Zombie, It's the New Black

What's up with the zombies? They are every where these days. Ah well, perhaps an infusion of the undead into our culture will distract us from those dead horses we're still beating.

Hmm...zombie horses.

I'm trying my best to do an accurate zombie impression. Insomnia has reared its ugly head. Spurred on by a nasty cold and fretting over a situation I can do nothing about.

I think I've not slept more than three hours in row for the last six days. And last night was spent tossing and turning and telling my brain to just STFU already and be quiet.

I tried meditation. I tried relaxation. I tried counting backwards from 100. I tried singing 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall. I tried drugs. I tried listening to infomercials.

But alas, I managed to doze off for my prescribed three hours (10:30 pm to 1:40 am), then awoke to toss and turn until 4 am when I gave up and watched an episode of "The World's Most Exciting Police Chases". Thor and Loki enjoyed it.

So I am up at 5 am, having coffee and a peanut butter sammie. I will endeavor to attend a class I have missed twice already at work this morning from 8 am to 1 pm. That's going to be interesting.


Loki sez: The problem with you humans is you try to sleep all at once. You should take 12 naps a day like we do.

Hang in there. I hate the endless tape loop of anxiety.
