postcards from the edge


It's a surreal snapshot of my life...


I've always been an early to bed kind of gal, but as I write this it's midnight and I'm wide awake. For like the hundredth night in a row. All of the reasons why I need to a) go to sleep or b) finish packing or c) love on my dog who has been giving me the fish eye for days , fade away. I think I'm actually going to bow to the inevitable on this one. For months I've stressed out about the fact that I can't fall asleep. I think I'm just going to give in and chalk it up to a life experience. I sleep like a dead person when I finally drift off. For now, that's going to have to suffice. The control queen is surrendering her crown.


Evidently, my mother (Altaglow) and Peter (WT) are throwing it down. Damn. I guess it was his comment about the mother/daughter menage a trois that pushed her over the edge. I was less bothered, figuring that his last experience with Belle and her mother had whetted his appetite. Either way, I plan on staying out of it. My mom sounds like a pushover (but is in fact the exact opposite) and Peter comes off like an asshole (but is in fact the exact opposite). May the one with the biggest cojones win.


I'll still be posting from LA. Just maybe not every day. It's all part of the laid back, non-control freak RC. God knows I won't go two weeks without blogging. I'm sure I'll have lots of fun stuff to talk about. At least I sure hope I do.


And now...I'm off to finally pack.

Have a wonderful time! And think of us lesser mortals shivering in the English climate that has gone seriously wrong!

Altaglow said...

Cojones! Cojones you say? I'm telling you ovary power is where its at--and, even when they're a litte rusty, can still be a throw down winner.

What? WT goes looking for trouble. He posts sexy pictures of himself and then gets down to some moderately smutty talk and expects to @#XX2 off and/or shock ladies in the audience. I, of course, just think he's sexy, darling and has a great command of the language. Come on and beat me up, big boy!

LOL! GAP says I stress every time I'm getting ready to go on a trip - and I can't sleep when I'm stressed!

Maybe it's all the fun you'r having on this vacation that's making you sleepless??

laurie said...

i have no idea what you're talking about, but i'm just going to put it down to (your) lack of sleep.

have a great trip.

early stage of menopause gave me insomnia.

I'm either sleeping better or just walking around in a daze

WT said...

Ooooh Alta! You're so naughty, but unfortunately I'm not really into BDSM, so I'll pass on the whole 'beating you up' deal. I'm up for a golden shower though...

Cojones?? More like mexican jumping beans!

WT said...

I wonder what Devon's Ick meter will read on that one...

oops, got it wrong. Must be tired like RC!

WT, golden shower? There isn't an ick meter made that can handle that one. Makes me want to go take a shower... not that kind!

Flowerpot said...

Have a great time RC. I to have been havign sleeping problems for months now and it is NOT GOOD so I do sympathise.

Altaglow said...

WT, It took me a while to answer, sorry. I read your message and one thing leading to another I did something unfortunate to me monitor while trying to give it a good scrub down. Please, Let's start over and be the kind of friends who keep their more obvious weirdnesses to themselves. Deal?

WT said...

So you have that problem with screen too? I though it was just a guy thing.

CrazyCath said...

Hope you have a great time. And if you work out the hour at this end of the globe, you will see that I often post or comment at ungodly hours. I am the same as you and have thrown in the towel also. Relinquished control. For now.
When I sleep, I sleep like the dead too. It's just the getting to sleep...

Groovy Mom said...

I feel your insomniac pain. I have, for years now, trouble falling asleep almost every single night. And then sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. It stinks.

Have fun on your trip!

staying up late kills me the next day. but while I am staying up late, I love it. If that makes sense. Good luck!

jettied said...

I don't sleep either!! and I usally every other nite take an advil pm...but being pregnant no I don't!! so lots of sleepless nites!!

CrazyCath said...

I hope you have a great time and get to relax. Don't worry about the sleep thing. It'll come.

Obviously come over when you like, but...
If you get near a computer on Tuesday 5th, have a look at my post because there'll be an award for you. I'll be away too so it's a scheduled post for 1am Tuesday (my time zone!)

Akelamalu said...

I just got back and you're going away! Have a great time and come back refreshed. x

ped crossing said...

Aren't you back yet? Have you gone AWOL? Are you all tan and relaxed and ready to resume life?

Hope it was an excellent vacation. :)
