The Exorcism of Scaredy Smurf

So last night I woke up at 5:00 a.m. because there was a fire in our apartment. The smell of the smoke knocked me out of slumber hard. I jumped out of bed, and ran to the kitchen. I checked the oven, but it wasn't coming from there. I checked the smoke detector in the hall, but it seemed everything was all right with that. I checked the iron, but it was unplugged. Then I realized the smell of smoke wasn't out in the hallway; it must be coming from our room. I went back in there, but it didn't smell in there, either. I had dreamed the whole thing, it seemed.

I got a new job today. I'll be making ten dollars per hour, which is a lot better than the library, and my hours are better hours, too. The job might suck, but at least I can earn some cash, huh? And maybe I'll really like it.

I saw The exorcism of Emily Rose tonight. In it, three of the characters wake up in a panic in the middle of the night, sure they can smell smoke, but completely unable to locate the source of the fire. In each case, this is the first step the demons take in haunting the person, and in Emily Rose's case, it's leads eventually to her possesion by six demons, and then her violent death. My first girlfriend back in 8th grade was named "Emily Rose." I have a cousin named that, as well. Odd.

Anyway, nobody be surprised if I end up with scary black eyes, losing teeth as I try to chew through the wall. Or if Asmond has simply taken up smoking.

Its been like two weeks and I'm still afraid to look at my clock when I wake up unexpectedly in the night for fear it just may be 3 a.m.
did you catch the virgin's cameo?

Creeeepy. Um. Best of luck with that. ? Here's hoping you don't get haunted. ?

Yeah, nothing's sounding right. Interesting post, though.

A very similar thing happened to me recently. I woke up to the taste of blood and went straight to the sink to spit it all out. There was definitely no blood; I had just been dreaming a very weird dream about sawing bodies apart in some sort of macabre tv show competition.

This is a fun post. One time I woke up and actually had blood in my mouth. It was because my mouth got so dry that it cracked and I bled all ove in my mouth. Let me just say that brushing blood off of yellow teeth is nearly impossible. It gets all gooey.
