This post is brought to you by Insomnia

I am: really growing tired of keeping my mouth shut when I see someone say something so incredibly stupid.

I think: people need to start employing a little independent, critical thinking for themselves.

I know: that social media is as much a blessing as a curse.

I want: summer to die a quick death. It’s barely begun and already its been hell.

Speaking of the heat, when barbecuing tonight (seafood), there was a lizard out there that would not budge. It literally looked like it was waiting for us to give it something. It was really hot, so I thought I'd just set a saucer of water out for it.

And well, that lizard seemed pretty happy lapping up that water so.... mission accomplished.

These things used to scurry away from us so quickly, but lately they just hang around. I SWEAR they're training us to set water out for them. Oftentimes, when I water the flowers the lizards are out there with me.

Which Abby LOVES. She had quite the grand time chasing one around tonight. (Although I don't think she appreciated me telling her to leave the poor thing alone because, knowing Abby's personality she just wanted to make a new friend).

I have: no idea what to say for “I have,” so I’m just gonna move on to the next.

I dislike: pushy people when it comes to religion or politics. I’m a grown adult and can think for myself, thank you very much.

I also dislike that scorpions keep getting inside the house lately. Usually the Demon spray is wonderful at getting rid of them, but for some reason it isn't working right now.

I miss: when my niece and nephew were little and we shared such a tremendous, magical bond.

I fear: that as much as I love Disney, Bob Iger is ruining it by catering to the rich and charging people for things that used to be free. (Example: Prime viewing spots for the parades).

I feel: sometimes a little lost at sea without an oar.

I hear: music playing because right now I'm listening to the song below.

I can't help it, but I love it! It's always been a calming melody to me. Perhaps if I listen to it often enough, I'll fall asleep.  photo zzz_zpst6husyxw.gif

I smell: corruption in our government that’s against the American people. It feels as if we’re not even in a Constitutional Republic anymore.

I crave: creativity and sleep.

And now that I think of it, a cappuccino.

I search: for the meaning of life but in the end the Universe always responds with “Return to Sender.”


I wonder: why it is that a lot of the smartest people usually counter that intelligence with a lack of common sense.

I regret: that I still haven’t found my calling.

I love: my furkids!

I also love what I saw outside the window tonight. To quote one Sophia Petrillo, "Picture it -"

The stars were shining in a sea of black... (It gets really dark out here)... and in this one particular spot in the distance there's lightning. (Probably heat lightning). It went on for a long time and never seemed to move. It just looked so pretty seeing the stars and lightning together like that. Apart from that one thundercloud, the rest of the sky was nothing but blackness and twinkling stars.

I really wanted to sit out there and watch it, but I'm a scaredy cat about being out there at night. (Snakes).

I care: for things and some people far more than I should, but I try to hide that.

I am always: awoken by Abby at around 4 am every morning now.

I worry: that my sweet Abby sometimes thinks I’m her slave. When she wants something these days, she is very vocal. (Of course, to be fair she might have learned that from Izzy).

I sing: Disney songs to the furkids, but they don’t seem impressed. They’re a tough audience.

I argue: well on paper, but not in person.

I write: nothing at all these days.

I wish: I had a time machine.

I listen: to music primarily on my laptop these days. It’s difficult getting good reception on the radio around here, and the one station that I sometimes listen to always play the same exact songs.

At present, Lee Marvin has been replaced with Gregorian.

And after that it will probably be the following:


That tv series had some of the prettiest music. I also loved "Arthur and Gwen's Theme," and then "Lancelot Leaves." They sound melancholy, but sometimes I love sad music.

I don't understand: why in the hell there are “safe spaces” on some college campuses.

I am scared: these ridiculous, infantile “safe spaces” exist only as an attempt to indoctrinate the most gullible minds to blindly accept socialism.

I need: to paint my bathroom because I am tired of the walls looking like a band aid.

I am happy: that I got through this entire blog post. It was a complete waste of time, and actually quite negative, but what else does one do when inflicted with insomnia?

I can’t channel Pollyanna all the time and I don't take sleeping pills.

So I tried listening to calming music, but that lead to listening to almost everything under the sun.

Guess who won't be catching any ZZZZzzzzz's tonight.



Only the CUTEST song in the world!!! I love the lyrics.


I love this song just as much now as I did waaaay back when in high school. I think it was during our junior year that my best friend and I saw them at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We had pretty good seats and even saw them rehearsing. During the concert one of the band members singled me out in the crowd. During one of their songs, he pointed at me and said “Yeah I’m talking to YOU, baby!”

It was… weird. Photobucket Of course, I wasn’t obsessed with the band members themselves so I thought it was just funny. I laughed at it back then and I still laugh at it now.


Boy, these songs date me as well. 1991.

Day-um! They're still timeless. It makes me want to jump out of bed and dance around the room like a chemically imbalanced person. C&C had some great upbeat music.


And you couldn’t go wrong – EVER – with George Michael. I still say that man was one of the best recording artists of our time. He had some great music back in the 80’s and 90’s. When I heard that he passed away, it felt so shocking to me. It felt surreal, like when Princess Diana died.

What I mean by that is that for practically my entire life these two have been in the media so much, and when the day arrives that they’re gone… it really feels unnatural.



Well hell. It’s official. Now I’m never going to fall asleep. Nothing beats Pompeii.



  1. Isn't it strange that you and I are at opposite ends of the pole on politics and religion and yet...........we still wonder about the same things. P.S. 10 mg of Melatonin (natural) at bedtime, works wonders.

  2. thankfully, I don't really have insomnia. sometimes, after I get up, to 'tinkle' during the night, I don't go right back to sleep. but know, that's not real insomnia.

    so many of those things... that 'bug' you..... ahhh yes!! I hear you. and they make me crazy tooooooooo!

    your word picture was lovely...... -happy sigh- you are probably out in the country far enough, that you don't have as much light pollution. lucky you..... and you can more appreciate the night sky...
