Early morning vices

Haven't written in a couple of days.  No sleep, dries up the creative juices in a way.  I am at the mercy of my neighbors, whose time schedule I am on.  I fall asleep in the spaces of time, when they allow me to.  I thought, perhaps this would be a good time to plow through my reading pile, to lull myself back into sleep mode.  My collection right now is finishing "A Town Like Paris" written by Bryce Corbett.  Its a funny book, so not the most suitable for early morning (1:00am) reading.  Its about an Australian guy who moves to Paris, writes about his observations.
Others are: Three Cups Of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin, An Autobiography by Vanessa Redgrave, The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain and The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan.
Thats quite a smattering across the literary board.  But then there's also flicking through the latest Gourmet magazine which is dedicated entirely to Paris.  Where you can eat for under $50! Best flea markets. Or the new Elle Decor.
Hoping we can get the continual noise situation worked out - don't understand why one household can wreck havoc with so many lives.  Maybe they will allow me to sneak in a nap!
Going to write on my sister's blog now...that will bring everything back into perspective............

Oh, I can relate - I am sleep deprived due to the obnoxious construction of the opposite of Craftsman faux Craftsman McMansion going up next door to me. From them eroding the land right up to my property line where my garage is precariously perched to the lovely aroma of the Port-o-Potty, from the noise of hammering to the chopping down of 200 year old tulip poplars, I have gone off the edge and am now completely bat s*** crazy. I'm going to check out some of your book recommendations to soothe me. I also highly recommend Entertainment Weekly to you :)

Oh no - thats much worse than what I am going thru. I have just resorted to any music with a heavy beat and speakers up against the wall.
Sadly I am in the entertainment industry, so Entertainment Weekly is work for me. Thats probably why I am overly obsessed with design.

Oh no, EW as work! I think my dream job is to write "What to Watch" for them :) It's my favorite "Calgon, take me Away" bathtub reading!
