Despite numerous rewrites, this week's post “Anthropomorphic Animal Lover” was proving most unsatisfactory, and it was eventually decided the best course of action would be to abandon it altogether and attempt to get a bit of shut-eye instead. The definite lack of it this week was starting to take its toll, especially Friday morning when one managed to drive eight blocks past the turnoff to work before finally “coming to” (for lack of a better term). 

Please be sure to stop by next week for the first of four Hallowe'en Giveaways, preparation for which has caused a flurry of shopping. And as the insomniac  keeps assuring the long-suffering spouse as more and more items accumulate on the Dining Room Table, “Of course we're not keeping all this stuff, dear! It's for the Giveaways!!”

But for now, it's off to bed for the insomniac. She wanted to close with a lovely Victorian painting of a sleeping woman with drool coming out the side of her mouth, but they're harder to find than you might expect.

Until next time, the insomniac  wishes you nights of blissful sleep filled with pleasant dreams. Goodnight, my pretties.



  1. haha, I had a pile of things like that too for a bunch of swaps I am involved in. Finally cleaned and organized it all yesterday b/c I was tired of hearing hubby complain about it.
    Hope you got a good night's sleep! :)

    1. The insomniac staggered back to bed at 7:00 a.m. and slept a further two and a half hours, which was lovely! The only bad thing about it was the terribly strange dreams ...

      She is probably going to have to email you directly this week about the whole Rafflecopter thing, so as to avoid messing it up! LOL

  2. I'll be looking forward to next week's post. In the meanwhile, may you have many hours of blissful sleep.

    1. Thank you, Nightwind! One is hoping for a good night before tomorrow morning's 5:30 a.m. alarm!

      The Hallowe'en Gift Urn went last weekend for an astounding $130! So terribly sorry that the insomniac  can't send it to you, but please be sure to enter all four Giveaways in October and hopefully you'll be a winner! :o)

    2. I thought that someone must have bid for the Hallowe'en Gift Urn, it was a real piece of art. I'll definitely be on the watch for your givaways--and thank you!
