's desperate attempt (short of drinking until passed out or committing suicide) at getting some sleep.
Jon: Fuck, I'm tired. I'm doing a sleep reboot.

Jon: I stayed up all night last night because my sleep pattern is all fucked up; so I'm going to bed tonight using the fatigue I have right now. Plus, I might take some Advil PM before I go to bed, too. This fucking sucks. FUCK INSOMNIA
