How about that, twitter can be useful

I'm not following that many, and they are kind of a random set. One of them is Tex Perkins - singer/songwriter  (or some facsimile thereof) who tweeted that there was a new album coming - order from JB hifi and get an autographed copy.

And I now have an autographed copy of said album. :)

Breaking bad sleep cycles

Unfortunately, not entirely breaking it but...

I tend to wake up at least once per night and was finding it hard to go back to sleep. Problem one - my dad did this for years and mentioned it most days. Which leads one to the fear that it's something you inherited. Problem two - brain switches on to hyperdrive and there are too many thoughts.

So the solution? Well, much like using a basic meditation technique. Take deep slow breaths and concentrate only on the breathing. That helps keep brain out of overdrive (or push it down out of that mode) and sleep comes within 5 to 10 minutes by my estimate. Tis good.

I can understand this

Masterpiece The world failed to change! Indeed.

Wow, that's very cool

I was just cruising through blogger options when I came across Some of the views can be very interesting Others won't work so well with the blogging that I do - snapshots - not recommended. Still, that's a very interesting feature.
