Alien busting

The people who bought Dad's trailer home brought over his television today as they are going back to Mexico. It's so nice to have a real television. It has a screen that is bigger than my computer at work. Wow!

I'm watching a very interesting program on Nova. It's about a plane that disappeared in the Andes over fifty years ago. Despite a wide ranging search they didn't find a single sign. One of the theories was abduction by aliens. There was even a UFO magazine named after the last word sent by the plane and repeated "sendac". Now they've found the plane, high in the Andes. It crashed. No aliens. No abduction. The human remains they found seemed to have died instantly from a high speed crash into the glacier. Why do people so desperately want to ascribe all mysteries to aliens?

I'm so tired but not sleepy because of napping all day. I hope I can get to sleep tonight. I think I'll take a sleeping pill because I feel better but I'm so tired that I really need to sleep tonight if I'm going to go to work tomorrow. I could take some more nyquil but that is so nasty tasting.

Daytime television so sucks and I haven't been able to concentrate on a book. I keep looking at online forums but then doze a little and when I wake up I have to log in again. Being home sick would be nice if I could concentrate and catch up on reading or enjoy television but I am always sick with flu and cold which make you woozy instead of broken legs or something where I could be home on sick pay but able to still think.
