@hchavers I haven’t flown much and I thought I’d never be able to sleep but on a very long flight from Norita, Japan to Singapore I zonked out for a really long time. I was finally awakened by some REALLY rough turbulence. Things that weren’t secured were flying all over. I thought seatbelt warnings for turbulence were unnecessary. Not after that.
@guyfromhawthorn@unksol Last night, Dude3 was accidentally left in the other half of the house, so Momcat6 spent pretty much the whole night by the connecting door. It was MUCH more peaceful without those two in the bedroom. (And much less snugglesome at times, too.)
I live way out in the sticks. As such I do not have any window coverings, since only the wild life look in. So in the summer it is light when I go to bed and when I wake up. In the winter the opposite is true. And I sleep well all year long. So I guess I do not care.
So if you can sleep through a polka or a schottische, you’re ok, eh? Slow down the music, take two steps to the right and two steps to the left and then a turn in four steps.
If you can do this while asleep, my friend, you may have the dreaded schottische noctambulate syndrome. Seek help immediately before it degrades into deadly polka noctambulism.
And then…and then…and then… you may be doomed to forever dance the Zombie Polka
Lyrics – Zombie Polka
When the shadows fall on the cemetery wall
And there’s no one else around
And you feel like someone’s watching you
From six feet underground
When the moon is high and the eerie eye
Of a black cat falls upon ya
One by one through the mist they come
to do the Zombie Polka
And their bony hands will beckon you
To join their ghostly dance
And you’ll wonder why you chose tonight
To wear your polka pants
When the raven cries in the darkened skies
And the tombstones topple over
The church bells chime in 2/4 time
They do the Zombie Polka
Zombie Polka pulls you closer with a deadly beat
Zombie Polka run for home before they eat your feet
If you dance tonight they will take a bite
And make you one of them
Then you’ll lie and wish for a night like this
To rise and dance again
When you hear the moans
And their creaky bones
Are reaching out to choke ya
If you don’t run, before the night is done
You’ll do the Zombie Polka
Oh they all come and dance about
And do the Zombie Polka
I can’t sleep with any light, even alarm clock light bother me (I don’t even have one). I always figured that’s why I can’t take naps. I slept in a basement for about a year when I was a teenager, nothing beat that. Absolute darkness and cool air.
