Gonna live while I'm alive, and sleep when I'm dead.

I took this self-portrait a few minutes ago as I prepare to take a Ambien to go to sleep tonight. After 3 weeks of getting around 3 hours of sleep total a night, I finally agreed with the ol' ball and chain to go to the doctor today.

Of course, she went with me to "support me" which is code for "I don't trust you to tell him EVERYTHING, so I'm making sure you do". By the time we left, the poor Doc must have thought I was not only in need of sleep, but a 30 day "retreat" at the closest mental institution.

Well, I've got the magic pill and praying it works. While I agreed to go to the Doctor, I didn't tell Ang the reason for my sudden rebirth in my faith of medicine:

Truth is the Red Sox are off tonight, and I figured tonight was the best chance I had to give it a whirl and get some sleep.

I sure wasn't gonna try it tomorrow with my boy Beckett going for 7-0.

//they have them fur lined//

And you would know this how?:)

Ted D said...

Horsham, Scott is a bit of an odd one.

Well, the magic pill worked/didn't work. I took it around 10 and fell asleep around ?, but was wide awake from 3:30 am on. SO I got some sleep, but still feel like a zombie. Oh well.

Beckett tonight, so I've got that to look forward too.

scott h said...

I'm assuming you are out cold on the couch.

KAYLEE said...

//kaylee...where you been?//

TEX,I am here...Been taking my own beating lately!

Mattie said...

Bro, glad you got some Z's last night, and hope you get more tonight. Anxiously looking forward to hearing about the ex-presidents and animals that will inhabit your dreams. And just ignore Bub. The worst thing I've heard about Ambien is what it does to your ability to procreate, but I know you're not concerned about such things.

Ted D said...

All I know is this stuff is TOUGH on the old stomach: And it didn't help that much: I'm debating skipping it night.
And Bub, it's 8-1 Sox in the top of the 5th!

Christine E. said...

Hello everyone!

Yes, Joshua is mowing them down...LOVE IT!

And I am loving the article I have been reading about how the Clemens move is such a act of desperation
for the Yankees...Well, YEAH..

Sorry the meds did not work out for you, Ted, that sucks...:-(

Hope all is well!

Go Sox!

Mattie said...

Bub, how can you tell it messed your stomach up?!!! You're in the bathroom 10 hours a day, anyway!

scott h said...

I warned him but he wouldn't listen. BUT Jr don't skip tonight, then you will be out of wack. Take another Mothers little helpers.
you will be good as gold tomorow.

scott h said...

Ok Jr, I know you think the sun sets in Big Papi 's ____ . But come on. He doesn't THINK Bonds has done roids and if he did He doesn't THINK they help his swing. I know brotha's got to stick together but that is re dick u les.

I don't think he THINKS!!

Ted D said...

Hi Christine. Beckett pitched a whale of a game: only the long 8th inning by the Sox kept him from coming back.

Bub, I decided no pill: when the Good Lord's ready for me to sleep, I'll sleep. Enough with the medicine.

And for your Big Papi comment, yes you, me, and the rest of the free world thinks he took something. However, if I knew you or Matt or someone else had taken something, I'd try to protect you best I could. And with the liberal drug laws in the Dominican, it would not shock me if Ortiz, Manny, etc.. were guilty of this as well.

Ted D said...

Mattie, BTW, this is on the internet. My bathroom habits being put out there for the world to see: Not cool.

KAYLEE said...

JESUS you guys are as bad as me now:-)

scott h said...

Whoa, whoa their partner. When the good lord is ready for you to sleep, that sounds kinda like final resting place sleep.

Take the pill WE WILL ALLL sleep better. Plus your ball and chain is going to blame me, and just like in jail she only gets ONE phone call to me!

Tex said...

teds youn need too walkna few miless each day ..willntire youn out

Ted D said...

I've already told her: dude, I don't do medicine well. Felt like I was in a fog all day, and it got worse as the day went on.

As long as I don't run off into a ditch, I should be OK.

scott h said...

One final thought ,I don't see pap going to bat for mark mc.

Ted D said...

Uh oh.

Tex, sweetheart, you haven't been drinking have you?

Tex, PLEASE be careful.

scott h said...

Ok , your alright. I just checked the weather for NC today it was FOGGY.

Ted D said...

Bub, Marky Mark made his bed at that congressional hearing. Bond's has been militant in his denial's.

Like I said, I believe he took anything that would help him: I just don't think you throw a friend, fellow player, family member, etc.. under the bus.

Let the process take it's course: this cat that worked for the Mets is gonna drop the hammer on a lot of guys.

scott h said...

Dude have you seen Bonds without a shirt? He would HURT the bus!!

Ted D said...

Bub, he looks like he's 80% water:

I'm not arguing the point: I'm just saying how I can see another player, especially a guy like Ortiz, not be willing to pile on.

Curt Schilling, on the other hand, has NO problem letting everyone know what he thinks about Bonds.

And I have no problem with that either.

Ted D said...

9-2 Sox win!

Beckett is 7-0.

Haters move to the back of the line.

Christine E. said...

Whoo Hooo!

Go Sox!

Getting my new Bright RED Jeep Patriot tomorrow....Yeah!

Tex said...

tedi becareful doing awaht?

scott h said...

Not talking to anyone in general, but I saw where livers were going for about 50g's on Ebay

Ted D said...

Be careful if you go back out Tex: I don't want anything happening to you.

Just looking out, please don't get upset. Little brother looking out for big sister, that's all.

Mattie said...

Whoah...Jr., take the freaking pill Your stomach was upset because you were worrying about all the side-effects, plus you probably ate 15 pizza rolls for din-din. And the fog is from the fact that you haven't slept in 2 weeks! TAKE THE PILL!!!

Ted D said...

No pill and a new post Corn Muffin:

Remember how well me and Pretnezone did when I had surgery?

Me and medicine don't jeehaw.

It's all good: I'll be fine.
