Mer, rhymes with bear

Why ams awake?

I don't do insomnia, but about every three years or so, my body forgets this.

I wonder if this has to do with the lowest barometric pressure in recorded history or whatever hyperbole they were using earlier today ("Earlier, the agency said the storm's pressure was worse than that produced the Blizzard of 1978, the March 1993 "Storm of the Century" or the November 1975 storm that sank the Edmund Fitzgerald freighter, memorialized in a song by Gordon Lightfoot."), or something else entirely.

In any event, my eyes can't de-sandpaper enough to consider doing something productive with this time, I don't think. I'm also yawning like crazy. The body is tired--the mind is definitely tired--so what gives? Dunno. Quite possibly the weather, though I also still have a lump of undigested dinner in my belly, in what seems to be the ongoing tummy upsets of fall 2010. Either way, am not a fan. Gaw.

Edited to add: Doesn't that news snippet I stole need a "which" or what?
