Are you a sleepwalker or sleeptalker?

While I talk in my sleep pretty frequently (often coming up with such gems of words as “bofenus” and telling people not to stick their foot in the peanut butter), I sleepwalk only very rarely. In fact, it had been years since I sleptwalk last… until last Friday night. It was only a few steps, but it was still quite weird to wake up in a different place then where I went to sleep.

I bet Pingers have some good sleepwalking/talking stories…

I suffer with sleepwalking,normally i dont mind cos everyone loves tellin me what iv done or about 70 % of the time i actually remember bits of the sleepwalking so its funny,but i hate it now!
Last nite i stayed round my boyfriends grandparents house,i went to sleep but at about 2.30am i decided to get up as i thought it was time for work,i then went and started to run a bath…
The next thing i remember getting up about 2:50 and i go back into the bathroom and its flooded,still not really awake and convinced its work time i run and wake my boyfriend up,tellin him iv flooded the bathroom.
He tells me its 3 am wot am i goin on about,but i insist its work time.
It was terrible,id flooded the bathroom and the kitchen too and i didnt even realise till i looked at the clock and it all started to sink in what was going on.
It was terrible,i feel totally awfull but it was out of my control.
Iv hurt myself from sleepwalking before,scared my friends and boyfriend,made people laugh but now iv actually ruined someones bathroom and there was nothing i could do to stop it.

In my sleepover my friend who hates ;ink and loves black fell asleep first. So me and my other friends decided to paint her nails (and toe nails) pink. We did it and she started to get up. She stood up, and we started to0 say “Harley, your nails are pinks! HOT pink!” She didn’t respond. We started to yell almost, and she stretched and sat on her sleeping bag. She mumbled “dumbasses” and went to sleep. When she woke up, she didn’t remember it (and didn’t beleive she woke up) and insulted us throughly.

Another time, I got up and walked down my hallway. My mom stopped me and woke me up. I woke up standing, and didn’t know what to say when she asked “what are you?” I felt like i needed to get something out of the kitchen, but I didn’t know what, so… I made up something quickly to stay out of trouble. I said “I needed excercise.” Not my best excuse -.-‘

so the night before this incident, I was at a party drinking, had a little under a 5th of makers and a coulpe of beers. I am used to consuming ths much alcohol cause i am a college student, but needless to say I was feeling good. Earlier that morning I had a final at 8, so i only got 2 hrs of sleep the night before (later i found that alcohol and lack of sleep can enduce sleepwalking). When i got back to my house I turned on the Tv and went to bed around 2-230. the next night a was talking to one my room mates( which is a girl, im not). we started reminiscing about the night before, and she said, Do you remember what you did last night? I said no, what? She said around 5am she woke up to find me beside her. she said, this isnt your bed. I said, Oh, can i just sleep here. She said no and started screaming, hitting and kicking me, pushed me out of her bed, which is only a mattress on the floor, and i guess i walked back in my room and got back in bed. As far as I know this is my only sleepwalking experience i have had, I dont rembember it at all. when she first started telling me about it i asked her if she was lying. and the thing that I find the strangest is that i didnt wake up when she was hitting and kicking me. Pretty crazy, but it gets even better, later that night i remember I had a dream that I was in my bed with my x girl friend laying on my chest. So this dream could have promted it, or maybe I dreamt it after i went in her room. Sleepwalking is CRAZY and interesting.
