Go to Sleep.

Update:  This thought occurred to me when I was writing an e:mail to a friend tonight…

Thought for the Day:  How much of the fascination with Facebook is because FaceBook plays on people’s desire to reinvent the past?

Just a thought.  Yes, I know it is a social network.  But beyond the people you are talking to daily, those people who contact you after 20 years… why haven’t you had contact before now?

You know how it is – over time your little ones develop immunities to your charming attempts to entice them into going to bed.

You develop counter-strategies.  They develop counter-counter-strategies.  Then you find a MOABB (Mother of All Bedtime Bombs) and think “Hey, I’m f**king on top of it!”  And then the cute little vermin find a way past your fortified defenses and nuke you in retaliation.

And before you know it their boundless energy surpasses yours and you go stark raving bonkers and start thinking Jack Torrance (The Shining) was on to something.

A book is here that won’t fix a damn thing but might make you laugh.  “Go the F**k to Sleep“.

I saw this on FARK and couldn’t resist mentioning it.

Ready?

4 arrested, accused of selling drugs, raccoon meat at Houston car wash

Is selling raccoon meat really so much of a problem that it gets linked in with drugs?

Do they have legitimate raccoon meat farms.  (Shhhhhh – don’t breath a word of it around Bunk Strutts at Tacky Raccoons – I think there’s some sensitivity there but I am totally guessing and base that on nothing at all, really)

Yes, that was a shameless plug for the Obama gets locked out animation I saw at Tacky Raccoons.

The next interesting FARK one is this:

The court ruled in her favor and now she can masturbate at work.

With porn on company computers, no less.  It’s the wave of the future folks.

People don’t usually deserve to get shot.  This guy sure earned it though.  Bitching at someone because they didn’t thank you?  What are you, twelve?

I opened up the door for a gentleman. He walked in, and I quietly said, ‘Why don’t you say thank you for holding the door open?’ – Bitchy Gentleman Jay Rodgers

Arianna Huffington and Cindi Leive say that sleep deprivation is a feminist issue.

Arianna Huffington, the powerhouse publisher of The Huffington Post, and Cindi Leive, the equally indomitable publisher of Glamour, have joined forces to identify women’s sleep deprivation as “the next feminist issue”.

Oh yeah, this ranks up there.

They cite studies that indicate that women are more sleep-deprived than men, including one that says American women are getting 90 minutes less than the seven to eight hours recommended for someone to be well and perform well.

American author Naomi Wolf has taken up the baton in her column in The Times Saturday writing that the pair make a persuasive case that female exhaustion is undermining women’s creativity, judgment, and relationships.

“What does it profit us to win the whole world only to experience it cranky and irrational from fatigue?” she wrote.

Excuse me?  What is it with people thinking that their cause deserves special attention?

I get about 4 hours, maybe 5 hours, of sleep a night.  That’s sleep deprivation.  I’m not going to say that all insomniac pain sufferers should be singled out for kinder treatment or special daily structure or schedules.  Crap, if you are getting less than 6-7 hours a night I don’t care who you are, you should be trying to catch up.  You don’t have to be a woman to be dealing with exhaustion.

Ok, here’s another one – Breast Cancer Awareness Week – I am not taking a thing away from that cause, but I always think “So if you have appendix cancer, eardrum cancer, or kneecap cancer are you somehow not as needful of awareness or recognition?”  Does it really make a difference what kind of cancer if it kills you?  Hell, I say lets find a cure for ALL of them.

I must have a steampunk toilet!

Taking a laser-guided whiz is just way too cool.

I think Cruel Wife will let me have one if I contrive to keep peeing on the toilet seat even when it is in the “up” position.
