Happy-joy, another night terror. THey’re pretty passe to me these days, and I can usually go right back to sleep. Usually after muttering ‘Oh, goddamn it...’

Anyway, this one stood out because a) I remembered it, and b) it was a pretty traditional ‘abduction’ night terror, which I used to have as a kid but never have now.


I was in my car, driving at night. The roads were long and curving, the scenery was farm fields and light wooded areas. As I was driving, I think I heard a radio playing some kind of news station, but it was indistinct.


I caught a glimpse of two figures on the side of the road, who looked to be talking. In the dream I dismissed it- two guys talking isn’t weird. But I distinctly recall that they seemed to be lit by their own light (i.e. they were glowing).


As I continued to drive, I continued to see glowing humanoids, usually at the side of the road, always singular. They drew my attention so much I was swerving, and I had to fight to keep on the road.

Finally, one of them was RIGHT IN THE ROAD, and I hit him. I distinctly recall the sound of the impact (a dull thud and the sound of the body going over the car), and I woke up. I could have gone back to sleep, but I think the headache I also had developed helped wake me. Besides, it was close to the usual time I get up.

The figures, by the way, looked like a cross between tall humans and the traditional ‘grey’ aliens famed in abduction scenerios. If you think you’ve been abducted, it is usually ‘just’ a night terror of this type. The appearance of the Greys is a construct of the brain based on how the brain sorts sensory input, hence slender body, prominent head, eyes and hands.

Really kinda getting sick of these.

I DID get rid of the headache, finally. All it took was more Ibuprofin, food and about 8 cups of strong tea. The incredible steak sandwich I had certainly didn't hurt! In the sports bar they have here, called 'Red', they have a small menu but what's on it... OhmyfuckingGod is it good. The steak sandwich was easily worth the $16. Oh- While the service was slow to get to me (there was a mixed mob of Furries and businesspeople almost to standing-room-only), once they DID get the order it got to me fast. The kitchen area is just off to the side, and if you wanted to you could watch the prep. The bar is well-stocked, and I'm highly tempted to try a few less common things... At least less common to me, like various mixed drinks.

While I feel fine now, I didn't sleep worth a damn. I did get SOME sleep, just... Fitful. Not too-much-caffeine fitful, but brain-won't-shut-up fitful. I think I'll be writing today at some point. :)

Right now I'm waiting on [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain, whom I'm splitting the room with ([livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn is here too), and we'll probably get breakfast.

Okay, I'm here. Rome 316. I've had a headache all day, and I napped for a while hoping it would go away... No such luck. It was caused by lack of sleep + no caffeine + neckstrain, and I didn't take anything for it when I first felt it, so it dug in like a tick.

I'll be okay, but I'm not up for much. I'm going to go down and see if I can't get my registration packet, then maybe yap on a MUCK for a while, maybe get a snack or something.

Thursday!

Thursday is the usual "Furry Night Dinner" gathering. I was planning on attending, and left [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain and [livejournal.com profile] foeclan an email with a suggestion in the morning, then crashed. I finally woke up around 3 or so (at the time I thought it was significantly later) with a killer headache. I got up, and sent out an email suggesting Big 10 or Smashburger (a new burger place nearby), but warned that I might not be going due to the headache.

In the end it cleared enough that I went, and [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain treated me to a belated birthday dinner at Big 10. I need to eat there more often I think. :) Thanks for the meal!

After, we ran over to Best Buy, where I spent the money I'd held onto (birthday cash from the folks) on a pair of CD's- They Might Be Giants- Flood (to replace the one that vanooshed with a bunch of others a few years ago) and The Pogues- Love & Peace.

After that, I went home, and ended up playing City of Heroes (Villainside) til about 20 minutes ago. Wolf John is now level 42. Rrargh. ;)

If I don't have another headache, the mowing will happen tonight. If I do, I'll get it tomorrow, or later tonight after I get it under control.

This weekend is the Sunday Group, and the next installment of the 7th Sea game! All hell's about to break loose with vanishing loot and flying poop- literally!

Okay, the family gathering was pretty nice. Steak dinner and relative peace, no pun intended. This time it was Maggie that was being a bit out of order rather than Sam... She seems to think that she can dictate everyone else's behavior while still being a brat herself. (Sigh) O well. In any event, my gifts were well received I think, though I rarely if ever get a significant reaction out of the family. The only real downer was I had a screamer of a headache right after I got up which lasted most of the time I was there.

Anyway, the loot!

I got a bunch of DVDs- Star Trek: The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan, the action flick 'The Rock', A classic, 'Brigadoon', and one other that is escaping me at the moment. Also in the haul was a die-cast model of the '60's Batmobile from the series, a... Thing... Called a 'Rabbit' which had three ears and three eyes(!) A shot glass with an embossed duck on it, and a wad of cash that'll help me replace the defunct (possibly repairable) La-Z-Boy.

Oh- I also got some scrapbook/photo album things... Pictures and notes on the family and on me- so people can either look and stare in shock, or laugh their heads off. ;) Kinda neat, but not necessarily something I'll be looking at frequently!

All in all a fair bit more than I expected.

Not a real exciting day. I was planning to do Xmas shopping, but that didn't happen for various reasons, one of which being I only got ideas from one person. O well. I'll likely get a start Saturday. What I DID do, was go to the PPL store with [livejournal.com profile] foeclan and [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn, where I got a cheap set of knives for the kitchen, a stapler (no, not a red swingline), and a new laptop case- its a pretty nice case too!

After that, I went to the Thursday Night Dinner thingie, which was the people above, me, [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain and [livejournal.com profile] zxizaraxii. We went again to Sarnas, and it was a nice meal. Not much more to say than that.

When I got home, I had a headache, which I tried to ignore... That only worked for a while, and I ended up doing the 'tea+aspirin+curl up in my chair' thing, passing out til about a half hour ago.

And that was my day. Whee!

Saturday.

Well, I PLANNED to get started on the cookies last night... But during the Silver Mantis Strike Force I started not feeling too hot- mostly a relentless headache. I know what it was from- being low on sleep for two days! So I ended up crashing at about midnight or so... I woke at 7:30 AM today. O well, at least I'm feeling better!

Today is the Vanguard campaign, and tonight is day one of the last three before the con. I might not get as many cookies done as I wanted, as they have to be done and with [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain before I leave Wednesday morning, But I'll at least have some. :)

Oh I got a little more good news- due to how the new mortgage was calculated, I didn't have to pay November's payment either! So a lil extra cash in the bank.

Tomorrow is the next Buffy run, so its a busy weekend.

Whilst talking with [livejournal.com profile] cuprohastes, I had a disturbing thought...

The Muppets teach Vore.

(shudder)

What else are they doing behind the curtain?? O.o

Finally!

I have my new mattress and box-spring! Yay! It arrived earlieer this afternoon, and I just now finally put them onto the bedframe- Now we'll see if I can start sleeping decently again. :) Next step in the sleep-improvement agenda is foamboard over the windows for light-control.

Now if this stupid neck-and-headache would go the hell away...
