It'll be in this thread... and it'll be a little lame
I feel like I should start thinking about my 50,000th post already ...

Looking forward to your 7,000th.

After I get it done, I'll probably go lie down and try to sneak a couple more hours of sleep in. I'm gonna have a busy afternoon/evening today.

I have two options:

1. Go to bed soon and have a reasonably productive day tomorrow.
2. Stay up and watch the cricket and fuck up any chance of productivity tomorrow.

#2 sounds like a winner.

I've recently broken the habit of staying up all night and then attempting to stay up during the day. It always led to massive crankiness, misery, and often tears by the end of the day. It's just generally a bad idea.

I like my habit of going to bed around 2am. Lately, though, I've been staying up past 3am and that hasn't been good, as I don't like waking up at midday. I feel like I've wasted the day if I miss the whole morning.

Commentator on TV: "on appearance, it gives the appearance ..."

The Department of Redundancy Department approves.

I don't sleep well in general (lots of turning about and waking up in the night) so as a result, I tend to sleep longer to make up for it.

So basically, if I'm not asleep BY 2 AM at the latest, I'm screwed for the morning. This becomes difficult considering my favourite late night show (Conan O'Brien ) doesn't end until 12:35 AM, and it's so awesome that it gets me all awake.




7000 is the next post!

I used to sleep like a fucking log. I've slept through earthquakes, Queensland storms, and all that stuff. Nowadays, though, I tune out sounds I expect but wake up to even the most inconsequential unexpected sounds. It's irritating.

7000:


Like Australia needs rain
Like a town needs a dirty name
I need this thread

Like a chatter needs a room
Hawkmoon
I need this thread

I need this thread

Like innuendo unspoken
Like postcounts so high
Like pretentious music
Like DI
I need this thread

Like logging on
And you don't know where you've been
Like drunk posting
Like caffeine
I need this thread, I need this thread
I need this thread, I need this thread
Oo-hoo, I need this thread, I need this thread

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the globe spins around
I need this thread

I need this thread

Like an airplane rising needs Ian to see
Like U2 fans always need to disagree
I need this thread, I need this thread

Like Alisaura needs rocks
Like a reject needs a box
Like Axver needs trams
Like picspams
I need this thread, I need this thread
Need this thread, I need this thread

I need this thread, oh yes / I need this thread

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the globe spins around
I need this thread

I need this thread




I decided to stop there. The rest of the song is impossible, as Bono already used every word in the English language that rhymes with 'rain'.

I sleep with a noisy fan on to block out noise. I've grown so accustomed to the noise of the fan that if someone turns it off, I'll wake up immediately.

That said, I'm a very light sleeper. When I had my bed in front of the window, a bird singing in the tree outside woke me up. And this was with the fan on. Without it, every car passing by outside would probably wake me up.

Thanks. I didn't know what to do for 7000, and songparodies occurred to me. Dunno what made me think of Hawkmoon 269, but it worked

I know what you mean. In Queensland, I slept with a fan on almost all year round, and every time we had a power cut in the middle of the night, I would wake up straight away and take forever to get back to sleep.

Nowadays, I find I need the fan more for comfort than covering noise. I only sleep well if outside my bed is cold. Summer is made of fail. Right now, I still have my fan on most nights just so that it seems warmer in my bed.

I hope Ali isn't offended by that ...

It was a good idea! I love parodies along those lines. I think I still have some that NSW did during the setlist parties.
