Ah, insomnia, that excellent condenser of boredom into action. This is what happens when you don't get enough exercise in a few days, you don't sleep! Ah, how wonderful it would be to fade into the nothingness of sleep and wake up refreshed but no, no, it is not to be. Maybe the glass of milk will take effect mid-sentence soon.
<Dave the Dragon lay moodily in his cave and waited for sleep. Nothing happened, he puffed some smoke, and waited some more. The smoke ascended and twirled and finally dissipated. Dave sighed, roused himself and went for a flight.>
It's Friday night, and the Olympic Opening Ceremony has been going on for some hours now in London, at the other end of my turned-off television. The Olympics in London... wow. It's hard to believe, somehow, and the opening ceremony hasn't even been rained off! Today I recorded a podcast with my sister and her friends and it went quite well. We reviewed 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Timecop' and were probably too negative on the former but it is a really hard movie to be positive about. It's mediocre. Sad somehow.
<Clomp von Clomp chuckled mischievously in the middle of the night and fell asleep spontaneously in mid-air. Typical, evil nocturnal masterminds get to sleep at night even if they don't want to.>
Oh boggle, maybe I should get back to trying to sleep now. Maybe do some exercise or jumping of some kind. I wish there was a trampoline here and that this were a sports hall of some kind. Oh well, at least there's no chocolate in the house... oh dear.
Sleep can always happen next month.
