A lone Saturday, with Nick at work doing whatever he does, Scott plogging away somewhere by himself, and Josh gazing at the California sun alongside SAV. For the record, it is a beautiful day here in New York.
Hey, so new developments: Ann says that I have been sleepwalking. Last night was not the first time she said it, so it is not a rare occurance. I told her to try and wake me up at any cost, and last night she said she tried very hard to wake me, but that it was impossible since I said I was awake. I have zero recollection of any of the experiences. Ann said she could tell I was not really awake, because I was talking to her as though I did not know her, and I had no memory of the day, she said I was just very frustrated at everything. She says that last night I went to the shower and turned it on and off repeatedly, and when asked why I claimed it was the "Water Cleansing System." I sort of wish Ann would talk to me more when I am in this state, but it seems that she is more scared of it, then interested.
\Som*nam"bu*lism\, n. [Cf. F. somnambulisme. See Somnambulation.] A condition of the nervous system in which an individual during sleep performs actions approppriate to the waking state; a state of sleep in which some of the senses and voluntary powers are partially awake; noctambulism.
I have done some reading and it seems that this sleepwaking (somnambulism) is probably just related to simple alcohol abuse. It seems that alcohol can charge some electric activity in the temporal lobe of one's brain, casuing innapropriate activity to occur when a person is approaching deep sleep, (the deepest stage before non-REM sleep) and make the person be in a state of both 'awake' and 'asleep.' Alcohol allows the dysfunctional transition into deep sleep to occur more readily, leading to somnambulism.
They say that people who this happens to, should stop their drinking abuse, or meditate before sleep to cool down the effect of the alcohol on the brain. Somnambulism cannot occur during REM sleep because during REM sleep the body is actually paralyzed and cannot move. I did not know this, it seems that our bodies have evolved in such a way that we know to shut our motor-nerves entirely down before entering REM-dream sleep for fear that if we could move during REM sleep we might try to act out our dreams. This seems like another case of bad evolution. anyway...
I don't know what all this sleepwalking really means, perhaps that I need something else instead of drinks to relieve my stress with. One thing is for sure, I have been creeping ann out at night, by appearing possesed and being 'not' me while being me. I wonder if it happens when she is not here? I would have no idea? I wonder how hard she is trying to wake me. Perhaps I just need a good kick in the ass? I think I want ann to video tape it the next time it might occur.
anyway not trying to raise eyebrows or get in the way, just keeping the blog.
