^^ Jeez. Luuuuucky. I'm still wide awake, waiting for the world to awaken. Well, this side of the globe.

I can be like this or be like a co-worker who is a high functioning narcoleptic. I'm afraid it's either end of the spectrum for me with no happy median.

When I used to have a hard time sleeping, I would just think of the times I was in the military and couldn't sleep. There were plenty of nights when I could've easily slept, but had to stay up for one stupid reason or another. Then I just channel those old thoughts of wishing I could sleep into my current situation and it usually works. If not, Nyquil always does the trick I always take about a day or two to fully wake up after that stuff, though.

One thing to consider is perhaps placing your bed on an incline. Some studies show that it helps insomnia, acid reflux, slows aging, restless feet, tossing, varicose veins (keeps the blood from pooling in one spot), etc. I know I sleep much better with an inclined bed than I ever did. I have zero sleep issues. OF course, don't bring stress/anxiety with you to bed. That's another key point.

Which way do you tilt it?
It also helps to have a high quality mattress. The new memory foam/latex ones are the shiznit. This is the one I bought last year: Sealy | Embody by Sealy Latex Foam Mattresses (http://www.sealy.com/Mattress-Brands/Embody-by-Sealy/Latex-Foam.aspx - broken link) and I don't remember not almost instantly falling asleep as soon as I got in the bed. They are COLD, though, in the winter. A heated mattress pad is pretty much mandatory. I suffered all last winter without one, but picked one up about a month ago and that was a game changer.

Just a note to all you that are interested in SA history, a restored "Wings" (1927) is going to be released on Jan. 24th on dvd & bluray. Filmed right here in SA. From the reviews the restoration effort was amazing.

Thanks Deep Forest. I find WINGS eery, yet fascinating with that monotonous piano in the background pounding away during the aerial dogfight scenes. Also, I believe they filmed most at Camp Bullis, no? So strange to see San Antonio with nothing but trees, brush and hills. Many of the pilots that flew in that film were ex-WWI fighter pilots.

It has at least two scores with it, the original and an orchestral one as well. Aerial sequences were filmed at the now-defunct Kelly Field.
