Definition of insomnia....me!
Inability to sleep, either difficulty getting to sleep, waking lots during the night or waking up too early in the morning.
Insomnia comes in three different forms: Transient insomnia - lasting for a few nights
Short-term insomnia - two to four weeks of poor sleep
Chronic Insomnia - poor sleep that happens most nights and lasts for a month or longer.
(hence me being here at 05:08 writing definitions)

Insomnia Trivia: David Baddiel has terrible insomnia
David Baddiel scetch: If you tell someone that you have insomnia, why do they always go..'oh really cos im always asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow'?
Its not like if someone told you they were blind you'd go... 'oh really cos i can see perfectly...blimey is that the Pyrenees?'

*HAHAHAHAH*
phrase used widely by teenagers and young adults in the mid 90s as it was made popular by the comedy geniuses Stew Lee & Richard Herring.
they used it mostly in the second series of their hit tv & radio show 'Fist of Fun'.
It means basically to want everything, if you want the moon on a stick then you want everything, including things you can't have.
Rich: you wanted the moon on a stick...well look! i went up and got it for you!

Stew: but i don't want it!

contrary to popular belief the term 'fat knacker' is quite often used to insult someone who is not actually fat. But who is stuffing their amply sized gob full of something a fat person would eat.
Implies that they get knackered whilst eating hence the term fat knacker.
Also can be used to describe someone who is just insanely fat and gets tired shuffling to the fridge.

(note: i have absolutely nothing against fat people, the term fat knacker would only be used (in my case) to describe someone fat and a total ass wipe)
WTF! you're going back for another hamburger? you better hurry up and eat that then you fat knacker!

Fat Person: 'Ha! look at that bitch Lucy over there'
Me: Shut the fuck up you fat knacker!

My favourite song by Radiohead. It's been my favourite for so many years now =)
Probably their most 'depressing' (for want of a better word) song. I'm gonna stop talking about it and let Thom Yorke say a little about his own song.

With regards to Street Spirit:

"'Street Spirit' is our purest song, but I didn't write it.... It wrote itself. We were just its messengers... Its biological catalysts. Its core is a complete mystery to me... and (pause) you know, I wouldn't ever try to write something that hopeless... All of our saddest songs have somewhere in them at least a glimmer of resolve... 'Street Spirit' has no resolve... It is the dark tunnel without the light at the end. It represents all tragic emotion that is so hurtful that the sound of that melody is its only definition. We all have a way of dealing with that song... It's called detachment... Especially me.. I detach my emotional radar from that song, or I couldn't play it... I'd crack. I'd break down on stage.. that's why its lyrics are just a bunch of mini-stories or visual images as opposed to a cohesive explanation of its meaning... I used images set to the music that I thought would convey the emotional entirety of the lyric and music working together... That's what's meant by 'all these things are one to swallow whole'.. I meant the emotional entirety, because I didn't have it in me to articulate the emotion... (pause) I'd crack.... Our fans are braver than I to let that song penetrate them, or maybe they don't realize what they're listening to.. They don't realize that 'Street Spirit' is about staring the fucking devil right in the eyes... and knowing, no matter what the hell you do, he'll get the last laugh...and it's real...and true. The devil really will get the last laugh in all cases without exception, and if I let myself think about that to long, I'd crack. I can't believe we have fans that can deal emotionally with that song... That's why I'm convinced that they don't know what it's about. It's why we play it towards the end of our sets. It drains me, and it shakes me, and hurts like hell every time I play it, looking out at thousands of people cheering and smiling, oblivious to the tragedy of it's meaning, like when you're going to have your dog put down and it's wagging it's tail on the way there. That's what they all look like, and it breaks my heart.

I wish that song hadn't picked us as its catalysts, and so I don't claim it. It asks too much. (very long pause). I didn't write that song."

That song evokes a feeling in me i can't describe, it will always be my favourite radiohead song.
See below for full lyrics.
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things are one to swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things are one to swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
IMMERSE YOUR SOUL IN LOVE
something i cant get.
the physical state of unconciousness for the body to recover from its daily activities.
something clearly overlooked for INSOMNIACS like me.
all of you that can get the 's' word ...make the most of it cos you'll never understand the frustration of being totally wiped and not being able to fall asleep
