Things I Think At 4 AM

  • Did I take my meds?
  • No, seriously, I remember thinking I had to take them. I sort of remember picking up the bottle. But maybe that was before. I should get pill boxes, but then I’d forget to use them and freak myself out.
  • Do Fremen take showers? Like…sand showers or something? I mean, they always used the sand to scour pots and pans clean, but that would hurt. Wait, was that Star Trek? I REMEMBER SOMEBODY DOIN THAT, who was it
  • Okay, so if Jessica could control whether or not she conceived a boy, could she control whether she conceived at all? I mean, did she intentionally conceive Alia when she did or was Alia an accident? Why did she wait that long
  • Brian’s books might actually answer some of this.
  • God, poor Alia.
  • I still want to write that thing about Paul having a twin and the twin having a thing with Irulan and…JUST STOP YOU DON’T HAVE TIME FOR DUNE FANFICTION.
  • I wonder if you could use the same concept in Synn. Just like…noble twins and one of them having an affair with the princess…different setting, but you’d never be happy trying to keep Jessica in character and killing Leto anyway.
  • OH, what was that thing with Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty we were thinking about the other day? I want to think about that!
  • Well, I want to GO TO SLEEP.
  • Party pooper.
  • Oh, for godsake.
  • So, did you take your meds?
  • Yes. Maybe. I DON’T KNOW. I must have. Go to sleep.
  • I’m TRYING.
  • Stop talking then.
  • I’m not talking. You’re talking.
  • This isn’t even happening. Seriously. I’m not arguing with myself about whether or not I’m talking.
  • What time is it now?
  • 4:30.
  • I need a drink.
  • NO. Then you’ll have to pee.
  • But I’m THIRSTY….
