its 2am and FAR too hot to sleep

damnit, I havent been awake at this time of night for a long long time!!!!!! I just cannot get to sleep in this heat, which means my mind has been busy being random so I thought I'd post some of my thoughts here...........mainly cos I'm bored!

I've just finished one of my many books. It's about the 7th or 8th time that I've read it, and I still don't tire of seeing words. Words, the written word in particular, are definately my passion (not disregarding my son of course) and have been since I learnt to read. I stunned the teachers at my school when I started, as on my first day there I completed the set reading for my year group, and have had a reading age of 16 (based on what the school tells you!) since i was 7. Books, papers, even leaflets if I am really bored, they all captivate and thrill me. A well written book will seduce me time and time again, and I'll still stay up far too late to just finish a book, one that I've already read time and time again. The only downside to this is that new books last me about a day! I do really wish that I could write as well as I read. One day I really hope to write something that could thrill others as other people have thrilled me. Written words are something that will alway get a reaction out of me, whether it be arousal, fear, sadness, get to go for a ride along with someone, experience their thoughts and feelings in everyway, and you dont always get to do that with your partner, yet you can depend on a book to give you that. When all else is going pear-shaped, I can always count on a book being there to soothe my senses and take me somewhere far from the struggles of life.

I guess I may even be able to sleep now, and if not, theres always coffee I guess!
Night all

Poor thing for not being able to sleep.

Though the post was thought provoking for me. Maybe I'll have to send a few naughty e-mails your way...

That's the only thing I hate about the hot weather..lack of sleepage. :-(
