Way back half nekkid good night's sleep

Most people know that I don't like taking any kind of medication. I loathe going to the doctor and usually trust that time and rest will work most things out. There are times, however, when I will take pills, like aspirin for headaches. Yesterday, I received several sleeping pills in the mail from one of the (now favoritest) bloggers who visits this site. The gratitude I felt when those were in my mailbox was immeasurable. Sleep was on the way. I haven't figured out how to properly thank this person, but thanks are coming in addition to this one. Long story short, I slept for nine hours last night. And despite a slight grogginess this morning, I feel like weeping with joy.

I don't have anything planned for the blog today. And since it's Thursday and yesterday was Wednesday, here's a way-back-half-nekkid picture that represents the time I consider to have been my "top shape" year. It hasn't been exactly all downhill since then, but hairiness and wrinkliness are on the rise, as are the proliferation of freckles. (You do know that a tan is evidence of skin damage, right? I tanned a lot back then.)

Age 33, 1998. 180lbs

Hmmm, nice pic. I'll admit I had to use my fingers to figure out your age :-) I'm a wee bit ahead of you in that category. Glad you got some sleep!

It's all about my philosophy of life: "better living through pharmacology." LOL.

I sleep well (Imovane) am relatively "happy" (Effexor) Can relax in the blink of an eye (Ativan) and have hardly any HIV in me at all anymore (Reyataz, abacavir, 3TC)!

All this for only $2000/a month!

I used to have a lot of contempt for Big Pharma, and now, plus ca change, I want them to get whatever they want to keep my friends in white lab coats happy and busy!!!

I thought you would go for my Modafinil pills to enhance your mind instead ! Maybe you should mix both ;)

I am glad you got some sleep.

As for other matters, at least you won't have to worry about additional sun-damage now that you live in Canada.

Sassy said...

Hot hot hot! Happy HNT!

Daniel, the Guy in the Desert said...

Smart and Hot! Oops, I'm using labels. Glad you got some rest. There have been many times I thanked God in the morning for the pill the night before.
And did I mention, hot? Why did I have to have skanky old Mizz Iodine for a teacher when the competition is so effortlessly superior?

Wow.

I wish I could think of something more witty or pithy to say, but really, I'mkinda speechless.

Wow...how hot....

HAPPY HNT!

The latest Saturday Night Live satires are sleep inducing. You should try that.

Good lord. Nice HNT! As I've said before, there is no more food in my life.

Chunks said...

I think you should knit something to show your gratitude!

Nice top shape pic. I am still waiting to reach my top shape. Round is a shape, right?

Spider said...

Really happy you got some well deserved sleep - as for the pic... yea, HOLY FUCK kinda sums it up!

Freak Magnet said...

Yummay!

Sunshine said...

I guess you'll still need to work out why you couldn't sleep. Don't want to start relying on the pills, I guess. Good that you slept though. :)

Donna said...
