Does this ever happen to you?

Last night I crawled into bed and simply could not get to sleep. At first I wasn't comfy. And then the blankets weren't right. And then my mind just went off in about 50 directions.

I started thinking about books. Then I started thinking about a certain character and tried to track her age through a series of books (I did ok up until the later books, then I got off by about 8 years...). Then I started thinking about other characters by the same author (future book blog post - not for awhile but I have an outline written down in my book journal). Which made me think about getting a specific book from the library. Which made me think about looking up a book on burlesue. Which made me think that an ethnography about current day burlesque dancers would kick ass. Which made me think that I needed to email someone about that. And then it made me think that an ethnography like that could tie in really well with a Master's thesis in the history of lingerie.

And yes, I know...my brain is an interesting place.

Some point after all that I finally fell asleep. That whole process - took at least 1.5 hours. After I turned on the light and started making notes. lol I figured the best way to get get my brain to shut up was to get it all out.

I've been tired all day. But at least I should get right to sleep tonight right???
