins play. :(

Oh well. I'll probably catch it next year. :(

16. It was an ok All-Star
My future husband Derek Jeter went 3-3, so that was cool.
Roger Clemens BOMBED- he gave up 6 runs in the first inning :D
The NL just can't compete powerwise to the AL...
It was entertaining, but more importantly, it distracted me for 3.5 hours.

20. Yeah and Piazza was his catcher
Seriously, I thought the world would've been negated if that ever happened...but we're still here so I guess not :D
Clemens got DESTROYED. God, the HRs he gave up were just flat out BOMBS.

18. I'm only 18...
and can't get to sleep at all this summer! I could easily without trying stay up all night and never go to sleep. I usually have to force myself into bed at 5am trying to fall asleep, but just end up rolling around miserable and uncomfortably and trying to pass the time thinking of meaningless crap until 8 or 9 rolls around and i might pass out, or the sunshine and birds chirping will just get me up again. *le sigh*

songs of the night>>>

"JENNY WAS A FRIEND OF MINE" by: The Killers

&

"CARBON KID" by: Brian Molko of PLACEBO (aka my favourite band)

19. Sounds like me...
I'm 22 and I can't sleep worth shit at night. I'm always sleeping during the day.

Oh well. I guess I fit with my DU screen name really well. ;)

22. watering the lawn, the once a week process.
Drought restrictions.

Applied for a ... job today. Mr. Politicat told me over the weekend that if I want to trade in the gas guzzling suburban he's had for 5 years and my hyundai (which is nearly out of warranty) I have to go back to work.

Since I really want the bio-diesel Jetta and the Prius, it's back to the salt mines of technical writing or curing neurosis or teaching world history to bored 13 year olds.

Gack.


Politicat

23. my family wants a prius...

24. yep. that's the other thing....
that's why the bio-diesel jetta comes first.

I can make my Hyundai last (which was the most efficient car on the market when we bought it) until the prius comes in....

18 month waiting list here, and we're considered a "priority" location, since they never, ever collect dust in the parking lot here in Boulder County.

Good luck - I hope you get one.

27. Woke up at 2:30 AM CST
I fell asleep around 11:30. This summer's sucked so far, seeing as how I can't fucking sleep in if my life depended on it. Every morning I get up at 6:45 sharp - it doesn't matter if I went to sleep at 8:00 PM or 4 in the morning. :( :(

Song of the night? Led Zeppelin - The Crunge.
