The mistress

insomnia is a cruel mistress. She slides out from under the bed and slips under the covers with you. Without hesitation she rises up over the bed, plants a stilleto heel into your temple an starts reciting your rental history, the branches of the evolutionary tree that led to dinosaurs, the best risotto recipes, and so on. Insomnia loves a good list and she doesn’t mind sharing with you all the lists in her head. Bitch.
I had to take the day off, my sleep patterns have been noticibly fucked since last week and it’s easy enough to deal with on the weekend (sit on the couch and knit while reciting along with Star Wars: A New Hope) but weekdays require you to go to work and accomplish things and not make giant mistakes and not fall asleep at your desk.
I doze into dream sleep, have incredibly vivid dreams and then wake up as soon as I slide into deep sleep. Very frustrating, but on the other hand my dreams are more vivid and memorable than usual.
Other than that, not much to report on my end. Went to roller derby last night and finally got to see Dena skating! So much fun. They’re making an effort to ham it up more and show more fighting. It’s funny because there’s one team that’s intentionally breaking rules and starting fakey fights in order to rile up the crowd but they get a little whiney at turnabout. Fair play, girlies, fair play.
It’s time for Empire Strikes Back and hopefully a nap later.
