I go to bed early.. I usually go to bed around 9 pm,
or 10 pm.
I'm a really healthy girl and all, I try to get 8 hours of sleep in between days. I do this so that I have enough energy for the next day, and so I don't get cranky
when I wake up in the morning,
or so I don't bargain for another 15 or so minutes before I finally drag my ass to bed. These 8 hours of sleep is important most especially when I have nursing duty at 6 in the morning in some obscure place in Mandaluyong, or Manila, or wherever.
My class this morning started at 7 am. Which means I have to get up at 5 am to get enough time to fix myself and do all my doo-dahs before I go to school. And of course, I need 8 hours of sleep before I wake up.. So 8 hours before would be.............. ahh, yes, 9 pm.
If that's so, then try to explain to me why at 2 A.M., I was still wide awake, even if I had those eye covers over my eyes??
So you know that trick where you try to count sheep so you can sleep? I actually tried that.
Fence over there, sheep on this side. So there they go, they start jumping over the fence while I count them. When I got to the 20's, I figured this sheep counting business is really slow and boring. And besides, counting made my head ache. The next thing I knew, I saw this man tossing
over his shoulder like bags of cotton
. Well, counting definitely went quicker. But it definitely did not put me to sleep.

Later this afternoon, I was on my way to my boyfriend's house. I took an FX to get there. I was sitting in the middle part of the fx, 2 women both with babies were sitting in the back, and two men in front.
These two women were gabbering away about some guy who did something to some friend of theirs and how they would have shouted at him or something or other for doing such an impolite gesture. All of sudden, we hear this gurgling at the back.
Its not the cute gurgling of a baby, or like the happy gurgling of a baby when you know, you leave her alone playing or something. It was the sound of gurgling fluid being choked up. It was actually regurgitation. One of the babies barfed.
I have a kid, so I'm used to barfing babies, and what not. But if you're not, you might as well barf, too. The FX of course was airconditioned, so as soon as you comprehend the fact that a baby just vomited, you'd smell the...uh...aroma.. (blechhh..) of the barf.
But y'know, if you try and think really hard, it would actually smell like those cheddar cheese chips.. you know, those cheese balls that stink really bad? Yeah! It does smell like that.
Then, maybe, baby barf wouldn't smell so bad.
