Michael just finished up his finals this week and last night I woke up to Michael standing besides the bed. I asked him what he was doing. He played it off like what he was doing was perfectly normal. I wanted to get him back in bed and back to sleeping. I started asking him questions and tried to talk him out of standing beside the bed. I was half-awake and only remember him starting to talk about dental terms. He said something about my dad and an RPD (removable partial denture).
I fell back asleep after the first episode. Later on Michael woke me because he was talking to me. He said "It's weird you do not think your dad needs an RPD." I asked him "Why do you think my dad needed an RPD?" A few seconds later he replied with "Why do you keep waking me up?" I finally went back to sleep.
I think I need to have a name for Michael’s second personality when he sleeps.

I love the picture of Haley's speech. Our reactions are priceless.

We watched "Food Inc." and "Valentino: The Last Emperor" last week and I started to think about my favorite documentaries. Many documentaries I have seen have stayed with me in a way fictional movies have not. I'm always so intrigued by the peek into the way some people live and the way other people think. Maybe it's the same reason Michael likes watching MTV's "16 and Pregnant."
Here's my list . . .
Fog of War
Mad Hot Ballroom
Little Dieter Needs to Fly
The Gleaners and I
Many of my favorites have been added to watch instantly on Netflix and I'm thinking about revisiting a few.
