I'd cut off a toe to get to some sleep

Having one of those nights were I just can't get to sleep...

Been back to bed about four times, and spent at least an hour each time hoping I won't wake up for a while, but it's just not working.

I've tried my usual tricks-

Thinking goodnight to each body part, starting with my toes till I feel a tingle of acknowledgement and move onto the next part.
........ No Luck

Reverse psychology, 'I don't need sleep, sleep is for pussies!'
........ Nope, it never works

Now I remember when I was younger, seeing a guy on TV who was treating people who had issues falling asleep. His 'trick' was to ask/tell your brain something like 'There's is nothing I can do tonight, that can't wait till tomorrow'. I remember it working a few times for me but do you think I can remember what that statement was?
Google, usually one of tried and true advisors, is being no help at all. How I wish I could find that statement and finally get some sleep.

Torture = A surprise you know is coming

Birthday is coming up in less than a month and my bestie has something planned for the weekend before. It's a surprise she says, but everyone knows but me. It's driving me crazy, your not supposed to know about surprises! But if you know something is happening and aren't aloud to know about it, it's torture!!

She's offered to tell me but I don't want to know, but I do want to know... Grrrr

She's told me I need to be up and ready to go at 6am on a Saturday morning, the only things I could guess was hot air ballooning and Tough Mudder, a really tough obstacle course thing which I am so not ready for. Neither of them she says.
