Top Ten Things to Do When You’re Not Allowed to Sleep (Post #34)

Filed under: Top Ten — Tense @ 12:30 am

1. Come up with a new blog post every 30 minutes.

2. Chat via webcam with some crazy women.

3. Eat foods that give you energy (such as grapes, cashews, pretzels), and avoid the sweet chocolatey stuff, no matter how desperately you want it.

4. Drink a lot of liquids, that way you have to get up to pee a lot too.

5.  Listen to upbeat or silly music.

6.  Watch bad movies on TV (a la Son in Law).

7.  Choke when your drink (raspberry ginger ale is delish, by the way) goes down the wrong pipe.  That will certainly keep you awake.

8.  Surf and comment on other Blogathoners’ blogs.

9.  Stand up and jump around, being careful to hold onto your boobies so they don’t black your eyes.

10.  Scratch your itchy nose incessantly… dammit!

Well, they’re working for me, anyway.



  1. I am drinking regular ginger ale! *cheers* 🙂

  2. I hold on to my boobies even when I am not jumping around.

  3. Abby – I’m afraid to drink a lot of caffeine… I know I’ll crash quickly if I do.

    Fab – You too?
