Tell me what time it is where you are, how soon you have to get up for work, and what you're doing with your sleepless "found" time. Extra points for amusing descriptions of how you feel right now.

Oh. My turn first? Right:

-- Closing in on 2:30 AM.
-- I don't have work tomorrow, thank goodness.
-- I just read up on how to get my employer to auto-deposit my paycheque in two bank accounts instead of one.
-- My eyeballs feel like peeled testicles rolled in paprika. What is it about the combination of insomnia and a computer screen that makes you forget to blink?

It's 5:30AM now, but I've been up since about 2:30 (which is pretty routine for me).

Watched two episodes of Leverage.
Wrote a brief memo.
Played a little Diablo III.
Hung around AW a bit.
Read a couple of news sites.
Thought through some aspects of my WIP and two programs I'm writing (but didn't do any actual writing or coding).
Now I have to do my daily duty as alarm clocks to the non-insomniacs.

Insomnia: The gift of unproductive time.

I was awake around 4:00 AM... :flag:

Heard some guy on the radio talking about:

1. An "October Surprise" coming out of Iran

2. The fact that the "powers that be" want Obama re-elected so that Jeb Bush can come along in four more years to "clean up his mess."

3. Gas prices getting even higher and the possibility of food and water shortages

Yep, really got my day off to a positive and upbeat start (NOT!)
