What I would trade for 8 consecutive hours of uninterrupted sleep..

My Palm Pilot (it's broken, but I'm sure you could get it fixed)
My MP3 player
The car
All my books, CDs, DVDs and videotapes
My Kitchenaid
All my Star Wars collectibles
My entire postcard collection
My computer
My cat
My dog (Ok, she died last year, but if she were still alive. Sorry, Astro)
My life savings
Sex with Johnny Depp
A Honus Wagner baseball card
A Magic Wand made of maple with a unicorn hair core
Van Gogh's Starry Night

And for10 hours of pure, uninterrupted sleep, I would also perform depraved sexual acts, do your laundry, and make you a cheese sandwich before I crawled under the sheets.

Yeh, yeh. Go ahead, rake in the sympathy from the friends. I would trade all those things for FOUR hours of uninterrupted sleep* and I'm not going to let you get the upper hand in the Complaint Olympics.

*especially the ones that aren't even mine

Er, asterisk in the wrong place. It should have been next to "things." This is what sleep deprivation will do to a person.

aunt e (I now define "uninterrupted" as "noticibly woken for more than 10 minutes" so as not to include all those nights/early mornings where I vaguely notice the introduction of an additional small body to our bed)
