For a few seconds (whilst driving) I completely forgot how to drive. :s Luckily I was on a car park and just rolled for a few yards before remembering what the hell I was doing.

No offense, but how the fuck do you do that?
Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.

Pass. It's never happened before. Maybe their was some subliminal stuff going down in the movie i'd just been watching (A Cock and Bull Story). Or more likely it was one of those situations like when you go in a room and can't remember what you went in for, except in a car.

i forgot how to answer the phone once. although to be fair i had been sleeping and the ringing of the phone woke me up. i grabbed the phone, read the caller ID, knew it was the call i was waiting around for, and just stared at it not knowing what the hell to do. she called back a couple minutes later though and i successfully pushed "Talk".

although, in hindsight, i was better off not answering it.

I often forget how to do anything in the morning. It's sometimes funny, sometimes annoying. Normally I am unable to figure out how to sit up or put on clothes, tie shoes, brush teeth, the list goes on. It's a wonder that my fiance can put up with me. I also get delirious to the point that I'm certain I have to do something that I can't even explain. We often get in arguments about how it's impossible for me to go to work "without getting the boxes" or "cleaning the glass plates." However, it's always as a result of me being half asleep still. And, I've also done the phone thing before as well.

I went to an ATM on Saturday, put in my card and started pressing '3' '0', because that's the amount I wanted. I didn't think about pressing in my pin, or the fact that you push one button next to the £30 sign.
Doh.....
this is only one thing in a long list of things that makes me think I'm suffering early dementia. one other being trying to put a dirty top in the fridge, instead of the washing machine (obviously).

i have the nonsensical mumblings sometimes when i wake up too, i recall one similar to yours actually involving "cleaning the stained glass". i wish i was more like my brother in that regard, he can't form words when he's half asleep, just mumbly noises. it doesn't sound quite as ridiculous that way. although i did hear him mutter something once about eating a beanbag.

Not sure if this should go here or the sad thread... I just was getting ready to leave and I usually check my posts to see if I posted 25 that day or came close and I realized it's after frickin' midnight :cry:

I just started to feel tired when I saw Feb 01. Getting up tomorrow's going to be a pain.

SEATTLE - A gynecologist convicted of raping and fondling women who came to his clinics for treatment was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison.

Charles Momah performed gynecological exams without wearing gloves, sexually touched patients, probed them unnecessarily with a vaginal ultrasound wand and flirted with them inappropriately, prosecutors alleged.

The obstetrician-gynecologist prescribed addictive painkillers for no good medical reason, pressured patients into surgeries and double-billed insurance companies for procedures, documents say.

He was convicted nearly three months ago of two counts of rape and two counts of indecent liberties with patients.

"They will be sleeping with both eyes closed for the first time in so many years," said lawyer Harish Bharti, who is representing dozens of women in lawsuits against Momah and his twin, who allegedly sometimes pretended to be the gynecologist.

In 2000, a former patient, Jolie Campbell, told the King County Sheriff's Office that Momah had performed unnecessary surgery on her, deliberately gotten her addicted to painkillers, raped her five years earlier and told her no one would believe her if she reported the rape because she was addicted to drugs.

Prosecutors decided there wasn't enough evidence to file charges.

Momah continued practicing until Sept. 11, 2003, when his license was suspended after another patient reported being raped. By June 2004, 44 women had sued him.

I think I already saw this movie in the 80's. And Jeremy Irons was great in it. Even if it was a sick twisted flick.
