Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)

No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.

Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

Yeah, I saw the thread title & started reading. great idea.

I always look for the like button, too. In fact, I've started to just put "like" on some posts instead of writing something. Chincy (sp?), I know.

Tink has been my fav too for years... I have many Tink things... when I had my 1st surgery my MIL sent me a big Tink blanket and I had that blanket  with me in the hospital the whole time... the nurses would come in and say oh thats so cute did your daughter let you borrow that...lol...

Tink I got to see the original Peter Pan with Mary Martin in the theater in the round in detroit in about 1956. Captain Hook took a swipe at our noses as he was coming down the isle. It was magical MY twin and I were six. I've been in love with the show my whole life. It was magical how they made Tinkerbell be real in that venue , to us kids. AND when they asked everyone to clap to help TINk live--it seemed so real.

Hello ladies and fellow chickens!!! I will probably be up here with you all till around 2-3 am. I just can't even think about falling asleep till then. I get more energy at night too. The only thing that seems to even remotely work, and we're talking only a few nights a week it actually works, is taking 2 "sleepytime" teabags and making that, along with (2) 25 mg sleep aid (diphenhydramine, basically benadryl) and wait to feel the sleep come on... and like i said, it only works sometimes!! I wish sometimes i could just fall asleep like my husband! shit, 2 vicodin and a beer doesn't even work!

so... a $34,000 dress? that's a third of how much my house cost!! unbelievable!!

i was watching dc cupcakes earlier too. it was the one where katherine got engaged and they were trying to make a huge engagement ring out of cupcakes! it was pretty cool

well, gonna go check out the other threads, but i will be back, mark my word!

staying cancer free is my new full time job!! Dx 10/14/2010, IDC, 2cm, Stage II, 2/9 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-

HDangel sweetie glad you came , but your already gone, hope i'm asleep when you come back.(((H)))

Tink I can remember almost every scene. It was on tv years ago and I had a tape of it , but again greg didn't like it so...... I will try to find it if it's in good enough shape I will try and get it transferred to cd.. To me , it beats any of the stuff in the last two decades.

Valjean still here where in MI. TINK and I know each other from several threads. You should check out OMG they found a cure for stupid. But start with page 1 it's great laughs
