Strange, much?

I have weird dreams. I've blogged them before. But I have recently made a discovery.

I'm not sure how I missed blogging this, since it was funny as, but a few months ago, just after I started my new job, I had a dream that I was looking for something in bag, on the train. I kept pulling out these items, examining them, deciding they weren't what I wanted, and throwing them away.

Well, I pulled out this item that felt like my boot. I remember how it felt, but not how it looked. I threw it away, thinking 'that's not right'. And I must have gone back to sleep.

In the morning when I woke up, there were shoes all over my floor! I have a habit of keeping oft worn footwear under my bed, and during my dream, I must have been rummaging around under my bed, dragging them out and throwing them around the room. It must have looked funny as.

Anyway, the other night, I had this very strange experience. After going to bed I realised I had something that I needed to talk to my roomie out. Urgently. I vaguely remember standing in her doorway, trying to ask her a question. She looked at me, seeming very confused. I trailed off. I tried to reword the question so she'd understand. I couldn't get the words out. I told her I was confused, and that I was going back to bed.

I spoke to her yesterday, and asked what happened. Turns out I sleep walk.

I have to wear pyjamas for the rest of my life!

The classic case is to dream about eating a large marshmallow then waking to find the pillow missing!

Sleep walking could be fun, maybe you should ask Ben about it. He has quite a bit of experience from what I understand.

Oh and wearing pyjamas isn't a bad idea, but from what I understand, you may not always keep them on!

That's funny! The last time I walked around in my sleep was when I was 10 and I was reading too many vampire stories. My parents found me scratching around on the carpet. What are you doing? they asked me and I apparently replied, "digging for the bones"
True story! What a little freak.

Yes, keep your clothes on phishy..who knows what you get up to in that flat?!

Phish that is scary! My brother used to sleep walk when he was a teen and we had to lock him in his room at night for a while there.

Hope all is good with you besides your nocturnal wanderings :)

Miss D - nope, just a chickie and her boy.

XL - I don't think I could fit all of it in. I have rather large pillows.

Crushed - its weird when you wake up.

Cazzie - so I've heard.

Fingers - haha. Nothing decent worth eating in there. I don't eat tasty food nowdays.

Mutant - I know. And I'm paranoid about taking them off and going for a wander.

Kate - 'digging for bones'! I love it!

Steph - all is fantastic!
