Did you know that you can watch a "Get A Better Bra" infomercial at almost any time of the night? Approximately 10 of my channels are in Spanish, another 5-6 are wrestling, there's usually a couple "Praise the Lord" shows, and of course reruns. Law and Order, House, Bones, Seinfeld, Friends and Everyone Loves Raymond are topping the numbers of times shown. Then there are a number of informercials, which in my weakened sleep-deprived state, look very interesting to me.
There are some things I can do while not sleeping. I play Scrabble and other word games online. I play Family Feud, a really annoying game but hey...I'm awake. I catch up on Facebook and emails. That's why you get messages from me at all hours.
I have a new philosophy of life based on these experiences.
1. Sleep is highly under-rated. If you can sleep, enjoy it.
2. The best channel to watch in the wee hours is one that has just the Test Pattern showing. It keeps you from getting too involved in the plot.
3. Men (husbands) are especially annoying when you can't sleep. Obviously, nothing stays on their brains at night. Mine falls asleep instantly and thoroughly as I toss and turn.
