Night terrors

Awake again at 3:30, I lay in bed for half an hour hoping to drift off, then got up to have a glass of milk and the now obligatory quick blog post.

I feel like running away screaming; except that there's nothing to scream about but my own behaviour, and nothing to run from that I haven't created with my own hands; and furthermore that running away screaming is both foolish and childish, and something of a habit.

You know what needs to be done, fool, so just stand up and do it.

[Updated an hour later] I've paid two months' rent, made a backup of Alberich's important bits, and shall now return to bed. The birds began singing a quarter-hour ago, though the sky is still quite black.

maybe it would make you feel a little better, the running and screaming. i find it's good to follow your impulses especially if they are childish and foolish. going into the woods for a good scream is pretty therapeutic.

Feeling like running away screaming is perfectly normal. Actually doing it, particularly if drunk, naked, down the road, is the problem. That'll get you arrested.

poor udge, hope you sleep better this night. But I know this phenomenon, insomnia, then getting up and doing really really useful things who bring a tiny little peace of mind and then using this for further sleep oh and the advantage of winter is that it is longer darker...insomnia is much more depressing when the sky is already blue at 4am...
