insomniac session #1

I document here the fact that it is 2 AM and I am quite wide awake. Nothing is wrong. I am not worried about anything in particular. My brain is just busy. Thinking about:

work, kids, my moblog , my partner, the volcano, learning stuff (CNET courses) and just surfin the web.

This feels like a waste of time. To document this sleeplessness. But who knows perhaps this is a pattern and by noting it here I can understand why I am so energetic so late (or is that early?).

There I was flipping channels when I came across the local Public Access station (SCAN TV). It was showing the latest episode of Goddess Kring. I had never seen this before and since it was this women sitting in what was apparently her bathtub with her nose up in the camera it was rather curious. I watched with amazement as she rambled on about dozens of subjects from Johnny Cash to her relationships to singing goofy songs. It felt like she was simply there trying to fill up air time.

It didn't take long to determine that this was exactly what she was doing. Filling each second with noise. I am sure some of it made sense, but unfortunately I clearly missed that part. This "show" was the prompting to turn off the TV and find some better way to spend these wakeful hours.

I turned to this blog.

Suddenly, I realized that here I am just filling the time rambling on about life or something like it. Wait! That was what I was just watching and listening to. Wasn't it? Yes, I am behind a screen not in my tub. {fear of electrocution I suspect}. But none the less I ramble on. Babbling from one subject to the next. Randomly spilling my consciousness (let's hope) onto the "page". Think about the billions and billions and billions of bits of information that are placed into cyberspace, the air, space and the lot. Pretty darn amazing. Oh sorry, I ramble on.

Fortunately for you, you too can switch the channel or turn off the transmission at a whim. Good for you.

Good night, good morning and good day.
