Another Day In The Life

Hello, hooligans. It's Tuesday and we're still on "vacation". I'm starting to get a little nutty about stuff.

First, after we had put the lights on the tree (following testing them all), there was a strand that was only PARTIALLY working. So, that strand is getting the heave-ho. THEN, I woke up this morning to find that Bella the Cat had chewed thru another strand, so that one, too, has to be trashed. Hopefully I can find some lights on discount for next year.

However, that means I have to leave the comfy enclave of my warm house. Not looking forward to that.

I've noticed lately that I have bizarre auditory and other sensory hallucinations in the morning.

I am not a morning person, but I wake up fairly early - between 4 am and 5:30 am, because my bladder is rebelling and needs to GET THE PEE OUT. I swear, I was given a hamster bladder at birth.

So, I get up, go potty and then spend the rest of the morning rolling around in bed, in and out of brief sleep mode and trying to crack my back. It's all very exciting.

Back in the summer, in my half sleep/wake times, I would start to hear things. Like, the doorbell ringing or the phone. For the first 2 or 3 times, I actually got out of bed and found no one had phoned and there was no one at the door. Now, if I hear the doorbell, I wait for a 2nd ring, otherwise, I assume it's another of my auditory/dream induced hallucinations.

Lately, I've been experiencing tactile hallucinations. In my semi-sleep/wake mode, I have the feeling that something needs to be picked up or petted or whatever and when I open my eyes, they ain't nothing there. I find myself reaching for nothing!

It's very disconcerting. I think I ate too much acid in college. But, that's what makes me interesting! :-)

Have a good Tuesday, hooligans!



  1. I hate the word, "potty". Hate it!! Good luck with your bladder. Cheers ETW!!

  2. Last week in Mexico; Me to my sister: Why couldn't I have been born with an enormous bladder instead of great-big feet???"

    I have those same same sensory hallucinations and I never went to college OR did acid. WTH? D'you know how often I have to check my cell phone because I heard it ring, or for crissake, felt it vibrate?

    It is quite disconcerting, hey?

  3. i paid someone to put my lights up this year.

    best 40 bucks i ever spent!

  4. I have those hallucinations to, but mine are voices.... well... I hear them when I'm awake... Gotta run they are telling me I've got stuff I gotta do here.....

  5. That definitely makes you interesting.

  6. Always wanted to try acid.

    Good luck with your bladder and your hallucinations.

  7. Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
