The insomnia's actually much-improved - I'd set myself a target of three decent pill-free nights' sleep in a row before going back on the caffeine (which I've been off for a couple of months) and have been getting quite close to that actually happening. So yay for that :)
I used to perform insomnia calculations, with the : being an equals sign, and being allowed to insert operators where I liked. For example:
2:11 -> 2 = 1+1
2:12 -> 2 = 1*2
2:13 -> 2 = -1+3
That sounds quite familiar :)
One thing I used to do on coach journeys was to try and form meanings from the time reflected from the clock at the front of the coach in the windows (it being easier reflected because 3 -> E and so forth). One sequence being (AFAICR)
0:20 -> 0S:0 -> a medical terminology lesson
0:21 -> 1S:0 -> nihilism
0:22 -> SS:0 -> eventual outcome of world war 2
...and so forth.
Gaah for insomnia but YAY for spiffy you!
The conjunctions of digital clocks - and, especially, digital watches - still delight my inner geek.
...Said hairyears, who also has an outer geek, an intermediate geek, and an n-dimensional extrusion of geekiness extending across vast tracts of hyperspace.
I still have the Casio digital watch that I received on entering secondary school, and I recall my breathless anticipation and nerdish satisfaction at seeing all three sequential datetimes:
