The weird dreams

Have you ever tried to get your afternoon nap, and experience weird sensations? And no, I am not talking about enhancers as weed, alcohol or other natural or not so natural drugs. Just a pure, healthy and innocent nap.

I tried to do so today. But somehow I feel that in my building I am perceived by the teenagers somewhat of a freak. Or at least something different. Some were ringing my door bell and screaming that they want to speak in English. Today, while I was sleeping I had the impression that somebody rand the bell. And that is when the freaky part began: I was not able to move. I heard the sound, my brain processed it, and I wanted to get up. Not necessarily to check who was at the door, but just to get up. It was like that nightmare that we all have at a point with either getting berried alive or stuck into a dark weird place.

I gave up and felt asleep. Or I was already asleep and my brain was making fun of me. Second try was when I heard a knock on the window. I am sure that was a dream..I hope at least...

And the funny thing is that I am the only expat in the building, and if I really try to talk to those youngsters in English, they will not know how to answer even the "who are you?" question.

Teenagers these days...

The Yoga Disaster

On Tynan

One of the great things about being polyphasic is that my friends are on awful sleep schedules. Some of them stay up until 7am, others wake up at 7am, so at any given time there's a good chance that I have awake friends.

This morning at 7am Hayden calls and asks if I want to do yoga with him. Of course I do. This is the hot yoga, "Bikram", which literally translated means "the most severe torture known to man that somehow hotties can handle".

I hop in my car and head to his place. Hmm. The ride seems a little rough. Not to get too sidetracked, but I thought it would be really cool if I bought 19" rims instead of the stock 16" rims. It looks fantastic, but these stupid wheels have given me nothing but trouble. Literally every single one has gone flat, they have damaged my brakes, etc.
