» Sacked

I got sacked by the Methodist Church for erasing the autoexec.bat file from my PC.

» Birthdays

Okay, so she didn't actually DIE on my birthday....
but my mother did choose my family birthday dinner to announce to us that she had been diagnosed with Cancer. Cue lovely family dinner wanting to come back out onto the table. Her excuse? "Everyone was together in one place" This messed up birthdays for me for several years and cost a pretty penny for the shrink. I now make up for this by making my birthday last at least a month. My birthday is the occasion for everyone to celebrate the joy that is in the world because I was born. Yeah!

» Sleepwalking

I'll sleep when I'm dead!
Apparently sleep disorders are hereditary. My grandmother was narcoleptic, and therefore refused to learn to drive. I have always known that, as a child, I would talk and sometimes walk around a litte in my sleep. Back then I actually slept - but I digress.

Now, thanks to the pharmaceutical wonder known as Ambien, I get to sleep most nights and wake up to find out what havoc I have wreaked during the 20 minutes it takes to kick in. It is normal to have amnesia from the period you took the drug until it gets in your system and you go to sleep.

Apparently I am a very good cook. Three course meals are not out of the ordinary. I once invited my neighbor to join me in trimming the hedges at 10:00 PM. Just as well he didn't join me. Got stung by an angry bee shortly thereafter. I also found out about some pretty random behaviours, such as tapping my bedmate on the shoulder and giggling, sucking my thumb (Which I SWORE I gave up thirty years ago!)

I have been able to pretty much make sure I don't drive like this. It's excruciatingly dangerous. If you don't believe me, ask my brother. He put over a hundred miles on his car one night. Yep, sound asleep.

Moral of the story: hide your car keys when you go to bed.

» Panic Buying

Does Re-Gifting Count?
I re-gifted several items this year. Gave the secretary the body lotion/soap/&tc kit I got from a co-worker. I happen to know for a fact that he hits the after season sale buys these things for a song.

Boss of the boss of the boss gave the members of the Holiday Retreat Planning Committee a cheap votive candle holder that she picked up on sale at a discount store.

Now picture this...I have thirteen cats...fire...jumping animals...Hello, Prudential?

That got re-gifted to a friend of the b/f who likes candles and has daschunds.
