Once a week I always get an evening where I get really REALLY sleepy around 9.30, with eyes closing, and having to go to bed 'right then' and just fall asleep. Can barely brush my teeth, even.
It's either Tuesdays or Thursdays, super regular, I really don't get this - silly body!

I went through a very annoying phase of waking up at 4:30 in the morning to pee. I could just about set my clock to it.
Oh don't get me started on that ;D
I've read it's from my medication, though, and it's not that bad - if it's not really close to the alarm time...

Today I'm dragging through work. I wish I could go home right now >:(

if you eat dry mango or apricots  that are bright yellow/orange they are full of sulphur try finding the less appealing brown coloured ones from a health food shop they will not bloat you.

I wish this would happen to me on occasion.  It always takes me awhile to fall asleep while for my wife the second her head hits the pillow she's out.

Well, I made it through my ten-day break from sweets and pastries. Just bought myself a cinnamon bun from the university cafeteria.

Hallelujah.

Real quick: Could you native English speakers tell me what to call a thick sewage pipe that is located on the surface?

Not sure we have or had such a thing in the UK. The Romans did a fine line in buried sewers by medieval times open sewers(with some notable exceptions) were back, often the street. In Victorian times we were back to buried sewers. What the Americans would term storm drains  also exist here but are below ground these are designed to take rainwater into rives and away to prevent flooding. In cities these often follow the path of smaller rivers and streams that have been covered over by streets or buildings.

It would be an open sewer wouldn't it? They had them in Jakarta. Great fun. Dry season the city stank
.Wet season: you were wading through piss and faecal matter.

ahh but an open sewer isn't contained in a pipe above ground. Usually its a gutter in the road or just the road itself.

Interesting, and certainly puts me in mind of my younger self.

You could dress up as Little Red Riding hood. Find someone big to play the wolf grandma and you'll be set for next Halloween.   ;D
