    I'm not's all fuzzy.

    I think about the same kinds of things I think about at any other time. Reviewing the day's events is among those things, though I do that during the day as well. I also think about typology, or tv shows, or other random things.

    lol... I also review and put days in order... and then read or watch something because that makes my brain shut up the best of anything... I can't sleep if I'm thinking

    Think about all the crap I have to do tomorrow.
    Think about the crazy dreams Ive had these past few nights.
    Random thoughts.
    About what I should do..
    About what I want to do..

    In order to calm my mind, I usually play a little game with myself, consisting of running through the alphabet and naming one thing of a certain theme starting with each letter. Usually I do either things from Star Trek or Harry Potter, but I've also done breeds of dogs and other random themes. Sometimes I do a variation of the game, where I try to name 5 things or 10 things starting with the letter, especially when I do Star Trek, as there is ample material.

    (I find the people that control external noises etc weird/scary. Do you do that because you live alone, or because your paranoid, or just because it's connected to your type(s)?

    Falcarius tries not to think of anything as he would only over analyse his day, and wont be able to get asleep; hence, why he goes to sleep with BBC World Service on the radio.

    I try to remember all my ex-girlfriends, although not necessarily naked, usually it has a mind clearing effect like counting sheep

    I usually do an inventory of all the things I need to resolve that I haven't yet. If I know I have some kind of plan, ANY plan for how to take care of unfinished business, I can rest easy. Otherwise, I will not fall asleep.

    Oh yes! And Lark reminded me, that I compulsively say a little prayer-poem I composed as a kid.
