Speaking of dreams. . . .

The other day I was taking a nap, and asked DH to make sure I don't sleep too late. Which he did. I got up started doing my usual things. Then DH started supper, I was sitting at my desk reading some music I'm working on. The entire time DH kept bugging me about getting up. I kept giving him an annoyed look and continued on with my reading. I was just about to jump his butt for running a very bad joke into the ground when, my boys jumped on me, instantly transporting me back to the couch where I was apparently still napping.

These types of dreams happen to me all the time. Current real events getting incorporated into my dreams. It's given me some pretty funny ones over the years.

One time, I dreamed I was having a fight with this guy I was seeing, and he coincidentally called while I was dreaming. I ended up yelling at him for a minute before I realized it was a dream.

Another time, I left the tv on. My cousin Vinnie was on. The scene where they are at the police station thinking they were being arrested for stealing tuna fish was on. Then my sister's alarm clock went off, the song "I wish" by pearl jam was on her radio. Somehow those things got combined into a hilarious song "I wish I was a tuna fish" that could have rivialed anything weird al has done. I got through a good chunck of the song before I literally started rolling on the floor laughing, waking me up with tears in my eyes. I really regret not writting down the lyrics as soon as I woke up. I remember the jest of it, but for the most part, it's gone.

Anyone else get crazy funny dreams like these and want to share?

I've definitely dreamed I'd already woken up and started to get ready before. A few times, at least.

When I was living at home, I always used the beeping part of the alarm clock to wake up. I never used the radio. One morning I had a really weird dream about being in church and the preacher yelling and everyone dancing and singing-- as an atheist, it completely wigged me out. I had no idea WTF was going on. I woke up and realized our housekeeper had left my clock radio on "radio" instead of "beep" and on her god station.

I also once dreamed that the fire alarm started going off whereever it was that I was (school, maybe? These are all stories from high school, I don't usually remember my dreams anymore), and it was actually the beeping from my alarm.

I never wake up to an alarm (sleep issues), but OFTEN wake up to the alarm and realize it was a dream. I even hear the alarm when I am just falling asleep at night and bolt straight up.

I've had dreams like that before. They are not often, but they have happened. It's like a dream inside a dream.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I'm notorious for integrating real life things into my dreams to excuse my not getting up. I make up all sorts of elaborate dream details to explain why the alarm has been ringing for an hour...fire, ambulance, nuclear disaster, broken electricity. I lie to myself I think.
Once my a beeping woke me up, but I didn't know what the noise was. I laid in bed thinking about it and finally decided it muct be one of those big vans that beeps when it's backing up. Satisfied with my answer, I went back to sleep. I woke up once more to "the van backing up." The third time, I got annoyed, thinking what the hell are they doing out there that they're STILL backing up. Yeah, it was my alarm.

we program our t.v. to come on in the morning as our alarm. so sometimes, i'll hear the news and will dream something incorporating the news event, the newscaster, and some unrelated thing from the day before.

i stayed home when i was pregnant with our first baby. across the street was construction on a new neighborhood. during my many naps, i'd repeatedly dream that one of the workers was coming up the stairs, tracking in dirt and dust, and that he'd see my bare belly as i was splayed across our bed. the sounds from the construction trucks were also unusually loud and i'd hear those sounds in my dreams. crazy!

Yeah, all the above crazy sorts of things. I often think I hear phones ringing, as someone said, hear someone calling me, etc.

On a tangent, do ya'll ever think you hear the phone ringing when you're drying your hair? That happens to me all the time!

i think it's my mind because on the occasions that i have been mindful to bring a phone into the bathroom, i don't hear anything.

... maybe someone is gaslighting me.

LOL! These stories were cracking me up. I don't really do this that often, but it happens on occasion. I have answered the phone a couple times in my sleep and had completely random conversations with people. I never even remember they've happened until I talk to the person later and they tell me what a nut I am.

Years ago I used to work in a lab. I had to learn to cut frozen sections on a cryotome -- a complicated machine with a lot of adjustments and digital readouts. One night I thought I was working in the lab and the cryotome was all out of whack -- the temp was too high, the sections would be ruined! Then I realized I had mistaken my clock for the readout on the cryotome.
I rarely remember my dreams. Twice in the last two weeks I've woken up and been in that state where you are pretty much still asleep, but would respond if someone called your name and each time, the name of one of the programs that I COULD be going to next year has just popped into my head. Last week it was my 2nd choice. This week is my third choice. I find out next week!

I only had those type dreams as a kid. When my mother would wake me up for school, I always thought I was up already and why was she being such a pain about it.
