Sandman seems to have been very liberal with his sand.   

Whats with me today? I’m still so sleepy. Actually I think I know what. Its the rain. Was woken up at 5am with the rain beating down outside my window. This is the kind of day you just want to sleep in and not report to work. So I was hoping that I would suddenly get a call that shooting is cancelled for some reason. But that didn’t happen so after my 3rd cup of tea I struggled out of bed and groaned my way to work. It feels like such a sleepy day today. So I’m kind of shutting my eyes between shots.

I’m going to keep adding to this post as the day goes on.

Its 2.15pm now… time for a snooze!

Aamir Sir Ji
Raining... every one would like to stay home for sure. But I'm thinking of my child hood. When it rains, I used to make paper boats and run along the flowing water in my village along with my friends, but nice memories. We also use to make sand castles and play.

Thanks bringing nice memories back to my mind. Now I live Melbourne, Aus. Too cold, try to wake up in the early morning to catch you on the net to chat with you but weather is too cold here and I feel to stay in the bed whole day but can't, I have to run to college and keep up part time job
So lol

@Tesoro: Okay my try.

A dark cloud is coming
Headed straight for your home
Might get just a little bit crazy, Aamir
Might try to tear your sleep apart

When the storm blows over
Only the true sandman remains
If we’re ever gonna see a rainbow
We have to stand a little rain

PS: @ TheBWFan - I was sooo humming Mujhe Neend Na Aaye all day today because of this blog - it was the first thing I thought about when I saw Aamir's post LOL Delicious song, one of my favourites!

Then I came and saw your post and laughed my pants off about the AAA set-up for it. Now I'll forever picture Salman & Aamir singing it, each with one of those drums that Prem has during Ye Raat Aur Ye Doori - hope you're proud of yourself for that! :)

Haha! I hope you're ready for this!

Picture Aamir singing this to very bad punchy funk beats:

The clock is suddenly melting with a grin
Queen Mab had visited again
I dreamt a million SMEGS in my scene
Must have wished for it before I signed in!

Oh Hirani jiiiii,
will you rescue meeeee,
Sandman please please bring me a tea, a tea!

- repeat twice and then wake up :P

LOL And now it's time for Tesoro to stop being ridiculous and go to sleep too...

Nighty Night!

@ Ickeyfifi, andalib, chekhov, susimaus, katayoun, SMEGS and of course Aline & Mira who seem to already be doing a great duet: let's sing, but may I suggest something other than lullabies - the Blog Boss seems to be doing just fine falling asleep without one :P

Something more upbeat perhaps:

Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Too morbid! Ok, let's try...

And you run, you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older...

Darn this one gets morbid too. Why are all these people against sleeping? Such oddballs!... Again we have to make our own song. Oh dear, pink elephants will be flying again :P

I'll be back with a good one :)

I just read all the posts back .... interesting how the sandman is in every culture .. and Daniela - i should have read your post before posting mine ... Maybe Mr Sandman should come to me now ... I am waiting ...

hmm nope not made out of sand but based on the fairy tales of E .T. A Hoffman and Hans Christian Andersen , Sandman is a little cute man who sits on the moon and looks down and makes sure with his dreamsand that every child goes to bed and gets tired and dreams sweet dreams...Eastern germany had its own version. Tradition on german ´west tv telling a soft bedtime story starting" Now dear children listen well "and then says good bye and flies back to the moon ..."Goodbye and sleep well !"
Wow , i grew up with it !! , Nighty -Night Aamirji.....

Sandmännchen without whom no child in germany should go to sleep ;) and isn´t there that lovely song:" Mister Sandman bring me a dream , make him the cutest that I´ve ever seen, give him two lips like roses and clover , tell him his lonesome nights are over "... ooooh THANKS Aamir , now I do have that song going around in me head - feel like a bollywood rani singing around in the flat!!!

@ Aline & other Aamirians that don't believe in coffee (you too, Aamir): a cute Turkish proverb I read today in a cafe:

Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love. :P (Of course, the Turks do take their coffee sweeter than sugarcane! very strange people - LOL just kidding!)

@ Sheby: welcome to the blog, fellow countryman! :) Well, half a countryman anyway, I now live in Canada, but still. What city are you from?

You'll love it here in the madhouse, just make sure you take a madness pill every day, or you just might go coo-koo :) Oh and we tend to sing a lot, bring ear plugs :P

Tesoro - cheers from the capital
