i couldn't fall asleep.

i've been having this weird sleep schedule ever since i moved out at the beginning of this year. i don't have a job at the moment so i have no reason to wake up early. which means i have no reason to go to bed early. which i was fine with until today (or should i say yesterday?) when i didn't even wake up until 4 in the afternoon. and didn't even bother getting out of bed and doing anything until 5 pm. so now, i'm feeling disgusted with myself and set my alarm to 9 in the am. but its already 6:30 as i'm writing this. its hopeless.

anyways, i have this ritual to get to sleep. i have to listen to npr, or as they call it here in oregon opb to get to sleep. i think i like the talk radio to get to sleep. i know my parents listen to kgo (sings the jingle "newstalk 810") when they go to bed. i copied that for a while, then i switched to npr because: 1. its more liberal but not in a liberal talk show host kind of way. more in a liberal arts sort of way. and b) because i can also get the news without the traffic reports every ten minutes on the 8's.

however tonight i was listening to my favorite podcast, the dawn and drew show. i was listening to them last night but unfortunately i fell asleep and didn't hear the end. i'd like to say though, that just because i fell asleep doesn't not mean i don't enjoy the dawn & the drew or the n p r. it is in no way a reflection on either broadcaster. just because i listen to them before i sleep does not mean they are boring. ... skip to the good stuff jojo. so the point i'm getting to is that (i have a.d.d. so you'll have to forgive the tangents) i can't remember. i had two really good dreams last night (one involving janeane garofalo and a tandem bike) that i just can't remember.

maybe i will use this blog for that kind of nonsensical bullshit. i don't even really know who my target audience is for this blog. i'm not really sure if i want to give this address to my friends, and if i do, will they even read it? or willl they just skip over it like i do their (sometimes) petty myspace blog entries. i certainly don't want this place to turn into anything that resembles a myspace or xanga blog. i'm no emo.

i do want to use it for my own purposes though, that you might not even understand. maybe you'll find it interesting if i post random lists like "music i intend to download when i can find it on the nearest torrent site" or "british tv shows i wish they would remake for america but not dumbed down for the american audience". (yes i know mrs. herich told you to put punctuation inside the quotes but i'm a rebel!)

now i've lost my train of thought. but i haven't slept and wasn't that why i named this post insomnesia? [have i used to many of these "()" sorry i can't remember what their called but i know this is inside brackets]
