I had a scary dream last night. I don’t remember what it was about, but it was probably brought on by the half of the Criminal Intent episode I watched before bed (this weird desperate guy performed makeshift lobotomies on women so they couldn’t leave him – by drilling a hole in their head and pouring in hotwater. Ugh). I woke up at one, really disorientated and convinced someone was standing next to my bed. I have never jumped out of bed and ran across the room to hit the lights that quickly! By that time, I had woken up, but I couldn’t get rid of the creepy feeling so I locked my door to be on the safe side. I did, however, sleep like a log until my alarm went off. I guess the burst of adrenaline didn’t hurt me…but tonight, I’m staying away from crime shows.
Edit: I watched a couple of episodes of House tonight on joox.net. I’m kind of surprised I haven’t contracted anything rare and life-threatening yet, since all of House’s patients get extreme diseases from everyday activities. I guess I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed 🙂
