I suffer from insomnia. I'd go to bed and sleep, but my brain tells me there is always something I have to do. Something I have to read, something I have to clean. A walk I should probably take. Something other than sleep. I get by at times on only 3 to 4 hours a night of sleep. Sometimes, I just don't sleep at all. Part of the reason is my night job as a baker, and part of it is that I can't sleep in a bed horizontally, without my back hurting me after ten minutes or so. I have gotten used to sleeping in a semi-upright position, so I manage somehow to get something like sleep.
Last night, I discovered that having a half a snort of red wine made me sleep most of the night, quite restfully, in fact. Better than sleeping pills, in fact.
So it is times like this, when I can't sleep, I get online and read...
....or watch YouTube. Such precious moments. Wasted. Watching YouTube. But, what a trove of time-wasted treasure I often find. Case in point...H/T Allahpundit.
Even more interesting, hidden in a link within the paean Allapundit penned, is the fact that the video was made at one of my favorite places: Knoebel's Amusement Resort, a scant two hours north of Hero Township.
You see how much fun the fruit of my loins and the sire that begat her are having on that ride? Exquisite time wastage. Not your everyday Kodak moment!
So, sleepy head that I ought to be, and having a head full of thinks waiting to be thoughted, I will summon sleep assistance from YouTube:
