i am used to being unable to sleep from anxiety. i should be able to handle this. i hope tonight my book on tape does the trick...

But I am extremely morose to find a livejournal deletion has occurred. Someone who usually makes my day just with their fantastic writing. I don't always comment. I usually feel dwarfed by the creative mind behind the words. I always learn something. It would be selfish to say "Joe, please come back. I miss you already." It would be also a great deal strange, because I've never met this person. But nevertheless it would be true. I still have a window up with a recent post that I wanted to re-read. You moved me! I wanted want to be your real friend.

today i actually cooked something. and people were not, so far as i know, poisoned or even disgusted. i wish i could have stayed longer, because i was just beginning to feel socially at ease when i left - but as i haven't been to work in a week i had better be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed tomorrow to make up for all my lacking attendance. thanks to tonight's potluck participants - damn, everything was fantastic.

when i'm feeling blue and like i am going crazy, i think about the movie bowfinger. K.I.T. keepittogether keepittogether...

I've had that happen, and it's really sad. you look forward to seeing this stranger, and genuinely miss them when they're gone from your life all of a sudden. I hope it's only temporary, and that he's well

random journal deletions are never good.

I know about the random journal deletions. I have had one friend on my list disappear and re-appear. So maybe you're friend will come back...

I love Bowfinger! I say that all the time "keepittogether keepittogether"
I will have to watch that tonight.

So what did you cook?

A recipe my mother calls "Tom Jones Shrimp". I have no idea why.

A mystery!
Hmmm. Is it not unusual? Is it fast as lightining?

*sympathetic noises* :-S

I've found that melatonin often helps with my godawful sleep problems. When I use it I take one 3mg tablet, though I just read this weekend that half a tablet should be just as effective (it's a hormone, so less is good on general principles). It's not a sleeping pill per se; it just makes you feel a little more like going to sleep. From what I've read there aren't any side effects or contraindications.

Benadryl also works well, but leaves me woozy when I wake up.

I will second the melatonin idea! I usually use it Sunday nights since my sleep schedule gets all messed up on the weekends.

Also, your food was excellent!!!!

Telf also says to try Valerian, but I'm weird about taking things, I'm always worried it will somehow screw me up worse.

And thank you! I am glad you liked it.

Melatonin's pretty harmless, and it definately works form some people. The sole side effect I have encountered (or heard about) is an increase in vivid dreaming.

The shrimp were super yummy! I'm really happy I got a chance to see you.
Nov. 30th, 2003 06:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! And I am too. It shouldn't be so long. I want to have people over but my life has been chaotic of late. I am sure it will happen sooner or later. :)
