Wrote part of a song this morning.  Yay!  If I finish it, and record it, I'll post a link. 

Bounced through the morning, hit the wall about 3 pm, largely due to yesterday's insomnia.  Wound up talking about software for an hour with someone who probably had higher priorities for his time but seemed glad to be distracted from them. 

Watched S02E12 of TW, the episode in which we learn everybody's back story.  I must say, I don't really buy Owen's.  I can believe that he might have fallen in love before Diane the pilot, but the considerate, earnest boyfriend we meet is not the Owen whose mother told him as a child, "I don't have to like you!" 

I don't think heartbreak, tragedy, and the cover-up would have been enough to turn Owen from a decent chap into the rat-bastard he can so frequently be.  To be that adept at twisting the knife, verbally, and that ruthless about using people, he has to have been honing his skills since childhood.

Besides, if he'd been actually at the point of planning his wedding with as loving and lovable a girl as his fiancee was, would he have been as baffled as he apparently was about why he felt more for Diane than just lust?

Agreed about Owen's characterization in that ep. Maybe he tried for the "normal" life and then reverted when it didn't work out.

I can't sleep either. :(

So sorry about the not sleeping. There seems to be an epidemic of this!

Today, astonishingly, I came fully awake at 6:30, with no lingering sleeplessness hangover! I'm at home until my doctor's appointment (10:50 am). I'll probably work from home just to keep myself occupied!
