Blub hasn't slept in days, and always wakes up at midnight, always. 
He is always wide awake when he wakes up at midnight like someone jumpstarts his whole organism. 
He found out the fastest way to fall asleep again.
A task so daunting no one could possibly stay awake for long, feather dusting with a feather duster. 
When that doesn't help he listens to an enthusiastic astrologer on youtube, if he knew he puts people to sleep so fast he'd probably stop.
Right before he wakes up he always dreams of an important deal falling through, and all seems to be connected to a bottle of syrup. 
In his dream, he sits across someone from the society of strange people.
