I'm so sleeepy..

I'm really really tired & it's not even 5:30 yet. I just want to go take a nappy but I know that if I did that I would never be able to fall asleep tonight, and that would just really suck for me tomorrow. I still have homework to do for algebra & at least 3 loads of laundry sitting in the hall, sorted, waiting to be did. The more I think about it the more tired I get. So, this tiredness got me to thinking about this commercial I saw for Dateline awhile back about these people that can never sleep & eventually die from it. I did some research and found out it's called Fatal Familial Insomnia. It's really pretty terrible, I can't imagine having to die that way. But, seeing as i'm a hypochondriac, i'm sure I really wont be able to sleep tonight and the reason will be because of my newly acquired disease of Fatal Insomnia, even though no one in my family has ever had it and it's pretty much genetic. Below is a picture of one of the uncles in the family that got the disease & whose brain they examined after he was dead. Here is the link to watch the whole segment on Dateline: Fatal Familial Insomnia

Well, enough of this procrastinating, let me go do some homework before the SAG awards come on. Holla! I love award show season.
