insomnia, go to hell. ambien is dead to me, and melatonin is awesome!!! i've been taking it for the last few nights in smaller doses and it really works. the trick is to actually take less then the rcommended dose it comes in (usually 3 to 5 mg.) i cut it down to less then 1 mg and it makes a huge difference. it seems odd that a smaller dose would work better, but i guess the lower dose is closer to what your brain naturally produces.

i am at work today. it's a company holiday for e&y, but i ain't a company gal. i'm consultant all the way, and they said we could come in and work (instead of taking the day off unpaid.) i would normally have taken the unpaid day, but i called in sick wednesday and actually have lots to do. besides, a 3 day weekend is enough.

so i am the only one in the office, which is weird. i have the lights off and my shoes off. i am eating cheese, working on my blog, and actually getting some real work done. all the while barefoot! and since i knew no one would be in, i didn't just wear jeans, i wore sweats! and no charity gets $5!!!!

the airshow is this weekend, and the fighter jets are doing practice runs around my building. it makes me so jumpy! (of course, i've had a large cup of coffee and an currently chugging and enviga.) but the idea of an air show is just not appealing to me. a huge crowd in bleachers watching stunt pilots zoom around and risk their lives. and how are war planes supposed to be fun for the family? no thanks.

i heard my favorite bro-in-law went to see rush last night. they are my #2 hated behind (after the doors and before genesis.) a guy at work mentioned having tickets for the show and i, as usual, went off. i started quoting the lyrics to "tom sawyer" and asked how he could sit through that nonsense. i'll add the lyrics to this post, but in tiny font. i gotta go back to work!

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don't put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day's events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

Rush is for band geeks who play drumline. Geddy Lee sings like a Dolphin in heat......

Thing One: While I think I'll still kinda like the song, the lyrics are incredibly bad. Bad, bad lyrics, and I never even knew it.

Thing Two: In Chicago, I lived right on the lake, just north of downtown's waterfront. During the air show my first year there I thought maybe we'd gone to war; that I was somehow just out of the loop, nationally. I mean, who would actually go and sit, on purpose, to watch airplanes flying around?

Thing Three: Oooo, yer fancy blogspot didn't like me using some html!
