    and then something stirs you awake?

    Tonight, I have the JOY of wildlife. A fucking mocking bird. It's almost 2 AM and it decides that NOW is a good time to sing. It's right outside my window, but can I find it? Noooo. No, of course not. If I had a gun I'd be shooting WILDLY out my window trying to silence it.

    Dear Bird,
    I'm fucking tired. Let me sleep. Tomorrow, I'm buying a roasted chicken and hanging it outside my house as a warning to you and your kind. LET THE HUMANS SLEEP!
    Sincerely,
    Zeta

    PS> I hate you.

    I have a cat that does all the "Waking-owner-up-just-as-she-falls-asleep" business. Birds honestly lull me to sleep.

    Yep.....

    usually it's my annoying ass neighbors. At night it's the dad who always goes to his car at 3 am and leaves their 1500 watt beacon of a porchlight on.

    Or in the mornings when their equally annoying child, who is either autistic or has no freakin excuse, bangs on my door or hits my window with a basketball.

    What pisses me off is when you are just exhausted/dead tired, flop down into a warm bed and juuuuust about to drift off and.....................


    .........YOUR FRIGGIN BODY SUDDENLY JERKS YOU AWAKE FOR NO REASON!


    I swear, it only happens to me when I'm absolutly dead tired. It happens a couple of times too.

    Oh...and I hate when in the summer my friggin neighbor (who's garage window is next my bedroom window) decides to do some welding at 2:00 in the morning. UGH!

    When I was in college, I lived in a townhome with my roomates and once there was a dude banging a hammer at like 2 in the morning. Seriously, why do people get the urge to do home improvement then of all times?

    Sometimes I'll be laying on the couch and fall asleep for maybe 5 or 10 minutes. Then I'll wake up, shut the tv off and go to bed, only to lie there awake for no reason at all.

    Sometimes all it takes is for one stray thought to enter my mind and get it all worked up again. Next thing I know, it's 3am and I still can't go to sleep.

    A couple of years ago, the rhythm half of a band lived in the apartment next door. They'd frequently come home at 3am and start jamming for a few minutes, just long enough to wake me up, and then they'd go to bed... only to wake up at 9am the next morning and start practicing again. And if it wasn't the bass and drums, it was one of them hitting the heavy bag they hung up in there. I was so happy when those bastards moved out.

    Really loud crickets, seriously they must have a speaker or three hidden in the bushes outside my window. I live in the sticks so maybe it could be there bigger than city crickets, have to sleep with my window closed or I get zero sleep. Fragging insects:banghead: 

    Also do the jerk awake when I'm almost asleep though I have epliepsy so it could be tied to that; it's so violent that it's spooked my boyfriend. No I didn't fall out of bed just my body being a pain in the ass.

    *listens* damn crickets!

    I hate when I'm trying to fall asleep and someone wants to start up a conversation. And most of the time pretend like they don't see you drifting off and waking up.

    The jerking awake is funny sometimes especially when you see someone else do it.

    I get the sensation I've just fallen off a cliff and I just jerk awake.

    Been there done that. I always attributed that to the body falling asleep before ones brain. Still always freaks me out. Sometimes it happens several times to me in a matter of minutes.

    The 'jerking awake' thing is something that's happened to me many times over. Despite receiving a medical education, nothing I've learned has helped me explain this phenomenon.

    I blame 'dem immigrants.

    First they stole our jobs, then they give us Swine Flu, now they're invading our dreams.

    That's how I usually wake up from a dream that ends with me falling.

    Our dogs are good at barking, just as I'm starting to nod off. Often quieting down just long enough for me to start to nod off again, then more barking.

    The really annoying one, is just as I'm on the edge of sleep, I'll have what I can only consider to be an audio dream that's so loud it wakes me up. My own brain is out to get me.

    And sometimes, it's just an idot going past with a fart pipe on his beat to death four banger that he insists upon revving far too high to be good for an engine that sounds that bad.
