I've meant to post the last couple of nights, but sleepiness has robbed me of the ability to form a single coherent sentence.

This state of affairs is not without irony. I'm a pretty prodigious snorer, to which anyone who's slept within three rooms of me in the last fifteen years or so will attest. I recently had a sleep study done and the diagnosis was obstructive sleep apnea.

To treat this, I'm supposed to wear something called a CPAP mask when I sleep. It is slightly less comfortable to wear than it looks. In fact, it's so uncomfortable that I wake up several times a night needing to adjust it.

Here's where the irony comes in: the apnea, among other things, causes me to wake up at night. The CPAP is supposed to eliminate that. So, the cure for my condition has side effects that make me feel worse than when I wasn't treating it.

There you have it. Hopefully, I can either adjust to this thing soon or come up with another solution. Either way, if I seem to be rambling more than usual, now you know why.

Lack of sleep and wits did not stop me from thoroughly enjoying the Eddie from Ohio appearance at Borders in Fairfax on Wednesday. They've just released their sixth studio recording, Quick, and it has immediately taken its place with their earlier discs as part of the soundtrack of my life.

EFO has been my favorite band since the mid-Nineties, and as great as their CDs are, they are five times better in person. If you get the chance to see them perform, do it. They'll be traveling all over the country this autumn, so keep your eyes peeled.

Also Wednesday, I got my letter from the government letting me know the size of my share of the ill-conceived tax rebate. This reminded me of a site I've wanted to pass on for a while, If you want to put this money to decent use, go to the site and take the pledge. You'll be glad you did.
