computer...clearly not
music and movies....OK
video games ...only if I'm really tired
cleaning....that might wake me up more
sex works...you finish up and cuddle a bit then ZZZZZZ...it's just waking up your partner to do so...they might get pissed you woke them....then no sex...and your back to square one

:lol:

Loved this one! I don't have a partner now, but boy can I relate!

I sit at the computer and post here!
I love IM'ing with strangers. (Like that annonymous thing!)
Listen to music
Watch boring documentaries on TV

Libby - I do almost that excat same thing.
During the week though, if I have insomnia I'm usually watching something really boring to try and make me fall asleep. But I also like to talk to people - I'm bad about calling everyone in my phone book and going HELP I CAN'T SLEEP! Then they proceed to tell me a boring story and I get pissy cause it doesn't help.
Music wakes me up so I don't do that alot.....
Try watching like Forensic Files or something - They are entertaining yet can sooth you into a night of nightmares...lol

Nornally watching a movie or reading a book sends me to sleep, even when I really want to keep watching or reading.:biggrin:
