I have developed this reflex of answering the phone and talking on it while asleep. Often, I usually just make inarticulate "Mmmm?" noises, and sometimes mumbling things like, " 'Mmm sleepin'." Other times, I - stupidly - try to pretend that not only am I awake, I've been awake for a long time. "'Mmm not sleeping, I jus' got of th'showr," I'll say, which if people believe it, will probably convince them that I'm drunk or something, but it's always completely clear that I am, in fact, asleep. Even if I vehemently deny it, which I sometimes do. I get weirdly embarrased about being asleep when people call me sometimes. I don't know why, but it's like, "Oh, you're being so responsible and awake! and I am languishing here in my bed."

At any rate, this morning it seems that I had a five minute conversation on the phone, while asleep and I have only the slightest memory of it. I wonder vaguely if I promised my kidney to anyone or told my deepest darkest secrets. It's not a pressing concern, because I doubt I had the presence of mind to do anything but make interrogative noises and sounds that could be construed as assent or disagreement depending on what the other person wanted to hear. Still, I think this is something I'd be better off training myself out of.

In other news, I'm justifying my laundry procrastination by telling myself it's utterly fine to really not want to run into the neighbors. It's not that they're bad people, it's just that they make me strangely uncomfortable, the lot of them. Because they're all family type people living family type lives, with children etc., and then there's me. And I don't much need to say anything about that difference, do I?

I've been reading other people's reactions to last night's BSG, and I have to say I'm really surprised that I seem to have been in the minority in my opinion on the episode. A lot of people seem to think that it was a weak episode, which I definitely didn't. Also, it occurs to me that the more I think about Lee, the more I love him. And Cain, oh, Cain. I want to do a post about her sometime soon. Remind me, would you all?

I'm absolutely loving the turn they gave with Lee, and the bird's eye view of the attack of the ship that his situation gave us.

And I wouldn't really peg him as suicidal, but I can sort of understand his feeling of, "I am so very very tired of this shit, can it please end now?"

(unspoiled spec) Ooooo, wouldn't it be fitting and fun if he slept with Gina? mmm. And the way he answered Kara when she asked if he was alright? Quietly broke my damn heart. I really have to rewatch soon, especially that first scene. Interesting moment for him to hit bottom, emotionally. Some people have been all, "I want him bitch and snarky and not being the brooding prince" but. . . I want both. Sue me.

Yay depth. I also love that he has the self awareness about this, and considering how very thinky he is, it'll be interesting to see where he goes. Because when you realize you wouldn't mind dying... can make living far more interesting.

There was at least one occasion while dating my now-husband that I called him up about exactly when he was picking me up in two days for the weekend spent doing this, that, and the other, and confirmation about itinerary details and such, only to discover that when he called me the following night he had no memory of the conversation or even the call.

And then there was the time he answered the phone, "Officer Thus-and-so, K dormitory." (From when he was working at the prison) And proceeded to ask me how the hell I got a line into the prison. The conversation from there was highly amusing.
