I don't get enough! Collecting 100 million words worth of people talking about sleep on Twitter hasn't really helped in making me more rested....but it is fascinating looking at how people bond around the they make "the ordinary visible to others” (Oulasvirta et al., 2010: 2 emphasis in original).

You can probably guess one of the most common patterns in my corpus:
Morpheus and Iris, by Pierre-Narcisse Guérin, 1811

I'm so tired but I just can't sleep! 
Well I can't sleep, this sucks. Too much running through my mind. 
Ahhh can't sleep 
@User I can't sleep because my ear hurts so bad :(:( 
Laying here in bed scrolling through twitter because I can't sleep yet again oh fucking well.
I'm writing up the work I'm doing at the moment with this corpus (think I'll call it MORPHEUS) as a paper provisionally titled Domestic practices and microblogging. Hope to have it done by the end of semester.
