My insomnia is back. Worse than the last episode, not as bad as the time before just yet.
After years of this, I have learned that many things that SEEM like a brilliant idea while in the midst of my sleep deprivation are not as awesome once I’m able to sleep again.
At one point, I started making a “List of Things That Seem Like A Good Idea But Possibly Aren’t — Check Back After Getting Sleep” lists.
Today, Office Mom, which is like being the RA for a bunch of socially awkward, raucous group of college kids away from home for the first time, told me I should clear my brain by writing one of my silly stories. I’m fresh out of silly, but I’ll share my list from this bout of insomnia. The list thus far:
Pajama Work Pants — they’re dressy enough for work, but you don’t have to change when you get up. Possible problem in knowing when the official clothes changing time comes around.
The Talk Back App — an app that lets you reply to the often stunningly bad CNN breaking news push notifications. Because sometimes, I think they need my feedback.
Where In The World Is The iPhone 5, Tim Cook? board game. Pretty self explanatory. Possible problem: No one ever wins and everyone leaves unhappy with their new gadget.
FaceTime on the bases– Fans could FaceTime with guys stuck on base, waiting for a hit. Possible problem: Pretty much everything.
Everybody Poops & Tweets — A bathroom book of hilarious tweets to read in the bathroom. Possible problems: NONE I CAN THINK OF
Note: this list is subject to change at any moment. It all depends on how long I go without sleep. I’d say check back, but after that last idea, I don’t think it could get any better either!
