What If They Examine My Head And Find Nothing?

So a few months ago, as some of you may recall, I was hospitalized for a few days. They did tons and tons of tests and figured out that the blood sometimes has a hard time getting to my brain.
George (cousin #2), being the smart ass that he is, says that's because my mouth is always open and it can't get past that. Yeah, he's a smart ass.
Anyway, they have to do one more test tomorrow. I have been putting this test off for a while. It's not the test I'm worried about. It's what I have to do to get ready for the test. I cannot sleep the night before.
Which is now.
I am not allowed to sleep tonight. I have to stay awake using natural means. No caffeine. No drugs. Nothing.
I guess severe lack of sleep puts extreme stress on your brain. They want to see how my brain acts under severe stress.
I don't know why they have to put me through all this. Don't they know that the mere mention of the phrase "Vice President Palin" sends my brain in a tizzy?
So here I sit at 3:49 A.M. pretty damn delirious.
Let me just say that I am one of those people who has weird sleeping patterns. I get up sometimes at 3 or 4am and watch some tv or go on computer and then go back to sleep after a while. But when someone tells me I can't sleep. Well, let me just say I was ready to go to bed a 9:00 tonight.
So how am I passing the time?
I went food shopping around 10:00 tonight.
I figured I'll just cook all night and clean my kitchen.
At about 11:00 I put a turkey in the oven.
Yes, a turkey with stuffing to boot.
Made meatloaf.
Then make chicken with an orange glaze.
So far I burnt the meatloaf, the stuffing was a little burnt. And my kitchen is still a mess. Actually, it's a bigger mess now because I am too tired to clean up.

I did a few loads of laundry.

I'm fading fast.

I figured this would be the toughest part. 4:00 to 7:00 AM. And it is.

How about i just change the subject a little to keep my mind sharp( Yeah, like that would happen)

As I mentioned earlier, I went food shopping tonight. Do you know I paid 4.98 at Giant Eagle for aluminium foil? $4.98!!! It was a little roll. 75 feet. Geeze, I thought that was alot.

You know what's happening here don't you? I starting to babble. When I get tired or nervous, I babble on and on and on. Sorry.

Hmm, who knew the News started at 4:00 am. Certainly not me.

I'm a little tired to go on and on tonight. I am going to leave you with a blog I found that can rant about Winky for me. And she does it in much better English.

Margaret and Helen

Well it's now 5:20 AM. I am watching "Ryan's Hope" on the soap channel. It originally aired in 1976. It's fun if for nothing else than the clothes and the stupid story lines by today's standards.

Two and a half hours to go.

Think I'll make it?????

Were down to the wire people. Hopefully the Winky and Blinky show will be canceled one week from today! Dear Lord, I certainly hope so. For all our sakes.

Gee if I would have known you were up all night, we could have hung out.....
Well, I really wasn't up all night....just the majority of it. Carmen had a snoring jagg then after I hit him a few times for him to quit, his beeper kept going off and then he kept making phone calls....discussing business right there in the bed. So, I went downstairs to the couch at 3 am....where I could not get comfy to save my life. Soon, it was time to get up and blog then walk.....
So yeah....we could have met at Ritters and chatted.....! If you're staying up tonight...give me a holler. Vince is leaving State College at midnight to drive home (don't ask...). And, there's snow.....8-(
Hope the test goes well.
