  1. I, personally, blog. Like I do every day at 3:30 in the morning when I can’t sleep. I love your list; now I know why no one will let me be Queen for a day!

    May you be more successful in your attempts at dreamland this night.

  2. My, what lovely doodles!

    Seriously, the sleep deprived brain is an interesting place. My worst fits of insomnia happen on business trips. I have the worst time sleeping in hotels. There have been times where I’ve taken a rental car out on a long drive at 2:00 AM. When staying some place without a car, I go on long, rambling walks with my camera. Sometimes I read, but the words have trouble sticking.

    One of the worst things ever is noticing the sky turn pink in the pre-dawn glow that is a really long night of not sleeping. Yeah, little Teddy might have some troubles around then.

  3. man, i wouldnt call those doodles! those are 1000x better than anything ive ever drawn.

    330am used to find me reading or writing. 2 summers ago i watched a lot of asian cinema, caught up on the korean. last summer i mainly was walking downstairs to get the pregnant wife some food or drink. and this summer, i am either putting the baby back to sleep or trying to get back to sleep myself HA!

    • I have four kids. I know what it’s like having to get up constantly for something. Thankfully, the youngest is now five and sleeps through the night most of the time. But parenthood is rough on the sleeping schedule for those early years.

  4. I woke around four this morning, on the couch from a long day of reading, typing, and drinking, and found that I could not get back to sleep. So, instead of wasting a whole bunch of time tossing and turning, I got up and showered, and headed out to Wawa. Leila and I enjoyed ‘Wawa breakfast in bed’, consisting of breakfast sandwiches, hashbrowns, tea and coffee, at about 5:30am. It was great.
    That drawing is excellent! Stuff like that blows me away.
