Lately I have not been sleeping very well. An unfinished basement that echoes the sound of crickets chirping incessantly is really not good for REM sleep. I have tried so many techniques to get rid of those bastards that it is ridiculous. I tried more environmentally friendly methods; I tried not so hazardous methods; but it finally came down to fogging those bastards out yeterday.
I think that worked.
At least I didn't hear them as loud last night.
Though last night I still didn't sleep well since I kept waking up to listen to hear if I could hear any of Jiminy's friends.
When I did finally get some zzzz I had a horrible dream.
I was best friends with Lil Wayne and John McCain. We were on a road trip together with some huge insects and were driving on a road that was like a roller coaster with its incline so incredibly steep. And I couldn't see where the road would wind up when we finally reached its peak. The two guys were laughing and joking and all I could think about was how I hoped that the large incline would lead to nowhere so that I would drop off and not have to be around the two of them any more.
(Un)Fortunately, the alarm ended the dream before I could see the finale.
We'll see if Jiminy's cousins are back to scratching their legs together to keep me up tonight.
On a completely different note -- NPR started a story on race issues on Morning Edition and continued on All Things Considered asking some voters in York, PA "Does race matter in '08?" and about some general race questions. I didn't get to hear the afternoon portion yet, but this morning they said that in the afternoon some of the participants admitted that they still believe Obama is a Muslim.
Talk about lies and exaggerations being held in people's heads. If someone says something many people will believe it without looking into the actual facts. Like people saying that being a community organizer is a negative thing.
Tune in or check the site to see/hear the morning story and the rest of the story.
