Bedtime Stories

Though I enjoy various talk radio programs, I can't stand listening to talk radio while I'm trying to fall asleep. Music is great, but my brain will absolutely not tune out spoken language no matter how tired I am. It stays way too busy analyzing what I hear. (This would be a great way to torture me, if anybody is out there making notes.) Since drmellow likes to listen to talk radio at night, I frequently find myself across the hall or downstairs on the sofa after an hour or two, if I want to catch any Zs.

I usually request BBC World Service if I'm going to have to lie awake and listen to something. Recently, I discovered that I can sort of half-way pay attention if the newsreader has a Scottish accent. I'm still focused on EVERY. SINGLE. WORD... but it's not *quite* as annoying. I guess I'm partially lulled by the sing-song musicality of it.

So, tonight's goal is to try and fall asleep before the news goes off and the station returns to musical programming. Oh, no... Are the British people back? Drat. I need more Fiona MacDonald.
