ou're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop... the Denny Shane Zone!

Have I traveled into the Twilight Zone? Maybe I've died and I am in heaven? Nah, if anything I am on the lower floors.

I had enough of the days' activities... blogging, reading, writing, researching, grocery shopping, the post office and now I wanted some me time. You know, that special time of the day when I allow my brain to transform itself into the Denny Shane Bubble Gum Factory?

Previously I had watched the Nightly News and started flipping through the channels. There was a rehash of Court TV's coverage of the priest accused of murdering a nun 24 years ago... Click. Rerun of CSI #23 which I've seen 10 times... Click.

I finally decided on the SciFi channel. Yes, this is what I needed after watching the Nightly News... good old fashioned horror to take my mind off of world events. Somehow I thought I could better deal with watching people having their brains eaten and their intestines pulled out rather than watching one more car bombing in Iraq.

Got a glass of ice tea, fluffed my pillow and laid back and relaxed. Ooooohhhh, this felt good... so good... I looked over at the clock on the bookcase and it was 7:00 PM. Now, as unbelievable as this sounds... from the miniscule time it took for my eyes to go from clock back to TV, I fell asleep!! Dead to the world!!

The next thing I knew I opened my eyes and I swear they were still in mid-flight between the clock and TV. Of course I didn't know that I fell asleep until my eyes darted back to the clock and it said 12:01 AM. What???????? I looked at the TV... no zombie looking people munching on body parts... it was some psycho slasher movie.

I was dumb-founded. I looked around and all the lights were on, computer was whirring away, there were hundreds of instant messages. Now this wasn't the first time this has happened but I think it's the first time it happened so fast! Instantly.

Has this ever happened to you?
