Gratuitous Cranky McCranky Pants Blogging

For some reason, I'm extremely cranky as of late, and I don't really know why.

Two nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night screaming---I had had a quiet vivid nightmare, but I have no idea about what (this is NOT a common occurrence by any stretch of the imagination). I've been waking up not feeling very well rested, and have just been downright irritable.

Crank crank crank crank....

For bedtime (note, you must have 8 hours to devote to sleep) make a nice cup of herbal tea (no caffine). I prefer something along the lines of apple cinnamon. Stir in a teaspoon of honey and a healthy dose of brandy (use the cheap stuff). Take with a Benadryl (the real stuff, the kind you need a note from mom to get anymore). Go to bed. You'll be out for a long time.

...welll, that's one suggestion. The other is to get some exercise and fresh air, have a nice bowl of pasta, grill and eat a heap o' dead aminal, read to the kids, keep the TV and computer off, and read non-fiction...

...or just renew the Blessed Acrobatics of Holy Matrimony and pass out snoring afterwards...

My advice to you is to drink heavily.

Beat the kids for a good half hour before bedtime. Works for me.

Aw, you're just consumed with envy that Chai gets to repose in the Super Secret Full Professors Lounge, and you don't.

Quit fixating on it, dude. The hookah will still be warm when your time comes...

Thanks, guys.

Literally, 5 minutes after I posted this the guy showed up with the dumptruck of mulch. 9 cubic yards.

Believe it or not, spreading mulch makes me happy.

My mom says a good bowel movement solves everything.
