Elusive Sleep and 5-Dog Nights

One of my all-time favorite scenes is from The Scarlet Pimpernel

“The seek him here, they seek him there, those Frenchies seek him everywhere.

Is he in heaven, or is he in hell, that damned elusive Pimpernel.”

Recently, sleep has been eluding me.

Preventing sleep is a form of torture used in POW camps.

Lack of sleep makes you crazy.

According to WEB MD, there are 10 Things to HATE about Sleep Loss. Really, there are many more.

But, “dumbing down,” aging skin and becoming forgetful seem to be the most worrisome.

So, starting tonight, electronics go off at 8:30 so I can start my 5-dog night.
