My 3am Blog Post
It’s 3am in Sydney and I can’t sleep.
Predictable really, considering that I’ve touched more timezones than the swine-flu in the last 24 hours.
Apologies in advance, as this will probably be my dullest post ever. I’m using you (the reader) as a selfish means to get to sleep. I’m hoping the act of blogging will exhaust me to slumber, rather like the midnight quickie.
Hey, at least I’m being up-front an honest.
Although I must admit, blogging does engage the creative juices a lot more – sorry to all the romanticists out there.
And you have to use your fingers a lot more when you type.
When trying to sleep earlier tonight, I attempted all the usual. Unfortunately, all made my mind more active and alert.
1. Counting sheep – but then I thought of lamb kebabs and became hungry.
2. Counting backwards from 100 – but once I reached 0, I had a crisis. What now? Do I go back up to 100? Or do I go into the minus numbers? Or should I do it again but count backwards in roman numerals?
3. Staring up at the black ceiling until my eyes fell drowsy – but my hyper-active mind started visualising dark shapes moving around on the ceiling and I freaked out. Were they cockroaches? Or a weird alien blob life-form that breeds on the ceilings of Bondi apartments?
4. Writing down my thoughts – which is what I’m currently doing, electronically. Hence, the reason for this post.
Well, I’m going to give it another crack, after all I have to be in the office in 5 hours to read my expected 300 new emails from the past 2 weeks. I’ll make the next post more interesting, promise.
