  2. Um, remind me to never do a sleep study. Creepy clown picture. (shudder)

    1. Don't worry, the real art work on the walls was much more pastoral and sleep inducing

    1. Thanks! Can't take credit for it though, it is a Slanket that I copied from the Slanket website-the name of the design is "Bits".You should check it out, the model for the slanket looks quite pleased with himself

  4. I was supposed to do a sleep study because my jerk doctor who refused to treat me because I'm fat thinks that fat automatically means Sleep Apnea, but I didn't go because they said I couldn't sleep naked and sleeping with clothes on makes me sleep badly, so I didn't think that the data would be reliable.

    1. That sucks. I didn't ask if I could sleep naked, but they probably would have said no to me because my hygiene is a bit of a grey area.

  6. You are really committing yourself to the beard thing. It's so very...Clooney.

    1. Hi Kelly! Actually I want to shave but my wife won't let me. She wants me to give it three months so my hair goes through its three distinct growing patterns. At that point we will reevaluate. I am sick of having to draw the beard hairs, though, so I think I am going to shave as soon as she leaves the house.
      In other beard news, my blog has been a pain in the ass lately and unfunny to me, and I blame the beard for that as well.

  7. Per your comment above that the blog is "unfunny to me lately": I can understand the stress from a need to be creative, truly. But "unfunny" applies only to you and not the rest of us. ". . . resign myself to a life of wearing mock burgundy turtle-necks and speaking calmly over my steepled fingers."

    Pure poetic comedy. Your muse seems to be working very well, however painfully. NeoCleo

  9. the reefer madness which seems represented by the staff both perplexes and intrigues me. may we have more info available or is this an "open to interpretation" thing?

    1. It was just my guess as to what they did all night, since they spend hours just sitting their watching people sleep. My creative juice has been pretty low lately, so the best I could come up with is eat and smoke pot.

    2. I totally get it though. You perfectly illustrated my paranoia about sleep study -- the fact that I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing that I was SUPPOSED to be sleeping. I get all anxiety ridden when there's something I'm supposed to be doing, which is why I can't sleep, and thus, probably need a sleep study or some shit. But then I never thought about who would actually be watching me sleep. You think some department director super-PHD-man is going to be watching? No way, it's the interns, the undergrads, the lackeys! you're so right! Screw those punks and their pot and candy bars. I'm not doing it. Thanks for helping me make up my mind, Gweenbrick.

  10. Reading this again, this post is truly genius. The room going "dark", the Aquaman pajamas, the clown with the revolver -- so many fantastic details. Really really great.

    (sorry for so many comments on the blog today. I'm catching up after not reading for a while...)
