Reynolds, I'm a dangerous-minded man on a ship loaded with hurt. Now, why you got me chatting with your peons?

[NAFDA] Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.

Still first 5? A record! Something good for wasting time on iGoogle, LJ and MySpace. I feel almost like a teenager.

That man was going to shank me. Over an omelette. Two eggs and a slice of government cheese. Is that what my life is worth?

First five, my sweet Bev.

eta: and lovely, libkitty.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

It's the Insomniac Bitch Chorus!

Thank you Liese. Not to leave us threadless, or spinning out 36 till daybreak.

Brought to you by the sleepless ones. Now, my work is done, and I think I'm going to try to change that. Unless I end up reading in bed. Ah, weekends with no plans until tomorrow afternoon.

I am sleepy and twitchy. Not a good combo.

That sucks, ChiKat.

See how well I'm doing that going to bed thing?

ChiKat, have you tried magnesium or melatonin? I used to swear by melatonin, except apparently it interacts with corticosteroids, so now magnesium is my new best friend. Although, I clearly haven't taken it today. Actually, it's not all that late here. Just midnight.

I take 800-1200 mg of magnesium per day (doc's orders--one day is 800, the next is 1200, etc.). The twitchy is because I've been lax about taking the prescribed calcium for the past couple of weeks. I've been taking some, just not enough and it caught up to me today.

I need to look into melatonin. Certainly can't hurt, right?

Actually, you should probably be more careful with melatonin than some other supplements, since it's a hormone, but you should be ok if you get it a reputable brand and don't take too much. Andrew Weil and others used to say (and maybe still do) that you can take more the older you get, since your body makes less and less. My uncle started taking it daily in his 70s. I started taking it in my late 20s, but would only take it occasionally, and never more than 3 or 4 days in a row.

eta: I don't think that they know of any harm from taking it regularly when you're younger, is just that since it's a hormone, some think there may be unknown side effects.
