Hi readers... Well, it's about 12:20pm (CST), as I write this. I didn't get out of bed until 11:30am (CST).

That's right... I was in bed all morning.

Weird, huh? At least for me. I'm a "morning person" in ways that make other people sick. (Three years of teaching High School MAKES you a morning person. Trust me... Having a class full of 14-15 year-olds at 8:00am is a mind-bending experience) But there IS something that makes even a "morning person" like me, stay in bed till almost noon.

That, my friends, is insomnia. I was still awake at about 5:30am this morning, and I just couldn't get to sleep. I actually heard my mother (yes, My Lady and I live with my mother... Yeah, we can't wait to get out) get up this morning for work, and I finally dropped off.

I HATE when my brain refuses to go to sleep. It isn't something that happens very often to me. I have studied enough esoteric meditation religions, that normally, if I have a problem going to sleep and turning off the brain, I just meditate for an hour or so, and can then relax enough to sleep. However, last night... Nothing was working. Gah.


Yeah, I've been awake for about an hour, and I have nothing really to talk about today. Sorry... I just don't have time to do the "trolling the internet for things that amuse/disgust/or bother" me.

My Lady and I are going to be working on the Motif Radio show today (she's already at it)... I'm co-producing this episode, and am really excited. I've recorded my photographer-friend Brett making comments about contemporary photography using Skype (he's on a Fullbright in Italy) and we're going to be doing a pretty interesting show! Yay! Wonderful thing, Skype. Internet telephony is an amazing technological advance! On Sunday, Fiona spoke with her father in England for an hour, for FREE. Yesterday I spoke with Brett for a half hour, in Italy, for free! This is a revolution, folks.... Get on it soon! You'll notice I have a Skype "CALL ME" button on the right-side column of this blog... Feel free to USE it! It's free! Duh!

Okay... I'm off... Sorry about the naff-ness of today's blog entry.
