    Technique: I went to bed at 1 and had to drive my Dad to the airport at 5:30. I usually don't have any dreams for the first three or four hours of sleep anyway, and when the alarm went of at 5:30 I couldn't remember any dreams There may have been a dream fragment but it was pretty worthless all in all.

    I got back at 6 and went back to bed until 7, when I drove my brother-in-law to the dentist. I didn't really have any dreams during that hour either, but the real fun started when I was snoozing my alarm, something I don't usually do. I had four false awakenings! These are my first FA's since I started my DJ and I am so excited about them! I know many lucid dreams start out as FA, I was very disappointed that I hadn't had any before. If I hadn't been so stinking tired I know I could have turned each of these into a short lucid, as they were very vivid and I was pretty aware in them. Even aware that it was a FA, I just didn't have the energy to do anything with that knowledge

    Dream One: I am on a plane sleeping. I wake up because I get a phone call, it is my Dad. We talk about something for awhile, I am not really paying attention because I am so tired.

    He asks me something, how am I supposed to know that? My friend J.T would know, maybe I can ask him?

    I look up and J.T is in the seat in front of me... I know he wasn't there before... oh well, convenient

    I ask him about my Dad's question, and he gives me some answer I don't remember. I go to tell my Dad what J.T said, but I seem to have lost my phone! More like it disappeared actually.

    Great! How am I supposed to tell my... I look up... my Dad is sitting across from me on the other side of the isle. I KNOW he wasn't there before. I may be dreaming? To tired to care... The dream fades

    FA 1: My alarm goes off, oh it can't be time to go to the dentist already! I get out of bed, I notice things are a little weird and do a nose RC. I can still breath through my nose. Oh well.. I know I am dreaming but I am to tired to care (Stupid dream logic!!). I go into the bathroom and start to get ready to leave anyway.

    FA 2: My alarm goes off again. I reach and hit the alarm. I can't believe I hit the snooze button last time! Now I am going to make us late!

    I am laying in bed, but I am just to tired to get out of bed. Again I think that things are weird. I don't bother with an RC, I know I am dreaming this time, but I still don't do anything about it! To tired! (NOOOOOO)

    I know I need to get out of bed and start getting ready. I am thinking it would be nice if there was a dog in the house to come lick my face and help me wake up... Oh look! My aunt and uncle are here with their puppies! They come and jump on me and I am excited to see them. I manage to get out of bed and start getting ready.

    FA 3: The alarm goes off. Oh NO! I hit the snooze again! We are SOOOOO late!

    I know I should get out of bed, but I am just so tired. At this point I am really loosing motivation to get out of bed, I have already used up all my motivation in the last two FA. Do I really have to get out of bed again!?

    I see one of my aunt and uncles dogs, they are still here? I get a sudden burst of motivation to pet the puppies and I jump out of bed to go and scratch their bellies!

    Screw getting ready, I just play with the puppies for a while. Then the dream fades.

    When I did finally wake up, RC'ed about a jillion times to be sure! I actually felt pretty rested I was afraid I would be tired like in the FA but I wasn't. I got up and showered no problem.

    Analysis: I may start experimenting with the snooze button to see if I can reproduce these results, hopefully with more lucidity next time! I think FA was a combination of the snooze button, and my anxiety knowing that I only had one hour left to sleep. Not that this will be fun, but next time before a big morning event I may wake myself up two hours before hand and then go back to bed intending to snooze. But then again, that could be the recipe for one hella crapy day.
