i've been up these last couple of nights reading catch-22. i'm sick of watching futurama to fall asleep, but it's generally the only thing that works. i keep telling myself that if i just plow into heller's next chapter i will be bored to tears or lulled into dreamland, but only once did the veil of sleep fall over me. and just a few minutes later i awoke with a start, vexed by the idea that i could fall asleep reading and perturbed that i'd lost my place in the novel.

i'm endlessly setting the book aside to ponder such catches in my own life. additionally, i like to think of the names i would give to people i know if they were merely characters in the book of swell. but how can i compete with major major major major and colonel korn.

i try to imagine the interconnectedness of all my supporting characters so that i could detail the bizarre events and always come back to the baseline with some surprising coincidence that relates them all to one another. but i have no imagination for such developments. surely, they exist already, but, still, i cannot imagine them.

i sort of miss the days when i thought i was a writer. not because i thought i had a magnificent story to tell, but because i thought i could tell it anyway. i don't know what i think anymore. i get too caught up in the thought that no one really sees the words i write the way i mean them. fatalist, i know.

anyway, i wish i could sleep.

I fall asleep to futurama, too. Seems to be one of the few things that works for me.

Futurama or Family Guy, but there's something calming about Futurama, I don't know what it is.

I've been falling asleep to it for years, it's odd to see that someone else does it, too.

Last night I fell asleep to Hell Is Other Robots - "Who would have thought there's an actual robot hell, and that it'd be in New Jersey?" "well...".

it's nuts
i've been falling asleep to futurama since the year it came out. i love that show and i watch the shit out of it. it's like i know all the episodes by heart, so i don't actually have to watch them. (as opposed to watching a new movie or an episode of some drama that i like that keeps me sitting up every few minutes to make sure i know whats going on.) if i go to bed without futurama, i can lie there for hours and hours. but once i turn it on, i can be out before the intro is over.

i don't know what i would do without that show.

last night i zonked out to crimes of the hot. "but what about the gweenhouse gwasses?"
