Dreams and technology do not mix. - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Dreams and technology do not mix.
Those of you who have known me for a while are aware that I am prone to "bad" dreams or flat-out nightmares. Over the last two years it has become a regular occurance for me to startle awake at some ridiculously early hour in the morning, often by flailing or jerking upright. This usually leads to me slamming my skull into the bookshelf that is built into my headboard, which has already left one scar and will probably lead to more if I don't put in a more "traditional" headboard soon.

Sometimes these rude awakenings happen two or even three times over the course of a night. For the majority of these terrors, I have no idea what causes them or serves as fuel for them. Am I too stressed out? Am I worried about someone or something? Do I have too much caffeine in my diet? Is Ra sleeping on my face? I really don't know It could be any one of those things, a combination thereof, or something totally different.

The set of nightmares I woke up from today at 3:48 were particularly vivid and (for personal reasons) unsettling, but at least I have an explanation for them: there is little doubt that watching the high-definition, widescreen 2003 remake of the 1974 horror cult classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre did not help things even one iota.

Over the line

Gosh, if that 50-incher is too much of a burden for you, let me know and we'll take it off your hands :-)

(Incidentally, today's Woot! amused me. No financing deal from them, though.)

Is Ra sleeping on my face?

I think we can rule this one out...Unless you've awakened from one of these nightmares by sitting bolt upright, only to hear "MEEEEEeeeeee*SPLOSH*" as you launch Ra across the room, and into the bathroom ;)

Nocturnal violence trifecta complete.

*HUGS* I believe it has to be the amount of stress you are dealing with and too much work with not enough sleep. Possibably the horror movie didn't help much either. But, I'm sure you know that your friends are here for you whenever you need them to cheer you up, make things worse or better and comfort you when needed. :)
