It's 2:54 a.m. and I'm still friggin' awake...

I hate when I forget to take my sleep meds.

I could also reallllllllllllllllllllllllly go for a pizza right about now. Dammit.

Guess this isn't going to help out much for recovering from my group ride last night.

Thanks for reminding me. I need to take my anti-inflamatory so my knee doesn't bother me on tomorrow's ride. Goodnight!

I actually did that before....laying in bed at like 11:30 p.m. back in December, I said screw it, threw the lights on the bike, and went out in 25 degree temps. Good stuff.

I can't get a pizza at this hour though, which really sucks.

Tombstone pizza? Not really the same, but not bad either.

I live in northeastern CT....i.e, the sticks. Great for cycling, not so great for getting food at 3 a.m.

I think there's a gas station/convenience store that's open nearby....

I just found some Ritz crackers though. Not quite the same thing as a pizza, but good enough for now.

C'est la Vie. Pizza at 3am probably isn't such a great idea anyway, come to think of it.

I'm with ya... although I'm up because I have a 1 week old and I'm waiting for my wife so I can change her diapers! ha

Took her to her first race today and I flatted on the first lap and forgot my extra wheel... what a day.

Next time eat a late dinner at the Aero Diner.



I know the owner, he's good people. And some of the dinners you get there will necessitate being shoehorned back out the door.

They're not, unfortunately. That was the original plan actually, but wasn't enough business to be worth it. They normally close at around 9. If you eat there at 8:30 though, you won't be hungry at 1:30 am

To the OP: Do you take prescription sleep meds or do you go the liquid Melatonin route? While my son was on Chemo and he stopped sleeping, the prescription sleep meds they gave us didn't help much, but we found liquid melatonin and withing 30 minutes he was begging us to let him to go bed.

I take both prescription and non-prescription meds....the prescription ones can develop an addiction, so I try to limit those as much as possible. I've found Advil PM to work pretty well, but ran out.

Treat the cause not the symptom. Why can’t you sleep?
