The "I can't sleep" thread


#1

In another thread there was the suggestion to create a new thread where people can meet if they can’t sleep. Here we go. :slight_smile:

Feel free to talk why you can’t sleep or other things (for example why you are sitting in front of a computer on a Saturday night where everybody else goes on parties…).


What would you put in Room 101?
Do you consider Monkey Island games not made by Ron "non canon"?

Well, it´s noon right now. So…

Oh, shut your foodhole!:angry:


#3

Not on the other side of the earth. :slight_smile:

Hey, I was yesterday online too! :crazy_face:


#4

You mean it´s always 5 o´clock somewhere? :cocktail::dizzy_face:


#5

Hm… After reading this it seems indeed to be very unrealistic. But let’s wait. Maybe somebody from the dark side of the earth steps in and can report…

Monkey Ron non canon?
Key Mon Non?
Non Ron con?
Oh mon!
No Man Non!
Ron Man Con!
Mon Ron On?
On won Ron?
Mon Key Won?
Nor now!
Won row!
Nom Oh!
Ron wow on row!

:thinking:

I really should be getting more sleep! :sleepy:

You need to do something to distract your mind.

How about saying a few new Italian words?
se hai sonno vai dal nonno
(If you are asleep go to your grandfather)
It doesn’t mean anything, it just rhymes :grin:

I was thinking recently that we should have a thread for when people can’t sleep. I go through phases of insomnia so it’d be nice to have somewhere to spit crap.

But, y’know, I don’t want to be the only one in there.


The "I can't sleep" thread

I have insomnia too, especially on horse* between winter and spring.

*period of time including the ending of the first bit and the beginning of the second one


#10

Loving all these phrases :smile: that’s interesting though - I never thought about whether different times of year are worse.


#11

You obviously wouldn´t be.

Also I´d really like to know what the hell I wrote there? Is it anything?!


#12

I’m not sure. Let’s have a look.

Monkey Ron non canon? Is this MI non-canon?
Key Mon Non? Is it backwards?
Non Ron con? Is it conning Ron?
Oh mon! Oh man! (Jamaican)
No Man Non! No man no!
Ron Man Con! Ron the man is conned!
Mon Ron On? Is Ron back on?
On won Ron? Has Ron been de-conned?
Mon Key Won? And MI victorious?
Nor now! Here’s Nor Treblig!
Won row! He has a good argument!
Nom Oh! It’s tasty!
Ron wow on row! Ron wins.

Verdict: no.

Yeah it was really just me noticing the Mon not Ron non can on syllables in the title and playing around a bit with the words trying to use some sort of meter.

And of course you could have skipped everything and jumped to that conclusion right ahead but you still took the time to try to analyse every line.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#14

It reminded me a bit of Wendy Cope’s poem - The Uncertainty of the Poet.


#15

You know, that´s not that bad actually, I like that!:slightly_smiling_face:


#16

Yeah, she’s one of my favourite poets :slightly_smiling_face:


#17

I was on the verge but was trying to work out if other people would use it.


#18

Ehrm… We are on the TWP forum. It will go instantly off-topic. So you shouldn’t worry about that at all!


#19

I wouldn’t say that. The more vague a title is the more possibilities are therein. I think a problem we have is that many titles are really really specific (for instance “Games bought during the steam summer sale 2017” quickly turned into “games I recently bought”).


#20

Well I assumed it will kind of be an off-topic thread anyway, filled with whatever people want to ramble about in their state of insomnia :wink:
