Last night I was arrested for drunk driving. This was one of the worst dreams I have ever had. In the dream, I could see my goal of becoming a police officer disappearing...

But after the second surgery was finally successful and I was able to sleep through the night, I continued to get up, walk around, and I'd wake up walking in the street at 2am! I finally stopped this by stacking coins on my doorknob. Coins'd clatter, I'd wake up, have a good laugh and go back to bed.
Didn't the local police issue an alert to watch out for you a while back?

I love when I'm falling asleep in my chair and as soon as I climb under the covers, my eyes instantly pop open and I feel like I've just downed a pot of coffee.

And on that note, as I'm typing this trying to keep my eyes open, I'm off to stare at the ceiling for approx. 2 hours.

Mom decides to walk in and share to much sometimes.
tonight was one of those times. "I got this scar from ironing naked." "I cook naked." I would have rather heard about her years of kung-fu training than the fact she is way to comfortable when i am not around

For a long time now, I've had to go until I just drop; stepmother passing didn't help that, either (end of Jan). It's less impactful now, since I'm on vacation this week (during SUCK weather!), but I still don't like being up half the night, then falling out for a nap in mid/late afternoon. Almost always wake up grumpy, and the kids don't deserve that.

Less of an issue in warmer weather, as I wear myself out more on the bike.

I don't think so. The nice driver saw my Homer Simpson pajamas and stopped in time, tooted his horn, which woke me up. That was the last time, because I decided I had to do something about it.

BUT we do have an old-folks home kitty-corner from where I live "with special neighborhood for the memory impaired." Every once in a while one of them makes it over the wall and gives the Carlsbad Police Department something to do. They've had HELICOPTERS looking for these guys twice, with the loudspeakers giving the escapees description, clothing, etc.




Last night's dream was about a weird snake in an inflatable kiddy-pool in the yard. All five of the dogs were gathering around barking at it, and I was trying to keep them away from it. The snake was going after them and the house was locked so I couldn't put the dogs inside. They wanted to get at the snake just as badly as the snake wanted to get at them. I couldn't find any stick or weapon or anything, but I had a collapsible television antenna in my pocket, so I used that to dispatch the weird snake. And since the stupid antenna was so flimsy, it took a long time to kill the snake; it kept collapsing, so stabbing wouldn't work, and it was too light to do any damage if I swung it like a stick. I felt bad about killing that snake, but it felt like I didn't have any choice.
