Sleeping

I'd like to live alone,
but it's crowded inside, sometimes-
Look right into another's eye
I thought I could fly,
but that has been done before.
I'm feeling empty - empty inside
A life I never knew, a room without a view,
My life begins anew, my life it ends anew
It's like I've never never never never never been here before
--- Never,
Gravity Kills

Remember - when your body tells you to stay awake some more, that 3:00 in the morning isn't too late, that's when you swat it to the ground. Just swat it to the ground. I saw the following quote in the discussion about robots cheering up the elderly - I think it's funny, but it's also disturbingly close to the mindset of some of the people who work at the nursing home in my hometown:

"Old people don't need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use."

-Homer Simpson

Now I have to eat, finish writing exercises, and combinatorics homework. Yippy skippy.

PS - (for bonus points) - When somebody asks you to fill in the song lyric for " Who loves you? And who do you love? WHO LOVES YOU? AND WHO DO YOU LOVE? < insert something here >", the answer is "The Messiah, The Messiah" .
