Sleep...

I've always wondered what I do when I'm asleep. For obvious reasons, this is not easy to find out. So, I thought it would be a novel idea to set up my digital camera to automatically take a photo, say once every 15 minutes or so, and I would end up with a collage of nocternal activity by morning. However, I then realised, unlike my old Samsung 35mm compact, my digital Pentax Optio S4i doesn't have such a feature allowing me to do this... So I didn't... Darn :-(
Instead, I filmed myself on my digital camcorder... Woot :-)
I awoke this morning to find one and half hours of footage of myslef asleep (no surprises there), although even on Long Play, it's not really enough time, but to be honest it wasn't very intersting anyway; and no, I didn't watch the whole thing through LOL, I just scanned it for movement.
I turned over once, shuffled around two or three times and made a few grunting sounds, but other than that, nothing. I was hoping to catch myself talking or doing something strange, but no such luck. I'm sure there must be strange things you do in your sleep without knowing, but after last nights experiment, I think I'm going to leave them hidden for the time being.

FYI: This day in 1858, the first electric burglar alarm was installed in Boston Massachusetts.
One peice of useless information to keep on board for a pub quiz, eh!

Bonus Blog...

I've just finished Dan Browns' 'The DaVinci Code'. What an excellent read. A truely exhilarating book, with twist after twist, ice and a slice. Highly Recommended!
