No sleep. Literally, no sleep. I've been awake now for ~25 hours. And now I have to stay awake until at least midnight (~37 hours), or this one lost night will spiral into several.

Filthy fucking weather out there. The sun did not rise this morning. I lay on the chaise in the middle parlour and watched the sky turn a lighter shade of lead. Currently, 48˚F.

Yesterday, I don't know. I worked until one ayem proofreading and attending to other details on Black Helicopters and the Big Manuscript that it accompanies. Then, no sleep. Up at five, when I made that last entry. Then work on an introduction. Then another failed attempt at sleep. I finally surrendered at about seven ayem and worked another four hours on the mss. until Spooky woke about eleven. Numbers, numbers, numbers; blah, blah, blah.

If we're lucky, there's no more than six or seven more hours work remaining on these things, and then I can make them go away.

I'm ill. I'm pretty much delirious. And I have to focus and think clearly.

Red Pen Strokes,
Aunt Beast

maybe something is in the air. I've been having some trouble with sleep myself, and my usual surefire ways to get me sleeping are not working. Hope your day is a good one and that you get good sleep tonight.

Didn't sleep well either. Think it's the time of year.

Or the Mayan apocolypse. ^_~

We're having a miniature ice storm. I appreciate this aesthetically in that it allowed me to look at rowan berries encased in ice as I walked home half an hour ago, but I'd rather not have been out in the damp and freeze in the first place.

Want a second pair of eyes on Black Helicopters?

Ugh. I hope you manage to get some rest tonight. And that the grey goes away soon, both there and in LA.

Several days of trouble with sleeping here too. We're all in a club we didn't know we had joined. May rest find your bed.

This is very tantalizing! Can't wait to hear the identity of this collection that "Black Helicopters" is accompanying!

No sleep sucks.
Sounds like overwork/worry/stress getting on your last nerve.
And refusing to go away and let you rest.
There are all the folk remedy things: hot milk, warm bath, no caffeine after 3, and so on.
Sometimes they help, sometimes not.
Hope it is going better tonight.
