Dream on.

This morning I awoke without needing my alarm to do it for me. While I can't tell you what I was dreaming before I got up, I can tell you why I did ... see, it felt like there was someone else in my room. And, if not someone else entirely, definitely some kind of a presence, somewhere near me, possibly even watching me. Now, I'm not one to have nightmares all that much ... I'm more prone to wake myself up by laughing or talking to someone the Sandman has conjured up deep inside my subconscious ... but scary dreams are far, far from me. I just don't have them. Still, to wake up and feel like I wasn't alone was definitely unsettling. It means I will have to eke by with five hours 'o sleep today instead of 6 or 7. I sound absolutely cuckoo, yeah?

No more boxes 'o chocolate milk before bedtime, from here on out.

So... if you were awake, why in the heavens weren't you participating in the Eff Cee? Dirty rascal...

Woulda been much better to be on a field than in the dentist's chair getting stabbed and told my gums are slowly rotting away, that's for certain.

I vote not cuckoo. I've had it happen to me too. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who gets haunted from time to time.

I just had a dream that there was a spider beside me. I was terrified...even though in real life, I'm not afraid of spiders at all. (A little disgusted sometimes, but usually that's just dependant on the type of spider and it's positioning to me.)

Max woke up absolutely terrified in the night because he dreamed bad people were breaking into our house. He crawled into bed and cuddled with me. It helped him, so you know...

I once woke up singing: Shot through the heart and you're too blame, you give love a bad name.

I remember thinking 'What on earth' Pah ha.

Is that a dream or a nightmare, I can't tell.

Anyway, dude, I used to totally have creepy dreams like that, it was usually just before I fell asleep, or I would wake up in the night and I could just FEEL someone or something, and it was terrifying. I don't think I was imagining or dreaming it either. Creepy.

(I'm in Salt Lake by the way... oh yeah, just for a couple of more weeks... oh yeah, I'm Laura's friend from Scotland)

curious ghost? Don't worry too much about it unless things start moving unexpectedly. Otherwise, cool.

That was me. In your room. Sorry.
