Hey moonlight cowgirls! It’s Friday, which means it’s time for us to put our feet up and have a bowl of Lucky Charms and tell each other all about what our weeks were like. The Friday Open Thread is here, and we wanna hear all about your joys and sorrows and that weird recurring dream you had when you were a kid that you’ve never told anyone about because it still kind of scares you to think about. Wheeeee!
Speaking of weird recurring dreams, I want to talk about sleep, and how we’re all getting there.
For the past few weeks I’ve had the worst insomnia I’ve had in a long time, and it is really cramping my style. Last night I read all of this longread about Susan Berman’s death and fretted my way through an extremely involved anxiety scenario about what I would do if someone who worked for Google decided they wanted to systematically ruin my life before finally falling asleep around 2:30 or 3. I think I need to chill out.
So help me out here: what are your tried and true ways to relax and unwind at the end of a long day? What do you do no matter how hard you try you can’t fall asleep? Have you, unlike me, ever actually seen Sleepless in Seattle? I always confuse it with You’ve Got Mail. Do you live in Seattle and think of that movie title bitterly when you can’t sleep? What advice do you have to keep me from ending up like that lady in The Babadook? (Also if anyone just wants to talk to me about The Babadook, that’s cool too, I really liked that movie and want to talk about it endlessly.) Anyways help me out, y’all. I’m a mess over here.
How To Post A Photo In The Comments:

2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix! KINDA LIKE THIS:
How To Post A Video In The Comments, Too:
