Cheese induced insomnia

I didn't end up going to bed until after 1 am. The sleep I got was not very restful. First of all I dreamt about cheese. It was the first dream I've ever had that included aromas. I dreamt of the Munster, and I smelled it in my dream. That was not a very pleasant experience.

I knew I wasn't going to get a lot of sleep, but I expected to get more than I did. My hotel room did not have an alarm clock in it. In fact it had no clock at all. So I used my phone.

Since I needed to be at work around 9 am I set the alarm for 8 am. I woke up before the alarm went off. My phone reported it was almost 8 am. I got out of bed and got ready for work. At 9 am I left my room.

As I walked through the halls of the hotel I looked at my wristwatch. It reported the time as 7:30. My watch is notorious for stopping when it is not on my wrist (it is a Kinetic watch). I was surprised it would loose time considering how late I was up the night before, but I kept walking.

As I walked through the hotel lobby I noticed the restaurant was empty. This surprised me a little because the previous morning the restaurant was full of people when I left.

I got into my car and started the engine. The morning was a little chilly, so I turned my attention to the temperature controls. That is when I caught a glimpse of the clock on the car. It was only 7:30 in the morning. Somehow my phone decided to change its time by 90 minutes.

I decided to call Kelley since she was just getting off of work back in New York. She convinced me to try to fall sleep in the car. After we hung up I tried to sleep in the car, but I couldn't. I returned to the hotel and planted myself in the restaurant to try to get some work done.

I thought I was the only one to have experienced Cheese Induced Insomnia. The first time it happened, I thought it was a fluke, I laid awake for hours on end. Then decided to watch some TV to while away the time. No luck.. I could only see pictures, but could not process the story.
Truth is, I couldn't figure out why it happened, but I did steer clear of cheese.. for years.. until last night, I had Mash at a restaurant, and it had creamy cheese in it, so I ate it, cos it tasted so good. I paid the penalty....... I was awake for hours.. last I checked.. I was still awake at half 2 in the morning... Back up at 5 am... and then my eyes are still wide open this morning, Like I am stoned or something...... This is strange.... really don't know what to do...
