Rotisserie Facts

The fun thing about rotisserie pain induced insomnia is how your mind can just flit around like a squirrel and it doesn’t matter one watt. So in my spare time between 11 and 3 I made a random list of useless info to share and then tried to commit it to memory. Without further ado here it is.

In no particular order.

  • The more you need lip balm the less likely you are to find the 18 tubes of it strewn about
  • 5 second rule does not apply to food at the beach or sterile instruments dropped in the OR
  • The level of snoring loudness seems directly proportional to the closer the partner is to actually falling asleep
  • If the sheets are vintage 1965 don’t expect the pillows to be any better
  • The further you are from home increase the likelihood of having forgotten something important
  • ???

The last one has alluded my brain during the day time. Seems to me I tried to spin the last one into a gratitude one. Insomnia sucks but there are A LOT worse things to deal with. Relatively temporary back/pelvic pain is not fun but it’s going to get better. Like one of the fine days she says hopefully. I even have a date for it to get better!

Got any random lists of strange thoughts that flit through your brain? I mean, help me out here. I can’t possibly be the only one. Can I?



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. I’ve never been a good sleeper so I have a lot of experience with mental lists. I do find that if I write things down, rather then try to remember them, I have better luck getting back to sleep. Funny though, once I wake up in the morning and look at my list, I notice two things: 1) my handwriting in the dark is terrible, and 2) few of my “important” thoughts were all that important 🙂


    1. Janis, Oh I love your two items!! Those fit in perfectly with rotisserie facts! I wrote down a crazy weird dream once but could hardly read my writing! I try to do repetitive things to lull my brain to sleep but for me it is usually that I can’t get my back comfy. It’s certainly better since menopause and work ended and I did 3 sessions of acupuncture. Hope you get some sleep on your holidays as insomnia in someone else’s house is so hard! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Sorry for the late response. Bernie


  2. Yup, you’re definitely not the only one with random thoughts flitting through brain at 3 am. Here’s mine (it kinda goes well with your sleepless theme). Dolphins sleep with one eye open (to stay on the lookout for predators). Despite this half-sleep state, researchers claim that said dolphins are well-rested and alert in the daytime. Now, why can’t we do that?! 😀

    1. I did not know this! Yeah exactly if we could wake up rested after keeping up with the predators in our mind! Thanks for letting me know I’m not alone in this crazy sleepless world. Some nights only a crazy thunderstorm can wake me and some nights I rarely sleep. What can you do. Not much but try to write a funny post about it.

  3. Sorry to hear of your insomnia Bernie. I have always been a light sleeper, and I have often said, it is not getting up to go pee that keeps me from sleep, it is that I turn my brain on. I hear of people getting 9-10 hours a night and wonder what I am doing wrong. Getting 5 in segments is often the best I can do. As to what random thoughts I have….I often start thinking up poetry lines to write for blog posts and then struggle to retain them until I open up my page. Some of my best lines have been written under the influence of exhaustion. Of course, I am exhausted, so how would I know. Stay well. Allan

    1. “writing under the influence of exhaustion leads to exhausting thoughts” – that’s a great rotisserie fact! I actually sleep like a log once I am asleep but it’s the getting there that is often the issue. I am hopeful that maybe I have finally turned the corner on this pelvic/back/hip issue. Thanks for the stay well wishes — I feel like with Covid starting to climb again we are all going to have to remain vigilant. Take care and have a good week. Bernie
