I keep odd hours, when I was working full time I always woke up early to go to work. I was pretty much my own boss and I worked in shops that didn't have air conditioning. If I start at 4 AM, I had 8 hours in by 12 noon.  It becomes a habit that carries over into winter too.

I know the wife sleeps better after I get up.  I'm not tossing and turning and farting all over the place.

It smells good to me! Embarrassed

I fall asleep watching TV then can't get back to sleep after I get up to turn everything off and go to bed.

Pisses me off!!!!

Sometimes I'll be just drifting off to sleep when my gol durned cat will choose that very instant to take a flying leap across four feet of space from the arm of the chair to the edge of the bed, landing about a foot from my head.

I'd say he weighs around 12lbs.

If you're ever just drifting off to sleep and suddenly a 12lb hunk of meat, bones and fur comes flying through space and lands on the mattress about a foot from your head, it WILL jolt you awake.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Cats Mickey and Mal seem to know what time I get out of bed, and decide that it should be a half hour sooner.  Try as I might, I can't win.  Mal would first meow.  Then he'd rub his face against mine.  Then he'd lick my face.  When all that failed, he'd get on my nightstand and start knocking things off. 
 
Mal doesn't do that these days, as he can't jump onto the bed anymore.  I miss it.

Try falling asleep listening to the radio instead.  I have mine on all night, whether it's tuned to my favorite music station or to my favorite right-wing talk radio shows.

When I fall asleep watching TV, I'm not trying to. I'm trying to watch TV but fall asleep in spite of myself. The reason I can't get to sleep afterwards, is because I just had a nap and am wide awake.

I used to listen to the radio like that, though. I'd put on this really soft, orchestral music and turn the volume way down. Talk radio would probably be good too, though. I'd probably opt for that UFO/paranormal guy out in Arizona though. If he's still on.

I've always suffered from bad sleep habits. One thing I've found to help is if I take me pillow and rearrange myself onto the foot of the bed. But if I forget I've done this I wake up and the whole room is bass ackwards. Takes me a minute to realize the light switch is on the other side.


This has been an o going problem for decades.. I've tried every remedy and just came to the conclusion I'm a weird sleeper.

I should just quit trying to watch the late night talk shows. That's when I always fall asleep. And there's really no reason to sit up and watch anymore anyway. Letterman is gone and the guys who are on now, Fallon, Colbert and Kimmel aren't even funny. But I still just have to scratch that itch for some late night yuks, even if it's just in vain hopes that I'll actually find something to laugh at.

I have to change my routine.

Instead of just sitting there in my chair, I should, as soon as the 11 o'clock news is over, take my meds, check the doors and windows, turn off all the lights, etc, etc, then set the sleep timer on the TV for one hour, then lie down. By the time it shuts off, I should be asleep.

Jimbo, someone said something like,"Jimmy Fallon gets laughs because he LOOKS funny."
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Could be that.

Or it could be that the kind of people who comprise his audience have weak taste in humor and will laugh at anything no matter how unfunny it is to people with an actual sense of humor.

I don't remember when I last had a good nights sleep. My brain can't seem to shut off.

^ I had one of those nights last night.

I'm not sure I slept at all!  It's a very pleasant moment when you know you are drifting off to sleep.
