I keep reading a lot of crap about how Americans are all sleep-deprived.  I think that for years sleeping has carried some kind of stigma.  If you were sleeping, it meant you were unproductive and not getting things done.  It also meant you weren't cool. Cool people stay up all night.  As I see it, I get more done in the daytime if I've had adequate sleep at night!  I go to bed early (I'm usually so exhausted by the end of the day that I pretty much just fall asleep early), wake up at 5:15 to hit the gym, head to work, do my evening errands, eat dinner, read a bit, go to bed.  I have great energy and I don't need coffee to get me going. 

I had an interesting dream last night.  I have recently lost a makeup bag that contained several useful and expensive items.  In my dream it was Christmas or my birthday or something like that and two of my relatives (including my late grandfather who was still alive in the dream) gave me makeup to replace the stuff I lost.  The colors were all wrong though. 

It inspired me though.  For my next birthday I should ask for gift certificates!

made me wonder, if someone were to buy you makeup in the wrong color, could you return it?

I always found that "stay up late" thing funny.
it doesn't matter how late you stay up, it matters how much sleep you get. (I think, anyway)
so you can stay up as late as you want, and you can sleep as long as you want.
there's this presumption that everybnody gets up at 5:15 to go to the gym?

Dan has given up of the stupid apnea machine.

"I wasn't sleepy and irritable during the day before. Now I am. I hate this thing. I don't think I have a problem."

I told him, "Honey, I have no problem telling doctors to get bent. You go for it."

girthta - Maybe his apnea is not that bad. It's made a marked difference in my life..

Oh, I don't dispute that there's an actual affliction. My best friend has experienced the miracle of those sleep machines, as has my father. I just dispute that my husband is in need of therapy for a problem he has no symptons of.

Honestly, I think the sleep people just said, "Ah, he's fat and he snores... Sleep apnea." and rubber stamped him. We never saw any test results and his diagnoses was given over the phone.

Sometimes doctors are totally guessing. Ever seen an episode of House? I bet that's pretty close to the truth in doctoring.

Girthta - get the results from the test. I got them and there was really no question. Waking up 75 times per hour is a dead giveaway. So was the utter lack of REM Sleep..

As to House.> Great show. I love that.

House is without a doubt the best medical show ever. House is an amazingly complicated character. Who would have thought he liked monster trucks?

Ford, the brain acts differently late at night whether you're awake or asleep, so although overall hours of sleep do count, which hours you get sleep also makes a difference.

Yeah, I'm with Dan on this. He had absolutely no sleeping problems until he got the machine. I have seen apnea and I know what it looks like. He never showed any of that as far as I saw.

*shrugs* IMO, he's worse now with the machine. If he wants to stop and tell the docs to get bent, I happen to agree with him. In his words, "They're just throwing all the high blood pressure bullshit at me. Fact is, I'm fat and heredity. I have to do what I can the rest is just marketing."

I think he's right about that.

House rocks. I love that show. Hugh Laurie is a really great actor, I was at first scared that he was oging to be on a doctor show, but I'm happy to see it turn out so well. There are also several other actors on there that I like and I enjoy seeing again.

Omar Epps (used to be on ER until they rolled his character under a train)
Robert Sean Leonard whom I haven't seen since Dead Poet's Society
and Lisa Edelstein who was a brilliant transsexual on Ally McBeal.

Girty - I felt the same about Robert Sean Leonard. I knew who he was the moment I saw him.. And I was like.> Damn I really haven't seen him since Dead Poet's Society.. I forgot that she was the transsexual on Ally.. But you're right. She was. Completely and TOTALLY forgot.

All in all, they're a very good cast that interacts in multiple amusing ways.

Yeah, She was very convincing on Ally (that was before Ally went real bad)

I even thought her bone structure and stuff lent her well to that role.

T - For the first 2 or 3 years. Yes. Then it not only jumped the shark.. But it also jumped into the pool and was totally consumed by it.

I suppose it depends upon the television show, though.

He might not mind if it were the Playboy channel, for example.

I've still got the scars, both physical and mental.
