Old man sleeping habits.

Lately I have been zonked out on the couch by 9 or 9:30. But then I am up again at midnight or thereabouts! End then watch too much TV instead of getting more sleep. It's not because of insomnia or anything; it's more driven by feeling you can just suck in great quantities of the stuff while the world contracts, darkens and slumbers all around you. You feel like your in a cave, a hermit at the top of the mountain. Mainlining Netflix and OnDemand and Amazon Prime and occasionally wondering what ever happened to awesomely bad late night programming on the actual TV—long dead outside a brief flash here or there—and then realizing you need to be up and mobile in three hours, then two hours, then an hour and you pull the plug and force yourself to sleep.
