I am a little bit insomniac-ish. No matter how tired I am, I simply cannot sleep through the night. And I don't like to take sleeping pills because they make me so loopy it's not even funny. (Actually it is pretty funny.) So I'm generally up at all hours of the night. Sometimes it is very boring to be awake all night. Doing anything (reading, watching tv, cleaning the bathroom, making potato salad) wakes me up even further so I generally just lie in bed and think. I think about all kinds of stuff. Sometimes I make up jokes and write them down next to my bed and when I wake up in the morning I'm all, "Ha! These are some terrible jokes!"
Often I will write down ideas for blog posts in the middle of the night. They are all very terrible ideas. The other day I wrote, "Tell them about all the stuffed animals you've ever had." See what I mean? Very terrible stuff.
My four favorite stuffed animals were:
1) Butter Bear
3) Cinnamon Bear
4) Mrs. Rabbit
I am not very creative at naming things.
I am very absent-minded. I write myself post-it notes about everything so I don't forget stuff. That is one of the reasons (from a very long list) I am scared to have children. I'm afraid I would stick the kid somewhere and forget where I put it. I would have to write myself notes like "Baby in kitchen" or "Stuck it in the crib" and that can get expensive. Do you know how much post-its are going for these days?
I am apparently just as creative at naming kids as I am at naming stuffed animals.
