Something is out there........

I don't know if anyone else gets these feelings. But sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with a paranoid feeling that something else is 'here'.

Be it aliens peering through the open window wanting to stick some wired instrument up your nostrils or arse, or a burgler creeping round the house.

(In one of the flats I used to live in their was a reason for these feelings but nothing like that exists here!)

Anyway, I've now been awake for over 90 minutes and still can't get back to sleep... and this is after I've checked the house, closed the bedroom window and locked the bedroom door!!!

I also had yet another VVD (Very Vivid Dream) this evening. That's my fourth this week!

ARG! Anyway, going to see if I can get some rest (or just read) for the next 90 mins before my alarm let's me know it's time to get up for work..... joy.

Now I can understand you getting those feelings while Sasha was still living with you - I hear he had a penchant for creeping into your room naked... :p

I wasn't me that did that and it wasn't me watching naughty videos at the time.

Sounds like a version of night terrors, that Irene used to get a lot.
She had the paralysis thing too,
but it was always accompanied by a feeling that there was a presence in the room too.
Maybe you are getting the same thing,
but you are getting released from the paralysis
(which we all get while asleep to stop us acting out our dreams as I'm sure you know)

While I'm mailing,
can you order me a copy of 'The Smoke' for Victoriana
(I assume you are cheaper and quicker than Amazon! :-)

I already have The Smoke on order. It should be with us early next week :p

Alcohol: the cause of -- and solution to -- all of our problems.

You mean...

Alcohol, now what's the question?

I occasionally get that feeling, my solution tends to be picking up whatever weapon is closest to my bed at the time (there's a variety) and going for a quick wander around the house, check all the doors and windows, then go back to sleep.

Quick tip Angus, go to sleep with a stick next to your bed, you'll probably never use it, but you'll sleep a damn sight easier just for it being there :) If you haven't got a good stick, let me know, I've got a few escrimas going spare, send you one down I will :)

I've had various things next to my bed (or under my pillow) over the years. Everything from hunting knives to charmed amulets :p

These days the only thing next to my bed is a pile of books and a bottle of water. Maybe my watch and glasses too.

Thanks for the offer for the escrimas. Didn't know what they were so had to google them (thus my follow up pst :p). A bit of a departure from your VERY BIG SWORDS collection!!! Take care!

:) Bladey death is not my only specialist skill :)

At some point (and just to get warren drooling), I'll get a shot of my Zweihander and post it up.

Still, if you want an escrima, got a few lying around, or jo staves for that matter, plenty of spare hurtiness, got a few Dussack as well, but if I'm sending you one of those, I'd have to insist on giving you lessons with it :)

Sleep well :)

You won't believe this...
Friday. 3am.
I am awake. Trawling the internet. Listening to music with my head phones on.
When suddenly...

... I get this weird paranoid feeling that someone else is awake and in the house.
I get up- no one moving around upstairs- and I become CONVINCED there is someone in the kitchen.
Nope.
Someone in the backyard!
Has to be!

I even (wait for it) grab a knife- SO convinced I am that there is someone ELSE about.

Of course there was no one.

Kept me awake for hours.

About the same time as you.

That's it- aliens! Has to be!
Either that or we are gonna have one MOTHER of a full moon tomorrow.
