Odd Awakenings

Thursday night, I woke up at 5AM with that lost-dream sensation, that sensation where you're trying to remember something that's just slipped from short-term memory, but have no idea what. I got the sense that something important was churning through my mind.

I went back to sleep, and woke again at 7AM, bolt upright, moments before I became aware of my ringing alarm. That was also a strange sensation, since my conscious awareness of my reaction to the alarm ringing definitely preceded my conscious awareness of the ringing alarm, and my awareness that the alarm rang before I woke up followed that (as a matter of conscious perception/recall, not just logical inference). It was like I could observe my mind hastily revising its account of events. Kind of cool.

This night (that is, Friday night / Saturday morning), I did not sleep well at all. Slept from midnight to 6AM poorly, then was in that state of "still tired but very awake".

Other things: Eris' newly-acquired standing ability is a bit nerve-wracking, since it really increases the number of moderate hazards present, just in terms of opportunities for unplanned vertical transitions. Seems like it would be easy for her to misjudge her endurance or her footing and make sudden acquaintance with the floor. She hasn't taken too many bumps so far, though.

Eristic improvements: Reverse peek-a-boo, first tentative attempt to move forward with the baby walker (something like this).

Oooh, standing? That's the beginning of the end, you know. From there it's just a hop, skip, and a jump away from running (not to mention actual hopping, skipping, and jumping) and then it's all over.

Well, you've got no choice on the college front.
