January 16, 2008



This happened to me a few times, I think last summer. At least then, I didn't have to wake early to get kids off to school, but it stil was so irritating. I stayed in bed a few times waiting an hour or two to fall back asleep.

Next time it happened, deciding that "thrashing in bed" was pointless, I got up to watch truly horrible t.v. for an hour, or plinked around on the computer. I was no worse off sleepwise choosing having fun over thrashing in bed.

I will NOT vote for Nick Nolte, by the way.


Which limb, exactly, would you give?


I typically remember at least some of my dreams most nights. Do you recall the Carmelized Pancetta and Fennel Salad receipe I linked you to the other day? Two nights ago I dreamed that I was making that for Nicolas Sarkozy and my friend Tim O'Connor.

Only I was serving it inside a Babka. In a wheat field. During a tornado.


I read in my son's Ask Magazine (an excellent periodical for kids, by the way) that before artificial light, people talked about first sleep and second sleep. Waking up in the middle of the night was normal. You'd tend the fire, make sure the cow was still tied up outside, put some porridge on and then go back to bed. Happens to me all the time, too--but not the Knick Knolte part, thank God!


I just read the very same thing last week at Neatorama: . Trouble is, I'm too lazy and stubborn to get out of bed and get something accomplished.

And thanks for the tip on Ask Magazine.


I have a friend who is taking Chantix to quit smoking (she hasn't had a cigarette in 8 weeks...and she was a 2 pack a day smoker for well over 20 years)...and one of the side effects is having vivid dreams. She has kind of been enjoying it!
