Am I hallucinating? Spiders when I wake up in the middle of the night.

A couple weeks ago, I had to spend the night in a hotel (long story) downtown in my large city. The hotel was a big chain, generally quite clean, located only about a 5 minute walk from my apartment. I woke up suddenly, in the middle of the night, around 3 AM, and saw a the shadow of a huge spider on the window. [more inside]

Offer music at a wake?

I've recently learned that someone I used to know from when we were both much younger, has died. I knew him only in the context of church and we'd pal around on those Sundays, but we hadn't spoken in years. It's been suggested to me, by my parents, who still attend the church (I don't), that I might play some music at the wake, since I'm a violinist. But it seems to me this might be inappropriate for a few reasons. [more inside]

I've got the opposite sleep problem!

Instead of not being able to get up in the mornings, I have a problem with waking up TOO early. Typically I go to sleep around midnight-1:00 am (it's when I start getting tired) but for the last 2 months or so I've been waking up anywhere between 5:00 am to 7ish, and my alarm doesn't go off until 8:15.

Simulating sunrise on the cheap

Simulating Sunrise: So they sell timers that plug into outlets, and they sell dimmers that plug into outlets. Does anyone know of some way to combine the two that doesn't involve me rewiring the outlets in my apartment? I'm looking to jigger with my circadian rhythms in anticipation of the coming winter darkness.
