Sleeping Beauty, that lucky bitch. (No, not because of the dumb prince).

This is ridiculous. I drank some wine last night in hopes of falling asleep more quickly (and just cause I have a huge bottle and I felt like drinking). Yeah. I fell asleep at around 2 am, woke up a billion times between then and now (6:00 am). I can't get back to sleep. What is going on here??? I didn't drink more coffee than usual yesterday. I did, however, sleep till 1:45 pm. Maybe that's it.

I have been losing a battle with insomnia at least once or twice a week ever since moving to lovely DC. Maybe, my bed is not firm enough. Maybe, I'm at my nervousest state ever. Is nervousest a word? Highly unlikely, but I enjoy butchering the language.

When I was in undergrad, I always got home after midnight, even on days when I had class at 8 am the next day (and a one hour commute to school). My father, a health nut for whom sleep is the most sacred thing in the world, absolutely hated this. He constantly reminded me that not getting enoug sleep has been linked to weight gain, along with a bunch of other crappy things. His favorite cheesy dad line for this issue was/is "there is no waking up beauty." This is supposed to be funny. An allusion to "Sleeping Beauty," if you will. His lameness is funny sometimes, but this particulat phrase has always irritated me, beacuse it doesn't make much sense. Maybe if he said that there's no "sleepless beauty." At any rate, he'll keep saying it even if I offer a better alternative.

I feel like crapola. : (

Maybe I'll hit up the gym. Class isn't till 10. I just began a new workout plan (it's not Kanye's workout plan, though). Boy, are my legs/arms/chest/back/glutes sore as hell! Maybe that's why I can't sleep!

Whatever the cause, I would like a one way ticket out of somnia, cause I'm tired of being in it.

Woah there. That was bad. Lame city. I'm worse than my dad. I'm gonna leave it in here, as a testament to HOW BADLY I NEED MORE SLEEP.

Yada yada yada, I have nothing interesting at all to say (in case you didn't notice from the pointless banter above).

I am extra worthless when I haven't gotten enough sleep. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
