The Nap From Another Dimension

ok that was really weird…

i went to sleep at 3:30 to take a nap.. my mom knew i was going to sleep. i woke up once around 4 and once around 5 when people called, but went straight back to sleep after each call. i woke up at 6:30 and it’s all dark. nobody’s come in and closed the blinds (my family is really really into this) or turned on a bedside light… nobodys come into my room at all for 3 hours, and i’ve been asleep 3 hours. what???

ok, maybe it doesnt sound so weird, but it is! in my house, anyway. i’m usually lucky if i get an hour nap in without being interrupted by a billion people.

i wake up freezing cold. so i got up, turned on my light, closed the blinds, and wandered out into the rest of the house. my mom’s gone, my sister’s not home. confused. the whole house is freezing, and my stepdad’s in the living room talking on the phone and watching tv. no dinner is cooking.

so i return to my room, put on my bathrobe to try and fend off the cold, and sit down to type this.

before i went to sleep i watched the ‘gravedigger’ music video.. so i went to sleep and woke up with it playing in my head. i’ve also had ‘the zephyr song’ by red hot chilli peppers stuck in my head all day, and it was in my dreams, along with gravedigger. i actually ended up rewriting the words to the zephyr song in my dream and singing them constantly. my dreams were very weird but seemed to be repetative and follow some theme. i know i dreamed about doing calculus, making a really good meal with somebody, getting driven to school, singing with a band of strangers, and getting up from my nap and driving my mom and sister to dinner. (food featured prominently, and i felt hungry very often in my dream and when i woke up.. but i’m not hungry now). i also had clips where i was at a house that doesnt exist, but in the dream was placed diagonal across the creek behind my house from me (on what is really butler’s land). it was on a huge hill, and because it’d been really cold lately kids were sliding down the vertical slope of the icy grass. i was with my dad and english family, and we went to the bottom of the hill and watched the kids, then proceeded to an icy lake where i almost fell in numerous times while trying to take a picture with my cameraphone.

so yea.. that was my nap. definitely the strangest nap i’ve ever taken. i’m kind of scared to go out and see if my mom’s.. er.. there yet… i feel very out of the loop and lost as to what’s happening with my family. whoo…. i need to cut down on the drugs… ; P
