    I'm having a hard time sleeping. I've tried all of the normal sleepy times type of things and nothing has worked. I'm almost to the point that I'm willing to try anything.

    Not just in relation to my problem, what weird home remedies have you tried and/or use for various things?

    I'm thinking since it's Friday I'll just get drunk so sleep will be my friend for the night.

    I have awful sleep cycles - that I cant fix, but I try to mitigate. Heres what has helped -

    -Cut back on caffeine in-take. Dont drink coffee or anything caffeinated after 12 PM. You might think you have a tolerance that would dissipate through the afternoon, but you would be surprised when you cut it off.
    -No tablet or phone surfing in the bedroom. Trick your mind into thinking that the bedroom is only for sleep and hanky panky. I have my alarm on my phone, but Im diligent to not use it for social media, web browsing, etc. while Im on the bed. Another thought on it is just to try and cut off electronic use 30 minutes before you go to sleep. Calm the brain down.
    -Change your sheets and linen more frequently and rotate the mattress
    -Try and fix your circadian rhythm. Depending on what your daily schedule is like, try and wake with the sunrise.
    -All of this would work with consistently, which means you cant really stay up til 3 on the weekend and expect to go to bed at 10 M-F. Doesnt mean that people cant do it, but it doesnt help if you have trouble sleeping.

    If all else fails, go have a sleep study done.

    Apparently I'm an idiot and can't figure out how to see my Rep alerts. If someone sends me one longer than a short sentence, all I see is something like this : "gave you a reputation point for your post in the thread Rant & Rave Thread. With the following comment: Mine happened playing touch football with my step son. My arm..."

    I've had a few others that did the same "..." How do I see the rest of the comment?

    There is a tab on your profile page, which you can get to by clicking on your avatar, then the link that says "profile page" in the box that pops up.

    I originally had this typed out as a rep comment, then realized that wouldn't be very helpful.

    Our HR person just commented that my beard is getting long. Is this a compliment or just another passive aggressive "suggestion"?

    It would be nice if I could just take whatever she says at face value but I'm smarter than that now. She's just jealous, I know it.

    Assume that it was a compliment.

    Re: the sleep stuff. Every time I hear people talk about "difficulty sleeping" I realize how lucky I am, I guess. When I go to bed, it takes me less than 5 minutes to fall asleep and I don't move until my alarm goes off about 99% of the time. The exceptions are if for some reason I can't fall asleep, I will just get up and read for 30 minutes, and then I'm right out.

    You could test the jealousy angle by asking to "see her beard."

    I had a meeting this week with a client with whom I had spoken on the phone and exchanged emails, but had not seen in person since October. I haven't shaved or even trimmed it since November 1. When I walked into her office, she said "wow" about three times and then asked if she could touch it.

    Because I am romantic as fuck, I just bought the girl an eye gouger key ring, shaped like A KITTY!

    Also, the pepper spray came in a breast cancer awareness container. Goddamn, get some of that feminism. Just slide ride up in that shit.

    Now, I am going to go buy some power tools and eat a pizza. This is what it feels like to be a man. Come suck on this cock, there's enough room for all of you.

    I see what you did there.

    On a whim I recently shaved my beard off for the first time since my wedding. Wife is pissed because she feels like she's having sex with a stranger even though I consulted her beforehand. Guess now I know she'll never cheat.

    I'm guessing HR lady is around 5'2 so that's a foregone conclusion.

    I'm not going full Grizzly Adams like that... yet. Ms. Katokoch is only now starting to appreciate me having more than just one or two weeks' worth of growth on my face at a time like I did for most of last year. Since November though I've only been maintaining it with some weekly trimming for the most part. It's just a matter of time until she just throws my razors away, I know it. I think the entire world has agreed that I look better with facial hair and I'm fine with it.

    You wanna borrow some guns for 'murica's sake?

    I've seen those pokey thingies at gun ranges and have wondered if people actually buy them.

    Ohhh. I guess I thought that worked because usually when I get the truncated rep, I just click on the post and then click on the rep number from there. </nevermind>

    I walk to my car with my key in my fist, protruding outward through my fingers so that I can slash somebody if they sneak up on me. I guess the kitty is halfway between brass knuckles and key knife.
