My roommate K-mack does wierd stuff in her sleep. When we travel together and share a room she's always talking nonsense or asking questions, engaging god knows who in conversation. What's creepy is that it's not a sleepytime tired voice, it's her normal out-loud voice, as if she's wide awake and happy to be chatting. I've also seen her run around the room and leap onto the bed and then declare "Apparently... Oofdah." And last year in Germany, I woke up to find her sitting straight up in bed and swinging her arms furiously at my feet, patting down blankets as if she was desperately looking for something, but her eyes were shut tight. I said "What're you doing?" and she got all snotty as if it was the stupidest question she'd ever heard, and she said "Um, I'm looking for something," so I said "Do you know that you're asleep? You're freaking me out." Then she plopped back down in bed and said, clear as day, "Shut up. Go to sleep." I've even seen her have conversations with OTHER sleeptalkers, like when we were on vacation with her brother, and he said something in his sleep about going to a rodeo, and she replied, "We ain't at no rodeo, Mike."
Anyway, it scares the hell out of me and I've seriously considered getting a lock on my bedroom door, because from what I've seen, she could easily believe, while in some dream-induced sleepwalking stupor, that I'm some sort of creature that needs a good stabbing. Or what if she's like this lady, who allegedly goes into town and picks up dudes for random sex, all while fast asleep? Yuck, I don't want none of that, either.

HIDE THE KNIVES! Not to feed your paranoia--which you are certainly justified in--but my younger brother, prone to wild sleepwalking/talking bouts, once raided the cupboard of all the saltines, which he emptied into his bed, then proceeded to jump up and down on, shouting obscenities. What those poor crackers ever did to him, I'm not sure. When I attempted to divert his sleep-attention...which I thought I had...he calmly walked to the kitchen, took out a carving knife, and stabbed me in the lower back. (I had since rolled over to try and go back to sleep) I live alone now, thank goodness!

I suggest laying trip wire by her door and putting out security lights.

I am a sleepwalker. I usually do it when I am extremely tired and/or stressed. Luckily, my sleepwalking activities are pretty much walking around the house and turning on lights. I have been doing this for at least 25 years (I'm 36 now). My mom would hear me get up in the middle of the night and after a bit, she would get up to see what I was doing. Most of the time I was standing in the middle of the living room with the lights on. She would say, "Go back to bed." and that is all it took. I would head back to bed and not remember any of it in the morning.

You know she's just blaming her infedility on sleep-sexin'. More power to her.
I have a friend who eats in his sleep. He'll wake up in the morning to find the milk container still on kitchen counter, along with cereal box and used, but empty, cereal bowl.
My Mother once found me frantically crawling down the hallway convinced that a train was coming at me. However, thinking back on my teenage years, that may have been induced by alcohol.

Greg was talking about a speakeasy the other night.
I asked him what he was taliking about and he said "leave me alone"
Greg is also really mean in his sleep.He usually takes whatever attitude I give him when he is awake,but if I tell him to go to sleep if he has fallen asleep with the t.v. on or something he will say to mind my own buisness.Then he fully wakes up,and gets scared because he knows better then to talk to me like that.

My husband is a sleep-talker when he's dreaming. Usually it's along the lines of him being completely disgusted with something or someone, saying things like "Well THAT'S just GREAT" or "Gee, THANKS" all sarcastic like...as if he's talking to some huge asshole or something. It used to wierd me out, now I am not even phased. Sometimes if I talk to him, he'll even talk back. It's pretty funny...

This is great, my husband does the same thing. Here are some fun/intersting facts about my husband's sleeping alter ego:
1. he usually appears wide awake, no sleepy eyes.
2. he usually spouts off in french twice - after my second "what?", he says "oh, sorry" and translates his sleep talk to english for me.
3. once in a while he scores points, like the time he told me that I was his mermaid (unlike the time he told me I was blue, or that he had to pee-pee-pee-p-pee)
He never remembers these episodes.
He's done no harm thus far so until I end up with a butcher knife in the calf (at which point I'll take another approach) I just laugh my ass off.

Ok, seriously, I have heard of sleep-walkers, sleep-talkers, and even someone who breakdances in their sleep, but to walk outside of your locked house and engage in intercourse???? Well I at least hope she used protection.

I wasn't really sleeping. I was just messin' with ya. Got you good. Ha ha. People, feel free to sleep with me, I won't kill ya! I promise!

Wow, Kristina. That sounds like you've got yourself an open invitation out there. I'm not going to take you up on it, but I'd watch out for Choco-Latte'. You could have some very interesting knocks on your door.

I just didn't want people to fear death if they ever found themselves in a position where they might have to share sleeping quarters with me. I don't need thrill seekers coming over to see if they can make it through a night with me as if they where spending the evening in a haunted house or old abandoned insane asylum where the spirits of psychotics still roam the hallways.
