Weapon of Sleep Destruction


Your blog has been determined to be a weapon of sleep destruction and as such, I order that you shut it down. Your friends, casually keeping up with your blog, may have read your entry dated August 18 of this year and the comments which accompanied it. Reading the suggestions meant for you, they may have reserved The Time-Traveler's Wife at the library--which caused me, I mean them, to stay up until after 3 am this morning sobbing and finishing the book. This might explain why when I got to work this morning, the first order of business was drugs.

P.S. Bridget- you are implicated in Laura's crime by suggesting the book in a public forum, but your testament to bleary-eyed mornings in the offending text suggests that you have already suffered your punishment. You're getting off easy this time.

I know, I know. The Time Traveler's Wife did quite a deal on me as well. I was casually reading it on trains and at night. Until one day I wasn't feeling well, so I decided I'd read instead of going out.

I too was up until 3 am that night sobbing and reading. And then after I finally finished the book I still couldn't sleep. And then I was sick for a week. I blame Bridget. It's all her fault.

I agree--let's blame Bridget. Although I will soon possibly be to blame for a breakout of sleepless, sobbing nights in Colorado Springs. I can't help it--people ask about my weekend and I am compelled to tell them about the awesome book I read!

Why am I never sure what the heck is going on? Are y'all up all night watching Oprah or something?

Blame me all you want, ladies. I know what you're really doing is thanking me for a truly outstanding read! Besides, I have my own person to blame. I blame Tammy. She let me borrow the book and has yet to get it back. In fact, she'll be very lucky if she sees it again!

I'm with Laura. Not only did that book keep me up all night, but I couldn't sleep when I finished it either. Now, perhaps Laura's lack of sleep stemed from her cold. But I was haunted. I still am. In a good way. It adds a whole new imaginative dimension to a stroll through my neighborhood. And I offer myself up to it. So you're both welcome very much!
