Shhh....

fucking insomnia

It is 3:30am. Why am I awake now when I went to bed at 10:30, WHY!?!?! Fucking jetlag. This also happened last night. And in Italy, I woke up at 3am (their time) almost every night. I'd like to think that it is because I have evolved and now need less sleep than I used to, but somehow, I just don't think that is the case. Harumph.

Oh, and hey, everybody needs to go take my poll, as currently Lishe and Choa are at a dead heat. I can get one or the other after not spending all that money in Italy, but not both. (Not yet.) inkwraith, silensy? When are we going to do our Luts order?

Thank you, ohani, for the photos of us at Disneyland! I especially like the one where I am in my "I am a saint and I am holy" pose with the planter in the background making it look like my halo has slipped off, heh. Also the one with the Dumbo statue and the one of me sticking my tongue out over torrye's shoulder. Heh. Ooooh, and the crazy hat! I still want that hat. And a heffalump!

I would post pictures of Italy, but Mark stole my cameras straight off and his computer isn't on so I can't pull them to mine over the network. So inconsiderate, I'm telling you! Maybe I'll go watch Joan of Arcadia...

I'm going to go get some pasta to eat, even though I shouldn't eat at this time of night. I think part of my problem with the insomnia is worrying about going back to work on Wednesday. OMG, nightmares, man, nightmares about the total fucking MESS that will be waiting for me! Seriously, my workplace is currently so understaffed because so many people quit right before I left (including the only person I had trained to do certain portions of my job!) that I bet NOTHING has been done in my absence. On regular days I do the job of three people (yes, the handbook says there should be THREE people doing my job, but there is just me), and I know they have me scheduled to cover in another section on Wednesday, so what am I supposed to do!?! Now, I am not prone to stress. You really wouldn't guess by some of my posts here, but I am an entirely laid-back, modern-world-adapted kinda gal, but I think that ANYONE would fear what I am going back to. Oh well, who knows, maybe they'll surprise me and everything will be perfect. (Also, the Shrub will drop out of the race, NASA will stop crashing things, and Iraq will turn into a fucking paradise.) Okay, pasta now.

"Insanity" by Oingo Boingo

I'm so sorry, please forgive me
Who do I pray to to straighten out this problem?
Straighten out this problem, straighten out my mind.
Straighten out this crooked toungue...
My mind has wandered, from the straight and narrow.
My mind has wandered from the flock you see.
My mind has wandered, the man just said so.
My mind has wandered, I heard it on TV.
And the flock has wandered away from me.

-CHORUS-
All around the world now
Like a big bright cherry cloud
Traveling from home to home
TV sets and telephones
Here it comes just like a storm
Bathe in it and be reborn
Time to let the world know
Welcome madness, say hello
Like a wave we cannot see
Washing over you and me
Hiding here and hiding there
Madness hiding everywhere
Such a curiosity
Here it comes to set us free
Plenty left for you and me
Say hello insanity

I am the virus, are you the cure?
I am morally, I'm morally impure
I am a disease and I am unclean
I am not part of God's well oiled machine
Christian nation, assimilate me
Take me in your arms and set me free
I am part of a degenerate elite
Dragging our society into the street yeah
Into the abyss and to the sewer don't you see
The man just told me, he told me on TV

Do you think you're better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

And the alchoholic bastard waved his finger at me
And his voice was filled with evanglical glee now
Sipping down his gin and tonics
While preaching about the evils of narcotics
And the evils of sex, and the wages of sin
While he mental fondles his next of kin
Cause my mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me
And he waved his hypnotizing finger at me

Let's imitate reality
Let's strive for mediocrity
Let's make believe we're all the same
Let's sanitize our little brains

I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
I'd love to hear you laugh tonight, I'd love to hear you weep
I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep

Christian sons, christian daughters
Lead me along like a lamb to the slaughter
Purify my brain and hose down my soul
White perfection, perfection is my goal

Do you think you're better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

Christian nation, make us alright
Put us through the filter and make us pure and white
My mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me
Let's talk of family falues while we sit and watch the slaughter
Hypothetical abortions on imaginary daughters
The white folks think they're on the top ask any proud white male
A million years of evolution, we get Danny Quayle

-CHORUS-
All around the world now
Like a big bright cherry cloud
Traveling from home to home
TV sets and telephones
Here it comes just like a storm
Bathe in it and be reborn
Time to let the world know
Welcome madness, say hello
Like a wave we cannot see
Washing over you and me
Hiding here and hiding there
Madness hiding everywhere
Such a curiosity
Here it comes to set us free
Plenty left for you and me
Say hello insanity

I'd love to take you home with me, I'd love to tuck you in
I wish I could protect you from the wages of our sin
I'd love to hear you scream tonight, I'd love to hear you cry
Protect you from the madness that is raining from the sky

Let's imitate reality
Let's strive for mediocrity
Let's make believe we're all the same
Let's sanitize our little brains

I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
I wish that I could keep you in a precious Chinese box
On Sundays I would pray for you so it would never stop
I'd love to hear you laugh tonight, I'd love to hear you weep
I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep
I'd love to soothe you with my voice and take your hand in mine
I'd love to take you past the stars and out of reach of time
I'd love to see inside your mind and tear it all apart
To cut you open with a knife and find your sacred heart
I'd love to take your satin dolls and tear them all to shreds
I'd love to mess your pretty hair, I'd love to see you dead.
