Can't win for losing and other assorted stuff

Thursday night went to bed at 10 - windows open, a/c off. After about a half hour, I was schvitzing and uncomfortable so I did the unthinkable, I closed the windows and turned on the a/c. And here it is 3:30am and I haven't slept at all because...

I can't sleep with the windows closed, even in the Winter, and I can't sleep with the a/c running because of the noise. Also, can't sleep when it's hot and muggy. So basically most of the Summer I don't sleep.

While I'm lying in bed playing a game on my iPad, the words "De Bricassart" pop into my head. Then the image of Richard Chamberlain flits across my consciousness. Now you may know that De Bricassart is the name of a character in the book "The Thorn Birds" and that Richard Chamberlain played the part in the television mini-series.  I understand flashing on the image of Richard Chamberlain, he played the part but why in hell would that name play on a loop in my head to begin with?

All day Thursday I felt somewhat elated. No particular reason, just feeling positive and confident that things would go well. I'm pretty sure I won't be feeling that way today.
