What keeps you up at night? by mrsteabag on 15 November 2009 7:17pm
 
My top selections:
1. Alec, Billy, Stephen and.....Baldwin. WHAT IS THE 4TH BROTHER'S NAME, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD?
2. Would Patrick Stewart think I was too old for him?
3. Orion's snoring.
4.I snap awake at 3:30 am for no discernable reason sometimes and have a bite of a time getting back to sleep.
5. Family issues. My relatives are bat spit looney and I recently became privy to some info that could be a real hand grenade.
How about you, darlings?

Hear, hear for number 2! Though I'd go for Robert Duncan McNeil as well.

I suffer from bad insomnia anyway, but the last two nights its been terrible. At least I got some sleep early this morning.

Not because anything in particular is keeping me awake, my body clock is just shot to hell.

Everything... Mainly my bad back but also the cat, the kids, the feral cat that lives under the house, traffic, Ray coming in and out all night, my brain, my kids oh I said that one, global warming, money (or lack thereof), my kids oops did it again caffeine intake, oh and we have rather awful pillows that need replacing.

*yawn*

I live in the country where there is rarely any disturbance. . . well, maybe the dog barking at coyotes or deer every once ina while. To answer No. 1, mrsteabag, I think the 4th Baldwin's name is Daniel.

My left knee which needs surgery for shredded cartilage and the pain wakes me up every time I need to turn over during the night.

I had surgery on my right knee for the same condition and the right knee is doing really fine but our greedy medical insurance industry, correctly anticipating the eventual need for the same surgery on my left knee, cut me off from any possibility of getting medical insurance and medical care for that and, consequently, for anything else that goes wrong with me. I can't even begin to tell you how angry that makes me. That anger also keeps me awake at nights.

I so envy all of you in the UK and Canada for your health care. Yes, there are problems with it but you do get treated.

1. Drinking Coke in the evening.

2. Writing some new exciting piece of my stories.

3. My cat, Jo (aka Fatty)

4. Listening to metal/rock.

5. When I was depressed earlier this year, I couldn't sleep that well.

And one that shouldn't be forgotten, my dyspraxia is the worst one. No...Wait, Jo is the worst one!

What IS your bed-time,ev? Are you back in Australia or still in our part of the [hemi]sphere in Germany?

Sighthound, sorry about your knee and the insurance bleepwits. I have a friend in a simular situation. Please consider it added to my list.
Kaz,you, too, have been added.
mp_addict19, thanks. I think it's Daniel, too. So that's one thing that can be crossed off the list. :)
