Thoughts recorded at a disgusting hour

This accursed blogging has destroyed my already fragile grasp on any sort of a decent sleeping pattern. Although I have not been all that productive recently, rest assured that I am constantly awake at ridiculous times of night, thinking about things I want to talk about on this here blog. And unless I scribble them down on a sheet of paper (as I am doing now), they have entirely left my head by the next morning- when it might actually be somewhat logical to be thinking stuff and writing it down.

I wonder to what extent other bloggers suffer this problem.

I call it blogsomnia.

And I do not like it.

Okay - I am not quite so bad that it keeps me awake. However, I am constantly finding bits of paper and receipts covered with drunken scribings that are totally illegible but I am certain were soooo important to blog about at the time.

Someone told me once to always go to sleep within reach of a notepaper and pen/cil, so I've always done it. It's for when you bolt upright in the middle of the night having a EUREKA! moment, so you will not forget it and put it down to crazy dreaming the next day. Couldn't figure out a puzzle once. Woke at 2am going "got it!" turned on the bedside light, wrote down the solution, and went back to sleep. I didn't remember for about 2 days that I had solved the riddle!!!

Good woman Lottie, none of that "just making neat little memos on my PDA" shite that your bloke appears to go in for. Is it a PDA? I don't even know that that stands for.

MJ, I worry a little about you now.

funnily enough, I do tend to have a pen and paper by my bed, but its only for getting the stuff in my head written so I can get to sleep, waking up is never ever a problem for me.

i i constnatly do this, i mean think of blogging stuff, that would be really good, and inevitably forget it.

I also wrote the best song ever just as i was nodding off.. and thought i'll remember that tomorrow. I didn't

If i blogged even a fraction of the good stuff that comes into my head i would have swept up every blogging award going already and many would worship me as a fairly major deity.
