Penny wise; pound foolish?? Or just getting senile??

Missed my Meals On Wheels today because I slept thru an entire hour of my alarm clock beeping at me.
The clock was in the living room, I was in the bedroom but because I was too darn cheap to spring for a second clock, I missed the delivery. Now I've splurged but that means i'm not only out the money but also the meal.

I hate being so stupid.

Okay, now I gots two alarm clocks but the new one only goes for eight minutes and has no hope of waking the dead, so what use is it to me. And now every time there is a transient voltage fluctuation, I have to reset TWO times and TWO alarms.
Well, Food Bank day approaches so I guess I got something to look forward to, but I still don't see why the social workers won't authorize a black jack tutor.

I need a new car and even though the casinos around here are Seminole owned they are my only hope for money or a new car, but if I can't retain basic strategy in my noggin, how am I agonna win?

I do know there is some medical talent on the WOV and DT boards so if anyone has ideas about post prandial somnolence please let me know. Its often thought that even a light meal can induce the body to shunt blood away from the brain and send it to the stomach but that is a myth and has always been a myth. Something biochemical induces post prandial somnolence and I hate having to deal with falling asleep if I just look at a picture of a bowl of sugar, much less actually consume any food.
I swear even coffee seems to put me to sleep. Too much xanthine oxidase? Too little xanthine oxidase? I don't know which. Wanted to head to the local Seminole casino but made the mistake of eating breakfast and then slept for five hours after just having had cereal and milk. Strange. And annoying!!


Had Little Red Beans in tomato sauce (trace amounts oregano, pepper) for lunch. Not certain of exact time but think it was before 1:00pm. Irresistable desire to lie down next thing I was aware of was waking up at 6:15pm feeling quite groggy and thirsty. Entire afternoon gone!

Going to get some cat scan of my heart later this week but for some reason I have to go and listen to them yack at me about it first. Don't know if cardiac output is related to sleep or not.
