Have you tried reading the bible?

I have, and couldn't get past "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." It doesn't help me sleep though, just makes me feel annoyed thinking there are people who believe this book to be something more than a origin story and collection of myths. 
I lose myself infused in something more than what they've seen
I'm not a slave to greed
I don't embrace your make believe
I've never been for sale no matter what they think I need

I've been trying out a new brand of melatonin gummies for the last month and I am pretty impressed. Here's the brand. It is a bit more expensive than other melatonin suppliments I've tried but it works well.

This is the podcast that I put on. Something about this guy's voice puts me to sleep almost instantly.

Bedtime stories to help grown ups fall asleep in the deep, dark night.

Sounds absolutely snore-inducing. I'll give it a try.  :thumbsup:

I can say that I have never even made it to the bedtime story portion. I always fall asleep during the introduction

another call at midnight. no work today, again. zo im wide awake but wont be getting up for three or four more hours.



Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Are you paid by  the delivery or salaried?

by the hour.

normal work week is 60 hours. last week was only 35.

things always slow down in the oil fields in the winter, because everybody has blown their annual budgets by the end of the fiscal year, but this is leaner than usual.

I thought as much. But presumably you do every hour you can get during the summer?

yes. the business is cyclic by its nature, and winter hours are always a bit low.

i worked wellhead for a while. that was nightmarish. 119 hours per week, 7 days a week, three days or so off between wells every month or so.

driving bottlez iz like a vacation compared to that
