The combination of Imodium and Lorazepam last night allowed me to fall asleep, and then stay there. Slept a bit over nine hours, which is what my body needed after these previous two nights of extended lower GI-induced sleepfail. Of course, I'll need to take a Visicol pretty soon to offload the bricks that Imodium accumulates in my lower GI. Still, sleep, blessed sleep. Infusion session three of twelve is tomorrow, so being caught up on my rest is beyond essential.

The drugs have their penalties. In my case, dreaming of gregvaneekhout. He and I were at some sort of retreat, along with timpratt, sarahprineas and a number of the other usual suspects. We wound up playing a sort of combination of full contact tag and Mafia in and around a horse barn, except we called it "Gorillas and Lions." Some people were playing it as strip tag, but luckily there were a lot of horse blankets. There was also a lot of running around weird rusted old farm implements and rotting floorboards, so I don't know why we all didn't put our eyes out. Which would have spared us the consequences of strip tag, at any rate. Except for the one guy in the gorilla suit. Who might have been chronodm.

Go, Lorazepam.

And gregvaneekhout, next time you're cruise director in one of my dreams, could we just sit down to a nice game of Settlers of Catan or something?

I'm sorry, but if I'm directing your dreams, there will always be nakedness. Also, gorilla suits.

I don't know why you didn't put your eyes out, either, but I hope your tetanus shots were all up to date, too [g].

Yay for sleeping! Also I think there needs to be a game called "Gorillas and Lions."
