tripping: Tomorrow we leave for New Orleans. Today I am rolling up all of my clothes into floppy bindles and shoving them in a suitcase. Do I need to take four pairs of shoes? Maybe I need five.

The birds were taken to the bird sitter today, and the dogs go to dog camp tomorrow morning. They can tell something is up, which means that Jones is sticking to me like glue and Lula is keeping her distance. I should have bathed both of them earlier this week because they stink and the dog camp people always comment on Jones' relative lack of grooming - but I didn't do it, and obviously it's not getting done, so fuck it.

I drank my usual double americano at about 11 AM today and I'm still high (spacey yet alert) now at 6:15 PM. Recently, I have had a lot of trouble falling asleep (especially now that I've run out of Ativan), a brain that buzzes like a hive in the wee hours, as well as this not-unpleasant hyper-reaction to caffeine. I think the manic part of manic-depressive may be asserting itself. Not bad timing, really.

tumbling: I just signed up for tumblr a few days ago and I'm looking for recommendations for art/oddity tumblrs that I could follow, or really just recs of any sort. So far, I'm just using mine to get more pictures of Andrej Pejic and to post a very small amount of randomness. I actually signed up thinking I wanted to post a bunch of old art projects, but, when viewed with a critical eye, I'm not so sure that sharing them is in anyone's best interests after all. I never use Facebook and I haven't posted a banal haiku to twitter in months, but tumblr is different enough that it seems like it might even be useful.

Tumblr confuses me. You'll have to teach me later.

OK. I'm still not sure what I'll use it for besides nabbing pictures of shiny things, but it's not that difficult to use.

I sub to a couple of tumblr feeds in googlereader for, well, porn. Some amazing male nudes out there on that site. Mmm.

I have been using melatonin for sleep issues, and it's helped A LOT. Maybe give it a whirl on really bad nights?

Enjoy your trip!

Hee! I haven't explored the male nude aspect much yet, although I lean over the Mr.'s shoulder and look at his vintage female nudes and his tattoo girls.

I tried melatonin years ago but ended up with a sort of hangover effect and gave it up in frustration. However, it's probably worth another try, since it's not addictive and I don't have to cadge a prescription to get it.

Jeez, you'd think that amount of coffee drunk that early in the day would have worn off by dark. Do you sleep better when you don't take any caffeine at all?

Tumblr kinda baffles me. I do enjoy the Advice Sherlock BBC though.

I hope your trip is fun.

I always have trouble sleeping, but it's been worse lately, and I think it's personal chemistry more than caffeine (or lack thereof).

So far, the trip is...okay. Very socially stressful for me, since it has involved leaving my house and interacting with people!

:D Yeah, I don't relish that either. I went to a gig last nght, and that's plenty for the next few days.

Be safe out there. :)
