    Okay, I've got a nasty schedule that takes me to the hospital before most of you wake up, three times a week. This results in insomnia for me. I got up at 1 am and will get up at 4 am tomorrow.

    I've been stuck at the Atlanta airport for 12 hours. So, that.

    Ewww I hope you have one of my best abilities. My wife is jealous that I can sleep just about anywhere.

    Sitting in the car, on a plane or laying on a hard floor. Loud sounds don't even stop me.

    I've had a few eye surgeries and any light at all keeps me awake.
    For other reasons, I'm also sensitive to sound. This is all new to me. Ten years ago, I was like you. When I went to bed, I was asleep in 30 seconds. My wife also used to comment on how she wished she could go to sleep so rapidly. Now, she's the one that can sleep with lights on and sound galore.
    I think it's because of all the surgeries and some of the illnesses. I take a massive amount of pills to keep me afloat. This may also contribute to my insomnia.
    I also need the temperature just right and especially at night.
    Getting old ain't for wimps.

    I'm sure all of us have at one point. I fell asleep once coming back from the coast. Luckily it was late at night and on a relatively straight stretch of road...but for about 10 seconds I was out.

    Me too. However, I was young at the time and hence stupid.

    The brightest guy in my graduating class of extremely bright engineers, some of whom were your major designers of ICs at Intel, was coming back to Corvallis to go to Grad school when he fell asleep and ran off the road. He went down a canyon and was killed. They used to have a statue of him at OSU but I'm not sure if it's still there.

    The grooves cut into the shoulder saved me from crashing. They should be everywhere

    I bought a Tesla. Highly recommended, for just those reasons.

    I was thinking about a Tesla but I think the maximum range is about 200 miles.
    Also, they are very expensive.
    My wife vetoed the idea.

    I dropped parents off at LAX this AM. I went to Target afterwards.

    Target here is open from 7am to midnight. That's fucking crazy.

    I wish. I have a hang up about sleeping in front of people I don't know. My brain can't do it. Anyways, I finally made it. The hurricane damage is crazy here.

    I am up so early because I get up before my wife and son for a cup of joe and some news. Then get my son ready, get him to school, and get to work
