    Don't Make Me Tired... You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Tired... ;)

     Sorry, couldn't resist the bad joke. Really though, I'm a bear when I don't get my sleep. I can't function. The worst is having to get up for an early class and then having to sit stationary throughout the class listening to a lecture. It's so hard to stay awake when you...

    Mmhmm

    I have no problem staying up late, but I need my sleep. But apparently, people who sleep less live longer. Oh well. I'll die sooner but I won't have bags under my eyes!

    Let Sleeping Dogs Lie....

    Everyone who knows me well (and that's pretty much everyone) knows that you'd better have a damn good reason to wake me up if I'm sleeping. Smoke, fire, blood, tornado. Pretty much the only acceptable excuses for interrupting my "me" time. And sleep is highly critical and under...

    Super King

    I am the proud owner of a super king size bed.  It means I can have nearly as much space as I want, yet snuggle up to my beloved when I want too. There's nowhere quite like bed, all I need to find out is how to recreate the feeling when you wake immediately when I go.

    Yes, I Do!

    I am not my best and I'm overemotional (more so than usual), without proper sleep. I use to be part of a web-group online, many years ago, where I worked for a woman (for free) maintaining her sites. She was a slave driver and I only got 4 hours of sleep. :-o To say the least...

    Wake Me If You Dare

    I don't know what it is me and sleep. I need to get my 8 hours or God help me, I think I might murder someone. My ex would tip toe around the house and knew how to open doors and take out pots and pans without waking me. At the worst point in my life when I was taking care...

    Doesn't Everyone?

    All kinds of important things happen while you are sleeping. I think I read somewhere that cell regeneration and hair growth and that kind of stuff goes on while you sleep.  From personal experience I know that if I don't get proper sleep I am not a pleasant person to be around...
