Stupid Things That Keep Me Awake at Night

The plot problems that made me stop watching Alias.

What are the statistics on Hippo Attacks?

Things I need to pack for a trip we're taking in October.

Why are my knees touching? I don't want my knees to touch.

The plot of the book I'm reading.

Grocery Lists

That one scene in Eclipse that pisses me off. (I've actually lost multiple nights of sleep over this)

Strategy for playing Roller coaster Tycoon.

Remembering embarrassing things I said or did years ago.

Clever things I should have said in conversations past.

What keeps you awake at night aside from the normal things?

I too had to give up on Alias after a few seasons. WHat scene in Eclipse keeps you up?

Roses said...

I haven't been kept awake by thoughts of Roller Coaster Tycoon, however, I have had many interruptions to my vacuuming because of it. ("I can build the cue through the uprights! Oo, I'll go try that now.")

And the knees touching? Yeah. You can fix that by growing your thighs so your knees can't physically touch anymore.

Oh, don't thank me. I'm here to help.

I also remember embarrassing things from the past (great way to stay awake! :P). But most of the time I keep myself awake by thinking I need to sleep, which turns into some sort of weird reverse psychology where I end up not falling asleep at all…

Rye-I do exactly the same thing

Roses-lol I'm working on the thighs

Colleen-It's the scene where Charlie should loose his Dad card. I don't care how much you like the kid if some boy just forces any sort of physical attention on your daughter there is no way in the universe your reaction is "good for you." I like the books but that part irritates the heck out of me.

especially when your daughter hurts her hand in the process!

I hate embarassing things keeping me awake. Does everyone have this problem, we should take a poll!

Mostly random thoughts keep me awake, which is why i focus them with tv in the background. :)

Exactly! Dad card revoked you fictional character you. They really are addictive books though.
