It's getting more than a little disturbing how I keep appearing in zooer's dreams, considering that we've never even met.

Yes, I think it is odd also, I don't usually remember dreams. It must be after I read a post of yours I find
interesting. In both dreams we worked together, you might have been my department manager and were at some
of technical event.

It is fascinating how dreams mix elements of the distant past with elements of the present.

In this week's episode (heh), my parents decided to limit my computer time because I needed to focus more on my school work. And yes, this really did happen ... nearly thirty years ago.

So I thought to myself, "no problem, I've got a car, and a laptop tethered to my smartphone, I'll just hang out at the school and do my computer stuff there."

(I suppose XKCD 519 can be included herein by reference ... retroactively and anachronistically.)

At least a certain pointy-haired ex-boss didn't make an appearance!

The funny thing about *that* thought is that in high school I had my computer time limited by my parents, and then for the first eight years after college I worked for the family business -- doing computer work. Throw another irony log on the fire.

Parents are right about limiting computer time. You don't limit computer time for your kids? They sit most of the day at school, I want them to MOVE a little when they get home.

You're missing the point. They limited my computer time (sitting down but learning a useful skill) so that I would spend more time doing homework (sitting down and performing completely useless drudgery).

Cannot get my mind to stay in the present.
I keep forcing myself back into reality, but it my mind won't stay here.

I keep looking around and being surprised at where I am (physically)
I expect to be in Newburgh, high school, the college dorms, but nothing in the past 15 years or so.

I wonder if it's a hormonal thing.

(btw, in case anyone's wondering, I'm 25 weeks pregnant)

I don't know. I find myself a bit surprised at how stiff I feel, like, that sort of thing is for older people, not for me. I don't think it's the same thing, I don't go to the past in my mind, but the past barely exists in my mind so I guess I wouldn't. My memories are all faded and hard to recall. Do you remember the past vividly?

quite vivid. 
I can remember hanging out on your bed in Banot like it was 10 minutes ago.

This is called "wishful thinking".

Yaakov had a nightmare that I took his candy away, apparently. I woke up with him next to me, hitting me and crying and demanding I give it back. In the morning he didn't remember any of it.

It's pretty much a constant. School days are long gone, often decades ago, but those dreams just keep coming.

For me they pretty much take one of three forms:

1. Same dorm, same roommates, but it's either the beginning or end of the year and something's not quite right

2. We're more than a few weeks into the fall semester and I forgot to sign up for marching band

3. Why the f**k did I sign up for graduate school? (and haven't attended a single class)

Everyone has those I forgot to attend a class dreams, it is common.

I have the occasional "still in the Army" dream. Still. Over 20 years later.

Every once in a very long while I have a dream about being in a college class and having an exam coming up but not having attended in about 3 - 4 weeks. Sounds like I'm checking out.

the thing is - it's not dreams. It's waking moments where I'm suddenly in the wrong time and place.

Memories hit me so hard that I have trouble functioning where I am.

It's just a glitch in the Matrix. Ignore it and move on. :)

I learned a new term today in relation to my CPAP, "rain out".  It has happened before but was bad the past few nights.  I keep my room cool, the CPAP has a heated tube.  However the mask is not heated.  When the warm moist air hits the colder mask you have condensation, and a lot of it.  The tubing will gurgle, water will go everywhere and you don't sleep well.
