I woulda' if I coulda'

I was going to post a bunch of pics tonight to Flickr and here, but I left my camera at Randal's. So you'll just all have to wait.

Now I am going to try to sleep, though I was foolish and commented on Rebecca's blog in response to her having been unable to sleep after watching 28 Days Later. She is in a brand-new house in a brand-new town, of course, and I hear North Bay is a wretched hive of scum and... no, sorry, that's Mos Eisley.

Anyway, where was I? Yes, I am going to TRY to sleep, though I fear that is now unlikely as Rebecca's comments made me think about certain Japanese horror films viewed shortly before moving to Japan, and their effect on me my first few nights in my new apartment (sliding doors have a strange creepy effect if you let them get to you - I can see why Japanese horror films work so well), and now it has all come rushing back, and more! since I had to look up the links to both films on imdb and now it is all fresh in my mind once more. shudder

Ahhh, insomnia due to fear. Nothing a little Milo* and 4-hour Lord of the Rings can't cure.

* Milo is the Asian version of Ovaltine. It's bloody expensive - almost $4.50 for a small container, so I picked up its generic counterpart for $3.00. Hopefully as effective...

Milo... Asian? I don't think so. It's a Nestle product made in Australia, and it's THE best-selling malt drink powder in the world, bigger than Ovaltine. I believe that your mother (whoever she is) buys it sometimes, and she thought it was Italian. Now she knows better. The name comes from Latin/Greek mythology.
As for inducing sleep, try adding a big slug of rum.
