Insomnia is a way of life for me. This site was born out of insomnia. I’m even starting to get a reputation for it. Hoss thinks I stay up too late when I’m actually getting up too early. Sometimes. Other times I haven’t been to sleep at all! But even with just three or four hours of sleep, I cannot keep a regular schedule. I could be up at 1AM for six nights straight, then the ONE night I get the 1AM phone call that I’ve been waiting for, I’ll be sound asleep and cause unneccessary embarassment on the part of the caller. As we say in these parts, “can’t win for losing.”
This is National Sleep Awareness Week, so I threw together a bunch of sleepy funnies for your entertainment and education. Lets start with some games.
Help Oscar stay awake at work. Not an easy game to figure out.
Sheep Dash, a game to measure your reaction time.
Sleepless Knight. With a name like that, I HAD to include it in the insomnia post. Read the instructions to get past the password problem.

Floating bed. Nice looking, too!

You are calm and rational.

You are easy going and trusting.
However, you are too sensible to fall for mind games.
