I woke up several times last night, due in no small part to the alcohol I consumed over dinner with my girlfriends. I knew that I'd wake up ralphing if I didn't flush my system with water, so I tried to drink a glass each time I awoke.

At 5:55 am, I laid down with a belly full of water and couldn't fall back asleep. This is unusual behavior for me - I can ALWAYS fall back asleep. But not today.

Why, you ask, is today different than any other day?

Because -- INEXPLICABLY-- I somehow got "The Bear Necessities" from Disney's The Jungle Book stuck in my head. Couldn't get it out. Complete with visions of an animated, dancing bear, and his loin-clothed companion.

THIS is why I hate animated films. Now you know.
